Three finals games and Munster and Grant played like reverse grade players.

My two cents;

PACIFIC TOURNAMENT
Kangaroos

I think they will probably keep the Hunt/Grant combo for the Kangaroos, but he's looked exhausted in his last few games and it wouldn't hurt him to have the rest. I'll be gobsmacked if Munster is picked, he's been nowhere near his best since Origin. There have been better wingers than Coates this year, but he's done enough that loyalty might see him through.

Kiwis

Hughes maybe for NZ - although he might miss out for SJ - and probably Warbrick. Olam for PNG.

Smokey

Eli Katoa - dollar for dollar/pound for pound I think he's been our best this year. I'll be stunned if he's not picked for Tonga.

DALLY Ms
Warbrick is a chance for rookie of the year. No-one else is going to come close for Dally M positional awards.
We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately

I would like to think he would get it, but not one award is coming Storm's way this year.

Yeah I don’t think we pick up anything this year. Harry might snag the Hooker award, but I’m not convinced it would be entirely deserved this year.

Harry’s defence is a not spoken about problem we are going to have to address at some point.

Harry will walk in the hooker of the year award. Dude was tied for third overall when the votes went behind closed doors.

He had a somewhat quite-ish finish to the year but just look at his numbers across the park compared to everyone else.

Yea, man. His standards are high but he still had a great season.

Interesting that the SEN website has a list of the Samoan players and YT is included with a warriors logo. It's probably a mistake or is there something we haven't heard yet?
