Quadja is not in the 30 at the moment - so can't play NRL.

According to folks on here - or have I misunderstood?

Yes but i dont think this article implies this..just how much Quadja has noticed the change since he was last here...and if he continues to play well a full time contract is his goal wether here or somewhere else. ..
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

The problem for Drinkwater is, if another NRL team picks him up they will be a battler as all the big teams have quality establish halves and being a half in a battling side is the hardest gig on the park

Someone mentioned recently that he might go alright at #9. That would be an interesting exercise for him, a kicking #9 at that, if he can handle it...

i know everyone is wet over gamble, but drinkwater has been the standout half so far in isp
Is this the same Drinkwater that couldn't cut it in our garbage team of a few years ago ?
Wet ? . . . haha. Very few of us got any worse than moist.

Would probably find a spot at the dogs in FG, but not sure where else?

He'd have the easiest job for a halfback in that grade than any other halfback in recent memory with the pack that he plays behind. No wonder he looks so good.
He was killing it in ressies before he left Gunners... I couldnt believe we kept JLJ and let him go

Why is Drinkwater here? He left and came back?

Ok, so we have Brooks, Reynolds, Marshall, Tui, Gamble, Godinet.... Why is Drinkwater here?

He has about Zero chances at first grade here and a good chance at Manly, Easts, Bulldogs. Yea sure Follow Hodgson, but why is he here. Surely he wants to play firstgrade.

Halves look good and hodgo a good coach. This team should be one of the main chances this year.
Can't remember a WT or Wests or Balmain squad with this much depth since the Magpies won the club championship in 1991 with all 3 grades making top 5. We had a team which would've challenged for the premiership that year if not for the injuries and we still came 5th from 16 in what was a strong 5 with us Manly and Canberra plus Norths and Penrith.

I wouldn’t doubt he wants one but he may have chosen to go to the place/people he knows. Possibly expecting his chance to come when Marshall retires.

You'd think the Bronx will come knocking sooner or later.
