Don't worry Eels fans. You got this.

Just go through your training moves and our sleepy fuckers will let you score on every second play.

Eels now favourites in the odds, game being played in Sydney, Warriors without key players.

We’ll probably win it after all that.

Considering we're without Shaun Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, I'm probably more confident than I should be.

I haven't been all that impressed with the Eels attack this year, and think they're prone to running out of ideas if they don't score in the first few sets (hmm, sound like any other team you know of? )

Hoping that Blair gets a nice shot on Moses early to rattle him.

Offload when right
Run hard all night
And maybe we gots this one

Give it all and you can have a rest up next week.

We will be right but still feel just a tad nervous Green to have a cracker of a game :);):)

Welp, fingers crossed this isn't a total shit show. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Shaun Johnson being out is a mortal blow to my morale though. We will need to REALLY step up in defence because I don't know how much points we have in us.

Crucial game? Our good start is slipping, a loss tonight and we could be 7th by the end of the round if the favorites win the other games. Boys need to get up, everyone in the 17 will need to do their job. The Eels have't been very good, but they have had some close losses, we don't grind well in Sydney.

If you want your confidence boosted, we shouldn't win this game, Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck out, away from home, on a short turn around, which means we probably will win.

I'd like to see Fusitua at the back. He's that good.

Anyhow. We still have strike power but it will again not be our best line up.

Such is sport.

Important variables (unknons) = will our team turn up with the right attitude?

Do we feel like tackling and kicking off all night?

I reckon the team has known about Roger Tuivasa-Sheck's baby watch for months. Well I seriously hope so to enable more practice time for the combinations.

I expect a small crowd tonight so hope we can still give our best playing in front of a tumbleweed and a cricket.

WLWLWLW. We got this. Janfin for mine and bookie engaged.

Big games from Harris and Blair I reckon after getting pummeled last week.

Fusitua to fullback and CNK to wing or maybe Hiku to wing and Beale to centre. Who knows? SK probably doesn't know himself yet.

A Rangatira shouldn't ask anything of his warriors that he himself isn't prepared to do....
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has proved this with his body on the line mentality this year,100%.....
To establish a culture,whanau comes 1st!!!! ALWAYS.........

Now its up to the rest of our squad to keep there momentum building.....
Kiakaha boys......

So with the team being named can they have up until a certain time to change? I read that Lawton/Beale drop out and the bench is Satae/Gavet/Mannering/Tevaga. :nailbiting::nailbiting:
I believe the makeup of the team can change up until kick off from the 18-19 players listed, I could be wrong however.
CNK should be more than capable of doing a good job if called upon.

How will the Eels players react to Arthur calling their plays "dumb" in the press conference last week? Publically calling out your team can be risky...

Warriors by 6. And some Warrior to bring back the "rock-a-bye-baby" try celebration...
