Beau Champion



  • RLW reporting he’s set to sign a one year deal with Parra…http://rugbyleagueweek.com.au/eels-sign-beau-champion/

    Solid player, in a position we’re crying out for players in and yet it would appear (though I could be wrong) we haven’t even expressed interest in him?..

    Not sure about the quality of centres in the reggies/20’s but surely nothing could be lost through a short term deal at a bargain price…Even if it did go tits up…Not like he’s been forced out purely through form though, just seemed to me like there was no space for him with the two boom young centres Souffs have…



  • Champion would do nothing for us unfortunately. You’re right about us needing players in his position (and he’d be better than Lulia) but we already have Lulia in that roster spot and Champion is injured more than he’s on the field and that is the last type of player we need.



  • People on this forum are suggesting new players who are either worse than most of the players we have or cannot afford with our pauper’s purse.



  • He must be way out of form to not be in 1st grade thought he used to be a very good 1st grader maybe against us 😆

    1. He’s better than Lawrence who’s a walk up start in the centres every week

    2. Given he’s played limited FG over the past 18 months he’d be coming at a bargain price, so our finances or lack thereof are irrelevant.

    So yeh….



  • At this stage I think I’d settle for anyone of NRL standard who will be on the field most of the year. I’m not convinced Beau Champion fits the bill…



  • I’m glad some of the formers don’t buy our players .champion is no better than Lawrence ,and I’d punt Lawrence in a heartbeat



  • I prefer Ryan Morgan.



  • Cheese Blair also getting lots of reggies time at Manly, could be another option

  • We will at least have Fulton’s money to buy a half decent centre

    The issue is who wants to try and reboot their careers at the Wests Tigers ??

    And looking at the huge list of NRL players we have signed in the past two years Id say no one that anyone at any other clubs wants



  • Didn’t the NRL say something about having to include Fulton’s contract in our cap as we were paying him out his contract?

    Depends on the terms i suppose , if they came to a mutual pay out agreement then does that all go into our Cap this year ? that would leave us extra $$$ for next year , but i reckon the Tigers will be paying him some sort of a Coaching staff wages so doesn’t effect our Cap , Fulton is a Club man and maybe a job in the Football Club is in his best interest long term , Who knows

    No It was brought up in another thread , as Fulton has a non playing role within the club the salary cap will not be affected

    Same as Dwyer wasn’t



  • It appears there are no decent centres in the NRL that are off contract next year. Any one follow the UK super league? Any one we should be looking at?



  • Beau Champion is better than Lawrence and Lulia,and would be cheap,why the hell not.
