The flipside is that the Samoan team players hate Matt Parish so they are only too happy to jump ship the other way to the Kiwis. As soon as it gets out about Parish it'll be ugly. Only a matter of time till someone speaks out...
Can you elaborate at all on what Parish has done Welly? We're not talking #metoo are we

Similar to the World Cup. Once this Tongan side gets momentum they are hard to stop. The Samoans like the Kiwis are struggling to wrestle the momentum off them.

The Tongans also have the halves and outside backs to take advantage of the damage their forwards are creating in the middle.

Leilua is a liability, how many mistakes and penalties did he give away when Samoa finally got some field position? There must be a better Samoan centre in the NRL somewhere.

Has that been officially confirmed? (Tonga/Aus). I've heard nothing.
Nah you're right actually just had a quick look, it's still in the works and details need to be nutted out before August 30. But Tongan coach believes it will go ahead, and be held at Suncorp.

We play Aus in Auckland Oct 14.

Assuming? Go watch the end of any of his games last year. Not assuming anything. Its widely known. I even vaguely remember Fusitua talking about how convincing his approach was.

Im a Warriors fan. I spent 6 years looking stupid. No biggy.
You basically are if all you are going off is him talking to players after the game. Thats like me saying cameron smith was talking to johnson. I think he's trying to convince him to play fo australia lols.

Voss Anasta Parker and Matt Russel commentators on this game on Foxtel. Voss knows most of these players well from doing the Warriors on Sky.
Cam imagine how bad Gould would be on 9 and Sky Nz . Gus should retire from tv

Cameron Smith didnt get Shaun Johnson to play for Aussie.

If you have watched the body language and the way he throws his arm right around the players shoulder and leads them to an empty part of the field you wouldnt be defending it as false. I remember watching him do it to Fusitua and commented at the time how slimey and dodgey it looked.

U seem to be the only 1 who believes he is clean from the Tongan exodus.

Is that you Mrs Taumalolo?

Good to see Samoa come alive again , hopefully they can make it interesting.
Has NZ got 9s coverage? I’ve got Braif and Voss rather than Gould

Go Samoa! Back to cheering them on, but also not going to stop praying for Fafita's legs to snap.

What a spectacle, nevermind the score that was a great game of footy to watch. Crowd literally roaring from whistle to whistle. Nothing overly dirty as such, just 2 teams wanting to play fast, physical footy. Pretty stoked with our Samoan Warriors, they all contributed well but our man Bunty took the chocolates the man is a beast.

Any chance the Warriors hair dresser could get in touch with the Samoan hair dresser?? Because for whatever reason Gavets hair managed to stay tied up all game.

Apparently one of the Fijian players cut all of the teams hair before the game-maybe we can tap him on the shoulder...

gg, Samoa came back strong but I'd back Tonga to take world no1 spot sooner or later.

See you at 8am folks

Hope the Warriors boys come back to the club fizzing and in form, especially Gavet. Bunty plays like a forward that's 10kgs heavier, his post contact metres were impressive again.
