Walmsley, 27, is understood to be attracting plenty of interest from NRL Clubs, with the St George Illawarra Dragons believed to be leading the race for the St Helen’s power forward. Walmsley would join recently signed England International and Captain James Graham, who will make the switch from the Canterbury Bulldogs and will play for the Dragons in 2018.

NRL Club St George Illawarra will not have it all their own way trying to lure Walmsley to the NRL, as it is believed England Coach Wayne Bennett is interested in bringing the Englishman to the Brisbane Broncos. Other Clubs believed interested in Walmsley’s services are to be the Manly Sea Eagles, Newcastle Knights, NQ Cowboys and the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
