While it is flattering for Gareth to be associated with an NRL team and his style of play may be suited to the Australian competition, Gareth currently has no plans to head down under. He is firmly concentrating on representing the Rhino's at this Saturday's engage Super League Grand Final and also Great Britain in the forthcoming Gillete Fusion Test series against New Zealand. The Gareth Ellis official website, along with the Leeds Rhinos, are happy to assure fans that this report is based on rumour and hear say with no real substance. Ellis' agent, David Howes, confirmed that Gareth had a further twelve months to run on his contract and preliminary talks with the Rhino's on extending that deal could happen as soon as the autumn internationals have concluded.
