What is the game’s greatest fullback like as a roommate?
Will Chambers is one of the few people who could answer that question and he did so with a simple description – neat.
“I lived with Coops, he was neat and Billy and Coops lived together before me,” Chambers said.
“Bill is very tidy, very relaxed and loves reading about his horses. He said he is going to start up a stud farm when he finishes so he is always reading about them.
“He is very much a family man, always Facetiming his family. He’s a good roomie, he’s pretty chilled so it’s cruisy.”
Chambers, along with his Storm teammates, will be out to ensure Slater’s 300-game milestone on Saturday night is one to remember.
In order to do so they will need to overcome a Wests Tigers outfit high on confidence following their Round 1 win over the Sydney Roosters.
The so called ‘experts’ gave Ivan Cleary’s men little chance of upsetting the highly fancied Roosters however Chambers believed any early season predictions should be taken with a grain of salt.
“They’ve obviously trained really hard and trained well all pre-season. They are a good side, a strong defensive side and they score points as well,” Chambers said.
“It is hard to get the underdog tag in Round 1, that is pretty unfair on them, everyone is on an even playing field at the start.
“Because of the Roosters’ star-studded line-up everyone wrote the Tigers off but they are a good side, the bought well and it will be a tough game tomorrow night.”
Kick-off on Saturday night will be at 7.30pm at AAMI Park with Storm fans urged to get along to celebrate Billy Slater’s 300th NRL game.
