Pick Your Team 2017 Rnd 5 - Warriors vs Titans

NRL+Rd+17+Warriors+v+Titans+fjw0PBorZ_Rx.jpg

After the Round 4 game against the St George-Illawarra Dragons at UOW Jubilee Oval do you want to see any changes for the Round 5 game against the Gold Coast Titans at Mt Smart Stadium?

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?

Discuss...

Who cares.

Stand by for more Foran conjecture, more honesty chats, a second 4 man advisory Board, a new coach, $5m gym upgrade and new jerseys.......

1 Roger Tuivasa-Sheck - Aussie Trained
2 CNK - Aussie Trained
3 Fusitua- Warriors Trained
4 Ayshford - Aussie Trained
5 Mamalo - Warriors Trained
6 Foran - Aussie Trained
7 Shaun Johnson - Warriors Trained
8 Lillyman - Aussie Trained
9 Luke - Aussie Trained
10 Gavet - Aussie Trained
11 Thompson - Aussie Trained
12 Hoffman - Aussie Trained
13 Mannering - Warriors Trained

14 Matulino - Warriors Trained
15 Lisone - Warriors Trained
16 Sao - Aussie Trained
17 Gubb - Aussie Trained

6 players who've been trained entirely at our club, and 11 who've had at least some training in the Aussie System.

Kerney is obviously trying to get us playing more like the Storm/Broncos (ie as a footy team and not 17 headless chickens). So he's going to have to get serious about selecting players who have seen first hand the benefits of following his game plan.

In

Hingano (who is trying to play the role of professional NRL half, whereas Lolohea is… not) or Lino. Johnson might appreciate Mason getting on the ball and taking some control.
Vete
Klokstad – someone who will be excited to be there – please!

Out

Foran (hopefully short term)
Gubb (we can’t afford to carry a player of his type, let alone start him)
Lolohea (player swap! Anyone want him, anyone?)

Start Vete, Lillyman to bench. Afoa to get more of Hoffmans minutes. The 4 forward bench was halfway effective – if Luke is able to drag his carcass around for the 80. You compare the mini juggernaut who played at souths to this guy. Its not just the forward pack in front of him, his body shape has changed significantly.

Luke is not an 80 minute hooker any more. Roache has had a game in the reserved under is belt now, so get him in there!

Looking at the demographics another way:

Offensively

Skill is relative to their position. So lack of kicking game doesn't count against a props skills score, but getting quick a ptb does,,, etc..
Physical talent also relates to position..
Structure is their ability to work effectively in complex structure as opposed to what they can do with the ball in hand...

This what they have shown they are capable of, not what they did last weekend.

1 RTS - Skills 9, Physical Talent 10, Structure 9
2 CNK - Skills 7, Physical Talent 7, Structure 8
3 Fusitua- Skills 8, Physical Talent 10, Structure 4
4 Ayshford - Skills 7, Physical Talent 6, Structure 9
5 Mamalo - Skills 6, Physical Talent 9, Structure 3
6 Foran - Skills 10, Physical Talent 6, Structure 10
7 SJ - Skills 9, Physical Talent 10, Structure 7
8 Lillyman - Skills 8, Physical Talent 7, Structure 9
9 Luke - Skills 10, Physical Talent 8, Structure 10
10 Gavet - Skills 7, Physical Talent 7, Structure 8
11 Thompson - Skills 8, Physical Talent 7, Structure 8
12 Hoffman - Skills 10, Physical Talent 7, Structure 10
13 Mannering - Skills 6, Physical Talent 8, Structure 5

14 Matulino - Skills 8, Physical Talent 10, Structure 7
15 Lisone - Skills 8, Physical Talent 7, Structure 5
16 Sao - Skills 7, Physical Talent 6, Structure 8
17 Gubb - Skills 5, Physical Talent 4, Structure 8

I think this team offers a good balance across the park. Losing Foran is huge IMO as he's the best structure player in the team, and he's the best half skills player in the team.
