Leeds injuries

27 posts in this topic

What will happen now with the injuries Leeds picked up last night? How many players can Hunslet have this weekend? I aren't the biggest Leeds fan but still not nice seeing players injured.

Agreed not nice to see players getting injured. IMO Leeds have a few older players not at the races and picking up more injuries. Their big stars are all getting old together. As for Hunslet this was always the big risk relying on other clubs players. We Will miss them without a doubt.

It is a gamble and the thing is now if Leeds do pull the players out are the players stepping in gonna be match fit?

I don't think it's a matter of if. I'm sure Leeds Will pull them back. We're not at the best with the dual reg lads so i think we Will definataly struggle without them.

I still can't see Hood or Watson getting in the first team so I think we'll have them, losing Keinhorst would be a blow, not sure how they're fixed for centres now Watkins is crocked, but he's the most likely of the regular DR's to be called back

Not sure how it'll affect Moore & Achurch, neither played last night

When can we see the team news for tomorrow?

Do we have Moore and Achurch available?

Please don't ask for Vickery or Ben Jones Bishop. One is rubbish and the other isn't fit.

Bit worried about the half back combo, think Coyle and Windley might be the best option.

best getting away from rhinos.use our own players and if we get relegated then fine.with the budget we operate on probably best in league 1 and build with more local talent.how many fans would we lose ? Attendance figures are not Great in this league so lets move on without rhinos

if we go down, then going to be really hard with little or no away support from the visiting teams.

 

relegation will be a disaster

Not sure i agree.away support as been poor this season.Maybe a chance of winning would attract people.HIST are doing a great job off pitch but Eaton not doing anything for us really with the players he as.

i agree about hist and about Eaton. We still have the big supported teams to come ie fax,fev and Leigh so their support could be crucial for us but i agree apart from those they away support is poor

Dead right Green Brigade. With Hunslet having probably the lowest playing budget in the Championship what do fans really expect. No disrespect to our players as I'm sure they play to the best of their capabilities but a coach can only coach so much the rest is up to the players, if it aint there.....

how many times have you watched this team play??? This is the best squad of players we've had since 99. But we play with no direction, no leadership and no set plays. Our best 2nd rower is sat in the stand every week so if its not the coach's fault then who's fault is it.

Dave Clayton? Yeah he was our best second rower last year, sadly his form is no where near as good as last year.

As for the squad it could be the worlds best squad but without a good 6 & 7 its always going to struggle.

There have been spells in games when we have looked good, but 9 times out of 10 were chasing the game due to bad starts.We might not have a large budget but we get 5 Rhinos most games who have performed well most of the time.No doubt next coach could be from Headingley !!!

You might get the gist of what av been saying all season. Once we lose any of the rhinos contingent, we will be expecting a hunslet lad to step in and perform like a rhino. It aint going to happen because they aint had game time, so they won't have had chance to develop as a player and improve as the season goes on. The hunslet players surely cant be happy with this D/R, and i wouldn't expect them to tell coaching staff how they really feel (shooting yourself in foot comes to mind). D/R  hasn't really improved us in terms of league position and points wise (even with Grimmer in), were still stuggling. If everything is about playing rhinos lads you might aswell go the whole hogg and have a rhinos coach, For me its a downward spiral for Hunslet and they've only got themselves to blame for allowing it to happen. D/R should be a maximum of two and both under the age of twenty.(JUST MY OPINION)

As regards turning to the Hawks for players, he added: "All our players are dual-registered with Hunslet, but equally all Hunslet's players are dual-registered with us.

"It may be Hunslet have got a player who could fit the bill for us. We have no plans to go outside our academy or the arrangement with Hunslet."

Interesting words from Mr Hetherington on sky sports news...

Do we have anyone that could make the step up to SL or is it a bridge too far standard wise?

Also would Barry get a say in agreeing it or would it be what Gary wants Gary gets?!

Year round fishing down here mate :-)

I havent seen this current squad of players so its a serious question, would anyone be good enough to fit the bill dual reg going the other way? Theres been players down the years that could have held their own at that level...

Il answer that question based on the fact that Joe Vickery plays every week for Leeds, so IMO I do think we have players who can step up to that level.
