Yah....if Air NZ staff are saying up the Wahs as part of in flight messaging then you would be dumb to not get on board.

Sure it is a stupid saying, but it has become our stupid saying, and we are killing Union in NZ because our brand embraces stupid sayings and our brand has a don't kill the fun rule that is packing out Mt Smart while the rest of the NRL and competing codes in NZ scratch their arses and wonders what is in the water over here.
I have an AirNZ flight to Auckland tomorrow - I might have to cancel and go with Qantas. ;)

Harris is a Kiwi through and through and this signing is looking like the tipping point for Maori stars in the NRL wanting to see a similar revolution to the rise of the likes of Tonga and Samoa.
I agree, this is 100% how I see it. JFH is a leader, he has massive mana, those guys who played under him to smack the Kangaroos would love to play with him more.

Great signing. Barnett, Niukore, etc, can just be their excellent selves next year, without the pressure of being Fonua-Blake's replacement.

2024 is right here, right now, and it's exciting. Next year (Warriors fans just love talking about 'next year'!) can wait.

f**k next year, you guys are a shot this year if Nathan's hammy goes again. Your halves are a weakness but it's a very open comp apart from Penrith

Joey said on a podcast that in the Maori Camp this year (or maybe last year), they put Leo Thompson with him. Thompson came back to the Knights a completely different player. Diet was different, mental prep was different, routines were different. All because he spent time with JFH

This is so cool. He exudes that sort of leadership - it's pretty rare in league.

Someone else was saying (possibly Brandy), JFH doesn't speak much, but is the person who keeps all the young Penrith boys level. If he thinks someone is playing up or being a dick, he just looks at them and that is enough. You don't get on the wrong side of him. Pure leader.
