I'd take him.
Mate we've had that many whispers about players coming here over the past few months and none (literally none) of them have come true. Won't be holding my breath for Walker either.
Not sold that we will get him but I think he'd add to our squad. These guys throw so many darts that they are bound to hit eventually.

Well Matterson and Momo come to mind.
But there is a good reason no new signings and re-signingings have not taken place. Have you heard that our new coach starts work on Monday?

I know he is great in attack but How's Walker's defence ?
I would say in the top 5 defensive centres in the game...but that's not hard to do these days..
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Oh no! Does that mean he won't be able to throw passes to tall players?

Mate. Don't be ridiculous.

The prototype centres/wingers these days are players such as Izzy Folau, Jharal Yow Yeh, Corey Oats.
Tall, athletic with a good vertical leap.

Our backline is one of if not the... shortest in the comp.

Thompson, Nofo, Mahe... as well as Kev.
These guys cannot compete with the Edrick Lee, Joey Manu and Maumalo's of the game.
Out contested every time.

Give me backline like;

1. RTS
2. Oates
3. Manu
4. Latrell
5. Maumalo

over midgets like Thompson, Mahe & Nofo any day.

Walker will be the best of our back 4 though, even though he's shorter than the tall boys mentioned.

As long as Madge believes he'll be ok from a cultural perspective, he would be a brilliant addition. Not just for the centre spot, but we're going to be left short for a decent backup 6 once Benji leaves. Josh's has some injury concerns and it would be good to have some quality coverage.

Otherwise, the best option we would have is to shift mbye into 6 and push thomo into fb.

Just throwing it out there!!!
Gamble’s a six if I’m not mistaken, hasn’t really been given a real go yet.
Maybe with some game time next year we could see how he plays alongside brooks.

You will find Momirovski is a better 6 than centre. Matterson can also cover if their is an in game injury. Both are superior to Walker at 6. Walker is a strike centre we need badly.

If we can get him the backline with Brooks, Mbye, Walker, Thompson has a few speed demons and some powerhouses Marsters, Nofa.

We are not far off really becoming a finals side with a bit of luck and Madge attracting some quality we will be looking good.

Brisbane Broncos move to link Souths star Damien
Cook with incoming coach Anthony Seibold

Brisbane Broncos are reportedly among four NRL clubs making a play for star Souths and NSW Blues hooker Damien Cook.
The move would link the 27-year-old with current coach Anthony Seibold, under whom Cook’s game has flourished.
Seibold will join the Broncos from 2020 but is contracted to coach Souths in 2019 before he and Wayne Bennett swap clubs the
following season.
Cook’s manager Mario Tartak told The Daily Telegraph four clubs are chasing his client’s signature, including Souths.
There has been a club that has come in late,” Tartak said. “I would be reluctant (to name the club) because we basically agreed
not to say anything.
“We’re down to four clubs and that includes Souths. Two are in Sydney, one out of Sydney. “They are all strong offers.”
According to the Telegraph the club outside Sydney is the Broncos however Souths remain in a strong position to re-sign Cook
for 2020.
Should the move north materialise it would raise questions over the future of incumbent Broncos hooker Andrew McCullough
who is contracted until the end of the 2021 season

I don't think there was any noise about the Matterson signing either.

My only issue with walker is his mental state.

He got axed from souths because of he OD'ed on Oxy, then his trany brother/sister got done for murder not long ago ... if he is bringing a bag full of drama then i'd say pass.

If he is handling things well and has his mind on the job, then he would compliment Marsters in the centres very well.
