  • 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.

       

      • The guy had hot spots, which are a maybe indicator of stress fractures. A common occurence in young sportsmen PM.

        The emphasis is on "had", there is no reason to believe it will be an ongoing problem, unless you know something about his diagnosis that has not been made public?

        • 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.

           

          • Cummins actually had "stress fractures" I am probably trying to make the glass half full rather than the half empty implications..... but that's fine.
