Former Gold Coast play maker Ash Taylor has been upgraded to a fulltime NRL contract for the Vodafone Warriors’ 2022 campaign.

The 26-year-old Queenslander was initially signed on a train and trial deal in October with a club top 30 option for 2022.

“We’re excited to confirm Ash is staying with us. He has been a great addition since joining the club and has more than met our expectations,” said Vodafone Warriors general manager football Craig Hodges.

Ash has fitted in well with our group and we we’re really enjoying having him around,” said Vodafone Warriors captain Tohu Harris. “He has given us an experienced voice and has added to the competition in our halves

Good news on Ash Taylor.
He can play just got to have his mind clear and motivated.
I ve watched zillions of Titans games live. He is not much of a talker so Shaun Johnson will be in charge.
Maybe N Brown or Stacey actually I reckon Stace can motivate Ash!
the thing that stood out to me watching him live is how much pace he lost- in his touch days he was a carver.
i know he had a serious hip injury so not sure how thats affected him long term. he looked a little overweight too but if he can get fit and firing we've got a real bargin on our hands.

Yeah not much speed in our halves options wherever you look, except Kodi who no one seems to want in the team. Big footy brains though, which is what we've lacked lately.

I heard the same thing, been ripping it up in training and the team impressed with how he goes about his business and the extras he puts in.. who would have thought.
to be brutally honnest in that blue back line wouldnt need to show to much to impress

Connor Watson is at the Roosters.
They may see Metcalf as their back up Fullback rather than switching Hynes there, who is spending the preseason training in the halves by all accounts
Doh
I meant Connor Tracey

Connor Tracey can play there at a pinch (fullback)
Kade Dykes one of their 19 year old development players can play fullback later in the season.
Sam Stonestreet also their 2021 junior of the year can play fullback also.
