Pisses me off how much hate Kata cops - still young still has a shit load to learn. Runs hard, not as bad on defense as he's touted to be - he rushes in but that's what happens when you learn off Manu.

Those who compare to Hurrell - come back when he can play all 26 games for 80 mins.

Well said young man!. Don't look at the players around him, He would be a superstar in the roosters setup.

Gutted to lose that one, but at least the Warriors finally showed a bit of heart, spirit & character which has been sorely lacking in the last two months

If only for some better handling in the first half & that solitary mistake in the second half & we could have really stuck one up the Dogs, oh well it is what it is

I'd like to wish all of the Warriors departing players & the Dogs Frank "The Tank" Pritchard all the best for the future & roll on 2016

I've been listening to this old rock classic all day with the Warriors in mind so ...

Take it away Alice In Chains



well it's over now ... I'm still alive somehow ... when it's all gone wrong ... it's hard to be so strong


Another year, The same Feeling, When will this change!!!!.

I agree, the Warriors cannot be expected to defend a set after a penalty, they just can't do it
They defended plenty of sets off of penos tonight, granted Bulldogs attack was pretty rusty. You want them to defend against blatant forward passes as well?

Was great to see a lot of heart out there tonight apart from the silly errors and penalties we were right in the game

To come from 10 down showed they wanted it lolohea and Vete have been great finds and are going to be stars hope the Warriors don't let them get away

Silly errors cost us again. Story of our season really. From the rookies to the veterans they all made them.

So pissed cause we should have won that. I appreciate the Doggies were off their game but thats no reason not to stamp your foot on their throat.

Glad we didnt lose by the huge margin most were predicting but still bitter that we didnt close it out.

The refs did their best to get the Doggies the win with some really shit penalties. The Josh Jackson forward pass that led to James Grahams try was a kick in the teeth. To get penalised for an involuntary tackle when the whole comp does it was pathetic. Just like when we got penalised for shielding the catcher when teams have been doing it all season. Some real BS right there.

Good game from Tuimoala Lolohea and Bodene Thompson. Bar his errors I thought Mason Lino looked good too.

Solomone Kata is looking more and more out of his depth every week. His defence really is crap. Even when he makes the right call his arms leading approach see's his short ass fended more times than not. Dont need another 10 years of soft edge defence do we?

Albert Vete is a beast. He's going to be a cornerstone of our prop rotation for years to come if the club dont lose him.

Wonder where this fighting spirit has been the last few games? Still injury ravaged but the heart was there which counts for a lot.

Another season done. Another season no finals footy. Gonna be a LONG off season...
Yeah I saw it all the same way. At Kata's size he can't afford that technique. But I saw him and Chad as a real target this year. Their size and technique was never going to stand up to better teams.

I reckon a solid defender between Konnie and Manu is a must. I'm sure that's what Allwood and Wright were supposed to be. I'm tempted to put Mannering there and let Hoffman/Thompson school Benry with RFM off the bench.

Overall I think we are still short a big bopper prop to intimidate the opposition. Mutts can't take on the top 4 packs by himself. Asofa-Solomona would be ideal or Galloway.

The balance of the pack at finals time will be critical. Mark my words.

totally agree sign those 2 long term, Love Vete a big forward with some ticka & Lolohea Has skills, Get him at 6 with johnson. Not TL

Without a few dodgy ref calls for staying too long in the tackle we would have won

The positive is that it can be fixed. He has the heart to do it unlike Carlos Daley who was scared of the contact. Just needs to watch the Roosters centres technique and practice it with every single tackle during the off season...

Sounds like a warriors excuse to me. We aren't the only side that gets bad calls. What about the ball control?.

Mate, you can have shit refs and still make errors, they aren't mutually exclusive.

Pointing out the fact they are barely competent and very inconsistent (the refs) isn't making excuses for the Warriors losing, friend shouldn't have thrown that hard a pass, and Lisone doesn't need to be charging at it like he's returning a kick off. Happy?

It's just the little things the rushing out of defence and taking no one consistently and not learning from it. Even on attack the try he scored the easier option would have been to pass to his winger who was free, instead he took the harder option of going himself.
its not just him aye...wright doesnt rush off the line and Rona doesnt score in the first half...
Same with Manu and Konrad...

I know your referring to Carlos but Laurie Daley was a great player so should probably be disassociated from a guy who wasn't that good in the end.

Hugh McGahan might read this and go insane
