Hi mate, my hosting platform Buzzsprout has been under a massive DDoS attack for the last day and that’s been causing them service issues. Seems to be ok now though? If it goes down again just try back a bit later, they should be on top of it soon.Can't believe I got up extra early this morning for a bad link Fonzie please fix your podcast I'm having withdrawals
Thanks mate. My take on Aitken is influenced by my mate Deano (who was on the pod last year) - he's a Dragons tragic who has watched Aitken closely for years, and just doesn't rate his passing game. I hope he's wrong!Really enjoyed that, you have put some thought into it and presented your views in a clear way. One comment I have is that Aitken is a quality player, he has been an NRL Centre for 5-6 years now so should be able to put a man away. If he does, or if Perham is at Centre then both sides have distribution.
Good point about Fusitua, I overlooked him. He's played there before and done ok. I could be wrong, but I just don't see him having the defensive organisation skills to do the job. The fact that he's one of our longest serving players but isn't in the leadership group says something I think.Great one mate, couldn’t agree more on everything you said. One more option for RTS replacement perhaps Fusitua? Similar build and skill set to Manu. I’m with you in the optimism and feel like a big season from Nikorima, looks close to RTS and I think the potential for much of the team realising this could be the last time they play with him could be huge.
Agree with that. As you said in your podcast, we shouldn’t be relying on the back three for early hit ups in our sets now. If Fusitua doesn’t have a good season, could be time to promote or look for a bit more speed out on his wing. If he’s with Hiku, hopefully 2018 Fusitua. With Hiku potentially not around after this season could be a whole new centre/wing combo.Good point about Fusitua, I overlooked him. He's played there before and done ok.

Thanks mate, and you summed up my take on RTS perfectlyHi Fonzi, really appreciate your efforts and insights. Looking forward to this season like no others. On RTS I`ve no hard feelings. He`s served his time with distinction and given proper notice. Finishing on a high ideally- such is the nature of NRL and player rotations over short careers.
I enjoy it mate, podcasting about the Warriors is part of bringing some balance into things. I can see top 6Thanks Fonzie well done.
A bit of luck top 6 this year depends on how some critical players kick on.
I am hoping Roger goes out in style.
Don't put undue pressure on yourself to pump out the podcasts remember the balance of life.
