Alex Walmsley

Post by hugh1954 » Sun 26 Nov, 2017 5:48 pm

Glad to see that the Tigers are interested in securing a chance to have Alex Warmsley with us next year, looked very impressive in the game against Tonga. Runs without any fear, appears strong in Defence and is a big lump of a lad. I have always liked a Pommy in the Tigers team, in the past it has been backs that have dominated , Schofield, Hanley But for the right price could be a great signing. Looking forward to see how he goes against the Kangaroos.

At the risk of sounding like a complete wanker, his name is Alex Walmsley. I've watched a few games and he's been a beast. Hope he comes to us or Newcastle. Screw the rest.

Newcastle, Parramatta, Wests Tigers and St George Illawarra reportedly lead the race to sign Walmsley.

Either he wants to come to the NRL or he doesn't. If it was a ploy to get more $ in the UK then good luck and piss off.

If he wants to come to the NRL then we could have a crack, but where would we play him? We already have Packer, Matulino and Twal, with Grant on pretty decent coin as a backup, and Sue. We could give them Grant in exchange maybe?

That sounds like a plan.

He is contracted to St. Helens for 2018 and most super league contracts seem to have pretty hefty transfer fees included on top of salary. If he extremely, extremely surprised if we or any NRL club signed him for 2018. 2019 maybe.

Eels, Sharks and Knights are the interested clubs apparently.

I’m no mole and don’t have much intel but I’ve heard from a mate close to the Rorters that Napa is off and Walmsley has already been signed. Just to brighten our evening! Hate the Rorters!

Napa to Knights

You mean Knights buying the Roosters bench / Wyong Roos side?

I am not that impressed with Napa his rep is mainly based on one tackle against souffs.I would happily take Takiaho(spelling)but i doubt if roosters will let him go
