leeds have taken joe vickery on a 3 month trial to see if they want to sign him up .
he is 23 year old and was on the books of the gold coast titans but did not break into there first team but spent last season playing for tweed heads in the queensland cup in which he scored 17 tries.
hull tried to sign him last season but he declined to sign for them but is willing to try out for leeds and will play in all there preseason games and then a decision on him will be made .
he would not count on the overseas quota as he was born in exeter.

looks like another hetherington deal that will get a player in at no big cost to the club and who knows he may turn out to be a good signing
ah a sunday night in front of the telly watching old rugby league games.
does life get any better .

I have seen him play many times but he is not a centre, he is an out and out winger with a good try scoring record.

seems he is quoted as been a centre or winger . then again zak hardacre was supposed to be a centre so who knows .
i saw a few clips of him playing for tweeds and he looks a fair player but it has to be seen if he can step up a bit

Never heard of him and I hear most of the rumours about who Hull FC are trying to sign.

You got any links?

He played amateur rugby at stand off or full back. Then played on the wing or at full back at Featherstone.

Aye, we got him as a winger, not sure how he ended up at centre (I think BJB was supposed to be a fullback as well, wasn't he?)
