Last game for the team Mooks built, last chance to see the old-era Warriors play together before the owner burns it down and signs a new coach and squad next year.
It could be a bit sad and sentimental watching this game in some ways. Wondering what could have been if things had gone our way, as the best player we've produced in the modern era carves us up and says "you's got what you's wanted" again, I hate when he does that.
Depends how you look at it. If Tohus losing mobility with age his time on the edge might be over. The plan might be Katoa and Ben Murdoch-Masila on the edges next year, in which case may as well start as we mean to go on.Not saying he's not good, but it weakens our overall team.
I think you're right as to what will happen next year, but Tohu Harris doesn't need time at 13 to gel into the position. Having effective edge backrowers like Tohu Harris and Katoa is such an important part of the game, especially if you have a weak backline like us. Using the likes of Lawton, Murchie, Papali'i makes the edge redundant as theres no threat. As of how the squad is right now, Tohu Harris on the edge is necessary with Lawton and Jazz sharing 13. It's poor coaching otherwise.
