Blake Ayshford?

Post by prattenparkchild » Sun 08 Apr, 2018 11:41 am

On one of these threads someone mentioned Blake Ayshford's name as a possible fill in for the loss of Taane Milne.

He is a former WT player, certainly no world beater, but solid enough as a centre. He turns 30 this year, so has a couple of good years in him. I believe he is signed with Warriors till end of 2019 but like everything in league if a better offer comes along................. We have player slots left, I'm happy promoting youth but Im not against picking up a mature player as well for some depth of experience.

Thoughts?

What happened to Ayshford? Was looking like a very promising player for us at one stage.. Completely went off the rails performance wise, a shadow of his former self.

In all the years at WT ..................he never made a single line break...................he is slower than most forwards.

We have money buy James Roberts or Mitchell from Easts

Mitchell just re-signed for 4 years. Roberts is wrapped up too I think.

Not that much better than Naiqama.

A pretty solid defender, but offers absolutely zilch in attack. He had one decent semi against the Roosters and some people thought he was next level. He was and always is a has been a very average player.

We have enough backs of that same "solid" standard. If we buy someone, they have to be a serious attacking threat.

Just because I don't like s*** statements

Blake Ayshford at Wests Tigers - 104 games, 47 line breaks and 218 tackle busts

I dont nessecrily think we must sign him but our NSW cup centres yesterday had never played a single game of NRL while Ayshofrd has played 167 FG games including playing full seasons in NRL for the last 2 years so I would be more then happy for him as a replacement for Milne or Suli
