Luke Walsh: Pleased by the standard of his new St Helens team-mates
St Helens new boy Luke Walsh cannot wait for the new Super League season to begin after leaving Penrith Panthers.
The 26-year-old scrum-half agreed a two-year-old with Saints last May and is now part of the club's pre-season programme.
The Australian playmaker, who has settled quickly into life in England, has been impressed by the standard of his new team-mates.
"I was happy when Saints decided to sign me and I'm still happy," Walsh told the club's official website.
"Training has gone well and I'm impressed with the players. They put in a lot of hard work and skill into their work."
"Training has gone well and I'm impressed with the players. They put in a lot of hard work and skill into their work.
"It was a tough decision at first to make; I had to bring my family over here and leave my mum and dad, but I have settled in well and that has made it easy.
"The coaching staff and the boys have made it easy as has everyone at the club."
Walsh has joined along with fellow recruit Mose Masoe and he feels he can bring a new dimension to Nathan Brown's squad.
"I really can't wait to get started. My role is pretty simple really - to bring my experience, kicking and organising game to the club," he continued.
"I've come here to win things and we have a great squad. Everything is in place, now we have to gel and go from there."
