Away from the rigid structures of the NRL, Cuthbertson is enjoying getting his hands on the ball more often.
“I can test my hand a little bit more in this team. In the NRL everything is a bit more manufactured and I had a bit of a different role,” the 30-year-old told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“I can’t say I didn’t enjoy playing in the NRL, but I know my ability and I had to tame it a bit.
“That’s a hard thing to do in its own right, knowing when and when not to pass the ball or off-load or even when to just run.
“Obviously I have gained from the role I had over there and I am trying to mix it up a bit here.
“I am really enjoying it. It has been great since I have been here.
“If you ask my family and everyone I’ve grown up with, they’d always say I’ve tried to do that.
“I’ve copped a bit of flak over the years for having a bit more of a game in me, but unfortunately I grew up a bit tall, so I found myself in the loose-forward and front-row role.
“Brian McDermott has worked really hard with me, working on my confidence and just playing what I see and the main thing, just enjoying my footy.
