This quote could possibly be the reason:

"“So we want to get to the stage with our young blokes, if they’re playing, they’ve earned the right to play, they’re not just playing because they’re there in that position.

“Freddy will help Taniela develop, because he’s a seasoned trainer.

“He’s been at a very good club, so he knows what hard training and hard work looks like, which will help Taniela, to see another hooker doing that.”


Dayum another talented warriors junior whos lazy. who would of thought

That's pretty concerning. What I took from that is that Otukolo's a shit trainer.

Lussick has no more 'right to play' first grade than Otukolo. He looked like garbage playing for the Roosters last year and hasnt looked anything special playing for the Bears.

Wayde is acknowledged as a great trainer and clearly a more developed hooker. Why can’t Otukolo look at him as a role model of what hard work looks like?

I’m all for competition for spots though.

Great point. How deflating for Otokolo to be told he needs to look up to a player who's achieved absolutely nothing and comes from a outside system.

How the fuck do the warriors know Lussick trains the house down ? Who told them that, the Roosters? Fuck they must be thinking that guy was easy to sell.

Fonz who do you think pulls the strings at the Warriors? Makes strategic moves, sets the visions, planning etc

You can tell its Gould at the dogs, Ivan at the panthers, Politis at the Roosters. What about the warriors ?

Surely they can identify this before offering him a spot in the top 30. If you're a shit trainer in our system and you're getting promoted anyway what's that tell you and everyone watching?

Pene has no off load - so it means they can chop his legs immediately in contact.
Initially this season Afoa was showing more post contact metres this year because he showed an off load early, but he has since put that away and his metres have subsequently dwindled proportionately.

If I’m Otukolo I’m signing elsewhere as soon as I can. That’s a kick in the teeth.

Fair enough if it was someone that has actually done something in first grade. Or a prospect that was actually shown to be better than him.
 
I like the idea of Pene in the middle while our other starting props are on, defence is his strength and with them all feeding off each other I can’t see the rabbits taking on the middle much unless it’s cook with speed. Harris’ playmaking ability needs him on an edge, hopefully we can score points when he’s on and defend them when Katoa needs to sub him. Lussick has no deal for next year and often players are looking to impress to pick one up. He has a real hookers frame, much like that of Egan. If Otukolo hasn’t earned his selection, I’ve got no problem with Lussick picked ahead of him. Would imagine at some point our props are rested Pene goes to prop, Tevaga to lock and Lussick comes on at dummy half. Lodge or Addin Fonua-Blake need to play longer minutes today and hopefully not off for too long at the same time if at all.

I dont think Pene has the passing to do well at lock. We will struggle to score points with him there. I'm expecting some real clunky attack, especially with the way Shaun Johnson has been and Tevaga at hooker.

Would rather Pene as a hole running second rower tbh, has the speed.
