With the mini tournament coming up in October who is likely to be play, are there any newbies or people we don't know about who are eligible who come under the micrscope?
Will Warbrick must be a chance. Probably my favourite player outside the Warriors this yearUnless its a world cup weird stuff tends to come out of the blue at seasons end regarding player availability. The only other players I can think of outside of those already named in this thread that are maybes for the squad are Isaiah Papalii and Bailey Simonsson.
NAS is only 27. In Prop years they peak at 29. Bromwich is def way to old lolWe don't need the Tongan or Samoan players, Tonga and Samoa need them.
We have plenty of depth of our own. I am glad JWH is not available, too old now, too much trouble. we will need to blood some young Props but, NAS J.B are getting old.
Cant find any info that Marzhew or Isaako have chosen Samoa. Isaako played for Samoa in june 19 to honour his father, but has since then returned to the Kiwis. Marzhew was interview as recently as a few weeks ago and said he would play for either the kiwis or samoa depending on who picks him.CNK
Manu / Reimis Smith
Mulitalo(Isaako has chosen Samoa. Marzhew has also) Warbrick
Dylan / Sj(Altho i think we will rest his troublesome hammy)
Next few years be interesting to see the progress of Valynce Te Whare. Needs to lose that puku, But has plenty potential

Issako pledged his allegiance to Samoa before the last world cup. The League Show with Adam Blair, He asked Marzhew if he wanted to play for the Kiwis. He said at some point he wants too. But instead of playing for Samoa at the end of his career, He wants to play for them now. And then look at pursuing a Kiwis jersey later on.Cant find any info that Marzhew or Isaako have chosen Samoa.

He's been dealing with a high grade MCL injury which put him out for 6 - 8 weeks. Still struggling with it now. He's way to heavy at the mo as well. He may choose to skip the tests anyway and heal.NAS has slowed so much I figured he was older.
He has already peaked, had lots of injuries, is not the line breaking Monster he was. I know that does not apply to other props, but NAS is slowed.
Still have him in my team but, he still can wreak havock.
