If you look at the Southland Draft picks I think they would want to build a back line that they think they can build around and raise up in the Southland system. Rivez Reihana as the first pick to Draft what you would call a “Franchise Player”. Then you start to build around that and because Southland already have a very young team with a young Half Back and so you look to your 2nd Round pick which I think will be Chay Fihaki to get in the midfield at 12 and then for the 3rd Round Pick a Beast hin the back like Lukas Halls from Kings College. Now lets say 2 of the 3 dont work out Southland could readdress the same position issue in next years Draft. When you can go into a Draft and build a future team.

So if you look at all 3 Rounds for all these teams I think I have Drafted according to what the needs are for the team and making the Player Selections that will better the team. I think when you look at the Tasman selections would boost the Loose Trio with Niko Jones and Terrell Peita which is perfect. Let me know what you think of all the other teams picks in the first 3 round.
