Superman Flies Away
Posted by southstander on September 05 2012 - 08:04:35

Catalans Bound
After six years of service, the Rhinos finally waved goodbye to 'Superman' as he donned his cape and flew off into the sunset (south of France).

The ultimate Jekyll and Hyde character, Brents skill and ingenuity often made him the darling of the South Stand deserving the chants of 'Brent Webb is Superman'. But equally often he was lambasted by the same supporters, frustrated by the 'brainfarts' which cost the side needless penalties and tries, and occasionally saw him banished to the sin-bin for backchat.

But there is no doubting, he was a character in Blue & Amber.

Webb played made his full debut for the Rhinos against Salford Reds on the 11th February 2005, having had a try scoring run-out Keith Seniors Testimonial Match a fortnight earlier. His fearless tackling, skill with the ball and the pass, and ability to find a gap where none apparently existed, all quickly endeared him to the Leeds fans.

In that first season, 2007, he made twenty-six Leeds appearances and scored ninety-two points, helping Leeds to their Grand Final win over St Helens at Old Trafford. That was the first of three consecutive Grand Final winners rings for Webb, and the first of four in total for the full-back who would be one of the first names on the teamsheet for the next five years.

In total, Webb made 155 appearances, scoring 86 tries and kicking five goals, averaging over two points a game. But there has always been a dark side to Webb who has been cited by the RFL disciplinary on twenty-five occasions during the last five years.

Overall the memories will, for most Leeds supporters, be good ones. Webb endeared himself to Leeds fans with his fearless approach to the game, the sensational long pass to put wingers in for tries, and his own ability to find the line.

Good luck at Catalans Brent, and have please have your bad games when we play them!
