Can't agree with this post moreThat was epic entertainment, Patty Herbert you Maori legend!
Chanel's break near the end was the highlight of my year. Kodi made some clutch plays too, pretty sure he's the brains of the Nikorima whanau, we wait to see what Ash Taylor can do in the trials now, pretty hard to top that effort from both Chanel Harris-Tavita and Kodi.
That Maori forward pack lead by Tapine is fearsome, dominated them all night, this Wiremu Greig kid is the new Beastwood too, good times.
Warriors recruitment targets should be 1. Tapine (new Steve Kearney) 2. Nikora (new Logan Swann) 3. Herbert (new Herbert 2.0) 4. Rapana (new Richie Blackmore who never retires) 5. Greig (new Rusty Packer, not the sharpest tool but he's like an unguided missile on a good day).
I can't remember if he's been playing prop for the Raiders or not. But with the new rules he could suit that position with his leg speed. A reason I'm keen on Pene for us.Joe Tapine has be onnnnnn tonight
Sky has them listed for next week. Looks like on a Sky Select episode. When Vossy mentioned the trials last night I checked the planner and set them all to record.Yes but lets wait till the trials to see how Ash goes.
Fox league 502 will be showing a lot of trial games so we can judge.
Nor sure about Sky Sport Nz.
As for Patty Herbert.
I told you jokers when we let him go.
Sad day as the guy has attitude in spades now his talent has improved.
Warriors loss. Titans gain.
My Game assessment
I’m a massive Fifita fan however there’s no way he’s at that level just yet - unquestionably he has the highest ceiling of his generation of edge forwards however he was absent for way too much of that game.5) David Fifta had me out of my seat. May be the best second rower of this generation.
He was only absent as Tapine winded him with the late shoulder charge and they decided to rest him to ensure no further bruising to his ribs in what was effectively an exhibition game. Had this been a regular season NRL match he would have been back from that hit quite quickly.I’m a massive Fifita fan however there’s no way he’s at that level just yet - unquestionably he has the highest ceiling of his generation of edge forwards however he was absent for way too much of that game.
Real conundrum what to do with him as a Supercoach option this year!
