    How long is Roache out for? Swap him for Tevaga and that's about my first choice 17.

    Its a disgrace that you would have Bodene on the bench unless of course you see round 3 being his first round back from injury. But really he should be starting.

    That's a big call bro.
    Thompson is close to making the elite backrower club with Mannering.

    Admire the faith in our young charger.
    Has shown signs of your view , not a bad thing if he does though.

    I do like Thompson, just not sure that he has much longer at the club. It seems he needs a massive season (really hope he does) to get a new contract. Bit unsure if he's got that longevity that Mannering has...

    Are you kidding? This whole forum has a cry that all we get are 'tacklebots' then when we finally have a great backrower everyone all of a sudden thinks he's mediocre. The guy is potent and actually digs in unlike Hoff who is a passive player at best.

    I didn't say he's mediocre. I said I like him.

    The fact that his contract hasn't been renewed, says to me that the club are hoping for a big season.

    Which is literally what I just said in my previous post.

    Aussie Media really rating the Warriors Spine, now that Foran has got the Green light.

    Bookies have also slashed the odds for the Warriors to win the Premiership as well.

    I am also a bit of a Bunty Afoa fan.. He is kinda underrated by the opposition and he went really good last year.

    Watch for Bunty to get a "Cult" following this year. Similar to the Tookey mania in 2002.

    That back line is guaranteed..The forward pack is pretty close to what SK will go for, I recon, since the coach is pretty conservative to start with.

    It is a toss of a coin between Afoa and Sipley....I could see Sipley edging Bunty out.

    SK favors a line bending prop off the bench running off a Manu tackle 2 Hit up.....which favors Sipleys chances.

    Off topic but....SK will use Manu big time.

    The issue I have with Tof Sipley in particular is how long can he be effective off the bench. No doubt he is good for a couple of runs but doesn't appear to have a big tank. I hope I am wrong, but is he a stereotypical Warriors player who is good for a highlights reel but crap for a full match replay.

    From last season the two guys who gave me the most hope for the future were Afoa and Tevaga, because of their skill and application on Defence. That is why they make my bench.

    Assuming Lillyman and Vete are the starting Props, That leaves two bench spots. Lisone probably has the inside running on one, leaving a straight head to head with Gubb and the Sipleys. I don't know where Gavet and Sau stand.

    Mate if you posted two seasons ago we should sign the Kiwis spine....you would have been rightfully corrected by the site moderators as a waste of space dreamer who has no clue about the Cap, no clue about Warrior history (paying overseas) no idea about ex Kiwis loving the life in Oz.
    2017 is a freak show.

    Sipleys had such bad luck with Injuries I really doubt we have seen him anywhere near fully fit.
