Walsh Seeking Special Game

LUKE Walsh is hoping for a happy reunion on Friday.

The scrum half made his bow for Newcastle in 2007 against the Roosters and is hoping to replicate the success of what he says was a ‘special’ game.

He said: “I made my debut against the Roosters back in 2007 and it was an amazing experience.

“It was special because we managed to beat them that night and it’s an occasion I’ll never forget. We were without a lot of our senior blokes in that game but we managed to pull off a pretty big upset.

“The Roosters are obviously a massively different team from then, but hopefully we can pull off something equally special by getting a win on Friday.

“They have some great players who I have a lot of respect for and we know it will be tough, but we know we’re a good side on our day and we’re confident we can do a job on them.”

He continued: “It should be an entertaining series. I’m looking forward to watching the other games and seeing how they get on.

“It’s a unique event in any sport, putting two massive leagues against each other. As a Rugby League fan, I can’t wait to see how it all goes.”
