If this info is accurate then it is a good pick-up as this kid can play!
But isn’t he a fullback? What about McKinnon and Mullaney…
Maybe McKinnon is only until end of season 2010.
That’s exactly the case with McKinnon at this stage. Whether he stays beyond this season depends on his form.

A note from a sharkie fan:
There was a story in the Mole section of this week’s latest Rugby League Week that Ben Orcher, who many regard as the new David Peachey has been punted from the club due to a poor attitude at training.
Does anyone know if this is true?
If this the case then the coaching staff need to be shown the door(should’ve been punted last season) as Orcher is a promising player and I would hate to see him become a superstar at another club.
Found this on the Sharkies website.
Where is he his not in the toyota cup or n.s.w i thought he was a really big star for the sharks

Mind you the post is from 2nd May and has not been updated to any great extent since.
Dont recall seeing much of him?
If we are gona try and grab a 20’s player from another club, I wouldnt mind spending a few bucks on Beau Henry? Outside of him, I really like the young boys we have and look forward to seeing a few of them develop into genuine NRL players…
Very Good Goal Kicker

Thats pretty much all it says about Henry, but it also says, “Newcastle continue to monitor developments in Melbourne and will be particulary interested if young forwards Sika Manu, Adam Blair and Kevin Proctor become free agents.”
They know who he is, and they are not going to admit that he is much of a loss now that he is gone.
I watched him against us in a U20’s game a couple of years ago and he was very much a David Peachy style of fullback. He looked like he was going to score against us every time he ran the footy.
I hope he is not another Dane Laurie in terms of training……but if we got him then he has the potential to be a very good signing. He is fast and that is something we have lacked in the past. Can he tackle though…
