Sweet, on both accounts, Likiliki's debuting & Jerome's gone (If Only For A Week), I hope Likiliki's the bold & brash type, not the shy guy type. I wanna see another 2 try debut like Mr. Locke managed.

Personally I'm just hoping Hayne doesn't maul him and ruin his confidence. Anything on top of that will be a bonus!

Well done Suiatonga. How far has he come? Seriously, round 1 last NYC, he has a couple of "WTF" moments with some offloads that weren't on that cost the Warriors badly, and he hardly appeared after that. Now look at him, dominating NYC and now in first grade. Well done!

Good on the young lad.

He - like Locke was - would be on a casual glance be the highest on the list of "u20s who deserve a shot in First Grade" on this site. Hope he has a good one.

How many newbies is this now, though?
Likiliki, Locke, Heremeia, Brown, Ah Mau, John, Ta'ai...7 by my count. And 5 of those are in the 17 for tonight. Wonder how many will kick on next year and beyond - Ah Mau might but not with us...

Can't say Ivan doesn't give the young folk a shot.

BTW Huge call to suggest Ropo ask for his release now....

You do know there's such a thing as Fan's Curse, don't ya? :p

O'Regan would be another one, and injury was the only thing keeping Taylor out. On top of that Packer and Matulino are both young enough for NYC.

Haynes fullback, so hopefully Hayne will have to try tackle him a few times throughout the match ;)

He is being marked by Inu, assuming Moon stays on the left.

Likiliki getting named has made tonight's game much more anticipating.

An O'Regan/Lillyman swap would seal the deal.

And if he has a bad game are you going to bow down, and admit being wrong, to all the people who had his long-term welfare in mind? ;)

I'd be nothing less than stoked. Although Lillyman has been playing well of late, O'Regan playing, as well as Likiliki, would make me a very happy man.

nope never back down , never say sorry ..its a sign of weakness : John Wayne .... :cool:

he wont fail because i believe in his ability and he cant do any worse than ropo or krusty ah van have done for us this year ..

i honestly believe he has the x factor that locke has and that he will win alot more games for us than he will lose for us. ive watched almost every nyc game this year and he has been without a doubt the the most improved warrior by far , and most probably the form centre in the entire comp in my opinion ....
