I have been drinking from the drinkwater tap for the last three years.Theres been lots of talks about the halves merry go-round currently with Pearce, Brooks and the rest of them.
There’s an article about Corey Norman being looked at for the Knights, as well as Scott Drinkwater, given that he will likely be behind Townsend, Dearden and Hammer at fb.
Depending on the situation with Metcalf, if he doesn’t come here I’d be pretty stoked to get Drinkwater. Has a good kicking and running game, somewhat erratic but jeeze he can carve up at times
I don’t know why his own team and fans don’t rate him. The cowboys fans don’t like him when I go on their forum. I think they don’t like the fact he doesn’t show up sometimes.
But for my money he is quite consistent.
I hope we are in this conversation. If we end up shipping out Chanel Harris-Tavita and getting back drinkwater that would be sweet.
As a final note just because I can. I think Chanel Harris-Tavita played decent this year. I also think his defence is, and this will be hard to swallow for some, quite underrated on this site. His defence is not just good or solid. He is the best defensive half in the nrl and I could make a case that there are not any centre’s much better than him at defence. He would be for me the best back I have seen in my life at putting a defensive hit on. His hits are simply stunning and breathtaking and they lift the whole team and terrify the opposition.
Some people say his defence shouldn’t count in evaluating him as a half. I disagree. I don’t think he deserves many points for his defence but does deserve some credit just like kodi gets points subtracted for being complete and utter shit at defence.
Chts defence is at Demi God level. One of his hits this year made me physically jump out of my seat. He stopped a 5 on 3 overlap by knocking the opponent into the northern hemisphere.
All that pumping him up, drinkwater is better. I think we should be working the phone and leveraging Chanel Harris-Tavita who is most definitely a tradeable asset that multiple teams would like to have. A year in an Australian system and they can definitely Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad him to another level.
