FINALLY!! CNK ftw!

Really hope he can keep his spot in the squad and debut this week. Can't wait to see how he goes in first grade.

Big ups to the coaching staff for picking him rather than going for a safer option. It would have been easy to go with Allwood at left center to keep familiar combinations, especially with the shorter turnaround.

I'd like to see him sniff around the ruck a little for offloads or quick ptbs... suits his style more than taking a one-out hit up.

Really pumped for the game this weekend, let's gone!

Been following the ISP closely over the last couple of seasons in the hopes of seeing a player put his hand up to play first grade and CNK has certainly been doing that on a consistent basis, he just needs to play his natural game and he'll go well.

I would be more than happy for kata to sit out for a few weeks. He hasn't done anything of note to bring him straight back into the team if this young guy holds his own.

Fusitua was pretty underwhelming at centre earlier in the season as well and you could make a case that despite his talent his t best position is still wing atm. Will be interesting to see if Foran can get some more out of him at centre
