Time to get out the crystal ball. WARRIORS

With only 8 weeks away from the start of the NRL season, we continue to gaze into the crystal ball as we continue to go through what we believe will be your teams best 17 heading into their 2018 campaign.

1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2. Peta Hiku
3. Blake Ayshford
4. Solomone Kata
5. David Fusitua
6. Blake Green
7. Shaun Johnson
8. Adam Blair
9. Issac Luke
10. Sam Lisone
11. Tohu Harris
12. Bunty Afoa
13. Simon Mannering
14. Agnatius Paasi
15. Albert Vete
16. Leivaha Pulu
17. Nathaniel Roache

The Warriors went on a bit of a spending spree for the 2018 season. Unfortunately Gerard Beale, one of the premiership winning players they have brought to the club will be absent from the side at the start of the season due to breaking his leg in the World Cup, but another new face scene in the backline will be Peta Hiku.
The Warriors were also able to snap up Blake Green after he received a early release from Manly and hopefully for the Warriors his calm nature will help bring the best out in Johnson.
Tohu Harris will start in the second row after a straight swap with Hoffman going back to Melbourne. He will be alongside Bunty Afoa in the scrum and will provide some much needed attack and defensive discipline to the edge.
Possibly the biggest signing for the Warriors will be the New Zealand Kiwis captain Adam Blair coming into the front row for Ben Matalino.
On the bench Vete will be joined  by new signings Paasi and Pulu with Roache also grabbing a spot as the utility.

Do you think we have the side right? Let us know in the comments.
