Always next year 🐯
Excellent news! could someone possibly post the article please?
A rising star rated the best prospect at Wests Tigers since James Tedesco has re-signed at Concord for another two seasons.
Tommy Talau, 19, the son for former Bulldogs and New Zealand centre Willie Talau, is expected to start next season in the centres.
Talau made his NRL debut against Manly in round 22 this year. He has played just one first grade match.
Just last month, Wests Tigers champion Benji Marshall said: “Tommy Talau has the most potential of any young kid I have seen since James Tedesco.
“Yeah, (it is a big call) but the potential is there and of course he has to fulfil it. But with the right work ethic, I think he’ll have a lot to offer this club.”
Talau was to come off contract after next season but is now locked away until the end of 2022.
He is favourite to take the centre position vacated by North Queensland-bound Esan Marsters.
Talau — a former Australian Schoolboy — could play in the centres with Moses Mbye, leaving Corey Thompson and Paul Momirovski to fight for a wing spot.
David Nofoaluma is expected to be the other winger with Latrell Mitchell — assuming Wests Tigers can finalise the deal — to start from fullback. Robert Jennings will also be pushing for an NRL position.
Wests Tigers are expected to make Talau’s retention official later today.
Talau played in last year’s SG Ball grand final for Canterbury, and was top tryscorer, before being lured away by Wests Tigers.
Willie Talau played 101 matches for the Bulldogs.
And Madge Scores. Funny thing is the media won’t find out a thing for a week or 2.! Not allowed to say whether it’s L.M or the WTF forum signing *you didn’t hear it from me
Madge scores,. The tigers are up 4-0 with a ktc
‘Trell to kick it over/us into gear/genuine premiership contenders in 2020…
The only Saints player for me would be Widdop , but I think his body is beginning to give out on him
As far as Field ,Lomax and the other young bloke they are just potential and their defence doesn’t inspire me one bit
Widdop is going to ESL from next year…didn’t you get the memo…
I did , but surely a few words from Matterson will be the game changer
He has the force , you know
Why not get the GOAT Jeremy Latimore
But was told today that Josh Reynolds is no longer a Tiger anyone have any news on that if true or not?
Hope thats the case
Zac Cini, Jake Simpkin, Kane Bradley & Jock Madden will join the club’s top 30 in 2021. Reece Hoffman will join the top 30 in 2022.
