I thought Sam Powell played well, I’ve been one of his biggest critics but he’s seems to have pulled his socks up. Navarette seems to be running hard too as do the rest of the forwards but we will get mullered by the Saints front row next week if Flower and Clubb are out. We desperately need another 2 props ASAP.

It was a good all round performance and we needed to give someone a good hiding to boost confidence.

We were good but KR were bad, they never looked up for it all game. Who did impress me for KR was Josh Drinkwater, if we could sign him to play alongside Hastings we would be very dangerous.

I doubt we will go for drinkwater as he was available last season but left catalans for HKR

who says we werent in for him? he says he chose KR because of Tim Sheens. However, if KR are still scrapping for survival and dont show that are a team with a decent future, he could be tempted to move.

I think his wage demands ruled him out of a move to us. He was after marquee money and held out for it.

When it didn’t come he was left with not many options other than KR if he wanted to play top flight rugby.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

Don't rate Drinkwater at all - below average player who wouldn't have improved us.

Besides I think Leuluai has been one of our best this year. Plus I don't think he's missed a game (if he has it will only be the odd one or two).

Drinkwater has had a 4 month purple patch with Catalans in his career. He’s struggled this year and the HKR fans have been on his case.

Rather stick with Leuluai, give Sammut the shirt or even throw Harry Smith in tbh.

what has Tommy said about 2020? He's due to go into the backroom for next season isnt he?
So long as Harry Smith is ready to step up next year and cover Hastings and Sammut - no need to hold him back

Wasn't impressed with Drinkwater at all. Tommy was way better.

I'd be very happy for Tommy to go round again. His kicking has always been awful but I love the rest of his game.

I think with Tommy it's his high kicking that is awful, he seldom seems to manage to produce a decent bomb. But his low grass-cutters into space can be quite effective. He plays the game hard but fair, and has been a great servant to the club.
