Tuimavave back to bolster Vodafone Junior Warriors

Carlos Tuimavave returns from a five-game NRL stint to line up for the Vodafone Junior Warriors in their week one NYC finals clash against the Raiders at Canberra Stadium on Sunday (3.30pm kick-off local time).
The 20-year-old Tuimavave, who’s in his third and final NYC season, missed the Vodafone Junior Warriors’ last six regular season matches.

He made his 50th NYC appearance against Newcastle before travelling to Perth as 18th man for the Vodafone Warriors’ NRL match against Manly. The following week he became Vodafone Warrior No 177 in his first-grade debut against Cronulla, the first of five straight outings.

With the NRL team’s season over, Tuimavave is back at standoff for his third taste of NYC finals football in as many seasons. He’ll partner 18-year-old NYC rookie Mason Lino in the halves with Peta Hiku, who has been filling the No 6 role recently, going back to the wing in place of Viliami Lolohea. Omar Slaimankhel, who scored his 47th try in his 50th NYC match last weekend, will again line up at fullback in a now settled line-up.

The forward pack named to start is the same used in the last two outings, the 30-28 win against St George Illawarra and last Sunday’s 26-12 victory over the Raiders. Another player joining the 50-game club on Sunday will be hooker Siliva Havili, who has scored 13 tries in 22 games so far this year.
Trent Bishop, Toka Likiliki and Albert Vete are again on the bench with Nathaniel Peteru back in the squad alongside them.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors’ win over Canberra last weekend secured a share of top spot on the ladder, the Bulldogs taking the minor premiership on points for and against.
With Canberra third in the NYC and the Raiders’ NRL side earning a home play-off under the new finals format, the Vodafone Junior Warriors have been handed the difficult mission of taking on the young Raiders in Canberra.

Very shocked that VILIAMI LOLOHEA missed the 17 but it's a top side and hopefully that travel doesn't phase them and the boys can score a good win.
Is there a story behind Jordan Meads? If Mason Lino is rated a better player that's that but what about when they expermented with differnt 6's when Carlos wasn't playing. A Meads and Lino combo might have helped win a minor premiership...

From what I saw, Meads was sent to the Vulcans to cover for Godinet's absence (due to far too many 18th man selections), and to see if he is up to a contract with the club, for the Vulcans. It appears they have decided he isn't a first grade option, so he went to France for a contract and was released a few weeks ago. He is already playing in France, from what I have read.

Its a shame if you ask me. I can't see Meads ever breaking into the top team, but he would make good injury cover and become a very important part of a successful Vulcans team over time.

Bishop has been a stand out all season. Great to have rolling off the bench following Havili. The team hardly loses momentum with that interchange. This is a great side that they are playing with today so there are no excuses in how they should perform.

Awful decision form the ref gives them the ball and they score on the 5th.

This could turn ugly - 10 minuted in, 10 points to nil

don't want to be negative but even other teams juniors look better coached than us. we have the size and skill but lack the smarts and execution. until we start relying on playing with some structure and playing smart in the lower grades i don't think pushing the players through into first grade is going to give us much success. i wouldn't mind a head coach who instills the same structure and type of play through out the grades.
on a side note that trent bishop looks like a reasoonable player to me.
