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...
Is being called "dumb" any worse than being calley "soft"? Sticky called his group soft after they lost a couple of close ones early in the season and the Raiders went on a little mini win streak after that. I wonder if Arthur is looking for the same effect?

I'm actually surprised the NRL gave them an exception for CNK when they had Beale and Gelling named in the 21. Maybe they're all bark and no bite until some club starts abusing the rule regularly.

Calling your players dumb publicly is an outrage. Calling them soft is one thing....they can do something about that....but calling them dumb has more depth of hurt to it...probably more truth to it....and an insult that probably had bad memories for some of these guys before they became public figures.

Many sports people feel dumb and use their physical talent to compensate.

Wrong insult, wrong group to use it on.

Really don’t know how to feel about this one- don’t think it’ll be the doom and gloom some are predicting, but I don’t think we are gonna put many points together also

We definitely have the pack to put the blowtorch to Parra, but will they turn up?? The pack will really have to dominate this one, because there will be a lack of fluency with half the spine out.

Hopeful of a win, but wouldn't be surprised at a loss. 6 points or under either way be my guess.

Good luck el capiton Blake Kakariki

It had to be when we play the biggest pack of cu**s in sydney.

I hate Parramatta
I hate the Warriors losing to Parramatta... which very well may happen with our injury list.

Next thing you know the entire sydney media will be all up on the Eels dick, Parra this, Parra that etc... never ending.
Parra already get too much coverage for what they produce on the field and we unfortunately look like we might lose to the cu**s,

hope we win.
but I hope parra lose more.

Lotta nervous nellies today aye lol ... personally I'm feeling quietly confident

After the Anzac Day ambush our team came out the next game & did a number on the Wigers

Last week we got bashed up front so I'm expecting our pack to respond & be fired up & ready to throw down on the Parra pack

We do that we win IMO

GO THE MIGHTY WARRIORS!!!

All comes down to the forwards really.

We have been bashed by Broncos, Roosters and Storm which has resulted in being our only losses this year.

We need to get on top of the Eels forwards early. If we allow them to establish a platform, Moses, Norman, Jennings, Gutherson, French will cut ribbons through us.

If it is us that can get on top, we already shown we can win this season with key players not there.

I dont think it will be an exhibition of awesomeness but I'm sure we can win. Unknown on the scoreline but I'm guestimating us by 2.

A soft man can always drink a cup of concrete, eat some Viagra, and harden the fuck up. But if you're bourn dumb.......

I woulda gone for Fusitua at FB and CNK at wing, I only watched CNK a couple of times this year but wasn't impressed with his D. So looking for you to step up this week Charnze, give it heaps.

Still confident, as long as our forwards roll their sleeves up we can win with ease, if Eels get parity in the forwards then we havent played to our potential and it might be tougher.
