Agreed on this.
Also more press on Nene to Leeds yesterday (Leeds Live) saying the move is almost complete.


I don't think Nene plays to his full potential plus his defence needs a lot of work. He missed the 2nd half against England and the defence on that side improved.

When the rumour first circulated about Leutele to Leigh and Nene to Leeds, it seemed like losing a good player to gain a good player. Leutele is a proper centre and potentially in tandem with Hardaker is a formidable pairing. McDonald does not offer that edge play and looks a little iffy against big wide players.

Personally let him go, use the Salary cap to buy a British monster Prop, if we can snag one.

[url][/url]If I was Derek I’d be pulling out all the stops to get Hill from Huddersfield, offer a 2 year deal to give him some security. Hill would be the final piece for me a big minutes middle.

Same way we got Higham back.

Prior to this World Cup a lot of folk would have pooh-poohed that suggestion, Binosh, but he has more than justified Wane's faith in him and there's a Chris Hill shaped hole in next season's Leigh team.

Bring him home.

Now watch him have a stinker as England crash out this afternoon! :lol:

Hilly had a blinder and played long minutes again, but you put the hex on us Bongser :wink:
I’d have him back for at least next season if there is any way to make it happen.

Bongser feels like he's played (vainly) for 80 minutes! At least Addo-Carr won't get a crack at a rather dodgy English right.

Go Samoa in The Final!

Not Bongser's doing, Vanners. Forget the haka (or whatever the Samoan equivalent is called), England were doomed from the moment they responded to a beefy contralto belting out the opposing anthem with a twee little tenor - where do we repeatedly unearth this crud from? Didn't pay attention at the time but "God Save The King" is generally played in G major. A decent bass-baritone would be able to cadence upwards in that key if that's what the hoi polloi crave!

That’s funny. I actually said a way less educated version of what you said to my son :lol:
Give us rousing version the whole stadium can get behind and sing with.

Bongser I can’t remember the rendition in the Thomas Burke you treated everyone to , but I’m sure you giving a half time or even a pre match Aria would stir the loins on even the most ardent of fans , backed by a couple of Leopardesses.
