I remember seeing youtube action of Ryan Verlinden.

I will reserve judgement until I've seen them in action.

Broncos had similar a couple of years ago. Signed Hunters captain, PNG rep player Israel Eliab. Looked amazing on YouTube in Q Cup. Ended up being delayed coming over for visa reasons, judging by his girth had eaten too many pies, ended up playing for Skolars all year. Hope the Boas boys proved better.

Punchard is the best passer of a ball I have seen at Fax in many a year. As I have just posted on the Fax forum maybe he is one of the first signings for a 2nd team if you can get it off the ground as I don't see him anywhere near good enough to be a regular starter at a top half championship team.

Given we’ve already got Ridyard and the Boas brothers, it’s hard to see Punchard breaking into the first team.

Took longer than I expected for oxy to tell us how poor Punchard was.....

Say it as I see it. He has his qualities hence me saying how good his passing is, its on the money, he has also only really played a couple of friendlies for us in about 3 years despite us having problems at half back and also failed to stand out at reserve team level. What do you want me to say? You have signed a player who will rip the championship to shreds?

Mate of mine.... fax fan.... some of you know him.....

He will tell it exactly how it is. If he's good, he'll call it that way. If he's not.... well then he waint.

I don't see Punchard anywhere near a starter..... yet. But I'm not a coach.

On the other side of the coin, it takes time for half backs to develop, and given his experience in Australian he may well have improved. Let’s see how he goes on the field, and then we can properly judge him.

Which probably means he'll rip it up in the championship next year.

You've said he's an excellent passer, which probably puts him in the playmaker/game manager category. In my experience these type of players develop later than the quicker half-backs, and that's why Leeds haven't cast Jordan Lilley aside just yet and sent him out on loan instead. He's only 19 and Duffy's comments don't suggest he intends to build the team around him. He's giving the lad a chance to develop and I can't imagine it will cost the club much. He might even be out on loan for much of the season, but I can't imagine that Fev would have won against Leigh without Danny Maskill?

He played against us for Fax in the pre-season game at The Shay prior to the 2017 season and shaped very well but also looked very raw. The grade he has been playing at in Australia isn't very high and you'd think he'll be some way off being a 1st team player at this stage, but his style (nippy and can pass well) fits in with the style Duffy would want in a half back and it's encouraging that we're signing a young player who might need plenty of time...my 1st thought like Blues Ox was that this might be a confirmation that we are seriously planning to run a reserve team.

The Fax-supporting editor of RL World seems to be disputing your claim...

The rumour linking Jarrod Sammut with Halifax is wide of the mark. There is no substance to it at all, I'm reliably informed.

Fev prob thought they were signing an Aussie to add to their international ranks until his ferret tried to bite Duffy!

H"mm. Punchard. An apt name for an ex-Fryston player methinks.

Well you would have to Punch Hard if you wanted to Fry Stone. Mind you with initials MP he should be good at passing things on.
