Pick Your Team 2019 Rnd 15 - Warriors vs Panthers

41096

After the Round 14 game against the Gold Coast Titans at Cbus Super Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 15 game against the Penrith Panthers at Mt Smart Stadium?

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?

Discuss...
 
My Team (as the season is over) but we all know 100% it won't happen as Kearney is 1 dimensional and has zero vision. Green is old and slow, Nikorima a turnstile.. really best used as super sub with tired defence.. Tevaga unlucky as he had a shit game.. tries too hard in his own end..

1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (but tempted to put him in at 5 or elsewhere even 6 as a roving commissioner and swap with Hiku or Fusitua)
2. Perham
3. Herbert
4. Hiku
5. Fusitua
6. Keighran
7. Chanel Harris-Tavita
8. Paasi (the Man!)
9. Lawton
10. Ah Mau
11. Burr
12. Papalii
13. Sao

14. Maumalo (2x 20 min spells in the middle to see how he goes)
15. Pulu
16. Nikorima
17. Frei
 
Been charged.... 1 week suspension.
Why do we not fight these things? Go into the judiciary with video off every similar late charge (including on kickers) and ask why these other players haven't been charged in the same way the Roosters got Napa off for his tackles last season. Funny, that they used his tackle against the Warriors as to why he should have been let off for a similar "head clash" tackle later in the season.

cause we’re wimps?
 
Hopefully this time we don't play 4 guys whose best position is 13 (Blair, Burr, Jazz and Papali'i).
In my opinion Blair and Burr are starting 13's or not in the 17 at all, neither offer impact off the bench and neither are metre eating props.
Papali'i is supposed to be our future 13, but is stuck out of position due to the logjam of players in that position. I'd like to see him play in the 13 jersey with the plan to develop him for the future - and maybe put Pulu on the left edge.
When Jazz is on form he offers something different on attack (but little on D), anytime he's in the 17, it means we have a tiny bench because of his reluctance to cover hooker. If he learnt the trade properly at hooker, it would mean we could have a more balanced bench with 2 props, someone like Sao who can cover the middle or the edge, and a hooker/lock player like Jazz.
Most games this season we've played well until around the 20/25th minute which is roughly when our starting props get subbed, this is when we start to lose the battle up front.
We need to find another Prop - Because Lisone and Satae aren't the answer.
