I will try to get there a bit early to see how Papenhuyzen, Lemuelu & Paseka go.

I imagine these players will all play FG sometime in the next few years.

Decent enough looking squad for round 1. Hopefully our halves gel together as we have some pretty talented outside backs who can really do some damage.

Bring it Mikaele

Let the beast loose

Back row looks the question mark for this side. But who knows, i haven’t seen a number of these kids play yet. Outside backs and props look strong. Kurnoth is supposed to be a big lad too.

Nah, he’s small. Only listed at 179cm and 94kg, lightweight for a backrower.

Well that’s a pity, hopefully he’s an aggressive little nugget that throws himself around a lot!

I was surprised to see Paseka in NYC…maybe Hutchinson thought he needed more size…

Kurnoth will tackle anything. More then capable of handling himself against bigger opposition.

Also looking forward to Mikaele and the damage he will do.
