After all the talk about the fiasco that was last years trial game in Nelson, after watching the interview with SK
stating how disappointed he was in the nines results and his surprise that the players were obviously not as far along as he thought they were which after 15 weeks of preseason is pretty bloody scary, and with only two trial games before the season starts the first squad is named with count them only 1 starting forward in the 26, how does that build confidence, how does that build combinations. It almost looks like the kiwis build up to last years 4 nations where in our attempt to keep the powder dry we didn't even take on to the park.
At least that was only a month long tournament not the torture that could be a repeat of 2016.
Dammit I know it's only preseason jitters but I'm not sure whether it's better to be pessimistic or optimistic for the season to come, but one more season like the previous 6 could almost toll the death knell for this warriors fan
