Leeds have signed England prop Darrell Griffin from Huddersfield while Keith Senior might not have played his last game for the club.

Griffin, previously with Wakefield, has agreed a three-year contract, with an undisclosed fee changing hands to cover the remaining year of his Giants deal. He joins another former Wakefield player, Richard Moore, as the new blood in the Rhinos' front-row for next season.

Leeds have also confirmed that Senior, the veteran Great Britain centre, is considering an offer to continue playing for them next year. Senior, who is recovering from a knee reconstruction, had agreed to join Crusaders – now to be the North Wales Crusaders – but was left in limbo by their decision to drop out of Super League.

Leeds' chief executive, Gary Hetherington, said the club had offered him a role off the pitch, plus a "pay as you play" contract as a player.
