  • Back up half was a yawning gap last year, so this is a very good signing. As others have mentioned, he won't be just waiting in reserve grade, he'll be pushing for that utility spot on the bench.

  • Did he play for the knights?


    • Sure did!

      • Thanks EE , just did some youtube searches he seems to go ok . good pick up

  • I imagine he will spend the entire two year in reserve grade unless we have major injury problems.

    He doesn't have a great CV.  2 x wooden spoon winner with Newcastle and then he was cut, he was also in the London Broncos team which were relegated.

    He was good for Norths in reserve grade though so that is probably his level.

  • The way I see it is we're gonna give D.Brown another rest midway through next season for a few weeks (following his back problems last season) now we have a ready made 1st Grade standard back up... smart decision I think!! 

    • Thats what I was thinking. That back will be an ongoing problem.

        • So did Pat Cummins. Affected him for years. Maybe he will fine but there is at least risk that the problems will be ongoing in the short term and he may need to be rested but now we have him covered with an ex junior kangaroo half.


        • Hot spots, or in general those types of injuries can be recurring up to the age of around 25 as that is when they are growing the most. Their bones are still maturing and learning how to handle loads. 

          Hot spots are precursors to stress fractures, which is why he was back in about 3 months as opposed to 12 months.

          He will need to be managed for the foreseeable future and we may have to rest him to preserve his back and ensure he can play regularly. He pulled out of the Nines due to back soreness so that indicates the hot spots never truly resolved, they just reduced to a point where he wasn't at risk of a stress fracture.

          I'd assume the strength and conditioning staff will do everything they can to keep him fit but in reality, rest is literally the only cure for this type of condition. He'll eventually grow out of it.
