Whare will be in my squad - but Peachey and Hiku will probably start and Waqa Blake and DWZ on the wings. Idris I will gamble on if starting centre.
I am most interested in peoples starting halves - looks as though we will need two guns. I'm thinking Norman with byes and running the show, then choosing 1 out of Cleary, DCE, Johnson, Hunt, Pearce, Adam Reynolds and possibly Mitchell Moses will be hard. Leaning towards DCE or Johnson but unsure as they both have new halves partners.
Whare was their no. 1 ctr before his injury & I can see Hiku missing out. Hiku's lazy training attitude might count against him.
This year I'm thinking of starting 3 gun halves. The extra half instead of a second high price hooker. My hookers will be Smith/Cherrington. The 3 halves I'm keen on are SJ/Pearce/Cleary although that'll probably be too expensive.
