    It'll be interesting, he probably can't do worse than the last one.

    Article in The Australian states that McGuire wants JT2 and Ponga to play for New Zealand.

    JT2?? Taumololo?? or?

    Seems like Radio Sport has been reporting it will be 'madge' for a few days now.
    Down to him or Daley and I know which one I'd pick.

    It'll be McGuire. If it makes the 6pm TV news, its usually a solid source. Well fairly solid.

    Great news if true.

    We have had excellent candidates step up once the selection criteria was thrown open. Big ups to Raelene Castle for cleaning up the mess that is the NZRL....hopefully she won't be called in to sort out the ARL also.

    Madge is another Melbourne graduate which will suit the Kiwi Warriors players and obviously the Melbourne players.

    Structure is always good for New Zealand, the advent of structure, completion, defence was introduced by Stephen Kearney....and will be his legacy.

    Prior to that we relied on being more aggressive than the opposition and individual brilliance.

    Well, there Facebook Live announcement was an absolute fail.
    Yes, we had video
    But no, we had no sound.

    Thankfully anyone who knows NRL would have picked Madge sat there

    And the next Warriors coach after Kearney decides to move back to Brisbane at the end of next year, with a NRL premiership (or two) under his belt.

    Yes (FYI I work in IT)
    Wasn't an issue on my end, as all the comments on the live stream were other people laughing or complaining. Lots of comments like 'video only stream huh' etc

    I will support anyone who puts on the Warriors jersey or the Kiwis jersey, but if I had my way: f**k JT2, f**k Fusitua, f**k Manu Ma'u, f**k 'em all

    I'm a patriotic soul at the best of times and more than ever when it comes to rugby league. I've got no time for Kiwis who don't want to be Kiwis.

    100%. I don't care how good some of them are if you put another jersey above the Kiwi then you don't get to wear it again when you decide it suits you.

    Those players left because of Kidwell.

    I remember when David Fusitua started out playing for the Warrior, I instantly saw the potential in him. I was gutted when Cappy dropped him and I remember saying on our forum that he would be a top winger one day and one of our NZ posters (not sure of whom it was) said "oh he's not that great". Now look.

    Anyway, Kidwell always favoured Watene-Zelezniak over Fusitua and that use to piss me off. Kidwell picked an almost all Maori side instead of a KIWIS side. As a result of this and other scenarios, came the divide and the Tongans made sure that justice was served in the RLWC with Fusitua picking up a double.

    If you know the driver of the car is blind, you get out of the car, you don't buckle up.

    f**k Kidwell.
