Super League Player Club Bust Ups

With Liam Watts leaving Hull FC after Lee Radford touched a nerve with his criticism of Watts' actions, we decided to pick out 5 of the worst player club bust ups in recent Super League history.

Zak Hardaker - Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos and Hardaker have shared a very rocky relationship in the time they were together, off field issues coupled with substance abuse led to a toxic partnership. The final straw came in the 2016 season when Hardaker refused to play for the Rhinos again, he was loaned to Penrith for half a season and would return before then joining the Castleford Tigers for the 2017 season, this would be his last season after being released for being caught with an illegal substance in his system.

Scott Moore - Widnes Vikings

Moore at one point was deemed to be one of the most promising youngsters to come out of English Rugby League, making his debut at just the age of 16, he signed with Widnes on a 3 year deal, just 2 months into his contract he was released for a breach of the club rules, Moore would spend the rest of his career playing second fiddle, then later arrested for causing thousands of pounds of damage, assaulting police officers, evading arrest, dangerous driving and driving under the influence, Moore was subsequently released by the Bradford Bulls and faces 23 months in prison.

Brett Ferres - Huddersfield Giants

Brett Ferres went from enjoying life with the England team to picking up the pieces of his personal life and career, Ferres was caught by his wife with a team mates wife, that team mate turned out to be Craig Huby. Ferres was initially suspended by the Giants who knew they had to cut one of the players, after a few weeks of speculation over the England Internationals' future, Ferres signed with the Rhinos.

Justin Carney - Castleford Tigers

Justin Carney also managed to get himself involved with a team mates wife, this then erupted into all out warfare on the training ground after the undisclosed team mate confronted him. Castleford initially stood down Carney but the damage was done, players demanded the former NRL winger be removed from the club. Salford would offer Carney a lifeline and would keep him on a strict monitoring plan.

James Segeyaro - Leeds Rhinos

James Segeyaro was a bright light in a very dark season for the Rhinos, the aforementioned fallout with Man Of Steel Zak Hardaker, missing out on the 8 and losing key players. Segeyaro came in and gave the Rhinos hope for the 2017 season, at least that's what was thought when his two year contract was signed. This would turn into a ridiculous transfer saga between club and player after Cronulla wanted to offer Segeyaro a contract, Leeds slapped a £450,000 on the hookers head and after nearly 4 months and talks of lawyers being involved, Cronulla met Leeds' price and Segeyaro returned to Australia.
