Etene and Dakohta will be with the Warriors next year I heard, the club rate them that highly, I heard there's some sort of deal being done over the scholarships, so they can attend St Kents and still play for the club.

Etene Nanai will be there 100%. Club will no doubt try accelerate his development. He wont be playing NYC long. Be playing ISP once he's bulked up and up to speed...

NYC Awards tonight; Chris Sio took out Player of the Year!
Really like that kid. Really good footy head on him, good speed and step. Looks like he's hitting a major growth spurt. Be one to watch for the future...

Ioane - Niko is struggling with weight issues from an injury, he needs a lot of extras in the off season to hit the ground running for pre season IMO. There's some other kids I think will kick on in 2017 that aren't on your list and then the dark horse that comes through the trials.
Thats good news on Etene and Dakohta, they would both obviously be in the starting 13. I wonder what that means for Telea, join a different NYC team or maybe he stays put and Nanai spend half the season in NYC then goes straight to NSW Cup.
Yeah I heard about Ioane-Niko, looked promising last year, hopefully overcomes those issues for next year but I'm not too hopeful if he couldn't get a game this entire season.

Also, which other players do you think will kick on next year? and who do you rate coming through?

So is the new Warriors U 20's coach - Spencer Taplin??? That was the talk at the National Competition games on Sunday I heard - stirring the pot cause with the reshuffle , the club might as well roll everyone out for the 2017 positions this week?
