IT’S taken three years but Group 9 club Brothers in Wagga has finally got its man.
Continuing a mega-impressive recruitment drive in recent months, Brothers have snared dynamic Wee Waa halfback Josh Trindall for the Group 9 season starting in April.
The signing of the 24-year-old whiz complements the Brethren’s acquisition of Joe Williams and Steve Morris – and definitely puts the team in the frame for the premiership.
Significantly, the move from Group 4 allows Trindall to link with a club he nimbly sidestepped in 2011.
After making a sensational impact with Southcity in his debut Group 9 season in 2009, Trindall abruptly shifted to Wee Waa the following year.
In late 2010, however, Trindall was trumpeted as a gun recruit for Brothers but the deal fell through.
Recalling those dramatic events, Trindall said his life was “all over the shop” at the time.
“I’m bit more settled now,” Trindall said.
“I’m all signed up with them (Brothers) and looking forward to having a good year.”
Returning to Wagga after a four-year break, Trindall admits he is expecting the Group 9 premiership to provide a “bit of challenge”.
