lance hohaia will be out this week. his 2 tries were nothing special and the warriors are going up against the Storm who are the best team in the comp, and u don't want to have Hohaia playing centre when he isn't a centre. Cleary knows this so hohaia out of team completely,Tony martin back at centre. Koopu and fien will be Back. So BYE BYE hohaia,vuna,lauaki.

Lauaki actually offers something a little different than many of the other Warriors. I'd be inclined to keep him in the mix for the remainder of the year.

I'd keep Lauaki in the mix, for sure. Not certain about Hohaia, though - it was good to see him back, but I'd wait to see the injury updates before making a decision.

Wow batz, hohaia played 'great' against a TERRIBLE cowboys outfit, in drizzly, cold Auckland. Daniel Spencer got it just right, it's bye bye Lance..he isn't a centre and he never will be.

It's pretty ridiculous, someone who has been around for 4-5 years now plays an OK game out of position and suddenly everyone thinks he's the answer to all the warriors problems.

Despite Hohaia's form i think he will unfortunatley have to be the one to make way for fien. I think lauki will stay in the side and once again unfortunatley rapira will gey dropped for koopu. And martin back in for vuna.

That is if all those players are fit from there injuries this week.

even though i think you are a bit weird spencer u are right about hohaia. he is all talent but he aint no centre. i would still like to see him in the team. he would offer a world more at standoff than ropati does, who pretty much plays like a 4th backrower.

i am becoming a huge fan of lauaki. he will backup this week for sure.

do u know how old lance hohaia is?? he might have been around since '02 but he is only 23 years old (same ages as ravs).

let me ask you something. try and get hold of the warriors success rate playing with and without lance hohaia this season.

i aint saying he is the answer the all the warriors problems. BUT he is the answer to the warriors halves problem, and that being jerome ropati.

ummm lets see ,,,who would i have in my team lance or martin ?
id take lance any day of the week , and hes probably faster than
martin as well ....... he offers more options and can play centre , 5/8 halfback or hooker.....and he kicks goals ....

Martin is one of the worest centers running around. The only reason he is picked is due to his kicking!

Now if lance can kick i can see no reason for martin to be in the side.

wow toilet duck you know nothing about league or the warriors obviously. Hohaia made his debut at center for the warriors. So that makes two NRL coaches that think he can play center against you and daniel spencer.

As for Luaki.....Skinny Ravs is a better forward than him. I wouldn't let him run the water for real league players if i was the coach.

Skinny, you want to play prop for my team?:)

Good on ya bro, Martin offers nothing, no attack & farcical defence. If Clearys obsessed with Ropati at 5/8 at least having Hohaia in the side we have a primary kicker besides ravs, ravs gets thrown the ball too late, making some of his kicks crap, he needs help. I have critised Hame before but what has he done wrong?? He's been very solid & isn't as boring as some of the other workhorse forwards, he offers a different styl, which we need. He didn't bumble once last night & i'm glad Hames proven me wrong. If Lance ever leaves this team, it will be another star we flicked away again.

Seriously mate what do you have against Lance? Sure it was no spectacular performance but as a sudden fill in he did just fine. Not perfect but ok. I really don't know why you've got this annoying hatred towards him. He is one of my fave players and it's really bad to see you having so much against him without too much reason. Yes I know you've got this fixation with Gatis but geeze cut Lance some slack here!

Yeah, i guess because you say I know nothing Dragon, then I mustn't.

Lance Hohaia is NOT A CENTRE. I never said anything about him in the halves, he is obviously better than Jerome as a 5/8.

So Lance makes his debut at centre, and plays like 2 games there his whole career (I'm sure someone will come and tell me I'm stupid because he's actually played 3 and a half games there or something similar), and suddenly he's a long term option?

And saying that 'two coaches think he can play centre' is just stupid...yes he may have played there, but neither of those coaches kept him there long term did they? That would suggest they think he can fill in when need be..not the other way around, dumbass.

how about you go away toilet duck and learn about league?

Martin is NOT a quality center, he offers nothing in attack and is nothing more than a speed bump in defence. All he brings to the team is finishing and kicking. We can do better than him and we did with Hohaia at center.

He has played center now under two different coaches in the NRL...the toughest league there is.

And yeah, you are stupid.

That doesnt answer him at all...we know Martin is average, that's a given. What you're trying to say is that Lance is our best centre option, and that's bullshit. Jerome should be there, and Hohaia at 5/8.
