But he hasn't been tearing it up at centre. Look at Ponga, amazing at FB, lost all his spark in the halves.
And don't you get the feeling that this coaching staff here at the Warriors would extinguish and suppress any of CNK's natural abilities and flair from rising to the surface!

Did we even give him the chance ? Or was it all wasted on Kata. The guys a talent, he could play wing or centre for the raiders now and still be good.

CNK’s defence is a bit suspect and lacks the size to play centre or wing. Good fit at fullback playing in a team playing well. He would have been behind RTS and Hiku (who has played well at fullback for us) and possibly Fusitua and Hayze Perham here.

There's a really good interview with CNK on the Locker Room Podcast :
Seems like such a nice, humble kid. I didn't realise he had played so much centre previously and it is a wonder why he never got a run there in top grade. Sounds like he didn't want to leave and got bigger/faster/better over the seasons but for whatever reason was down the pecking order after Beale and Hiku were recruited.

Good on him for taking his opportunity at the Raiders.

Always liked CNK and was gutted he went as he never seemed to let us down when he played. In saying that apart from maybe Center I’m unsure where he would have been first choice

So he's leading the comp in run metres, runs, 3rd in tackle breaks, 1st in kick returns. Ken is close behind him in a number of those. We could of had both.

lol@our club...

Funny that. Not first choice here. He must have gone to a lesser club. Where is it and where are they on the ladder? :rolleyes: :rolleyes: I am wrapped for the kid. Guys like him should be given a priority in a team for having what is lacking in so many others. Big dicks are no good when they are limp, even if they are still big.

Would've had him on the wing personally but that ship is sailed. Glad to see him killing it.
Unfathomable decision from the management. Just crazy. No worries, they and we are paying for it.

Fus? Dunno about that but I see your point. Trouble is we don't have a forward pack so we need monsters in the backs. Our Claytons forward pack.
Fus, As a winger is potentially better than our current centre options . Except Herbert. Hiku could be the complete package at centre if he could tackle lol.

Fus is big, has tackle breaking ability , Enough speed to make cover tackles. Pretty good overall defensively , Although he can get caught out when defending the try line. An absolute weapon in the air. And can offload in traffic. And not to bad with his passing game.
Charnze would fit right in next to him. Speed, A footy brain , And fit as a fiddle.

But as you eluded to, Our midget forwards called for bigger backs to make us yards! Sad.

Ken needs to move to the pack.
Manu never did so I doubt Ken ever will, but I’d love to see us with a winger with real pace and Maumalo dropping back on the 5th to take hitups as a forward

Absolutely wrapped for the kid he is doing so well. Gutted he was let go, always played well for the Warriors when given a chance but doesnt surprise me letting talent go and keeping average reserve grade players in first grade.
