Feck!! I thought it was round 3. Maumolo is not my pick, I just think he will be there because he will be selected.Foran isn't available until round 3. Also, do you like Maumolo or is he just there because you prefer him over Vatuvei?
Is Roache injured still?Second biggest mystery is who will play the bench utility?
Lolo is a finisher though even allowing for his defensive deficiencies. I would like to know what SK sees in Maumolo.My only concern with that is the wingers.. Lolo got found out with his positional play on the wing last season and the only try the Titans scored in the trial was through similar play. Kenny isn't good enough for NRL Standard, Sorry Kenny.
SK said after the trial he was playing 6...Judging by the NZ Herald article this morning, Johnson is expecting, as most forumer's are picking, to have Ata at #6 against the Knights.
You are missing Anthony Tupou from the Knights, I will definitely taking the Knights to stay within the points start, they have a 44-0 win over an under strength Raiders and a smart coach and have recruited smartly for 2017.RLW predicted teams for next weekend.
Will Manu be ready and match fit? No Ashford in the reserves.
