Galea: Super League on the right track

New Widnes signing Danny Galea thinks that Super League is slowly but surely catching up to the NRL.

Galea, 30, has played for clubs such as Penrith, Wests and Canberra, but after only a couple of training sessions with the Vikings he is already impressed.

The utility forward had this to say on the club’s official website:

“I think that the Super League competition is slowly but surely catching the NRL up. From training with the boys so far, I can see that the sessions are very intense, professional and NRL-like.

“Also the staff are very knowledgable and have already been helpful to me as a player.”

Galea will bring a wealth of experience with him to the Select Security Stadium after over 100 first grade matches in Australia.

“From the NRL, I learnt all about consistency, and how important it is in rugby league to stay at your peak,” he added.

“That for me is the hardest part because you can play one or two games at the same level, but ask somebody to do 26, and it becomes an altogether different challenge.

“To back it up week in, week out with injuries and other problems is really tough. You have to prepare to help your teammates out, because it is a squad game now.”
