Was the right decision to put Tuaupiki in at fb if the philosophy is to keep specialists into their roles. So Te Maire Martin is clearly viewed as a half and not at all fb cover. Barnett looks semi mouthwatering on the edge.
Will be interesting to see how Tuaupiki goes. Hope his fitness is upto it. He looked totally thrashed in the trials but that is to be expected as the first hit out. Seems to try harder to be in support of the ball carrier than some of our Warriors fbs in the past so looking forward to see how he goes.
Is Luki likely back for the Cows? Seems to be in the top 18. Their backrow will drill through all the holes in our team. Hope im wrong, but i fear this will be a very long game for Warriors fans.
