Is This What It Has Come To?
Posted by southstander on August 10 2005 - 11:22:30

The Wolves get Johns, Saints get Meli, Wigan get Logan...and we get Shane Millard!

The Rhinos have today announced the signature of Shane Millard, from almost relegated Widnes Vikings, to take over the Andrew Dunemann role for next season.

Utility forward Millard will make his debut in the festive challenge, before trying to establish himself in the first team.

After nine departures and only one signature so far this season, Hetherington has gone and underwhelmed us all by making utility forward Shane Millard his second signing of the summer. We came close to signing him last close season, but Dunemann stepped up to the plate ably to cover for the injured Diskin.

As everyone knows, Dunners is off at the end of the season for personal reasons, and he goes with everyones thanks, but is Millard really the answer to a side already looking very threadbare for next year?

Millard, with thirty years on the clock, joins on a one year contract. He has played for St.George, London Broncos, Souths, Wests, Sydney Roosters and of course the Vikings.He's managed sixteen games a season for the last two years, scoring eight tries this year, but is now on the sidelines with a knee injury which will keep him out for the rest of the year. Top tackler in Superleague VIII, he does have some pedigree, but you have to wonder if his body has taken too much punishment to make him a viable prospect.

On-quota, he takes up one of the Rhinos three overseas places, the others being Ali Lauiti'iti and Scott Donald. That looks like the end of Mr Hetheringtons antipodean shopping!

Accoring to the press release, Tony Smith appears to like him, but I have my doubts. An on-quota, crocked, thirty-year-old, cover player is hardly what I'd hoped to see Hetherington securing for next seasons hunt for Superleague.

Only time will tell, and I remember feeling like this when we signed Willie Poching a few years ago - only to be proved wrong, but Millard will have to do a lot to get me onside.

Not a great day as far as I'm concerned, but it could have been worse, it could have been that thug Leon Pryce.
