As several posters have said - Jackson Hastings is worth a look. Another good performance yesterday and he has shown that he can come over here and do the business even if it's only in the short term so far.

I haven't seen anything of Hastings so I'll reserve judgement to those who have.
I just think the halves need to have balance, you need an organiser and a bit of a maverick. I think with George Williams we have the maverick and this year we've struggled for the organiser (Tommy has made a massive difference since switching back to 7), on that basis I would be seriously looking at Drinkwater, he has himself stated he likes to boss a team around the park.

I've seen him play a couple of times over here and he looks a class act, big lad for an half back as well. Better option than a short-term loan agreement for Lam in my view.

Agreed,i think the side needs a decent and proven back rather than another untried youngster.

What about Hampshire? He's not agreed a new deal with Wakefield, according to the league Express. He, Rocky, has come on since he left the Warriors, Which I think was a bad idea. Would be nice to see him partnering George again.

Surely that ship has sailed hasn’t it?

I think Hampshire is to much off the cuff, just like Williams. When he plays for Wakey he's trying to take the line on. We need an organiser and someone to help Williams.
