So is Drinkwater going to be confirmed then? Not seen anything. Should I ring the shop?

The announcement will probably be part of the spin for the Season Ticket roll-out.

No squad is perfect (apart from soooper dooooper Saints obviously who no doubt would defeat a combined best of Anzac team while blindfolded). I am a lot happier with this seasons squad than last. Just hope they gel. Ratchford isn’t the perfect solution to centre especially given his increasing tendency to run laterally and cut off space to the side, but is that any worse than last season with the out of form King?
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Talking of lateral, or any worse than Mata'utia? If he puts his winger away with a timely pass presumably lining up with Curie and Ashton then that might work

the left wing probably has more chance of being put away by matautia than whoever is outside him.

Players tend to run laterally a lot when the forwards aren’t finding their way through and the team is stuck in their own 20. Take Makinson at the weekend as an example.

I think if the pack fires next year like we all hope it will, then we’ll see some better centre play than we expect. We may even be a little surprised. Remember how good Jordan Turner was on the wing for Cas, for the short time he spent there before retirement?

Interesting to see quite a few articles linking George Williams with a move back to the NRL. Seems like you might have a fight on your hands to keep him too.

It'd be quite Warrington to sort the pack and then end up with no halfbacks after years with the opposite problem :mrgreen:

I'm sure it's just his agent setting the scene for a contract upgrade after his superb performances at the World Cup.

I wouldn't be surprised if we are a springboard back to Wigan tbh. Him & Wane seem to have a good working relationship.

I think the fact that we have Williams as a marque is huge in his retention. We have been blessed with world class talent in the halves on paper. Briers was absolute quality in the Smith era, then Sandow, Gidley, Roberts, Austin, Widdop and now Williams. It's so important to keep him around for the long term because we haven't had that since Briers. And since he's a marque we could pay him NRL money without it being a problem for the salary cap. And not only is that important for us, but the English game as well. If we can at least retain our own best players it allows us to keep our value. Lomax at Saints is a great example, he could have easily been paid big money from an NRL club to go over there but even though he's a pain in the backside for us, it's great that we have that kind of quality in our game.

I have no doubts that if we are talking to Drinkwater, we'll get that move done ,even with the current reported issues. But, if we don't, I'll back Leon Hayes to the hilt at #7. But I could understand if we go with Ratchford at #7, for Minikin to take his centre spot.

Surely that would have been the option he would have taken when he came back from the NRL?
