Discussion in 'Parramatta Eels' started by Gronk, Jun 21, 2016.
I'd like to see the average person have a go at even one day of the pre-season training.
The Eels have two roster spots still available in their top 30 and their next recruit is more likely to be a front-rower. Parramatta and the Dragons were two of the clubs interested in England prop Alex Walmsley, but it is believed both have baulked at his asking price.
Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett coached Walmsley during the World Cup and the Broncos have emerged as the new favourites for the signature of the St Helens prop.
Oh good, now it'll become a butthurt Broncos salary thread for a few pages again....
So what’s the time frame again? We need to fill two roster spots by when?
We don’t hear rumors these days which might be a good thing but anyone heard any whispers that we are close to a signing??
We need to fill 1 by round 1 and the 2nd spot by July I think.
I’d like to see Dave Taylor handle a fairly highly paid job in the corporate sector.
I’d like to see Taylor tie his own Shoes.
He uses velcro mate...
And still gets someone else to do them up.
So, the SMH claims that Walmsley is asking too much for either us or the Dragons to make a serious offer - but notoriously tight-fisted (particularly when it comes to front-rowers) Wayne Bennett will pay him what he wants?
Going there for less to be closer to his family....... Brisbane is closer to England than Sydney
He could replace Craig McLachlan in Rocky Horror Show...
I don't really rate Walmsley, anyway, tbh.
Agreed mate, Plodder IMO.
The average person maybe...but they're would be plenty of people in the world fitter than NRL players who earn Zero dollars because they're fit.
he'll take a much smaller amount if he plays for Brisbane seeing everyone else does
they'll get Schuey to clear it
well Walmsley is staying in England
Do you think it would be easy doing the same repetetive job for 8hrs a day for minimal money. I have seen what jobs some factory workers do. It would be mind numbing.
Some athletes have pressure while others do not. Hayne is under pressure as is Moses or Norman. A lot more then say David Gower.
