The 24-year old Penrith Panther is joining the Rhinos from next season, and qualifies for England on the back of his mother’s heritage. The second rower made his first grade debut earlier this season for the Panthers against Parramatta Eels.
But Achurch said he still hasn’t decided on which country he wants to represent.
“There is a long way to go between now and then and I need to be playing well, but training and playing with world class players can only help me develop as a player.”
Gareth Widdop’s contribution to the match was a try in the 75th minute that secured the win for the Storm after coming through a five game losing sequence.
Widdop was the final recipient of a last tackle play that went through six pairs of hands before the Englishman touched down across the Titans’ try line.
Sam Burgess’ try was the only thing Rabbitohs fans had to cheer about in the third minute of the game. Adam Reynolds’ kick was caught cleanly by Chris McQueen, before offloading to the most famous Burgess brother down under.
However the Rabbitohs were subsequently hammered with two tries from Jorge Taufua either side of half time giving the Sea Eagles the edge.
Jack Reed was once again back in the Broncos side, but had little to cheer about as the Broncos were defeated 22-14 against Canterbury.
The Bulldogs were missing the injured James Graham, but they were still too strong for the Broncos despite falling behind inside the opening 10 minutes.
Ben Te’o and Corey Norman both scored early tries, and it wasn’t until just before half time when the Bulldogs got on the scoreboard.
Chris Heighington saw his side defeat St Geroge Illawarra 22-12at Allianz Stadium.
A Tim Moltzen hat trick sealed the deal for the Tigers, who continue to challenge for a play off spot.
Liam Fulton added a try for the Tigers just after the break, but Moltzen was in fine form and Morris’ second try wasn’t enough to keep the Dragons in the match.
