“A player seemingly gutted to leave the club almost seems as though he wanted to go asap” – How social media reacted to Konrad Hurrell’s move to St Helens

We’ve known for some time that Konrad Hurrell’s three year stint at Headingley was coming to an end. But it remained unconfirmed where the next chapter of his career would unfold until yesterday when St Helens revealed that they’d signed the Tongan centre on a one-year deal. The subsequent reaction was mixed as social media was divided over the news.

One Leeds fan felt somewhat bemused by his eagerness to join St Helens. They were of the opinion that he was heartbroken to leave so they felt it was strange how happy he was to join one of Leeds’ rivals. Another meanwhile suggested he simply stood in the way of the future at Leeds.

Others speculated about why Hurrell only received a one year deal at St Helens. One fan believed he would be joining the NRL’s newest team in 2023.

Of course, his departure prompted some to look back on his time in a Leeds shirt, One suggested they’d been disappointed by his time as a Rhino.

Plenty of Leeds fans simply wanted to understand why he took up a one-year deal at St Helens rather than Leeds. Meanwhile, another came to defend Hurrell’s struggles in 2021 echoing what Kristian Woolf himself said.

A photoshopped image of Hurrell in a Saints shirt made the rounds and led to a few jabs at the Tongan centre.

Nonetheless, plenty of Leeds fans were emotional to see him leave.

Meanwhile, Saints fans were unsure by the move until they heard what he had to say.

One Saints fan believed it was the perfect chance for him to rekindle his form and force his way back into the Dream Team.

Others felt that the focus should be on Leeds for letting him go rather than Saints for trying to get him back to his best.

That said, one supporter pointed out how many St Helens fans would have to delete their previous comments about the Tongan following his announcement.
