Furner booked and ready for take off with Rhinos

Dave Furner makes his farewell speech back in 2004.

Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Dave Furner has dismissed speculation in Australia about his future and sent a clear message to Rhinos fans that he can not wait to get started at Emerald Headingley.

Furner is set to arrive in England in less than ten days to begin his initial three year contract with the club but has been busy in Australia speaking to potential new signings for the club. He has been in daily contact with Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield and says he is excited about getting over to Leeds.

He commented, “Since the appointment I have been looking forward to starting my relationship again with Leeds Rhinos, the staff and the fans. I don’t want to give fuel to any speculation and I just want to say I am booked, I am coming to Leeds on 5th November and I can’t wait to get started.

“I am looking forward to getting over to Leeds and meeting the current squad so I can start to build my relationship with those players. I am excited about Konrad and Tui coming over. Having spoken to both players they are very excited about playing at Emerald Headingley for Leeds. It has been very busy for the last four weeks, meeting with players and their managers as well as getting ready to move to England,” added Furner.
