I'm against the contrary.

Last week's game left a bad taste in my mouth. Not so much this week.

Defense was improved for the most part, particulary the first 50 Mins of the game. By this, I'm not saying our defense was good - to be fair it was still rather shit, Edges still caused issues - but there was improvement from last week (before Ayshford and Manu went off) - more communication and positing between the middle and outside men.

Issac Luke showed at times what he can bring to this team - before injuries and fatigue we had it over the Broncs forwards. The go-forward off quick play of the balls was the answers to our prayers. Need that all day every day, not just in spurts.

Lolohea was sound. A few silly errors - blame Shaun Johnson - but was very involved. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck injected himself mote too. Need more link play though. Kata too - some big 1 on 1 tackles - Roberts who?

This wasn't an Shaun Johnson game because of how we were playing before the injuries. Didn't need magic, we just we went through the process. Not sure about his repetitive bombing though...

All in all - I'm not worried. Wasn't like we were to introduce 2 players and we automatically become top 4 contenders.
It's about changing the attitude and culture of the team as a whole, tonight showed progress.

Still a long way to go, but a step in the right direction.

Better performance but we need better plays.
Shit chip n chase was around when i played.

We were down to 2 on the bench.
But has anyone seen Shaun been missing last 2 rounds.
Luke couldn't play 60 mins let alone 80.
Ashford did okay while on field.
Hurrel back next week .

I think we were so much better this week.
We just have to chase the ball more.

Im actually not upset about this loss, there was heaps of improvement all round from last week ,I think the fatigue got to them in the end
I don't like Shaun Johnson at 6, seems like he's not getting the ball enough
Tui had an off night, Hoffman was shite
Gavet and Bodene are my favorite warriors atm!
Kata was surprisingly good, lots of enegery and solid on D

Big improvement by the warriors, some of the boys were actually jogging to the line rather than walking.

WE SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HARD

We could easily have dropped our bundle in defense in the second half but we kept pushing, just poor individual lapses letting in points.

Improved defence this week but that alleyway on the left hand after Jeff Robson is unacceptable. People are scoring touch tries through there.

Can anybody say why the fuck Issac Luke is so unfit? He's gone from an 80 minute player to being completely gassed after 50. Seriously WTF! I know he came back 6 kilos overweight but to be so underdone when he actually came back to preseason early is fucked. There has to be something we dont know.

I still feel it has something to do with his baby being born early, and in NICU. That there after seeing a photo on his instagram mid week would play with someones mind who doesn't play sport. You have to imagine he's going through something big time.

Better performance considering the 2nd half we had 15 players.

Pressure starting to build at 0-2.

Interesting to see what happens next week vs Storm

Poor fringe defence leading to soft tries. A penalty or penalties for failing to pack the scrum in time. A couple of knock on's from the captain.


Leading to another loss. With the coach at the post match press conference coming up with the same excuses. Me venting on the forum saying to myself f**k it I'm over this. Media speculation bagging the team and calling for McFadden to be sacked.

Ultimately leading to me watching the team hoping against hope we might win against the Storm. Only to be disappointed yet again

Rinse and repeat for the next 24 rounds.

There's a quote I live and die by workwise - "the standard you walk past is the standard you set". In other words, if you see something thats wrong, don't stop it, then others will repeat it.

They were not as bad as last week, because they were against a better side tonight. They have talent to burn. Sam Lisone was dynamite and then goes missing. If only all the forwards had the ticker of Thompson, Mannering and and Gavet. No matter what anybody says Cappy isn't giving these guys a suitable game plan. JD was right to swap Tompkins for Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. He can't tackle either.

Jeff Robson I would change him for lolhea and give him a few weeks with Johnson his speed In the middle might help with the defense cause robson leaves a tunnel for them to go though also we need Vete

Getting very sick of Losing :(
Better effort but still not good enough.
Few random thoughts
-Johnson needs the ball more
-Thought Kata stepped up
-Roger Tuivasa-Sheck looked to get more involved but how shit is his defense?
-Hoffman is just going backwards since becoming captain don't know if he deserves to be in the team ATM
-Bodenes a shining light
-Lolohea crumbles when he loses confidence

U can give them what ever plan u want but once it gets out on the field the players plsy it like they see it.
Gordon Tallis said before the game on pre game tv ......we never came in at full time and said what a magnificent game plan that was.
