Probably due his own thread since LU have a chad thread ( never participated in LU prefer to read their stuff , different reserved style to me own Hyperbole).

Playing in the NSW cup GF this weekend , Opinions are certainly split.

In the LU thread the vast Majority see him as a depth signing and most see him behind Tuimavave at that.

Had a semi against Manly of course , got quite harsh reviews for an average showing in the fastest NRL game to date with an odd 2nd fiddle halves partner.

Most WarriorS dot com fans with a Joint Union and League background rate the Kicking Game Chad has as a place to start to set our spine right for 2014.

I've got little to no Union Knowledge but I understand full well why that game and League use tactical kickers on the fifth tackle.

People talk about good go forward and it's the one thing we all agree on.

But where the opposition receives the ball can be equally determined by a deft kicker ( more easily off good go forward , but experts like Fittler Smith and Cronk will pop 40/20's from a position of 'being on the back foot ' )

For mine Townsend being a kicking half gives him the one League skill this team misses most.

Plenty of amazing runners.
