Phil has left Yorkshire and signed with Coventry, good luck in the future and thanks for all you've done at Leeds.

Good luck to him. Always gave 100% and nothing less.

He goes with all our best wishes and some of us will see him play next season.

this is a massively exciting time for Cov, they are recruiting well to try and push into the Champ.

So it's not goodbye but au revoir!!

Really sad to hear he's going, a real clubman who gave his all to the club. Shame they're letting him go.

Unbelievable. A great, (and very loyal), servant and player, selected in the Championship Team of the Season (twice this season), never gives less than 100%, and we let him go. Good luck Phil, Coventry's gain, our, (big) loss. Who will be next?



COME ON LEEDS.
We've been through it all together.

Welcome to the mindset of our current coach and DoR. Ridiculous.

Seems to be a moratorium on signing or re-signing players, coming from above coach/DoR level IMHO.

Genuinely top bloke wish him all the best but gutted he's going,

Hope it's a move on Phil's terms as mentioned before top hooker in league (twice) beating the likes of Paice etc and deserves to leave the club on his terms, if it's the club my mind is blown,

Shocking!! Sorry but this guy should have been a one club man. Getting concerned now. In the play off final and nearly all our top players are leaving and we don't really have a DOR...here we go again.

Agree. Is this because his face doesn't fit or maybe he's a relatively high earner and down to cost cutting after the shock loss of the Carnegie money with a mere 10 yrs notice (cough).Looks like were going back to the diccon Edwards days team full of team full of kids (which I enjoyed because I thought we were finally heading in the right direction) . All we need now is green / white /black hoops , change our name to leeds , leave headingley ,build our own stadium , find a multi millionaire willing to lose tens of millions , employ a competent full time ceo with a coherent growth strategy who hires a competent experienced coaching team. Easy.

rant over.

o/t does anyone know a good indian restraint close to headingley?

Maybe, just maybe, the club is taking a longer term approach to building a Premiership side, as did Exeter several years ago. No-one can deny that Plug is up there with the greats, but perhaps his age counts against him in the grand scheme of things.

Great opportunity for him in a rugby union city, Coventry ambitious and on the up and his experience will be ideal, and Wasps nearby. Good luck to him and no doubt he will give his all against Irish.

Assuming you mean restaurant, the Corner Cafe on Burley Road or the Sheesh Mahal on Kirkstall Road are good and not too far away. I would steer clear of Tariq's.

Blimey, you're closer than I am! Give us a nudge and I'll buy you a pint. The more the merrier (we need to pay for all these new 'superstars' somehow (Sm1)).
