PostSubject: thoughts on griffin to go to Leeds?   Fri Jun 17, 2011 4:57 pm

seems to be a lot of rhinos fans confident that this is the case and that he has signed for them. Dave "nosey" parker linked him with i think Wigan earlier this week and saints have been mentioned too.
I for one would be sorry to see him go, and who do we replace him with? there are not many completely stand out props in SL and i cant think of any that are available so why would the giants let him go?
In fooey, faalogo, simpson and LOD we have our 4 overseas trained for next season - unless LOD finds an Irish grandad quick how can we be looking overseas.
Either griff is unhappy for some reason and has asked to go or the giants have got their sights on someone big...

Griffin is a quality prop, in my opinion is 3rd in our order of props. Having said that he would probably be higher in ranking for most other clubs so might be able to earn a little more at the weaker teams like Leeds or Saints.

For quite a while I didnt consider he ran his weight ---but as been putting himself about quite consistently this season and playing his best rugby at the club since joining in my opinion !

Would like to keep him if possible --but if hes unhappy (as has been reported ) --what can you do ?

This year has been the best year I've seen Griff have since he arrived. Would be sad to see him go as he is a fantastic prop.

Salary cap is apparently causing problems. If they let him go, that will bite us square on the backside in my opinion. He has yet to peak in his career, but the potential with Leroy is huge. Why let him go?

Both are contracted till the end of next year- I can understand griff wanting to go, he may feel aggrieved at them pushing Josh out. But Leroy is a hudds lad who wants to play for his hometown club- I really can't see that this is anything bit a rumor. With bradfords new centre signing why would they want Leroy too?

Someone has made a big mistake in adding up if we have to lose Leroy because of the salary cap. Can't see him leaving myself. He is going to be big, we are going to be big, his career will achieve so much more with his home town club.

Hope they can sort summat out with whatever the problem is.Would not like to lose him.As Crackers said,this year he has really put himself about.Was always a strong carrier of the football but this time imo he's upped the defensive side of his game.

He has got himself fitter and stronger than ever before and IMO is joint best prop with Mason on current form. Would like to keep him but rumours are he doesn't get on with Broughy. Good young prop at Leigh but could see Doof stepping into that role for next season

In it down to pro players to forget personal differences though FP and just get on with the job they are paid for,or this too simplistic in this day and age.Admit I wouldn't know.

If Griff does move on no doubt they will already have irons in the fire regarding a replacement..Doof could prop but already I'm liking him back in the side running that bit wider,that spin and offload to KB for his try was absolute top drawer stuff.

I think it would be a real mistake to let Griff go..he's playing great. I don't care if players don't get on off the field but on the field they are all Giants. I hope Griff stays put, he's in good form.

The strong rumour is that Griff has signed a 3 year deal with the Rhinos. Oh well, at least it means the lad will get picked for England now. I am upset though...Griff has been great for us imo and still has plenty left in him yet.

Didn't think it would be too long before bad boy Brough was roped in to be the villain, Funny thing is the problems that have appeared from time to time with Griff started long before Brough came, I would like Griffin to stay, i rate him , but if he doesn't want to be here It's pointless really.

The sad thing to supporters though Bo is we will never know the full "ins and outs" !
We arent supposed to of course
The rumours that abound are based on someone heard this from someone who knows etc etc etc --but which rumour is nearest the fact is anyones guess so all we really know is ----hes signed for Leeds

Like you -- I think hes playing better at moment than ever in his time at the Giants - and personally will be a loss to the squad

Hopefully a replacement is being negotiated as hese things dont happen "overnight" --and rumours will again go round -but only when the signing is completed will we have anything concrete to comment on

Nothing changes for fans does it?? Wink --just pay up and smile --or frown etc.................................... Neutral

That just about sums it up mate, There are a couple of posters on here who generally seem to get good info, other than that it's usually just rumor and speculation, Anyway i think like you it's a case of "yours is not to know, yours is to pay up and go" and do we really have any right to know anyway, You feel as a supporter "especially someone like you who has done much, and raised funds for the club" that you would like to be in the loop, but in truth you pay your money to go watch whoever the club put on the field, if you don't like it you stay away, Not saying it has ever been so.

I did say apparently he didn't get on with Broughy, it's rumor and not gospel and it's not a dig at Broughy cos if I had to choose it would be him 100% that I would keep out of the 2, he has been awesome for the Giants and we are missing him at the mo.
Players do move on and will be sad to see Griff go but would have been a damn sight sadder if Broughy was off to Weeds.

Yeah sorry mate , I wasn't meaning to get at you, It was just i was expecting Brough's name to come up at some point. Anyway like you I want Griffin to stay but i want Brough to stay more, whether there is anything between them or not, hopefully they will be both here next season, like PG says we will get to know when the club wants us to know.

No worries Bo, didnt want anyone to think i was having a go at Brough. Griff has been great for us this year but Broughy is a match winner and would be 1st on my team sheet every week.
