    Haven't seen Drinkwater play (don't know much about him), but, Hunt would be a good pick up.

    I have not seen him play either just did a quick search on him. He is playing for easts in the qld cup position listed as five-eight but has played at fullback every game this year,been the best on field the last 4 games or so. Has 11 tries 12 try assists and 12 linebreak assists for the season averaging 140m a game.Only young 21 I think, was a junior kangaroo. Sounds like would be a good depth signing .

    I think I was impressed with the other Drinkwater - the one that plays for Catalans now. Not sure if I've seen this one.
    Most of the Drinkwater clan play union in Newcastle.

    He confirmed the Knights are in talks with Souths centre Hymel Hunt and Melbourne Storm utility Scott Drinkwater, who can play fullback or in the halves.

    I don't know much about these 2 are they any good.. Hunt has some size about him at 6'3" and 99kg /
    Eddrick Lee 196cm 6'5" , 100kg …..
    Jesse Ramion , 184cm 6'0" , 98kg...
    Tautau Moga , 194cm 6'4" , 109kg …
    Skd , 194cm 6'4" , 104kg
    Cory Denniss , 193cm 6'3" , 99kg
    Add
    Hymel Hunt 193cm 6'3" and 99kg..
    Getting up there in size in the backs .
    Ramiens the smallest of this lot but is playing bloody good footy so who cares .

    Hunt is a bit of a journeyman even though he's only in his mid 20s. Not as good as Ramien/skd/fit moga in the centres, depth signing.

    Like I always say we need players for NSW cup too, and atleast Hunt would be a decent enough backup for our top squad and come cheap.

    Hymel Hunt looked pretty good against Melbourne last night.
    A try, 100m & no missed tackles.

    Hope we get him, less Rossdawg the better next year.

    1. Ponga.
    2. Lee.
    3. Moga/Hunt/Sione.
    4. Ramien.
    5. SKD

    Makes me very happy.

    Keep Sio as a backup, he'll sign for a pie and chips.

    It will be great to have a backline that is safe in defence and is good in attack. I can’t remember the last time I could say that.

    Taking the family to that match, expecting a thrashing of epic proportions.

    Take it or leave it, but hymel Hunt has accepted a deal and will be a knight in 2019. Not entirely sure of price or length but he has signed on.

    Lee Ross sio Dennis hunt all to fight out one wing spot as long as moga returns to form.
    Good for depth

    I can't see Dennis staying or us matching any offers of his if he is testing his value on the open market...
