Luke Gale gives honest revelation about his future

Every time Luke Gale’s name appears on social media, there is someone linking him with a move away from Leeds.

Let’s not forget, he only joined the Rhinos ahead of the 2020 season from Castleford, where he enjoyed a stellar year, guiding the club to a Challenge Cup success.

However, 2021 has ‘been a bit of a disaster’ by Gale’s own admission, but he is not giving up on playing again.

“This year has been a bit of a disaster on a personal level, from day one of pre-season when I injured my pec’,” Gale told the Yorkshire Evening Post in his weekly column.

“The challenge I got hurt in last week was innocuous.

“Leigh mis-kicked a kick-off, my foot got stuck in the floor and I took a whack to the knee and hyper-extended it.

“It’s devastating, but the only good news is it is an MCL – that’s medial collateral ligament – rather than ACL, which is your anterior cruciate ligament and means nine months off the field.

“It is a very similar injury to the one Alex Mellor got a few weeks ago.

“It’s a grade three, which is six weeks out.

“I am laid up at the moment with an ice pack on my knee, but I have not given up hope of playing again this year.”

Gale’s future has been up in the air since rumours of a move away reared their head once he lost the captaincy last month, but the veteran halfback has no idea where that speculation has come from.

“I keep hearing I am going to be signing for Wakefield for 2022, which is news to me.

“I am not sure where these rumours come from, but they are not true – I have not spoken to any rival club.

“I am still contracted to Leeds and that’s where I’ll be next season.”
