I see Tavita out for a few weeks, good for two reasons.
1 Paul Turner my man gets his second start.
2 Now there is absolutely no confusion over who's team it is this week, nikorima being the most senior half has full leadership over Paul turner so needs to step up. This is where we find out about nikorima going forward, can't see the Raiders forwards dominating the warriors (so no excuse kodi).
No. We know what Payten is like as a coach - he makes players accountable. Don’t think he subscribes to tin foil hat theories.Anyone else think Paytens public criticism of Taumalolo last week is a way to get him to drop lip and try to get out of his contract. Over 1mil a year for even the best prop/lock is a bit too much.
