    So its TLW this year?

    Pretty sure it officially changed last year when the NRL took control of announcing team lists. Supposedly everyone has to have them in by 5pm Tuesday (NSW time) and aren't allowed to announce till NRL announce all teams at once, but some usually leak via twitter before hand

I can see the Titans doing a lot of defence so both Taia & McQueen could get good tackle counts with 40+ tackles easily a game. With McQueen being 52k cheaper he could be a great pod. Thoughts.

    Taia i think could go very well, he was brilliant for Catalans and has the attacking game where he could bust out some half decent scores but he is priced awkwardly, you can get Bryce for the same $$$

    Great side Shanbon. I like the W. Graham & Koroisau picks but aren't you worried about Koroisau's minutes with Parcell there. Also who's CWN.

    great hooking combo

    Woods is a great pick, nothing needs to be said about Fifita mate. If Lawrence is named he is in my team
    Like the Graham pick, could be a POD to start the season, Bhana a smokie to get on that knights bench
    Not sure on Korisau mate, if he is named in the half will you still pick him or is that based on him being named at HK?
    Nice back line and something have been tinkering with dropping my 3rd mid ranger for a cheapie to strenghen in the pack

    good team Shanbon, would prefer JRey over koroisau i think the extra $40k could be usefull as well mate

    Korisau is in my team because i think he'll be an 80min hooker, not sure Parcell will be on the bench he is injury cover i reckon. If im wrong he is any easy swap before round 1 though.

    When he starts at hooker and plays more then 60min he avgs 52.

    CWN is that big Melbourne frontrower played a couple of times last year, he is really just a place holder until someone appears at a rookie price likely to be in a 17, same for a few guys like Bhana

    Anyone concerned that the tension between Griffen & Segeyaro may effect his performance/minutes ?

    This is from the Lurker. Not sure if its BS??? I always thought Seggy was quite a humble switched on type of guy, so not sure where this has come from??? Anyway its info floating around so make what you will of it

    Tension at the foot of the mountains

    It’s been a long, hot summer out Penrith way and I’m hearing there has been more than a touch of tension in the ranks of new coach Anthony Griffin.


    One player who has particularly ruffled Griffin’s feathers is classy hooker James Segayaro, who only last week became an Australian citizen.

    But Griffin hasn’t been happy with the former Cowboy star’s application to training and off field behaviour and the pair have had words more than once.

    I’m also hearing several team-mates have tried to pull Segayaro into line and get his head back in the right space.

    It has been a rocky start between the coach and star playmaker - but it’s also fixable and the problem surfaced early enough in the year to be resolved by kickoff time.

    I wasnt as ive had him the last few years and ive had enough of his suspensions, penalties and job sharing. Im hearing real positive signs about the culture at the warriors this year and what Jim Doyle is trying to implement within the playing group......and yes he is also "training the house down".He is going over there as one of the leaders and with the culture they are trying to create at the club he may be a great pickup if he just changes a few things in his game and of course if he gets 80? Ive been burnt by him, so im weary but he has come back into my calculations. Do people think he will play 80?

    Looked at him as a bit of a POD but his suspensipn history as well as adjusting to a new team led me think it was just easier to pay the extra cash and get someone more reliable

    Ive heard that. Maybe the lurker is posting this BS so he can get Seggy ownership under 10percent so hes a POD for his own team

    I assume Leulaui will be on the bench, although that's been debated a lot around the traps. Unless Lolohea ends up as the bench utility with the rationale that Robson moves to hooker if Luke gets injured during a game.

    Exactly. Plenty of options there to make it a bit of a lottery. Team lists will make it a little clearer but i cant see him playing 80. Especially from the get go.
