Been looking at the Warriors instagram page and have no evidence it’s the case but the players in the white training strip look to be the possible team with Shaun Johnson and Egan also apart of that team. Arthurs is also wearing the white strip and it’s possible he could be training with that team as fullback for round 1 and 2 or ahead as one of the centres at present. Could also have nothing to do with it at all the jerseys they’re wearing. Jazz isn’t in white, who knows.

I’m not too fused who gets the spot but based on tonight..
I think Chanel Harris-Tavita being tried at fullback means u can put a line through him.
Taylor very quiet.
The fact kodi was given the left side when Shaun Johnson predominantly plays on the right would suggest he’s got his nose in front.
Think kodi played 9 aswell.
Chanel I think will play 1 for the first 2 rounds , then move to 6.
His combo with Reece Walsh looks sick.

Kodi, and if he keeps playing well he might keep it. But I don't know....
The teams quite hard to put together in my head...
But what I saw from the trial was really heartening with all the players really.
I just think if they wanted Chanel Harris-Tavita in the 6 he would’ve been there tonight and kodi (or one of the many other options) would’ve been trialing at the back.
It could be an opportunity for him though because if he does get to play fullback and plays well enough they may decide they need to keep him in the team and your scenario could still unfold.

Not saying Chanel Harris-Tavita is good 1 or anything , but supports well , puts his body on the line... and having him there rather than shuffling backs makes it easier when Walsh comes back.
Tbh. Kodi might not make the 17. If Jazz is 14 because Jazz is playing outstanding and I think that might start with siro as he's a tacklebot...

Because I think Chanel looks sharp at 6. Combines well with Walsh. And Kodi is a bit all over the place...

How about Adam Cook for the half for the first two rounds? I am not suggesting this. I am just floating it for comments.
Here is his profile https://www.qrl.com.au/players/qrl-premiership/mackay-cutters/adam-cook/

Tackle Efficiency of 86% percent. He can kick well. His four appearances for the cutters were at half back despite being listed as a fullback.

Brown said he wanted someone who can tackle and kick. Does that bring him into the mixer?

Was Kodi the best hooker out there ?
No he rushed up in defence out of sequence with the other defenders leading to line breaks down his edge. He also as a hooker made a pass to a dude one inch from the sideline who did well to catch it and then was bundled into touch causing a turn over. Finally as a hooker he kicked early in the tackle count on one occasion straight down the full backs throat which led to Storm getting good field position and nearly scoring on the next set.

I mean and are you including Kodi vs Grant in your post? Or just for the warriors?

If I am anti Kodi and you are rating Kodi ahead of Harry Grant then you must have a Kodi poster up on your wall. That is said light heartedly for humour. Just pulling your leg.

You can't contract 3 specialist halves and then play a random guy from outside of the top 30 unless those 3 are all injured. Plus it sends a message that you blokes are shit and I'm overlooking you all for this plodder, which is what sent Paul Turner out the door last year.

Potentially. We'd have to commit to him for all of 2022 for him to be eligible though. Unless he's been training the house down I'd think they'd be reluctant to do so

I reckon they might go with Ash for the first 2 rounds then Chanel Harris-Tavita.
I think before the match last night Nathan indicated as much by inference. The measuring stick he set “ will just go for Someone who can defend and kick well”
Those seem to be goalposts that would lead to an ash Taylor selection over Kodi
The complicating factor was Taylor missed his first two tackles egregiously last night.

My supposition is that brown selected those criteria based on leaning towards ash before the game began
