Matty Ashurst has signed for Wakefield for next year on a two year deal. He's been going OK just lately for Salford so it's a shame to see him go. Salford website mentions it's a salary cap issue for the reason he's not being retained which is fair enough.
All the best to him in his future endeavours and hopefully he can stay injury free
Just been checking on how PNG Hunters are getting on in the Queensland comp (W9 D1 L7) and noticed that Tyrone McCarthy bagged a try against them last week. Anyone know how he's getting on down under? His team are the top of the ladder so presume it's been a good move for him.
Did he jump or he was he nudged out at Warrington? Always thought he was a decent enough prospect and a like-able character. Also, he was well ahead of the curve when it came to the caveman beard plenty of players are now rocking.
For fans of ex-Wire youngsters in far flung places, Rhys Williams also scored for Central Queensland Capras in the same round.
Highlights from the PNG-Northern Pride game are in the link below. McCarthy scores right off the bat but highlights are probably worth watching for the 4 try effort in a losing team from the PNG winger, Garry Lo. That lad can shift.
