Brian Carney, Jon Wells and Kevin Brown reveal Leeds Rhinos’ best signing in recent years

Rhyse Martin goes about his business quietly.

But, he is still very much one of Leeds Rhinos’ best and most consistent players with seven tries to his name already in 2022 – including two against Castleford Tigers on Monday afternoon.

In fact, the Papua New Guinea international is Leeds’ top try-scorer for the Rhinos.

By his own admission he wants to stay and should based on form but should the new man in charge want to use his quota spots for new arrivals a doubt may loom over Martin who certainly deserves a new contract.

But, for Sky Sports trio Brian Carney, Jon Wells and Kevin Brown, Martin has been well worth his weight in gold.

‘He is a very talented low maintenance player,” Carney said on Sky Sports.

“He’s a calming influence and everything you need when you are going through a shaky patch,” Wells said.

“Of all the signings in recent years, Rhyse Martin has been one of the best – he is such a key player for them,” Brown said.

For Leeds, however, it was yet another loss against Castleford Tigers as they missed out on a chance to build on their 20-20 draw to Huddersfield Giants last week.
