Rumours rife about the South Sidney prop coming over next season.

Been linked with Bradford too. Out of the two I think he'll sign for






















Salford.

31. But will be 32 by the start of next season. A bit younger than I originally thought.

Signing will be comfirmed tomorrow and with Morley and Carvel on the way out he is one good replacement, he starts for Souths but with the Burgess clan getting control his cards were marked.

Past it, injuries taken the toll. If you look at his stats in the NRL each week he really is not doing massive minutes and when he is on he does not make the yards like he did. Rather pick up a youngish kid from the championship.

They're doing both aren't they? Anthony England.

Yes, both are coming, plus a certain young hooker from Cas apparently.

We never confirm signings on a Tuesday.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

32 isn't that old and Asotasi is still a very good player. He's not the prop he was in his mid 20s but would still be one of the top forwards over here if he stayed fit.

I too looked up his stats when I heard the rumour at the weekend.

Not very impressive, and nor was his performance against Canberra.

As ever though, I suppose Tony Smith and friends know a tiny bit (!) more than me.

Well he's bound to be washed up and just coming over for a rest....... I ask this question, who was the last player Warrington signed from the NRL who came over for a holiday??

Anyway ...... Warrington have let a 32 and 37 year old go and bring in a 32 year old and reduced the wage bill.

Remember ALL clubs need to work within the salary cap, 135k was the contract of a player who's leaving the wires.


I hope Roy goes well, he's currently playing in the best team in the NRL and I'm pretty sure MM uses him as his starting prop so he can't be that bad, maybe just had a few games hence some negative response on this topic page.

Why, are they 24 hours ahead rather than 12 now? ;-)

Good swaps all round. Souths have half of Bradford in their front row; Wire get a bigger name with experience at the top level; Salford get their leader that they so desperately require and Bradford pick up some real go forward in Carvell (and now Ferguson).

Right - who fancies a hug?

Haven't Wire got any props coming through the juniors?

 

If a good player leaves, it doesn't mean that you have to go and get another one from outside to replace him.

 

 

Ben Evans out on loan with Bradford

Glen Riley - linked to the New Zealand Warriors

Mike Cooper - Off to the NRL
