    He's ok and has utility value, experience and is not over the hill. Gives us options and competition for spots.

    Still not confident that he is going to be a defensive rock and has struggled to hold down a permanent spot at the sharks. As others have said an Ayshford/Beale combo isn't going to challenge any defences.

    It looks like Kearney's plan to turn us into the Dragons of the last few years is starting to take shape.

    He's a walk up starter in place of Kata no question but what makes it a smart signing is his experience as a utility player.

    Fus should be left to develop his game, in recent times there's been to much responsibility put on young shoulders to adapt to a new position for the sake of injury and its cost us.

    Sadly, most of the time we hear "under" mentioned in regards to the Warriors, it's followed by "achieved"

    Seriously? Was it like a proper comment or just something offhanded? That cunt needs the biggest of uppercuts if he's leaked it before the cooling off period has ended.

    I kind of hope it does. Would give the club a reason to cut the cancer out.

    In the ideal world Beale and Ayshford are the perfect back up centres and would be a sign your club has great depth......the fact their probably going to be our starters highlights how poorly developed our junior "talent" has been and the shortcomings in Kata's and co's games.

    I havent watched much of the Sharkies this year. How's Gerard been for them ?

    any good?

    How is he injury wise? clean ?

    I want to bag him but to be fair havent watched him play much this year so keen to get the good oil before i shoot my prediction on whether hes a good fit for this club

    Beale to the wing, Fus to centre please

    Wouldn't say he's been setting the world alight - been playing right winger mostly. Even last year he wasn't a certain starter, playing some games from the bench, including one at 0 minutes, so that might be the position Kearney has lined up for him.

    i see Beale along the same lines as Darius Boyd,not a great deal of natural flair but makes up for it with a fairly good safe basic skill set and an above average footy brain......the latter,the Warriors obviously need heaps more of....its a positive

    Always looked like he should be faster and just plain better than he actually is.

    Played under some good coaches who probably got the best out of him...and if that is the best he has to offer i dread to think how poor he'll be at the mighty Vodafone Warriors under our genius coaching staff.:rolleyes:

    So sad it's comical.

    The club has finally announced the signing, better late than never I suppose.

    [Signing] Beale confirmed for three years

    With the contract signed only today, the Vodafone Warriors have been able to confirm Kiwi and Cronulla utility Gerard Beale will join the club on a three-year deal from next season.

    The 27-year-old 2016 NRL premiership winner is the club’s third new signing after back rowers Tohu Harris (Melbourne) and Leivaha Pulu (Gold Coast) were secured earlier in the year.

    “While there has been a lot of discussion about Gerard coming to the club, we weren’t in a position to make an announcement until his contract had been officially signed by both parties,” said Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George.

    “Now the formalities have been completed, we’re delighted to have him included in our 2018 squad. He was a premiership winner with Cronulla last year and brings exceptional NRL and international experience.”

    Vodafone Warriors head coach Stephen Kearney said Beale would be invaluable for the club.

    “Gerard is professional in all he does and has a wonderful attitude,” he said.

    “The way he has overcome adversity with injuries earlier in his career shows the sort of character he has. He’s going to be a great addition to our squad with his ability to play in all the positions in the outside backs.”

    Heading into the 2017 finals this weekend, Beale has played 161 NRL matches and scored 44 tries in a nine-season career which has seen him used at fullback, centre and on the wing.

    He was 18 when he made his NRL debut for Brisbane in 2009, his only match that year, followed by 10 more appearances in 2010. He also played 31 matches for the Broncos in the NYC from 2008-2010.

    Brisbane-born Beale, who is of Maori heritage, played for the Junior Kangaroos in 2010 but switched allegiance and made the first of 10 Test appearances for the Kiwis in 2011.

    After 63 matches with the Broncos from 2009-2012, Beale spent the next two seasons with St George Illawarra – the first cut short by a season-ending knee injury – before linking with the Sharks in 2015.

    He has appeared 70 times for Cronulla. In his 20 matches so far this year he has been used predominantly on the wing, scoring seven tries and averaging 11 runs and 109 metres a game.
