It’s been rumoured for a while, and it was announced today that Lee Smith (reigning Harry Sunderland Trophy holder) will be leaving the Rhinos at the end of the season. Smith says he wants to ‘move on to a new challenge’. Am I being cynical when I think that said ‘challenge’ involves some of this stuff?
Wherever he goes, I hope he manages to settle into a fixed position. Of course, the rumours are that he’ll be crossing codes, in which case it will be interesting to see how long he lasts.
