    Is Manu incapable of playing right wing? He should be outside Fus.

    Totally wasted on the left side now.

    Some posters think he is incapable of playing left wing.

    Wouldn’t complain if its true.

    Have some sympathy for Lolohea falling over in the wet and letting in a try, on the other hand he can be a defensive liability in any conditions.

    His finishing is overlooked though, he rarely butchers a chance, don’t blame him for the grubbers against the knights, he was out of room.

    Dragons away next week and titans at home after that. Not exactly high profile pressure cooker games for le foz. Both winnable.

    Bluey played him on the right and it was terrible.

    True. Forgot about that. '12/13/14 is all one horrible blur. I do recall him wearing the 2 jersey at least once though.

    No tries scored out wide this weekend then.

    The longest-serving current Vodafone Warriors Simon Mannering and Manu Vatuvei will be centre stage for Friday night’s historic third-round NRL clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs under Forsyth Barr Stadium’s roof in Dunedin (8.00pm kick-off).

    The relentless Mannering (30) will make his 261st career appearance to draw level with the great Stacey Jones – and current assistant coach – for the most games for the club.

    And Vatuvei (31), the club’s try-scoring record holder, was today named to make his first NRL appearance of the season – and the 226th of his career – after turning out in the Intrust Super Premiership in the first two rounds this year.


    With Mannering on the cusp of the mark for most appearances it means two of Jones’ records are set to bettered in the space of two weeks (Shaun Johnson topping Jones’ all-time points-scoring record of 674 with his 56th career try against Melbourne last week).

    “I can’t say enough about Simon. He represents everything we want this club to be,” said Kearney.

    “It’s a wonderful achievement for him to play that many games and throughout he has consistently maintained the highest standards. You could count on half a hand the number of games he hasn’t been up to his usual level.

    “Manu has played really well in his two games in the ISP after missing the trials and he’ll provide us with the valuable experience we need.”

    Kearney has significantly boosted the experience factor in the starting line-up for the trip south.

    As well as Vatuvei, front rower Jacob Lillyman has been brought into the run-on side as has seasoned second rower Bodene Thompson; they were both used from the bench in the opening two rounds against Newcastle and Melbourne.

    Vatuvei, Lillyman and Thompson provide an injection of more than 470 NRL games between them for this week’s starting line-up as the Vodafone Warriors seek to rebound from last Friday night’s 10-26 loss to Melbourne at a sodden Mount Smart Stadium.

    It means the Vodafone Warriors’ regular starting back row combination since 2015 – Mannering, Thompson and Ryan Hoffman – is reunited for the first time this year while Vatuvei’s inclusion enables Kearney to field two monster wings with Vatuvei on the left and Ken Maumalo shifting to the right. The pair were used in tandem several times in the latter part of the 2016 season. Charlie Gubb and Bunty Afoa move to an extended bench.

    The Bulldogs’ ‘home’ game – on St Patrick’s Day but in the ‘Edinburgh of the south’ – is the first NRL competition match to be played in the southern city.

    The Vodafone Warriors played preseason trials there in 2013 and 2014 beating Brisbane both times when new head coach Stephen Kearney was on the Broncos’ staff.

    The Bulldogs, coming off season-opening losses to Melbourne (6-12) and the Sydney Roosters (24-28), are among the Vodafone Warriors’ most challenging opponents.

    The ledger is 19-13 in Canterbury-Bankstown’s favour with two draws while the away record favours the Bulldogs 9-5 with two draws. The Vodafone Warriors’ 24-20 win against them in Wellington last year is their only success in the last six encounters since 2011.

    I'd have gone 2: Fusitua 3: Ayshford but don't have any real complaints. Clark/Lino battling for bench hooker spot?

    No surprises as far as I'm concerned about Ken & Manu on the wings. In fact, it's only recently dawned on me why the Warriors persist with forwards on the wings. It's because our forward pack is so ineffective.

    Suprises me that I am thinking that having Manu back is a good thing. Being dropped will never resolve Manus deficiencies, but just maybe will drive his his hunger and reignite the spark that has been missing from his game. Good luck son.

    You know, looking at that side... when we get Foz, Mutts and Roache back that's a pretty formidable looking 17.

    You swap Roache for Clark, which is definitely an upgrade, Nate is lethal around the ruck, adds so much spark to our play. Then you swap Foz for Ata, and as good as Ata has been - he is just a rookie, and while he's happy to be playing well and making the team, Foran will demand excellence from those around him. This is probably the biggest oversight of those calling for Ata to play ahead of Foran, to say nothing of the fact that Kieran is a world class half. And finally, perhaps the biggest upgrade, slot in Mutts for Gubb, and all of a sudden, given the form of Bunty and the ever presence of Sams aggression and passion, and that's a scary looking bench. Only weakness is the wings, but I can live with that, I guess.

    Bulldogs will be frothing at the chance to bomb to either Ken or Manu that they'll just end up confused and kick it straight to RTS.

    Kearney you M A D M A N.
