    @Thornborough92 calm down mate

    It's no big deal whether you're right or wrong, Plenty of people have been wrong in this place over they last decade when it comes to signings

    Let's all just sit back and wait, Whatever happens happens :)

    I'm honestly not fussed about Hunt, but Napa is a big fish and it could very well happen.

    A lot of journos or people in the know keep saying Taupau to Roosters which could seal the Napa move to us, time will tell.

    I believe the Hunt rumour because it’s already been well publicised and where there’s smoke... on the subject of Napa however I’d be putting that to bed. That boat sailed a year ago when we were rejected by him to bring him for a look around.

    Toohey said today on twitter that no offer has been made to Hunt. The deal is a long way from done.

    Im not to fussed either way on him. Imo he would be good backup but not much else.

    Refs have killed us not that we'd have won anyway.

    Scored a try and ran over 170m. Leading fantasy point score for Storm. Didn’t watch the game but sounds as though he went ok.

    Drinkwater was good. Very energetic player. Looked alot like Connor Watson style player.
    Would be a very handy buy.

    I can see why Brown was keen on him, he played very well.

    Shame we missed out on him

    For a guy that plays mostly half he was everywhere at fullback. I seen 1 error from him but other then that he had a great debut. Got monstered a lot but kept on getting up. Tough kid.

    Watched the game, this kid is made for first grade. Fearless, seemed to take 20 minutes to get in to the game but from there he took off. Denied a try in the first half, scored a great one in the second.

    Going to be class.

    Drinkwater reminded me of a better skilled Jake Mamo,
    Energizer bunny and very elusive.

    Pretty sure he has played predominantly at fullback in the Q-Cup this year.

    He would have fitted in perfectly for us, could have played 5/8 or fullback depending on what they’re doing with KP. With Watson moving to 9

    Oh well what a shame
