New Zealand Warriors Players Not Quite Good Enough For First Grade Or First Grade Players Coming Back From Injury Or Extended First Grade Squad Members Or Juniors Been Given A Step Up Or Players Who Should be Playing First Grade But Can't Travel Because Of 'Legal' Reasons.


Or perhaps I'll just use NZW Res.

So, I wonder when we will get to see whether they are going to run out in their own jersey, or wear the same as first grade.

No doubt they are keeping a whole new design under wraps so they can release it last minute and hopefully make a couple of bucks from fans desperate for a little variation and choice this year in Warriors jerseys.

The trial for the Warrior reserves was yesterday against Howick and Glenora - did anyone go? The main feedback I've heard was the Reserves looked good but need more game time together.

This article continues the positive vibe about the club this year (crosses fingers that it doesn't all turn to custard).:playful:

Love this from that article.
The Warriors club in general is going through a really exciting phase presently both on and off the park, and with the club a commercial success and the envy of many other NRL franchises, the decision to field a standalone VB NSW Cup outfit should only further push their claims of being one of the more professional outfits in the game.

Will they get much time together? With the leftover players from yesterdays Dunedin trial and the returning injured, there will be a lot of NSW Cup Warriors having serious competition for spots. Poor Jerome is going to have to find a hobby to tide him over this season.

I hope they keep the same strip and call themselves the Auckland Warriors, personally.

Apparently the new strip will be unveiled soon. Well, I guess it has to aye ;)

I predict it will have the Warriors logo incorporated on it somewhere. You heard it here first!

I know Benry played 6 for the Juniors at times - but 6 for the reserves… madness

It certainly raised my eyebrows! Maybe they just want him to take a lighter road back to full fitness for a few weeks. But also, with Godinet gone, who do they have available? Kata must be playing 20s this week. Huge omission from this team based on form. Although happy to see him in NYC as I will be able to watch him on tv.

Kata is injured. At least 6 weeks out with a dodgy ankle.

I would assume Elliot is feeling a little light on halves cover and is looking outside the box to find backup to get us through until Leuluai and Locke become available. I was surprised to see Mason Lino still around the club, but I would have thought he would step into the Vulcans halves if we were short, or we would play Waetford there and find another fullback.

Heres a thought. Move Benry back to second row, Waetford to 5/8th and bring Ropo back to cover fullback.

Edit: Why wouldn't we play Tui Lolohea if we need halves?

I'd like to see Waetford dominate that fullback spot in reserve grade, if Tomkins goes down (fingers crossed that never happens) i'd rather Waetford come up to first grade than putting locke or fish back there. Is Waetford captain still?

Absolutely stoked with that team. 14 of the starting 17 are direct products of the NYC system. This is exactly what Ive always wanted to see with our Reserve Grade. Particularly the promoting of players who are still eligible to play in the U20's. Great move by Elliott.

Anyone know whats so good about Jared Wilson? Looked well out of his depth against Wigan...

Locke, Leuluai, Sam Lousi, Kata missing. That would be one mean team at full strength. A back line with Fusitua, Hurrell, Kata, Laumape. Screw tackling that.

What's the word on Vete? Just didn't make it or injured?

Agreed - I like it too - exciting times.
I am a big sam Lisone fan.

Mate - who was Wilson's centre?? Fox players.
Wilson played NSW cup last year for Windsor - so would of been rated by Penrith.
I think he played JK's as well.

Cant remember him - but with those credentials obviously a talent.

Name a junior player or Fox player who is better? Somebody available and young enough to make something of it.
The 20s dont have any prospects ready.

Peyroux injured aswell?

Wasnt he charged in one of the trials?
I still dont think we will see Benry play 6 lol.

Vete not selected???? injured or overweight.
Poching is a good player - but not fulltime??
