Announced. Heard about this last week and my reaction was that heís a very good young guy. 6 foot and 15 odd stone so much bigger than Jamie Elliott, for example. Very abrasive too..... good signing.

He had zero chance of becoming a long term wallaby with the conveyor belt of islander imports flying on their wings.

I thought we needed more options at full back and we've now signed two decent prospects so I'm happy. I haven't watched much Super Rugby this year, can anyone give some insight?

Great stuff.

There is some serious talent in our backline now.
A lot of young hungry guys as well, can't wait to see them in action.

Insight if anyone wants to watch it.

A good try scorer, but also a skillful player. Heavily involved in a lot of backs moves, and runs very good support lines.

Wonder if he had a word with Mr Horne as well.

well of course heíd have spoken to Rob and Taqele. Boyd really is a draw for these guys.

Interesting that Boyd is not signing any smal men

Yeah there does seem to be a emphasis on improving the physical stature of our backline.
Be interesting too see if we bring in another centre.

I would like too see Harry M, given a shot at 13 to be honest. But depends if he would want too nail that down as his position or does he want too right for the 15 shirt.

Has all the attributes too be a very good 13, especially with some powerful wingers outside him.

We will see.

Credit where it's due, excellent signing.
This is the standard we should expect.

Totally agree, Harry could be a good 13. So far when he's played at 15 he's fumbled low balls, missed tackles or not read the play so is in the wrong place. When he has ball in hand and runs that's when he shows his skills.

Great step, great pace, looks to really take on and beat defenders.
Canít wait to see him in our back line. Just the player we want. Talented, young and hungry.
Happy Tuesday!

Agree, agree, agree, so much conjecture about Harry at 15 which seems to have all begun with Eddie Jones comments. His best season was when he played mainly 12 and was making line breaks for fun, 12 or 13 for me and maybe next season his best chance is the 13 shirt.

Harry could play 10/12/13 or 15 but most important thing would be to sort out his defensive frailities and Id also like to see him use his size when needed.

But his hands, vision, skill, brain and boot, he has so much ability, I really hope he moves on with the coaches help.

Could be a big year for Harry and hopefully so smiling smiley

Just wondering if there is a Scottish connection, especially since he was educated at a Presbyterian school. If he can't get into the Wallabies maybe he could be coming over to be seen by Gregor.

This is great news, Saints need players with a little speciality to push on for long term success. We were a bit lacking in top wingers (when passed to) with George heading off and hopefully Tom Collins can step up as well. I wonder if Ken Pisi will feature much this year?

Welcome signing. Like he can play full back.

A question, who is responsible for updating the Arrivers/Leavers thread as we now have two names to add to the newby list?

Re: NEWS: Saints Sign Andrew Kellaway

Clearly chosen for his pace which we have lacked at times. Ken Pisi was very much a fringe player for most of last season but he does respond well to challenges so can't be written off

Thatís one heck of a back line in development
Now if the forwards can just get front foot ball and get them moving - game on

'Tahs are looking short on wingers now as we've poached two of them.

Handy player for sure. Plays wing or 15, quick, strong, steps well and rides tackles easily by the look of it too. Looking good for next year.
