where does anybody say that Leeds have taken them up on the offer? just because an offer has been made, they're not obliged to accept it


Spot on.

I'd try and swap for David Stagg or Dene Halatau.

And who, pray, is going to give Leeds a penny for a guy who clearly doesn't want to be here. What is the point of the 100,000 announcement?

He signed a 3 year contract for Leeds, so thats why they want a transfer....IMHO he'll go back for nothing.


or

He'll signed for a BIG Super League club for the next two years wink.gif

leeds are hoping for a bit of compensation.. they know they wont get a transfer fee..

Eastwood is a class player, shame it didnt work out for him.. he wont be the first or the last big name signing to come over and not settle in..

you've seen what Englands got to offer have you? This is Yorkshire by the way and not too far from Headingley, so if he wanted he could refresh his batteries without too much trouble.

Yep, people can sneer all they want, but young lads moving to the other side of the world is a pretty big thing, and it wont suit everyone.

We have seen players struggle with form or even cut short their stays for years now, and it is always a consideration when you are relying on overseas players, especially in key positions.

I'm not a Bulldogs fan but respect where it's due.....

Andrew Ryan has played 250+ first grade games for the Bulldogs and Parramatta, is currently the captain of the Dogs, has a premiership ring, has represented NSW 12 times in Origin and Australia 11 times in tests.

Not really a never was.......if he was English, you'd be claiming he was an all time great.

And no, I'm not an Aussie NRL groupie. Just a RL loving Englishman living down under.
