    We need to focus our resources in the middle so with Harris and Mannering as settled 80 min backrowers i went with a more middle rotated bench with Roache on for Luke and backs injury cover. Looking for that power and energy from the bench players. Green is all class. Liked him since i saw him playing for Wigan while i was stalking Sam Tomkins before he came here. Green has a slick passing game and his kicking game is top class. Has deceptive speed and defend well. He'll be the most underrated player this season but giving him full reigns is the key, Johnson just to float around like a princess is what is best for the "process". Harris and Gelling have experience playing with Green so there would be some good combinations formed. Hiku is safe on the wing. SJ will combine well with Mannering, Beale and Fusitua. Blair, Gavet, Vete, Luke to give some aggression and grubbiness in the middle.
    Roger will shine like usual

    That’s a light front row to start Welly, I still remember how the season kicked off last year with Brisbane (Blair) getting driven back almost into the in goal on tackle one of Season 2017.

    I’d get Vetes or Gavets size going for kick off.

    because footy-smarts is a rare thing at the Warriors i think Hiku would be a waste on the wing

    and unfortunately, this is a strategy that doesn't seem to work.

    For those against the 'Ken to the forwards' suggestion, the Broncos are moving Corey Oates to their back row apparently.

    Pretty sure Corey was a second rower put on the wing .
    Bennett used Brett Ploughman the same back in the day

    I'd swap out Lino for Lisone, Lisone has way better kicking skills

    Stalefish540 6/7 away wins, who are these jokers??

    Thats pretty much what I have, I think you may find Sao will beat Satae for the bench spot just due to experience/motor.
