I think nas will stay being part maori- always seems super proud to pull on the black jersey and he’s the one we really need to keep.
I’m pretty sure NAS stays loyal, Ken will possibly go if it wasn’t for Madge, and Papalii is the toss of a coin. Our biggest need in my opinion is NAS, he’s our most dominant forward, then Papalii who has become a great hard edged forward.
Much as I can’t stand the prick for what he did to Egan, I love this.There's an article from a few years back from NAS saying he would never turn his back on the Kiwi jersey:
You could see how much it means to him when he wore it a few weeks ago.
Can't see Ken cracking the Samoan team. To'o, May, Nofoaluma, Tabuai-Fidow, Taulagi and Suaalii are his competition.I think nas will stay being part maori- always seems super proud to pull on the black jersey and he’s the one we really need to keep.
His cousin ken might go to Samoa since he’s only depth for us.
I think papalii and leota were the only other Samoans from the team that beat Tonga? and while they’re both good players we wouldn’t lose much bringing in the likes of jwh and Riki.
Australias front row depth will be tested if Paulo follows big papa to Samoa.
