Rapana was great but I think there were a few better than him, Manu and Johnson in particular, DWZ very good too.

Just massively cheat the cap and sign both for 5 years. What's the worst that could happen.

I think we have to give him the benefit of the doubt. The Warriors is probably the toughest gig in the NRL for a rookie head coach and being kept on by his replacement is probably a good sign.

Of the players available, either 1. Rapana 6. Wighton 7. Sezer 9. Hodgson or 2. Cotric 6. Wighton 7. Sezer 9. Hodgson are probably the best options.

I suppose he does what Wighton would do at 5/8 whilst being able to keep jack at fullback(defend, run, limited Kicking etc)
