Welsby’s showing at the World Cup was great news for Saints really. I’m sure plenty had him on their lists to scout and other than the first game, he had a really quiet time of it. If he’d kept that first games form up, I think enquiries would’ve been flooding in but they’ll be wary now and will want to see a bit more.

Looking at the World Cup overall and then with his comments since, you could see somebody going in for Williams again.

NRL clubs are probably rubbing their hands at the fact they could get him cheaper after he didn’t have the best WC.

Going to the nrl didn't do Roby any harm but if he had gone I'm quite sure that he would have been an even better player.
I think that the same would apply if Welsby doesn't go.
It's a bit of a cliche but to be the very best you have to compete with the very best.
Maybe Welsby doesn't think that he has to "prove" himself? As you say he is only a young guy and with time on his side so no need to jump too soon particularly if he is enjoying himself at Saints.

It did, it cost him a fortune.

Just got back in from an evening with Mal Meninga at Saints. Interesting that when he was asked who the next Aussie superstar to come through is he didn’t really want to comment.

However unprompted he turned the conversation to England and said Welsby and Pearce Paul were two outstanding talents. He confirmed that the NRL will 100% come knocking for Welsby and that KPP is definitely going there in 2024.

He also said he thinks Welsby will do really well over there (if he goes)
