    From the looks of things he's being pushed out. Could be wrong but he's been demoted as waterboy for ISP in favour of Cappy...

    Not a chance in hell. Got a huge future in rugby. Could play another 10 games for the ABs then move to France and be set for life...

    I remember he got a job after retiring as part of his contract deal way back. Price was the same.

    When it comes to feeding the family in Tonga it is the best option. It means the Warriors get the leftovers doesn't it?

    Fair to say chasing fringe or first choice All Blacks is a complete waste of resources.

    Only bet would be expired players but again, a rewarding future awaits them in Europe. Either that or go the other extreme and target them at school age...

    ForTheLoveOfGod Warriors Bench Player

    There is a ridiculous amount of talent in the mitre 10 cup. You could sign a killer player not with a super contract from every single union in New Zealand such is the depth of player available to NZ Rugby Union. Warriors have no excuses and should be actively signing 3 - 5 new union players per year for the ISP and culling those are not a cut above. In reality the Warriors have completely balls up their recruitment processes.

    Put it this way, Every single NPC side in NZ has at least 3 Simon Mannerings running around. Thats just a standard NZ rugby backrower there days coming off the bench.

    Never going to happen is it. The Warriors can only sign some 5-7 players to ISP contracts. They are hardly going to waste that on ITM players lol. Cant be that much of a goldmine or the NRL would be littered with ITM converts. Plenty of NRL scouts from other clubs scouring this country...

    You got no idea...

    so after bemoaning our lack of size up front they decide in their wisdom to chase outside backs and a 5/8. Makes sense, maybe Lino will play prop next year

    With over 60 Kiwis in the NRL finals that seems obvious Welly, so WTF are Iro and his team doing?

    mmmmm.... according to selector's list posted in the finals thread, there's 32 players with kiwi connections playing this weekend in the nrl finals. Of those, a number were born outside of NZ or left NZ as children before they were on any club's radar.

    Also, of those 32, two (Harris & Beale) have been recruited to the club for next season.

    But I guess your post is the case of not letting the facts get in the way of a good conspiracy ;)

    Bit of a slight on the Keptin innit.

    The yawnion boys spend half the match lying on the ground or hands on hips watching the kicker line up the 8th penalty of the game.

    Sounds like they follow the same process.

    Iopu Iopu has potential, the 7s team aren't on big money and have skills to go with the motors.

    No conspiracy. I read 30 as 60, you can do that when dementia approaches.

    So now that we know it is 30 Kiwi players in the finals, not the NRL...THE FINALS...I can ask again, WTF are Tony Iro and his team doing? They don't even have to catch a plane here, they can drive away and be home that night if they really need. The approached Blair in Whangarei when he was a teen, he went to Melbourne, Haeawira-Naera and James Fisher-Harris were in the back blocks of the Hokianga but Penrith found them.

    I think it is a fair question to ask except that Blair was on Dean Bell's watch. If I had been able it would have been a question I would have liked to asked Cameron George yesterday.
