Reports: Huge Super League exit set to be confirmed

Leeds Rhinos have been preparing for a huge game against Wigan Warriors but have had to deal with more than one thing out of the ordinary.

For started in a truly sad twist of fate they had to release Zane Tetevano after his stroke so that he could go home.

Rohan Smith addressed this saying: “Yeah, we talk about it in sports about you don’t always get to choose how you finish at a club and in his situation with a pretty unusual, uncommon medical issue, it’s disappointing.

“Zane gave his everything for the club in his time here and the key thing was for him to put his health first at this stage of his career and his life. Health is number one.

Asked about the prospect of him playing again, Smith said:

“I’m not exactly sure. The short term was that he wasn’t going to be able to play any time soon. That decision was made to head home and spend some time with his family.

“Whatever the future holds, I haven’t checked with the medical people on that. I hope that he’s got a happy and healthy and long life. That’s number one.”

As Tetevano is allowed to return to Australia, there has been a saga around the future of Nene MacDonald and his future at the club with him staying down under longer than expected.

His future is now in the hands of Gary Hetherington as Rohan Smith said:

“Yeah that’s one that’s in Gary’s hands at the moment. I’m very focused on what’s a huge game for us on Saturday against Wigan and Gary’s sure to update me when there’s some updates.

“I’m not going to speculate about possible scenarios or what may or may not happen. That’s in the hands of Gary and Nene’s management team.

“What we want is, you know, the best outcome for the club and also for Nene and his young family, we think a lot of Nene. But obviously there’s some things to work through there. So we’re, you know, we’re very much focused on the game on the weekend.”

This has led to Jenna Brooks on Sky Sports saying the club are remaining tight kipped over the situation but it seems he is headed for the exit door.
