Just my opinion of who will stay and Go at New Zealand Warriors in the NRL
Bunty Afoa- Stays ( As he is still relatively young and still holds some promise I can see the Warriors keeping him on board especially given the mediocre forward pack we've had in years prior)

Leeson Ah Mau Go ( Not that I don't like him but given how stingy his performances have been of late and the board has been as trigger happy they'd let him walk out and try to sign another young forward which would be unfortunate as he's one of the more aggressive enforcers in the team

Gerard Beale Go ( I find extremely unprofessional how the Board publicly called him and few others out telling them they weren't needed at the club anymore, a former Premiership winning centre at that. I admit he hasn't been the gem we thought we signed in 2017 but he has had his moments. He's a New Zealand international for a reason but at the end of this current season he will move on.)

Adam Blair Go ( How the hell is everyone else at threat at moving on yet still this walking gargoyle is still at the club, legend or no legend he has done nothing that has warranted his long stay at the club. He needs to be moved on or just consider retirement as he has been woeful)

Lachlan Burr Stays ( Not exactly my cup of tea but we can't sell everyone so I'm guessing he'll still be around to make up the numbers)

Josh Curran Stays ( Was decent in his first couple of matches at the Warriors but just needs to put on some more body and he will make a very good lock forward as he already has the ball-playing skills to match)

Wayde Egan Stays ( Not fair to judge him on a season that's been disrupted especially given the amount of shuffling been done to the forward pack, he's shown to be a good Hooker and just needs time to build with the forwards and his halves)

Jackson Frei Stays ( I quite like this bloke, strong and aggressive but probably needs more adaption and training to get into the rigours of first grade and he'll make a fine Prop Forward)

David Fusitua Stays ( Not been the same since that record 2018 season he topped the try-scoring charts its been inconsistency, injuries and now he's heading back to New Zealand due to his family. But it would be nonsensical to throw away one of the best wingers in the comp cause of two average seasons, on his day he's one of the most dangerous wingers and once on form he is unstoppable

Blake Green Go ( He may be a top halfback on his day but those days are far and few between, I don't agree with the public scathing he received from the owners but he's been playing like he doesn't even know what to do, inconsistent, disappears and just is about everything annoying with the Warriors lackadaisical play I'd show him the respect he deserves and kindly allow him to move to another club

Tohu Harris Stays ( Absolute priority to snap up and keep, one of the few who have justified their stay at the club despite his earlier misdemeanors of not playing like he wasn't a former Grand Final winner.

Chanel Harris Tevita Stays ( He needs to be kept at the club otherwise we risk losing him to another NRL club and they reap the benefits, such clubs like Eels with Shaun Lane or Raiders with Charnze Nickoll Klokstad)

Patrick Herbert Stays ( A frustrating player but is ok when he's ready, shouldn't be sold as he has the time on his hands to make his mark)

Peta Hiku Stays ( In any other scenario I'd be willing to sell this bloke but the one redeeming quality that has saved him from my view to have him sold is the fact that he's the only centre at the club that shows good attacking qualities, has built a solid partnership with his winger and actually can defend. Should be retained on that basis in my view)

Eliesa Katoa Stays ( Does anything truly have to be said?)

Adam Keighran Stays ( Honestly, this guy has the tools and the skills to be a top-level Halfback for the Warriors but keeping him benched does him no favors, he needs game time.

Karl Lawton Go ( Divides Opinion but he's not what the Warriors need at the moment and they should move him on)

Ken Maumalo Stays ( Walking headache in 2016, now the best winger at the club barring Fusitua. Should be retained immediately)

Taane Milne Go ( He's not that bad of a player but he's barely been given chances at the club and we could free up the cap space by moving him on.)

Jack Murchie Stays ( I'm not keen to be selling every bloke just because he's not churning out Taumalolo like statistics and with proper training, he could very well become a Warriors regular with consistency)

Kodi Nikorima Stays ( Creative threat and needs to be more dominant, he's old enough now)

Agnatius Passi Undecided ( I've been wondering when will he come good for the Warriors it's been 2 years and we've yet to see the form he showed while at Gold Coast TItans on a regular basis, he's one of my favoritie forwards so I'd be more inclined to keeping him but you never know with Passi at times)

Isaiah Papali'i Stays ( Young Second Row who's powerful and is homegrown, I see no reason to move him on)

Hayze Perham Stays (Homegrown quota remains the same for young Hayze)

Adam Pompey Stays ( He could just be the centre that forms the partnership with David Fusitua we've desperately needed

Leivaha Pulu Go ( Nothing personal, I just think he we could find another alternative)

Nathaniel Roache Go ( It's so sad seeing this bloke injured almost every season like this and he's a good hooker but maybe it's time we cut our losses. Very sad it almost breaks my heart seeing this young kid injured so often

Jamayne Taunoa-Brown Stays ( Again No brainer)

Jazz Tevaga Stays ( But think he needs to put on a bit of weight as for a lock he's quite small but a crafty Hooker option when we need him)

Roger Tuivasa Sheck Stays ( But think he and whoever our coach is after this season needs to revise our strategy around his attack cause churning out 500 meters with no attacking contributions to a try or try-scoring opportunity is annoying for a man of his talents, also defense needs to get back to what it was back in 2018)

King Vuniyayawa Stays ( Fiji International and rising forward, should be kept)

This is just my humble my opinion on the Warriors players of who should stick around and who should go
