Maybe negotiate an early release for Reece Walsh in return for someone.

I would be more pumped if we were trialling Asi at centre as what happens if Asi makes a reasonable but not amazing job at 6 over the next few games and then we sign him.
We have metcalf and Volkman already as reasonable halves next year to partner Shaun.
Asi also plays centre so would like to see him tried there as it would fit our vacancies better with Arthars leaving.
I think this move is not necessarily an Asi trial for next year but a legit attempt by Jones to win the match with the best available spine combination he can think of based on current form. This isn't about investing in the future as Chanel Harris-Tavita wouldn't be out there either.
I think this is some moneyball picks by Jones.
Asi is probably better than Volkman but a wee bit.
The think tank likes Chanel Harris-Tavita at fullback as he is defensively sound
They must be thinking of bringing walsh in at standoff in the second half.
Perhaps they discussed giving walsh a full game at 6 but decided this compromised minimised their risk exposure better given they might not trust walsh defending at 6
There’s a rumour going around that the storm are interested for the rest of the season with Papenhuyzen done.
Keen on Walsh?There’s a rumour going around that the storm are interested for the rest of the season with Papenhuyzen done.
On the sharks forum is where I saw it. No idea of any of the details. They apparently have Nathan Brown from the eels heading there too after the dragons wouldn’t release Sims early.Keen on Walsh?
Would it be a swap? Or we just trade him there for some reason?
Yeah I hope they utilise this and not just shovel it to Shaun Johnson every set.Well done Stacey. Great team. Asi has been pretty good over the last few weeks
Hope its not true. Only for the reason that the competition is becoming a bit of a joke now. When Townsend was released temporarily to play for us last year I was obviously backing him and hoping it would work well for the club as I would for anyone who put on the Warriors jersey. However it just didn't feel right at the time. Leilua going to to the Cowboys at the midway point of this season wasn't right.There’s a rumour going around that the storm are interested for the rest of the season with Papenhuyzen done.
As long he doesn't get us the spoon....W/L padding aside thats not a coaching record you really dont want.Good for Stace, not trying to pad his W/L record, Walsh just isn't having the same impact anyway. by the same logic he should probably give Katoa some gametime
Asi's form in Q cup is hard to ignore so he really grabbed the chance. Would have preferred to see Shaun Johnson dropped and Volkman played at 7.Don’t know if it was Stacey or Webster but I’m happy with this team. Hopefully Asi steps up and gets a deal. Assume with him over Volkman they see Volkman as an out and out 7 and Asi a 6. Both so young, hopefully they can be a 10 year + halves combo for us!!
I don't think the titans and/or tigers can win 3 games and overtake us, agree I don't want a spoon but think we're safeAs long he doesn't get us the spoon....W/L padding aside thats not a coaching record you really dont want.
I'd trade him for Will Warbrick, he's a beast. Makes lots of metres, is unstoppable close to the line and a major threat in the air. What do we have to gain if we hold him?There’s a rumour going around that the storm are interested for the rest of the season with Papenhuyzen done.
