Scrutes to Scarper
Posted by southstander on August 06 2008 - 09:13:33


According to this mornings oracle of all wisdom, the Bradford Telegraph & Argos, Nick Scruton's move to near neighbours Bradford Bulls is a done deal. Although it is strange how this 'fact' emerges just two days before the two sides meet at Headingley.

The exit of the hard working, but injury unlucky, Rhinos prop has long been rumoured and this report seems to confirm it.

Rhinos number seventeen Nick Scruton made his Leeds debut as an interchange against Wigan in September 2002. So far he has made 74 appearances for the Rhinos, mostly from the bench, and scored on five occasions.

In a career dogged by serious injury he broke his leg in the 2002 Academy final missing the 2003 season and making just one Leeds appearance in 2004 (although he did play eighteen times for Hull FC on loan that season).

Nick fought his way back into the Leeds side in 2005 and had more success in 2006 figuring in twenty-one games. But disaster struck again in 2007 when he missed the majority of the season after suffering a broken bone in his hand in the game against Salford.

Much loved in the dressing room and by fans he wrote the club song in 2004 which is still sung by the players in the changing room after wins.

It seems that Nick has become a victim of the salary cap at Leeds with an 'improved' offer not being improved enough to keep him at Headingley. What this means, if true, is that Luke Burgess will probably have his 'improved' offer 'improved' even more to keep him at Leeds for the foreseeable future.

If it is true then Nick will be sadly missed by both colleagues and fans as he enters the club which has recently become a graveyard for ex-Leeds players.
