The 20-year-old has only missed four games so far this season but suffered a ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligament in his knee in last Sunday’s win over Hull FC that took the Rhinos back top of the First Utility Super League.

It is desperately disappointing news for Liam especially given the form he has been in this season. He will get the best possible treatment from our medical team and I am sure he will return next season stronger for the experience.

The former Melbourne Storm front rower will arrive in Leeds this Saturday and begin training with his new team mates on Monday ahead of the Rhinos top of the table clash with St Helens next Friday, 3rd July at Headingley Carnegie.

I was very excited when the opportunity came up to sign with such a great club as Leeds. The Rhinos are such a successful side with a mix of youth and experience and this is a great opportunity to kick on with my own career as part of that group. I have watched the team on television over here and the side are always competitive and, more often than not, come away with the win which is an exciting thing I want to be part of.

– Mitch Garbutt

We are delighted to welcome Mitch to the club. I have spoken to a number of people in Australia who rate him and the job he can do for a team. He is someone I have been looking at for some time and I think his style of play will fit well within our team and the Super League competition.
