Leeds Rhinos and Hull FC fans make their feelings known on Brad Dwyer’s Super League transfer

Brad Dwyer’s move to Hull FC from Leeds Rhinos was confirmed last night – much to the chagrin of the West Yorkshire club’s fan base.

And, is it any wonder? The number nine has been in sparkling form for Leeds in 2022 in what had been a very difficult start before Rohan Smith took over.

Richard Agar stepping down didn’t seem to affect Dwyer’s form and he kept ploughing away, arguably being the Rhinos’ most in-form player throughout the year regardless of the coach.

His sniping runs around the ruck and his lightning pace have caused endless amount of trouble for his Super League opponents – including Hull FC – so it seems bizarre that Leeds are letting him go.

However, Rohan Smith’s problem at Headingley is the fact that he has little to no room to work with regarding bringing in his own players if some of those already there do not leave instead.

Hence the departures of the likes of Jack Broadbent, Alex Mellor, Liam Sutcliffe, Bodene Thompson and Tom Briscoe either midway through the season or at the end of it.

Leeds fans, however, believe that the club should have kept Dwyer and they made their feelings known on social media.

One supporter tweeted: “Going to miss you in the blue and amber, all the best Brad.”

Another exclaimed: “Nothing at all to prove to them Brad you have been outstanding since moving to Leeds gunna be a big loss but wish you well for the future!! Hopefully a few big nights left in a rhinos shirt.”

Another echoed those sentiments: “Absolutely gutted. You’ve been a warrior during your time at Leeds, what a player. You will be missed!”

One person tweeted: “Been great at the Rhinos in some difficult times. Big end of season coming up!!”

It was a constant stream of positivity: “Thank you for everything you’ve done for us Brad. Once a Rhino always a Rhino. Now then….a. Big Finish please.”

The nice words kept on coming: “No idea why we have let you go? best hooker we’ve had in years.”

…And coming: “Gutted to see you go, Bradley, honestly you’ve been first class for us since you arrived. Good luck over there mate.”

Those thoughts were echoed by another fan: “All the very best Brad sorry to see you leave great player.”

More followed: “Absolutely gutted to see that you are leaving the rhinos. Always consistent and a constant lift when needed. Great signing for Hull.”

One person was particularly evocative: “Well that’s one hell of a punch to the gut. One of my favourite players over recent years. Always have everything, changed games and embodied the fighting spirit we needed in tough times.”

It’s safe to say that Leeds fans have been riddled with sadness with the news that Dwyer is leaving, but Hull fans certainly see it as their gain.
