Tom Lillycrop and NRL

40 posts in this topic

Can anyone comment on the news that Dewsbury's Tom Lillycrop is one of a number of players that NRL clubs are chasing. Maybe the news is wrong as the article also says that Dewsbury is a Super League club!!

My query is would he be good enough for NRL (the Burgess brothers are). Is he worth a punt?

The others named are Dom Crosby (Wigan) and Colton Roche (Sheffield) and Sam Tomkins (Wigan). The last is an obvious target as 2012 man of Steel.

Except Tomkins is suspect under the high ball and his defence is weak, don't know where he would play in the NRL. Lillycrop is a very good player but not NRL standard at the moment.

where have you read this article, it would be worth having a look but I doubt Tom would be considered good enough at the moment for NRL.

The report is in the Sunday Star Times, a Sunday paper in NZ.

I believe a similar story was in The Sun on Friday.

Piggy's Mate like I've said before Lillycrop wants to get back into super league. So why the **** would he want to play with a wannabe super duper league club like fev. Go back to mount taliban n watch the puppies get battered by the Giants you plank

If you'd have seen the game you'd have seen the dogs take the Giants to the brink of defeat again, we were awesome. You really do post rubbish pal

i don't know anything about this particular case but Aussie coaching connections have been quoted as saying that they may well take a punt with a number of English players. Given the massive level of sponsorship presently in their game combined with a very favourable exchange rate it was said that they could offer a young player a £25K p.a. plus accomodation contract which would be very attractive to many of them, but relative peanuts to the clubs. Although most would not make the grade one or two might, which would be a major result for the individual clubs involved. Those players who didn't make the cut would still have had one or two years living in an attractive environement and learning in the best RL culture in the world.
