I think Fa'alogo will be with the Kiwis for a couple of years yet, as he's still only 28. Kidwell, on the other hand, is counting down at 31.
He's a good player, but he's faded away a lot in the last 12 months. I believe there is better options out there in the forwards.
Next year the two starting front rowers will be Roy Asotasi, and Jiff Lima, with Isaac Luke at hooker, and Masada Iosefa back up hooker on the bench.
Back row Frank Pritchard, Sika Manu, Simon Mannering at lock, Satimata Sa on the bench. Sam Rapira, Adam Blair two props on the bench. Then you'll have Cherrington, Fraser Anderson, and Ben Matulino pushing to make the 17. The future looks good in the forwards.
Im looking forward to see how Karl Faliga goes next year too along with Sonny fai and Russel Packer.
