Drinkwater again tonight inspires cats to another win. Opinions on having him at Wigan?

Really annoys me when people assume we are too big a club to sign certain players!

When Sneyd left Salford and became available or when Gale left Bradford no doubt the same was said of both these and both now perform extremely well at their respective clubs.

On the face of it, there is no risk involved with taking a chance on a player that has excelled since having his chance and shown (backed up with his statistics) he is up there amongst the best in Super League this season in a stuttering Catalans side.

For goodness sake, in the last few years we (Wigan) have taken chances on Matty Smith from Salford who had done the rounds with Crusaders & Widnes previously, Blake Green from Hull KR and Michael Dobson also from Catalans - those all worked out fairly well.

Josh Woods is very capable, but as our starting 7 next year I would have reservations.

Catalans upturn in form has coincided with him joining and the games I have seen he’s been instrumental.
He certainly wouldn’t be a wow signing but the form hes in and his probable low wage I would be fairly happy signing him, plus he can kick goals.

I'd go with Woods at 7 if Tommy doesn't do 2019 assuming Powell will be 9.
Woods has a very good skill set which is only going to get better the more games he plays.
As has been said, I'd rather have Bousquet than Drinkwater. FPN has gone and Sutton going with no sign of a replacement for either. Signing a quality prop or two for 2019 has to come before any other position.

Pretty much. Now that SL in general can't attract NRL quality like we used to be able to we are left with homegrown and leftover NRL players. SL is slipping every year, you get what you pay for and SL clubs can't pay much anymore, not compared to union and the NRL.

Correct, it's simple mathematics but some here seem to live in lala land...
Officially RLFAN's most Doe-eyed Happy Clapper.

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.

Not sure if we should go after him but the way he has instigated the turnaround for Catalans has been remarkable.

Good to see them doing well and Sam will improve them further next year.
