,CocI am not really there on Kosi being the best thing the club has uncovered dn a long time. He has looked so much better though. His response after what happen in the Storm game is what really impresses me. He has the potential to go far. Crazy how he is 4cm taller Manu.
What spins my wheels about comparison to Manu is ...Manu was hot housed by the Warriors from his early teens, literally pulled from park footy before he was 15 and put into the program
Ed has done everything from a cold start. He is literally like you and me the younger version shooting for the stars from nowhere.

And he is climbing the noob ladder like a freak, I'd say we need to understand his pathway, because do you even realise what an Oxymoron your statement is about scoring standard wingers Trys?

Do you no understand the Warriors scoring standard anything is massive improve on their sub standard NRL performances?

I haven’t seen your preference Berry being accused of scoring standard NRL Trys.

To be frank. Kosi is better than long time prop Wing Ken Maumalo who couldn't score standard NRL trys either.

Keep posting cartoons I'm too old to have ever watched that shit, like Kosi is too old to fit in ur box


Lets just watch what happens eh I guarantee u Kosi is gonna have the last laugh because he is an exceptional footballer.

Oh god please don't start another pro vs anti Chanel Harris-Tavita thread on Kosi. We have made our points and neither of us have enough data for a conclusion due to limited games

He’s alright
 
Seeing a few of those dolphins/warriors in person a few months back i was in awe at the size of the buggers.

Rocco is a tall kid. Needs some meat on his bones tho. Kosi is dam specimen (pause) He looked huge. As big as most of the dolphin's forwards.

The only ones as big as him were Katoa & Frei. Those two looked friggen massive. Frei has filled out that's for sure.

It's a shame we've lost Katoa. Can't see Frei staying on.
Apart from , Tohu & Murchie & maybe Niukore. We've got a midget forward pack lol.

Look mate it's simple, Ed kosi is improving at an exponential rate based on number of games played and that is actually still bugger all.

No Warriors juniors.

No years in Reggies till this year.

No development in otherwords, so his climb from obscurity is far beyond your mere trys any winger could score, lets try Berry nonsense

Any of the other 15 clubs would snap a guy that big with that speed, and attitude up...especially given his lack of experience, and they would hot house him as a potential star.

Anyway I'm so confident at what I'm seeing Im prepared to call it and stand by my Judgement. Kosi is gonna be our best Winger since the Beast.

I'm gonna go warriors by 10 points. I think last week win against the doggies built some confidence and the boys were actually playing some footy with good ball movement and running into space. Cowboys are a much better team defensively than the doggies though so will be a tough game but we showed we can compete earlier in the year.
 
I have a strangely confident feeling this week...Warriors by 12 and under
Haha I’m hearing ya- but then desperate people will believe anything.
Seriously though, the cowboys are starting to look a bit shaky…. Would’ve been a long season for some of their young guns- esp under an intense coach like patten.

Just on kosi- I just worked out since coming back into the side he’s averaging 148 meters per game- desperately needed meters too I may add.
 
Behind by 4, in the 79th minute, after Shaun Johnson throws an intercept 10m out from the Cows line Kosi runs their player down, one on one strip's him 5m from the goal-line, runs to half way before putting on a chip and regather, stepping the fullback and racing to the line where he does a triple Summersault put down for the win.

Because.....Kosi.....
Then misses the conversion 👀

Wait'll Berry comes back, since he's been at the dolphins he's turned into a game breaker with the skills of Gidley, Marshall and Freddy Fittler combined, sounds like next year's our year then

I like posters who have Kahunas
That’s a big cheque you are writing there
Oh well let’s watch this weekend

Good to keep the same lineup just on the Kosi/Berry debate I'd be fine with giving him the start the rest of this season and battle Montoya for it next season or shift Montoya to centre completely

Berry on the other hand can continue developing in reserve grade which from the sounds of it is good but we shouldn't be in a rush to give him a start yet the idea should be to have him and Vailea battle for one spot all of next season
