There are always "kids" who break into First Grade before they are 20. There were 3-4 last season.Yea, I believe we need a genuine backup fullback in the top 30. Someone that has proven themselves against men.
Reece Walsh was unknown prior to the season but showed that you can be a star fullback in the NRL.
This "kid" we just signed may be of a similar quality. Maybe not. But I'd rather take a punt on him than a 'name' fullback who has shown he is not up to NRL standard and commands a much higher salary.
