Walsh: Fairleigh Was Key

LUKE Walsh has revealed he took advice from David Fairleigh before signing on the dotted line at Saints.

Speaking after the ink dried on a two-year deal from 2014 he said the former prop, who played for the club in 2001, gave him all the gen.

“I know the history of the club there and I spoke to Dave Fairleigh too about what it was like,” the 26-year-old said. “I know it is a strong club with a young team and after speaking to Nathan Brown it went from there. I felt excited about it.

“It was always in the back of my head to come over there and experience playing in Super League. Now I have a good opportunity.

“It will be tough at the start as my wife and young boy will need to settle in, but I’m sure it will be a good challenge.”

Luke describes himself as an “old school half back” whose job will be to guide the team around as well as bringing a good kicking and running game.

“Hopefully the fans will enjoy that,” he said. “I know there is a good side there and they need a half back to steer it around, give some options and a good kicking game. I am looking forward to it.”
