Brisbane are set to confirm the signing of Wests utility Billy Walters, the son of Broncos coach Kevin.
The Tigers are set to announce the deal in the coming days, with 7News Brisbane reporting the father-son duo will come into effect for the 2021 season.
Walters’ arrival will be met with great optimism at Red Hill, with the 26-year-old set to add depth to the Broncos’ playmaking stocks.
Star five-eighth Anthony Milford is facing a race against the clock to make Brisbane’s Round 1 clash after requiring surgery on a fractured hand, with Walters set to assist in Milford’s absence.
Walters has played 10 NRL matches since making his debut with Melbourne in 2019, moving to Concord the following season where he played eight matches.
New coach brings plodding son to strife torn club. That will fix things.
Bit harsh … his son has always put in for us during his short stint with us. Got injured so that was that.
And Walters senior was never uncomplimentary about WT in his commentary role with Fox NRL.
I wish them both best of luck.
