Webb’s Rhinos career comes to an end

Leeds full-back Brent Webb has played his final game for the club after being ruled out for the rest of the season.

Webb, 31, will miss the end of his stint at the Rhinos due to a knee injury, meaning his appearance against Wakefield at the end of July was his last.

Head Coach Brian McDermott said: “It is unfortunate for Brent that his time at the club finishes with an injury. He leaves the club with everyone’s best wishes and he is held in deep affection by all at the Rhinos.”

The New Zealand international made 155 appearances for the club since arriving in 2007.

Chief Executive Gary Hetherington added: “I am sure in the years to come, Brent will be regarded as one of the finest overseas players, Leeds has ever had and one of the most exciting and talented full backs to feature in Super League

“His record at the Rhinos stands comparison against the very best and we wish him the best of luck for the future. He will always remain welcome at Headingley Carnegie as part of the Rhinos family.”

Webb is yet to reveal where his future lies beyond 2012, with Catalan among the reported favourites for his signature.
