Re: The Cricket Thread

Devon Conway's effort was as classy(not a word often used to describe T20 innings) a T20 nock as i can remember, really stamped himself as a quality international cricketer last night. you can see why the selectors have chosen him over one of our all time best batsmen and left Ross Taylor out of the...

Re: Harawira-Naera and Horsburgh charged with drink driving

He's gone from one of the best edge forwards in the game to one of the most influential players in the comp in the middle. I prefer the guy that dictates the entire momentum of the game to the guy that makes a few highlight reel plays on the edge(due to lack of ball/opportunities from the halves, no...

Re: New Zealand Warriors 2021

a far better pack this year than the warriors have had for years with Fonua-Blake and BMM joining, although apparently Tohu Harris wants to play in the middle so i'd say you'll se Katoa or Murchie start on the edge. backs are okay, the success of there season will probably come down to whether Harri...

Re: Harawira-Naera and Horsburgh charged with drink driving

The main thing that let him down early on was his lack of discipline. He got more touches in the middle because that's where our game plan is focussed. Remarkably (sarcasm) we've seen the same thing with Tapine and Papalii. Suddenly we have all these quality second rowers looking a million dollars ...

CNK is probably a legitimate wing option also, played pretty much all his first grade games at the warriors there, could take Cotrics spot IF we found a better fullback

Sione Moala is a halback out of the Warriors system, was the junior kiwi's halfback last year and nz under 16's player of the year a couple of years ago, i havent seen anything of him really but he seems highly rated and warriors fans seem a bit disappointed to lose him

I thought Hudson really developed the last month or so, maybe that was due to being in the middle or maybe it was just natural progression and it wouldn't have mattered where he was?

Re: 2020 Finals Week 2 V Roosters: Game Day

some terrrific performances, not only Papali'i and Tapine but Young and CNK were brilliant, Rapana was busted but defended well all game.
one of Cotrics best in a while too and Valemi really good apart from the effort on Manu.

Clearly our best performance of the year, good time for it

Re: Jordan Rapana set to sign new two year Canberra Raiders deal

He's 3 years younger than the morris twins, they've also at times looked finished and on the way out only to bounce back and be very good players in the right system, I'll back Jordan to do the same and still be a good value addition to the squad at the right price.

I think the speed issue would would be sorted out with a change of leadership IMO.
We'd be the quickest side in the comp if our captain put a rocket up a few players, not sure if you'd need to get permission before inserting them though :hmmm

I was pretty keen to try Cotric out at fullback a few years ago, and others said it at the time and they were absolutely right. His lack of sudden agility, speed and ball playing makes for a bad fullback. He's a power power, he's a great winger... might be a great centre, but fullbacck ain't it. ye...
