Is any winger worth marquee money too?

Bill Ashurst would have been worth every penny.

Hull KR have signed centre Tom Opacic from Parramatta. That is a really good signing.

I suppose it’s a case by case basis and the fact we seem to have been so strong in the back row in recent years maybe makes me take the position for granted.

When the winger is scoring regularly, when everytime he gets the ball everyone in the stadium is out of their seat then yes.

John Ferguson
Martin Offiah
Jason Robinson
Inga Tuigamala

All the above are wingers from my time that I would class as 'marquee worthy' if playing in the modern era. Would I add Bevan French to that? Yeah, I probably would.

What Matty said. And Bevan is not just just scoring tries, he's chipping in with a fair few assists too.

Dallas was good but not in the same league as those mentioned for me. Not even close.

Newcastle Knights reporting they have signed Will Price and KPP for the 2024 season however they are working to try to get them both over for 2023.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

So ... no mention of Bevan?

Presumably, if he's going there for '23, they'd be in a position to announce it by now?
