looks to be the dominant combo in the comp right now IMO.
David Long agrees with you.
Last year all the talk was about the Warriors' spine but two games into this season it should be about their stunning right edge.
, Tohu Harris Harris
, Peta Hiku
and David Fusitua
were sensational in the win over the Titans at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday night. Just as they were the previous week against the Rabbitohs.
Given that Hiku
are new to the Warriors NRL team this year, the way they're playing together on attack makes it all the more remarkable.
are both great creators, while Fusitu'a is becoming one of the best finishers in the NRL, so that leaves Hiku
to be the glue that holds it all together.
But Fusitu'a said during preseason they weren't clicking as well as they should have and they needed some direction from Warriors coach Stephen Kearney
"It's something we missed out on in the preseason games," Hiku
said after the 20-8 win.
has got the skill to pull out whatever he needs to do and play with the ball.
"That was something after the preseason games that Stephen Kearney
wanted us to work on.
"We can make little plays for ourselves and get used to how each other plays. If we get that right, we can go a long way. "
Fusitu'a had in the past wanted to be a centre rather than a winger, but so well is he playing in that position that he's making it hard for himself to be given a run anywhere else.
His leaping try from a Johnson
kick in the second half, was something to marvel at.
is great in the air," Hiku
"But last week he picked up the ball at his feet when he was going at speed.
"He can do anything if you can get the ball to him.
"Having him outside me is great, I'm so glad he's there."
The hype going into this game at Mt Smart Stadium was big, because of the win over the Rabbitohs, but that's only going to increase in the build up to next weekend's game against the Raiders in Canberra.
"There was a lot of hype around how we're going, but we're trying block it all out, but now the job is done we can enjoy it," Hiku
For a young, but experienced player like Hiku
, who has previously played for the Sea Eagles, Panthers, Warrington and the Kiwis, he's able to handle the expectations on him. But for the younger players in the team, dealing with it, is something they're going to have to handle.
"If we can leave all that hype to the side and focus on what we need to do, we should be able to do what we need to do," the 25-year-old said.
"The hype will always be there and it will be tough for some players to leave that out.
But if our team can block that aside then we should be OK."
