I hope we keep Chanel Harris-Tavita. But if he's demanding a contract extension and upgrade with over a year left on his contract.. He simply hasn't earnt that right. I think he has growth to come for sure, but he has a long what to go and a lot to prove to ask for a bigger contract right now.

I don't think he will be at the Raiders next year, him and Wighton are a weird combo, with not much kicking or organization.

I disagree - he was injured a lot more and came back to try and prove himself and got injured again and again.

Kodi goes missing in games, he tried.

He could tackle better than Kodi as well.

He made not have Kodi's experience but he needs to get there. I was expecting a lot more from Kodi, but he failed in that regards.
It’s hard to disagree with stats tho. Kodi more tries and 5x more try assists in 4 more games at half.

that’s what I’m saying, a disinterested Kodi was still that much better than Chanel Harris-Tavita. Kinda crazy when you think about it

Im still here waiting on that forward the warriors signed according to gus. Im thinking its a prop forward, not a backrower because we have so much depth there. Prop is abit thin as we have not yet signed tom ale and jackson frei. Brown looks to be done with Jamayne Tounua-Brown in my opinion. Leeson Ah-Mau wont be resigned so hes being replaced by aaron pene in 2022.

I am no longer going to talk about Chanel Harris-Tavita in a negative way as I guess I am becoming boring. But honestly the Raiders wanted Chanel Harris-Tavita and the Warriors refused. I do not see the Warriors logic. They had a way to get Chanel Harris-Tavita off the Warriors books and never took it??????
That would leave us with only two halves currently - Shaun Johnson and Kodi - someone who most of us don’t want anywhere near the halves nek year.

The off-season is a long time, I won’t be surprised to see lots of wheeling and dealing done but we need to make sure we’re sorted first before offloading anyone

I would love nothing more then for Chanel Harris-Tavita to be ruthless and go after the extension at the club next year and not take going to November 1 as a personal dis from the club.

Hey if he comes back and played out of skin then he will get what he deserves, would love to see him be a 1 club man as there are hardly any of those around anymore, and what would does it say to players coming through this club?

Yes he has to perform but we as Warriors fans should be willing him on to make it here for our club. We are still.... believe it or not are still trying to find the identity of this club.

Hooker is the problem area tat needs to be addressed that there seems to be silence about. Does anyone know how much confidence they have in Otukolo coming good next year?

Agree with this. It is a positive thing the club is giving Chanel Harris-Tavita. If he does perform, which is the expectation anyway, he can maximise his contract with the club rather than possibly selling himself short by signing now. Also the club gets a chance to assess where they stand. It is a reasonable outcome for all. Unless injury strikes again.

He passes nicely directly from the ground so doesn't take that time consuming step or wind up like a lot of others. Reminds me a bit of Aaron Smith in that regard.

Haven't seen a lot of him to check his D or running game. Seems to have a few wraps on him though.

We are looking at signing a right wing? playdaball playdaball - why do we need another wing?
Rugby league was always dominated by left wingers, so about time they tried to balance it up a little.
