Pati Hebert for maori. Jamayne Tounua-Brown and curren for indigenous.
Wierd and probably a first that warriors have more players in indig team. But looking at those warriors selected, prehaps warriors refused to let starting 17-20 be able to play?
I wasn't expecting this game to be on, not sure why probably due to covid and everything being disrupted. Nice surprise seeing articles about different players being included.
Going to be good to have some football played.
Last year it was good to get an early look at Jamayne Taunoa-Brown. Curran got a nice try running a good support line, this year from a Warrior point of view it would be good to see him have game time.
I'm still ok with it also. Both our halves and pack leader, seems like a recipe for injury disaster. They've already had a disrupted pre-season due to the split camp issue, so completely understanable why the club said no.
