Welby’s involvement , desire and speed in a game is what Wests Tigers desperately need.For anyone interested - Jack Welsby tore Leeds to shreds for St. Helens in the SL Grand Final at Old Trafford today. Even the great Jonathon Davies described him as “Outstanding”. And that’s now in three consecutive Grand Final victories where in the first (aged barely 19) he won the game single-handedly in the last two seconds against Wigan and in the second shifted the momentum against a huge Catalans side and sent Saints home champions. Seriously, if you guys are looking for a difference maker - tell your owners to pick up the phone.
I think he's... okay. It doesn't seem like they'd have to spend too much to get him and he is fast, which they sorely lack in the backline.Only 21, has genuine speed and for the most part held his own in a prelim final. If nothing else, he would be a good addition to push Laurie for the fullback spot. Still plenty to learn, but has some great attributes to make him become a regular 1st grader.
Without many available players off contract in 2023, I really do hope the reported swap happens.
the sad fact for me is I think I'd pick Staines over him and he is far behind Edwards imo. Admittedly, I rate Edwards highly.
I don't think I've seen many posts "frothing over" the possibility of Staines coming.Surely we aren’t frothing over Staines
Kid was only keeping that thug May’s seat warm
Hasn’t arrived at Tigers HQ yet but it’s a big fat punt from me
All good mateI don't think I've seen many posts "frothing over" the possibility of Staines coming.
Okay, that sounds really wrong... But you know what I mean!
I just said he was "okay", would be cheap and could possibly add depth and maybe competition for Laurie.
Very much agree.Edwards is a gun. Latrell, Tedesco, Ponga and Tommy Turbo have better games when they are at their best.
Edwards is just so consistent though and he isn't far off those guys.
Tedesco is the best player in the game because he is consistently really really good.
I think Edwards is underated due the sheer number of gun players who play fullback.
Yeh agree.All good mate
Don’t even know if he’d crack our backline … think we need to aim higher that’s all. Need centres desperately
This is the first season Madge had ‘cap’ to play with after Cleary. He got API and IP, not a bad start. Now even more cap available to do more, but his been puntedWe need to get as far away as possible from the Madge recruitment Style of having a while squad of average joes. We need stars and talented but inexperienced backups. The Roosters model. Throw in one or two solid pros across the forwards and backs with the young guns as they learn.
Next season we have two star players, both new signings. We need some existing players to step up, those that don't will be straight out the door and replaced by a teenager
