Looking at them odds there could be some money to be made backing the outsiders this week IMO.

Looking forward to the Roosters vs Panthers. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck vs Dallin Watene-Zelezniak. These two could potentially be fighting it out for the Kiwis fullback position for the next decade.

Not even close to a competition...Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is a natural fullback, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is an outside back with enough skill to cover the fullback position (like all outside backs should).

Doesn't sound like much of a difference, but it's huge.

Dallin Watene-Zelezniak spent his junior career playing full back. Only reason he's not the fullback all the time for Penrith is because of Moyland. Once Moyland moves into the halves for Penrith Phil Gould had said it will happen. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak will become the permanent full back for Penrith.

Pretty sure Simon Mannering played most of his junior career in the centers, doesn't mean he's a natural in the position.

Cant see Moylan moving from fullback, he's too good and fullback is far to important of a position to play your second stringer in the position...Dallin Watene-Zelezniak isn't even the best fullback in his club side, and he sure as hell isn't as good as Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

They may try Moylan in the halves if they get desperate, but it wont last.

I think Dallin Watene-Zelezniak will make a good fullback but Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has the kiwi spot locked down and playing with luke and Shaun Johnson every week is only going to strengthen his grip on the number 1 jumper.
Dallin Watene-Zelezniak will be in the kiwi mix but he's just gonna have to play where ever they can fit him in.

Exactly.

Why break up, what will in very short time become the best spine in the world? Shaun Johnson, Luke and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck will have their positions locked down, just like the all-conquering Queensland side, and the wealth of talent that will surround them will just have to fit in.

If you read my previous post Phil Gould has stated that eventually Moylan will move into the halves once Soward and Wallace move on.

Right now it's not a contest. But one is 19 the other 22. Whose to now what will happen in the future Roger Tuivasa-Sheck could have injuries lose form. I sure as hope not as a Kiwis and Warriors supporter.

If the Martin to panthers rumour is true Penrith could very well have there own Kiwi spine in the future.

1. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak
6. Moylan/Martin
7. Martin/ZDC
9. Segeyaro/ZDC
14. ZDC/Katoa

Yeah, Shek is a better fullback than Dallin Watene-Zelezniak will ever be, that said, it's great to have Kiwi outside backs like Dallin with enough ability to play fullback if necessary.

Warriors Orange Peeler
Abraham Papali'i and Omar Slaimankhel playing for the Wyong Roos right now. Abe has lost a lot of weight. Scored a good try on the wing. Seems to still like hiding out there...

Taukeiaho is the most damaging Roosters forward. He has all the skills and is a brute.
