Album: Chad Townsend. Can he make first grade ?
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).<br /> <br /> Playing in the NSW cup GF this weekend , Opinions are certainly split.<br /> <br /> In the LU thread the vast Majority see him as a depth signing and most see him behind Tuimavave at that.<br /> <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> People talk about good go forward and it's the one thing we all agree on. <br /> <br /> 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 ' ) <br /> <br /> For mine Townsend being a kicking half gives him the one League skill this team misses most.<br /> <br /> Plenty of amazing runners.
