Ligi Sao had another big game.
His motor is huge

Never got to see it as a Warrior.
Only fan in the stand really.

Satae was a handful,post contact was huge
This was always going to happen. Ligi Sao got a bum deal with us. I know its a weaker comp but he had a lot to offer. Satae would have done better at another NRL side I suspect.

Sao did well for us in patches. The problem was it was only patches.

2018 he was great for us at the start of the season. Then some of the bigger names came back and he got relegated. He should of been brought back up when we started to struggle late in the season.

I disagree. Sao was fantastic for us in the start of 2018 where he filled in for Mannering at 13. He was and still is a very capable player. I feel his lack of speed was always held against him. He was the slowest in the team...

Toronto falling apart already. Beaten again tonight and looked knackered at the finish. They’ve got a hell of a job on to turn this bad start around
Too much expectation on SBW to instantly perform 6+ years after his last stint.
Great player, but at 34/35 years old - was always going to take some time for him to find his groove.

They’ve tended to look solid enough first 20-30mins but just can’t keep with other teams

Anthony Gelling has been stood down by Warrington on suspicion of wounding with intent. A police investigation is under way. That could be it for his career if he’s found guilty.

He’s been interviewed by plod and is on conditional bail. Separate to that Warrington have started an investigation into his behaviour away from the club

Not looking good

It's strange how many supposedly shrewd, hard nosed businessmen make risky decisions when they become chairmen of sports teams by underwriting 'statement' signings such as that of SBW, when the biggest and best statement of all would be a top half finish.

I don't have a problem with the SBW signing - he's a drawcard.
They should have recruited better in other areas as well. You can't rely on a semi-retired player to make you competitive.

Hard when they don't even have a reserve grade to pull players from.

Wakefield’s surprise win over Warrington is bad new season for Toronto. If the Wolfpack get relegated will the club survive?
