he's going a lot better than what we have got, but i'd imagine would command a bigger fee and wage than drinkwater to be fair

But should we be aiming for ‘something better than we’ve got’ if we what have is awful or should we be targeting a genuinely class scrum half? I suggested Drinkwater after we played Leigh in preseason and most people who responded on here were very much against the idea. He’s doing for Catalan what Dobson did for us and I’d be happy if we got him.

yes definitely Drinkwater out of the two, someone just brought Finn up so I was adding in he is another I rate.

Liam Finn. Are you really serious? He's slower than Matty Smith ever was and he's almost 35 years of age. Heading for Bradford next year I believe.

SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

yet he is playing twice as well as smith, Williams and Powell combined.

i'm not saying he is my number one priority! just a passing comment. I massively rate Drinkwater and he is a good suit for wigan both on the pitch and as far as finances are concerned.

I watch Trinity most weeks. Finn has been a great signing for the club, done a lot better than most expected, he is on a msssive decline this year though.

Old Father Time has caught up with him, both physically and mentally too.

He was never one to make a clean break even if he had the space to as he never backed himself due to his lack of pace but he was always a great organiser, however he seems to have lost a yard of pace mentally too and is also struggling with that this year.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

How many Wakefield games have you seen this season?

just the ones I can watch on TV because i'm a very bad fan who never goes to games and therefore my opinion doesn't count of course...

I don't see what is wrong with my response, Finn is still having a decent season whether its below par for his standards or not. the fact I think he is still doing better than the 3 I named merely implies I think he is doing better than them in comparison. it doesn't mean I think we should sign him. I will once again maintain that I came on here to rate Drinkwater. I simply commented on someone mentioning Finn.
