Leigh have signed 2 in a week with Bienek on a season loan from Hull.
Kibula is an option for us, but in an interview he’s just said he is looking forward to being able to play for the reserves to try and get into the first team rather than having to go out on dual reg to get some game time.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Yes that’s the one although it was more of a push. It was playing for Dewsbury against Swinton he then played for Swinton for the rest of the season!</p>
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Warrington have just signed another prop from the NRL so that could increase the chances of him going out on loan. At least one of the things he didn’t like about going out on loan, the traveling wouldn’t be a factor At Widnes. He’s 6″3 and 17 stone, 20 years old.</p>
Lets face it we’d be grateful for any prop who was half decent at the moment. Listening to Tim Sheens though, he still has nightmares about losing most of his props to injury at Hull KR, so I’m sure he will keep beating the drum to the Board for another 1 or 2!
Sheens undoubtedly wants another prop but not just any prop. So hopefully feelers are still going out but it is getting awfully close to the start of the season.
For Gerrard, I really wanted him to do well but a real barnstorming prop needs to turn up at every game, and not just when he feeels like it which I felt was the case with him. Maybe at a different club with a different coach he may achieve his potential. He’s just taking a long time to do it.
