Looks great in short bursts but obviously needs to still do lots of fitness/stamina work

Well based on what I've seen he is a Saints 1st team player now and we're unlikely to see him in a Batley shirt again. Great to see another player from our club doing well in SL. England call up?

I agree he's a cracking player. He had a really good game for the saints the other night probably their best player on the pitch that night. It's just a shame we lose these good players to the SL clubs. ( I know its inevitable if a SL club comes calling) But it would be great if clubs like ours could keep the great talents that keep popping up now and again. Just out of interest did saints pay a fee for him? I hope they did as talent like his Shouldnt go without a fee IMO. They should be some kind of clause for champ clubs if they bring a talented player through they should get rewarded no matter what by some kind of fee I reckon even if its just a finders fee.

In fairness, wouldn't the vast majority of his development have been with Dewsbury Celtic? Thought he only spent a season at Batley?

To be honest I don't know a batley fan might be able to answer that for you. But I'm sure batley had a major say in his development along the way. if it wasn't for batley he might still be playing for dewsbury Celtic if that's who he did play for before joining the dogs.

He was a good player already when he came to us but I don't think you can doubt the progress he made in his time at Batley. How good he was when he first came to us was more down to raw talent and I think he will have learnt a lot playing for Leeds university and winning a few trophies I'm sure he will continue to get better at St Helens. I just want to see him get as far as he can.

- it was Danny Maun who spotted Alex Walmsley I think.

I think Alex Brown is doing well at Hull KR. Got a hat-trick a few weeks ago so to me that's good in any SL game.

I like to see championship players do well in SL. It shows that our division isn't quite as far behind as people would like to think. Zak Hardaker and Chris Hill are up there now too.

Yep agree with all that. SL will have to look towards the Championship more and more as decent Aussie imports dry up.

Totaly agree with both comments there are some over paid average aussies and newzealanders as well earning ridiculus amounts of money . Also just watched the nrl game souths storm . Makes super league look pedestrian and refs decsions slow and amatarish to be honest .

Some of us would be grateful if we could just keep our players from the clutches of certain championship clubs. :rolleyes:
