“Leeds Rhinos are a great club with a massive amount of history,” he said.
“It is an honour and privilege to be part of this team. I don’t know the boys and that makes it particularly exciting to get to know a complete set of blokes over the next few weeks.
“It is good to be over here now and my focus is on settling in and trying to earn a spot in the side for Boxing Day. I am really looking forward to pulling on a Leeds Rhinos jersey and getting out there in front of the home fans.
“I am a big fan of Super League and I have always watched a lot of it on television back home. When I found out I was coming over here, I was getting up early to watch all the Rhinos games in the run in to the end of the season.”
As a hooker, Fallon is particularly looking forward to playing behind Leeds’ big, skilful pack.
“We have got a great forward pack here at the Rhinos and they play a great brand of footie,” he said.
“The forwards like to offload the ball and they can all pass so it is going to be exciting playing behind a pack with that level of skill.
“Teams tend to play a lot more footie over here, they are not afraid to throw the pass, the NRL is more structured with a lot of pre-emptive plays.
“I know Leeds like to offload and get the ball wide and that is exciting for me. I love the way Leeds play, as a hooker if you’re not enjoying that type of play along with quick play the balls then you’re probably in the wrong game.”
