General YOUR 2023 WARRIORS TEAM

Just wondering how everyone is thinking the 2023 Squad will look come round 1.
Our roster I guess is pretty settled and I'd hazard a guess that recruitment is fairly done save a few minor changes.
Obviously we are a long way off. But I just wanted to get the ball rolling.

How I think we'll look.

1.CNK
2.Kosi
3.Montoya
4.Vailea/Berry
5.Dallin Watene-Zelezniak

6.TMM
7.Shaun Johnson

8.Addin Fonua-Blake
9.Egan
10.Tohu Harris
11.Barnett
12.Niukore
13.Jazz

14.Walker
15.Curren
16.Bunty
Toughest pick
17.?

I got
1. metcalf

3. vailea
4. cnk
5. montoya
6. tmm
7. Shaun Johnson

8. Addin Fonua-Blake

10. Tohu Harris
11. barnett
12. niukore
13. barnett

14. walker
15. ale
16. afoa
17. tevaga
 
These teams really highlight how bad we need another prop- Tohu Harris is one of the best 13s in the world and has to play there imo.
I won’t put a team out there yet because I’m still expecting a bit of movement but if webby is planning to play a similar style to the panthers Tohu Harris at 13 and cnk at 1 are certainties.
I’d love to have metcalf in the team but I think the way things have unfolded he might have to bide his time.
 
Similar to yours AlexM;

CNK
Dallin Watene-Zelezniak
Vailea
Montoya
Kosi
TMM
Johnson
Addin Fonua-Blake
Egan
Harris (New signing incoming surely)
Barnett
Curran
Niukore

Walker
Afoa
Tevaga
Ale

Ale's spot should be the development spot, should always be looking to develop young talent. Ale, Frei, Kepu's etc. Just don't see the point in playing Ben Murdoch-Masila, unless he can have a massive off season and get fit.

Missing a starting front rower for sure. I also think CNK is our best fullback option currently, so would play him there. Really hope Berry can grab that 4 jersey, I think he still has NRL standard in him.
 
Luke Metcalf/Charnze Nicole-Klokstad
Marcelo Montoya
Viliame Vailea
Jesse Arthers
Dallin-Watene-Zelezniak
Te-Maire Martin
Shaun Johnson
Robbie Mulhern
Wade Egan
Addin Fonua-Blake
Mitch Barnett
Josh Curran
Tohu Harris

Dylan Walker
Tom Ale
Bunty Afoa
Marata Niukore


Charnze has been poor this year, hasn’t looked the same since his long term neck injury. But he’s a good player better than our whole backline( besides Vailea’s potential)And he’ll come good after pre season( he’s only 27).

Still need 2 props maybe look to the super league
 
Gotta laugh at everyone suggesting CNK is washed up. The guys only 27, coming off a couple of injury plagued seasons. Also been away from his kids. Give him an offseason and then lets judge.

I think there are at least three positions that he can stake a claim to. The injuries are a concern though especially as he was no speedster to begin with. Savage who is keeping him out isn’t an elite fullback either.

He seems like a hard worker and should be a good addition attitude wise to the club. I’m just not sure that we have the personnel to play a workhorse with limited playmaking skills over players with more ball playing skills (Martin) or speed (Metcalf).

He is solid positionally , always carts the balls back well. We have TMM, Johnson and Harris controlling the good ball set anyway.
I think he's what we need.
