General 2010 Warriors squad

Magic Stick_old

Guest
This year we had 34 contracted players in the top squad...So if they have 34 in 2010 the Warriors then have about 10 slots to fill

OUTSIDE BACKS :

Wade Mckinnon
Kevin Locke
Denan Kemp
Manu Vatuvei

Pretty good cover here, They could add Tupou or Ah Van from the 20's or look to upgrade from Kirk and find another utililty

CENTERS:

Jerome Ropati
Brent Tate
Patrick Ah Van

Ropati is in horrible form,and Tate will be back in 2010. But if Ropati or Tate go down with injury in 2010 we look real thin....Moon or Mannering can cover the centers. Likiliki or Bristow or maybe both will be in the 1st grade squad next year

HALFS:

Joel Moon
Lance Hohaia
Issac John

If Stacey doesnt sign on for 2010, The halves look a mess.But i dont think they should be signing Jones any way,So they probaly need to sign two halves....A experienced 7 and a young 6 who can play 7 also , Shaun Johnson is the future but he probaly wont see 1st grade until late 2010..Issac John is no where near 1st grade qualilty

PROPS:

Steve Price
Russell Packer
Sam Rapira
Jesse Royal
Upu Poaching

Looks Like Leeson Ah Mau is gone and Tuimavave and Retzlaff been told to look else where also, Sounds like the club is looking for a Aussie veteran....theres nothin in the 20's even close

HOOKERS:

Ian Henderson
Aaron Heremaia

Hohaia and Brown can also cover hooker....Alehana Mara has big potential,might take starting berth from Henderson sometime in 2010...Kurt Kara would be a good squad addition,he can cover a few positions

BACKROWERS:

Simon Mannering
Ben Matulino
Jacob Lillyman
Lewis Brown
Michael Luck
Ukuma Ta'ai
Dan O'Regan

Got good players in the 20's with Gavet,Louisi,Afioga and Taylor...But they might look to get a backrower with quick feet

Players Gone from 2009 - Malo Solomona, Aiden Kirk, Liam Foran, Michael Witt, Nathan Fien, Stacey Jones ?, Herman Retzlaff, Leeson Ah Mau ?, Evarn Tuimavave ?, Epalahame Lauaki

holly molly centers and halves look thin for next year,i herd matt king is looking to come back to the nrl.ropati needs some competion for his spot.tim smith should be signed to a 1 year deal with option cause johnson should be ready mid 2010
how about cuthbertson from the seaeagles?

There are a few good young props in the NYC. If we are looking for some new props, we should give Penrith a call, Sam McKendry and Tinirau Arona are going great guns. McKendry is a Kiwi too, so that is an added bonus. Actually, I'm not too sure he is would rather play for now... He is eligible to play for both, I haven't talked to him in a while.

What about Godinet? Does he deserve a contract? I rate him higher than John.

I would love the Warriors to snag a Inu or Stanley...dont know if there off contract but they seem to be out of favour....change of scenery could be good for them

Especially Stanley who could also play as a ball playing secondrower

Other than a big name half's signing, Id say the warriors will be bargain hunting

Stanley would be a great buy, he'd fit in really well to the culture at the warriors. Finch is not being re-signed by the Storm because of salary cap issues. I reckon he would be a good buy even on a one or two year deal.

what about jared waerea-hargreaves or for a young standoff off contract albert kelly.but i think the tigers have offered him big coin

Looking at our halves for next year, I know I would rather have Finch there instead of John. So I wouldn't really mind if we signed him for 2 years, but only if we fail to buy a key halfback, just a last resort option.

Albert Kelly would be okay, but I don't think we really need more young halves, just an experienced until Johnson is ready. To be honest, I think we should just hire someone to live in Parramatta and get all their juniors... They keep churning out great ones, which they are only too happy to give away. This will probably change now that Fitzgerald has left though.

Michael Mongahan or Tim Smith are the only players id look at from the superleague that are available

karl filiga worth a shot? seen him play 1 game last year and he was mean. rangi chase will be a nice backup in the halfs or hooker

Karl's playing for Wentworthville, I'm not sure if he has a full time contract with Parramatta though.
