With Vete having a NRL contract for next year, is it worth giving him so game time in the Vulcans to see how he performs against more seasoned players?

Under that scenario, I wonder if we'll see the "drop Friend, Tommy Gun to hooker, Locke to 6" theory unfold. While waiting for Tomkins to arrive, Fish could hold fullback and Low Mappy take right wing.if and when we are mathematically out of contention for the Top 8

I'm a Abraham Papalii fan, he is an absolute beast. Started last week and he took his oppurtunity with boths hands. Apparently he was a centre up until 2 seasons ago, and he is probably 6'5, 110kg! I hope he plays out the rest of the year with the juniors and the Warriors keep him for next year. I think he might almost be 20.
Yeah, if we are going to miss the 8 I would prefer it happen sooner rather than later so we can experiment with a team like: (for example)
14 Lousi / Peyroux / Palavi rotating
15 Matagi / Gubb / Ikahihifo rotating
Played Premier footy for Mangere East in 2012, after he was dropped from 20's; 1st game was against Otara and Albie got hammered that day - fittest forward on the paddock though,so we played him at center, disaster lol
I like Vete. From the few interviews I have seen he sounds modest and intelligent. On top of that he has size and makes an impact on the field.
