Apparently we have all been pronouncing Suaalii's name wrong now.

It's no longer Su-a-li but Swa-li-i or something like that.
Yeah the same li'i pronunciation as Josh and Isaiah Papali'i apparently

Why the **** don't these players make it known when they first hit first grade. Or is it the club's media manager's fault?
Sometimes the players aren't sure themselves. I think that is what happened with Cotric and someone else I can't remember.
Once their name starts getting mentioned their distant families may reach out and say hey they are saying our name wrong or something.

Last names are weird. My last name is Adames and most people would read that as Adams but it's pronounced more like ad-damez. I only know that pronouncation due to my grandfather but if I had no contact with him I would probably just say Adams. Mine is a pretty simple last name to correct/confirm pronouncation, but with all these pacific islander name and how larger their families are I can imagine it would be hard to confirm the correct pronouncation. Even this way may be wrong.

Like Junior Paul-o? Now AKA Junior Pow-low, Par-lor, Par-low, Pow-lor .. Brandy sounds like its Bar-low.

Can't we accept white Aussie guys can't pronounce **** the same?

I got the impression it's not that the version we know is wrong, but the new version is the family version and he would prefer to use it as a show of respect.

We'd need a TAFE course to get all of the players names right these days... us Aussies are rubbish with anything non anglo-saxon

Interesting he’s gone Garrick to Val so we both have Val now. He’s also gone Crichton to Nikora

Probably worried about the Cows racking up a cricket score against the Warriors. Angus to Nikora? That's a strange one.

Nearly forgot I need to buy a winger haha

To win I’ve got
Hynes+Sivo+McInnes+new winger+50 points vs his DBrown+Nikora+Ronnie+Manu+Doueihi

I can’t afford Manu and I don’t think Doueihi scores enough to warrant trying to match.
I’m thinking gamble on Suaalii to outscore Manu…

(We both have Hynes but he’s my captain, Munster C already played for him)

Think I’m gunna get beat by updates. After another game has updated I’m sitting only 2 points clear, no unique players to play.

Good thing I went Suaalii instead of trying to match with Doueihi…. same **** score

For the those* playing along at home the updated points to Doueihi have ****ed me.
Losing by 6, hoping bulk unicorn points still to come for Hynes, not sure if that game has updated yet

Suaalii was a dogshit choice as it turns out haha

How are those still alive in our comp going?

(*I know this is nobody, just ranting haha)

Did not see Suaalii being so poor. Or Manu. Or Teddy not getting 150... Totally screwed me.
And my opponent switched from Teddy to Nicho at the last second. Which apparently doesn't update in the app... Was expecting it but couldn't see it. Would have won otherwise.

Just a little bitter 😅

Can't for the life of me work out who your team is - nobody in the Sharks Forever league matches these details?
