Just if anyone is interested:



Canberra have continued their impressive retention and recruitment drive with the re-signing of outside back Adrian Purtell.


Purtell will remain with the Raiders through to the end of the 2011 season after rejecting advances from reigning premiers Melbourne.

The Storm had hoped to attract Purtell to fill the void left by Israel Folau's impending departure, but with a spot in the centres up for grabs at Canberra as well, the 23-year-old decided to remain put.

He joins Todd Carney and Bronx Goodwin in re-signing with the club, while Penrith backrower Nathan Smith and Wests Tigers hooker Shane Flanagan will link up with green machine next season.




and......



The Gold Coast Titans have re-signed speedster Shannon Walker until the end of 2010.

Hailed as the fastest player in rugby league, Walker is yet to make his NRL debut but the 19-year-old fullback has scored five tries in as many matches this year for the Titans in the national youth competition.

"Shannon is an incredible prospect and is on his way towards representing the club at NRL level in the near future," said Titans managing director Michael Searle.

"His speed, agility and explosiveness needs to be seen to be believed

To be honest I thought Walker was definitely good to watch but I doubt he is the fastest.

He put the gas on one of our players - I forget who - and ran around him to score. The commentators then spoke of the pace the kid has and I believe that's where the comments have come from. But that's definitely not a fair and accurate representation of his speed.

Put them on a track with some of the fastest in the comp ala Cooper Vuna and then we can see.

Regardless, he is definitely a hot prospect.

Walker's a freak. If he isn't the fastest then he's damn close to it. The 2007 QLD cup Grand final was amazing to watch when Walker got going. If he finds his feet in first grade he'll be something special.

that guy Babar? for the Dogs in Toyota Cup has some wheels on him too!

Good that Green Machine are signing young talent, but just like the others, get develop by Canberra only to join other clubs.

Walker certainly has some gas.

Titans are fitting an immense amount of talent under the cap, their team certainly is going to be strong next year.
