So a return for an academy boy.
I wonder if that means Dylan is out for some time?

Great player. Will be a good addition to the squad.

Tom Vickers has said on Twitter that he's not here as cover for Dylan, who is progressing well, but more as cover for Haywood and Marshall who are carrying knocks.

One of the few who left Saints and went on to greater things imo

Apparently Quins let him go at the end of last season so he's a free agent, I know there was a bit of a clear out given the change at the top but that's surprising. Oh well, to our benefit I suppose.

Totally agree Tedge. Hooker is such a unique spot the third in line almost invariably have to move on with a bit of fingers crossed. It happened more recently with Matti Williams but sadly without the success Joe achieved at Quinn's

"ďA number of our hookers are carrying niggles heading into the back end of preseason, and we want to make sure they are back to full fitness before they return with a long season ahead. We have three important preseason matches in the coming weeks, so it's important to make sure we are covered."

Joe did well at Quins up to a point where he picked up an injury and struggled since. Will provide good experienced cover but if our three return to full fitness I struggle to see where he would stay on at Saints

He was quite poor for us (quins) in the end. I wondered if he would benefit from a change of clubs. Hope it goes well for him but there is a fair bit of improving to do.

Always thought Joe was one that got away, glad to see him back.

Must be something in the water- Tigers have signed Ross Macmillan.

What is savvy about this signing is as a saints academy player I suspect he is discounted for the salary cap.

All to the good if thatís true, but I thought there was some kind of time limit on academy credits?

I see another of our massively underused and underrated hookers Ross McMillan has signed for Tigers.
