Angus Phillips for Hooker over Warner is a definite. This season, Phillips was picked over him in the GPS white team due to his superior throwing and ball running. Warner is a great player but Phillips has significant experience in the Opens (2nds in yr 10, 1s in yr 11) and his ball running will only get better as he transitions into a more significant role in Riverviews 1sts.

James warner could possibly be moved to prop for him but cant see warner beating Angus Phillips out.
I have been saying this for a while now, Angus Phillips is a quality football player. With some hard work and dedication in the off-season, he will be a real force in the forward pack for the view boys next year. Maybe even a Captain option? I think that it will be close between him and James Warner for the GPS 1s next year but I am giving the edge to Angus. In saying that, whoever wants it more will get it.

Not much talk about Scots 2XV flyhalf Max Soepono. Great hands and a great rugby brain. Reminds me of when the Wallabies were good all those years ago. I think Onitoni should stay at centre and he is the flyhalf.
Completely agree with that. Onitoni is amazing at the centre position, I don't think he will thrive as much in the flyhalf position. Max Soepono has got incredible IQ on the game, which is a great trait for a flyhalf.
