Is Ligi Sao a fantasy trap? He played big minutes in the trial, or is he holding the lock spot off Paasi/Mannering..

No one should be surprised really with Kata and Ken. If they don't perform, kick their arses out of the side for good. They got enough chances last year IMO, especially holding out guys like Ashyford and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad who have out performed them time after time.

Vete must be injured. Good on Papalii, I think he's too green and small, hope he proves me wrong.
I am surprised with Kata/Ken - i thought they had their chances last year and it was them Kearney was referring to in the "they weren't really up to NRL level" so who was he actually alluding too? U can't fault Maumalo for trying but he has feet for hands and don't get me started on Kata - i really thought that these two would be reserve graders this year. :-(

How Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad or Ayshford didn't nab one of those spots is dumbfounding.

Consider you have Gerard Beale coming back soon who is ahead of all of them in my book. I'm really disappointed because I expect them at some point in the game to let Souths off the hook

So does this mean my hopes of one of either Chris Satae or Pat Sipley jumping out of the pack to become a starting prop are all but over and they are more likely to play a handful of FG games between them this season?

This is a really good point

Angus Chrichton claimed him as a bitch last time they played. I reckon he will be after him again.
Probably but we have the same old problem of poor meters in the pack....one of the things I've had to adjust to about our recruitment and development is that we don't know how to make Props grow to their peak....if you look at the Warriors staffers Wiki is who we rely on for expertise there.....and he is a blown up cruiser weight....a former center.....Jerry Seuseu should have been the guy that teaches young huge humans how to use their size in the way he did.....but I suspect just like Dean Bell who was our greatest center....they have not been engaged to teach or have nfi on how to teach the do as I did.

I dont think many of us have inflated hopes for this year and Mannering might not be here next year so gettting used to not having him might be better for us in the long run.
Why on earth do Ken and Kata keep getting picked?? Possibly the worst left edge in the NRL.
Ken - Yardage. Where else do we get it from? Watch the trials, the only time we dominate in attack is when Ken gets us on the front foot. Shouldnt be that way but thats what we have.

Kata - his defence and hope that he finds 2016 form on attack I am guessing.

It's amazing the lack of comment in game day threads when Ken stepped two players and set up a roll on that we scored off.

I hate relying on wingers for yardage but we barely got any without Ken who costs half the salary of a prop who makes the ground he does over and over.

I guess I'd like to see him be that Manu to the forwards we never saw ...if his agent had any brains they'd offer him to a club that could make a prop of him....those props earn a million and never have to difuse tackle 5 bombs.

Lisone ,

Hope he finds consistency and makes an impact this year.
Lost faith in him last year with his erratic form.

Must train hard to get named.
I suspect the only reason he is on death row and not being buried in an unmarked is that Kearney thinks he can make him like him....talent that can be part of the attack ala SK Jones....the promised change of style...


Hope not....coz that would be fool hardy....kearney was not a brain snap offloader....his ability to free a ball looked like it was in slow motion.
