Well, there's that, and his positional sense in defence...

The Warriors, in my view, got themselves a better version of Hurrell in Kata, who has his strengths and less of his failings. I will back Wigan's English centres against him next season. We shall see.

Leeds sack coach David Furner after 14 games!

Bit of a shock, this one, but Leeds are languishing near the bottom of SL after a really poor start to the season (even worse than Wigan's!)

Leeds (16) 48
Tries: Handley 2, Myler 2, Lui, Briscoe, Martin Goals: Martin 10
Catalans (8) 8
Tries: Goudemand Goals: Gigot 2

Resurgent Leeds Rhinos climbed four points clear of trouble in Super League as they ran in seven tries to hammer top five hopefuls Catalans Dragons.

Leeds led only 16-8 at the break but, despite Brad Singleton's straight red card for a high shot on the influential Sam Kasiano, inspired by Rhyse Martin, Leeds crossed five more times.

Prolific winger Ash Handley and Richie Myler scored two tries each.

Leeds Rhinos captain Trent Merrin will stay at Headingley for the 2020 Super League season.

The 30-year-old Australia forward had left the club to try and secure a move back home for compassionate reasons after one season of a four-year deal.

But Merrin will now rejoin the Rhinos in November in time for the start of pre-season training.
