Had it just read Roosters sign Drew Hutchison, outside of Easts fans nobody would have read the second line. Only the Dragons fans knew much about him. Still I hope he thrives in our system. Another Matto size half in town.
    A mate who supports the Dragons remembers him and was like 'yeah he's pretty ordinary ay'.

    "On 8 July 2015, he captained the New South Wales under-20s team."

    Leadership's good to have. Given he's from the Gong (like Hastings) and has had a tougher time making it to first grade I wonder if he's the dude who was always ahead of Hastings in the pecking order down the Gong?

    His looks remind me of Ash Taylor... big boofie half with a bit of a baby face.

    Lets be serious though, we arent replacing Cronk long term with a player that was discarded to super league. However he could do a job for us with injuries etc which is obviously what he was signed for
    Yep it sounds a bit like the story being run that 'the Roosters have snapped up Omar Slime-Ankle to replace RTS'. Never played a game of NRL (but got FB of the year in reserve grade)...

    Unless some miracle transformation has occurred I agree with the first few posts, he doesn’t look a long term Cronk replacement.
