I really like his signing, personally think he'll be a better buy then Packer.
He's got a better motor for sure.

I like the fact we will be absolutely fine through the origin period - Unless the likes of Nofo, Brooks, McQueen or Reynolds get shock selections.
I really don't think it is out of the picture for Nofo to be selected.

With players coming off the World Cup their injury chances rise.

And with a new coach and a few injuries Nofo might find himself in a NSW jumper.

It will be nice to have the 4 kiwi boys ( Matulino, Packer, Lolohea and Taylor) on board next year.
As well as Taane Milne and Benji. Not sure about Fonua, I think he's Tongan.
the first 4 are the former Warriors.
You said kiwi? Misunderstanding.

Every Club is only Origin effected for 1 round this year with BYE's for every Club before Origin Ii..

We play the Rorters before Origin as our effected game so I guess that is good...

No..the point is the Origin period wont have the effect it has in previous seasons on any Club with the new schedule..

Because Parra & Souths had a massive advantage playing sides 3 times this year with themselves not missing anyone

Different player. Packer's aggressive, a hit man. Matulino relies on skill. Good ball skills for a big man. Very similar to Todd Payten.

Its a big big call.
He'd be very lucky to crack a position in the top 20 wingers in the comp for mine after a lackluster year just gone.

imo there is a wing spot up for grabs this year

Brett Morris won't play so Mansour will take his spot

After an underwhelming season I don't think Ferguson will retain his spot on the wing. The main candidates are: Nofo, L Mitchell, T Trbojevic, JAC

So depending on injuries and depending how the nes coach goes, Nofo is in a chance for selection

Mate, please. Noffa and JAC's defence, or lack thereof immediately takes them out of the equation. All JAC has is speed. Noffa is a strong ball runner, but that's about it. You need to spend more time watching them without the ball.

2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights

I don't think Ben Matulino will make the team either..

Most definitely not as a winger, though Tamou showed a turn of speed.
