Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and Kane to be suspended

Don’t bring Kosi back
Chad is listed as Indefinite on the injury report. The warriors in my view should not rush him back as his long term career is on the line. Needs to recover for next season. Last game when he played hurt he was a turnstile on defence,

I've been mulling over the prop rotation as in the presser they asked should one of lodge and addin be on the field at all times. I totally agree with this but I also think both must start and finish together as they make the warriors attack that much more dangerous.

The beauty about all of this is that the warriors have two big minute props.

Would play Blake first 40 straight and lodge first 30 with bunty coming in first
Then Evans for 20 in middle of second half rotating lodge and Blake back in somehow to finish the game together.

While hesitant to change a winning team I'd like to see Hiku return to the righthand side of the field to utilise his offload. Vailea had been playing on the left side for Redcliffe so it would be a straight switch but considering we lack continuity as is it's probably not high on the selectors list
But we know hiku can play both so why not play vailia on his prefered side?

So Fusitua is hamstring indefinitely now lol. Ben Murdoch-Masila out for the season.

Somehow Hiku seems to be making a huge difference lol, 2 out of 2 since returning, and was out before the losing streak?

Addin Fonua-Blake can play 30, return after halftime, Lodge can rest after halftime and return with 30 to go (I prefer him to be on the field for the last part of each half as it might be easier to offload with tired legs around him and more gaps around to exploit.

After last nights game the team should be use to Evan's being on the sideline.
