    I predict that Niukore will have his breakout season this year.

    Cant see BA not picking Taka in the 17 even when Waqa is fit.

    I am predicting he doesn't do much.
    Lane will continue to ascend.

    I really like that predicted round 1 team but I would leave Niukoma off the bench and bring in Salmon.

    Marata is 23 and had 39 games.
    I'd say this is his year to break out or he will otherwise remain a simmilar level for rest of career.
    I am unsure what areas he may change that turns him into a better player personaly. He runs straight and hard and his body seems seasoned. Unlike Lane who had injuries and had a great ball playing game he needed to develop. Sorry Ram but I feel your off on this one.

    He could improve the way he hits holes. Im surprised you haven't identified that in your science group/book club or whatever it is you do with @TheRam

    I've never heard it called an 'off' before.

    Don't think Taka will be picked for bench, more likely Stone or Salmon who can give Mahoney a rest. The top 13 picks itself and is a strong team on paper - pity we have to play on grass then.

    I agree that he doesn't seem to possess much other then a straight hard running game, but after watching the 9's a trial, he carried the ball very strongly, and seemed more powerful then the others. So coming into his manly man years now, he may have that seasoned extra strength that players need and get as they mature into first grade.

    But you are right, he could prove to be not much more then he already is once all the big boys are back and in front of him. The odds are in your prediction favour Hindy, I just hope he does show more of what I saw in those games thus far or if we don't we should start to elevate others over him to see what they can do.

    But either way, this is the year I will judge him either way.

    We identify many things in our science group/book club B n B, but somehow Niukore slipped our lips.
