O/T (part) - Leeds Rhinos

We (Carnegie) are in a period of calm, as acknowledged by Almo in another post, but not too far from home there is much ado in the other part of Emerald Headingley that is League territory.

There has been the recent departure of an accepted coach of some stature, as far as the Rhinos are concerned, followed by the appointment of a new coaching team. One feature of the new regime, putting aside the temporary nature of Jimmy Lowe's appointment, is the divesting of some of Gary Hetherington's previous role within the organisation. Kevin Sinfield will apparently take on these divested areas in an attempt to try and create a new era of success for the Rhino's. To dampen any enthusiasm created by the arrival of the new team there are rumours emanating from various sources which should create some concern for those interested in the playing fortunes of the team as we enter this new dawn. They relate to some of the established players and their potential for leaving the club at the end of this season when out of contract.

Next season will see the availability of a superb, brand new stadium which will be the envy of Super League, but will we have a team set up to match it?

With regard to your last point, BL, it would not be good for two second-tier rugby teams to play at such a marvellous stadium.
Has the cost of the stadium drained some of the Rhinos salary budget, I wonder?

They haven's started paying for it yet!

Just announced a kiwi half-back for next season so I don't think they are in the same cloth-cutting boat as us just yet.

Sadly Rhinos are now confirmed as members of the "middle 8", where they must fight it out with 4 Championship teams to avoid relegation.

Rhinos will get four home and three away matches in Middle Eights as they did the season before last when they had a late surge to achieve ninth place.

Not his time: Toronto match will be at Headingley. Possibility of a match in Canada next year in Super League if results go right way.

This seasons middle 8's give Rhinos home advantage over Hull KR, Salford and Toronto plus third finisher in Championship (currently London Broncos) and travel to Widnes and second and fourth in Championship (currently Toulouse and Halifax) This will change though as there is one more round left to play and one point separates clubs 2 to 6.

Visited Toulouse several years ago on a business trip.
This was an occasion when we were called a 'rosbif's' by a group of locals, who got a mouthful in return from a French colleague who was with our group!

I vaguely remember our soujurn to Toulouse with the Tykes and being in the Frog & Roast Beef when the French National Front came in to try and stir up trouble. Once they saw the size of the opposition they faded into the night.

You hope that Rhino's will stay up but if they didn't I really think that would have massive knock on effects can Leeds Rugby Ltd support 2 2nd tier clubs and I know which one will have the upper hand.

Their support is solid, they have had periods of under-performance before.

Now out of the challenge cup so they concentrate on what needs to be done to stay up.

Totally agree WW.

But why not celebrate (and certainly not overlook) the female Rhinos victory:

The two clubs are totally separate now and Leeds Rugby Ltd/Caddick only owns the Rhinos. Whether Caddick will be willing to put his hand in his pocket to fund them or just rebuild the squad remains to be seen as he's not had to do so before now.

Thank you for clearing this up, the good doctor.

Certainly Mr Caddick is his own man, and sponsors Rhinos in his own way (i.e. they make a profit). Whether he is going to dip into his (deep) pockets to give the Rhinos a tonic remains to be seen. However his development company seem to be pretty active nowadays, so maybe he is in a benevolent mood?

I always like it when the good doctor posts on here. He is so knowledgeable that anyone would think he works for the club!
