Watching that game made me feel worse. The Roosters are without Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, James Maloney, Mitchell Pearce, Daniel Tupou, Michael Jennings and Jared Warea-Hargraeves. They had a young squad playing today. We on the hand have improved our position, played pretty much our best available line up and still get wasted...

The Rabbits game was what would have happened to us if we were playing anyone other than the Tigers, Knights, Titans.

They would never have let us come back in the second half like the Tigers did.
 
Thrilled for Agnatius.....I posted here a while back that he would be a player the Warriors would offer huge money to get back one day......

Ran over one hundred and eighty meters tonight against a weak Knights side.


He tried too hard in his debut here.....risky offload.....but that guy has been busting his balls to be an NRL player from the fringes for a while now.

He's found a happy home in Aussie and he will be chased hard by the Kiwis management this year.....he must be the most multi skilled prop in the NRL just now.

If he stays with Tonga I'll be over the moon for them.


What a player.

What a player.
REALLY happy he's kicked on and doing so well. He's a great kid too - very respectful and a just a decent young man. So happy for him and his family - hopefully his older bro Samasoni will get a break one day.

I don't know about that.

When we get a roll on, I don't think there's a team in the comp that can stop us. But that isn't, and has really never been, the issue. The issue, is us stopping them. And often enough it's not even particularly good attack that we're dealing with - it's just our utterly woeful defense.

Iggy is a real success story. Of all the Warriors he was the guy I admired the most because of the effort he put into being a Warrior. He was on a third tier contract getting $10K to train just as hard as the 2nd tier boys. Having a young family he also had to work a fulltime job. When the Warriors took control of the NSW Cup team the training went from night time to day. Iggy was then having to take time off work to train as well as the time he was already taking off to travel to Australia.

When the Warriors released him he got a training contract with the Titans which basically means we'll provide you lunch. He left his partner and child here while he pursued his dream. First few months he was catching the bus to training and back and sleeping on the floor of old teammate's Siuatonga Likiliki's flat.

To see him flourish over there makes my heart smile. Couldnt have happened to a nicer more hard working bloke. No second year syndrome for him...

Was there any reason why the Warriors didn't persevere with Paasi, the surely didn't release him on his one bad game after he'd been such a gun for Keebra, the 20s and then the Vulcans?

The Likiliki brothers have always coasted on their natural ability and neither of them have an NRL contract now. Mafa looked like Jabba the Hutt in the last NSW cup game I saw him play for the Knights.
