Every diehard rugby league fan knows that NRL pre-seasons are always the worst.
On the positive note, it gives us a chance to salivate at the prospect of new recruits at different clubs.
Here I rank what I believe to be the Top 5 signings of season 2019.
5. Leeson Ah Mau
Moving over to the NZ Warriors to stay in touch with his family, Ah Mau has largely been an unheralded figure for the Dragons in the last few seasons. For St George, Ah Mau was typically coming off the bench and utilised in a power role by Mary McGregor. Now playing potentially 55 mins a game as starting prop, with a terrific offload in his arsenal, I’m expecting Leeson to be the forward leader of the Warriors pack and potentially become one of the premier props in the league.
