Walsh must prove himself soon, says Geyer

Penrith legend Mark Geyer believes it may be time for the club to try a different option at halfback, suggesting Luke Walsh should be dropped.

Geyer’s comments come after Walsh’s shaky performance in Penrith’s 28-10 loss to the Titans at Centrebet Stadium today.

Geyer told Triple M radio that Walsh had one to two games to prove himself, before coach Ivan Cleary must take action.

“There’s some options you might have a look at – maybe [Tom] Humble halfback with [Dean] Whare at five-eighth and [Josh] Mansour fullback just to mix things up a bit,” he said.

Geyer labelled Walsh a “one trick pony”.

“We see glimpses of him taking the line on,” he said.

“I don’t see what stops him doing it six or seven times a half… that is what is stopping Penrith being a good rugby league team.”

Penrith has struggled to find a game-breaking number seven since Craig Gower controversially quit the club in 2007.
