Poching's shoulders are so big, they have had to make his profile picture in landscape. Beast!
According to the warriors site, he's signed to play NSW cup:

Here's the link to he's profile:
Are you say that this squad picked for Saturday is better than the Nelson squad last year ? Crazy.
Has anyone been seeing them train. If so how do they look and the following.
1. How do our young forwards look. Really any one outside Luke, Lillyman, Thompson, Hoffman and Mannering.
2. Is there anyone looking likely to step up like Tevaga last year.
3. Are there any outside backs starting to stake a claim, I'm thinking mostly Wing here.
4. Are the senior players leading the way in training.
5. If possible, can you comment on how this year differs from previous pre seasons.
Was he talking about this season? If he is that sounds really bad.The phone calls ran along the lines of "You know that phrase 'You play like you train'? Well, you're fucked. Again. These guys train like it's all a big joke." He was disgusted by what he saw.
Gents, take this as gospel. The MAJOR issue at the Warriors lies with the leadership - or lack thereof - of the senior player group. There is a fundamental flaw within that clique that is apparently very hard to identify at first as it is deep seeded and because the playing group is full of genuinely nice people. However, the reality is that the aspiration of the senior long-term players (who are the constant throughout all the change and inconsistent performance) to influence the culture and lead is approximately zero. Apparently, they are good guys and have talent but they don't want to take responsibility. Nor do they want others to step up around them and grow a constructive environment. Hence, external players are now being picked as leaders: Hoffman and TVS, for example. Shaun Johnson tried to step up and bring some genuine intent to lead and he was pushed back on because of his approach as it made the established players feel uncomfortable. Whenever a coach has cottoned onto this pattern and tried to change this lethargic aspirational culture by pushing them to uncomfortable places, the senior players have the ear of ownership. History shows their complaints are heard. The Warriors' biggest hope is that the young players coming through are not stifled and are given the responsibility to change the approach of the club. Hopefully Stephen Kearney is given the time to do this. But we shall see. Their first outing of 2017 was hardly a promising sign.
