I agree

While I agree that Fusitua will play centre or wing long term, I suspect that it will be (or at least) should be on the right side due to his strong right arm carry and the fact that Kata seems to have locked up left centre.
Personally I don't see Lolohea as a half, at least alongside Johnson in this team, and therefore see him as a centre/wing but with a skill set that more closely resembles a centre. The fact that I mentioned Lolohea as a half earlier is because of what the club has said regarding his future, which I don't necessarily agree with.
My overall point is there has been unnecessary shuffling of the backline since Roger Tuivasa-Sheck got injured which I don't think has helped cohesion of the backline and has been largely aimless. If you're fine with that then all good.
Yeah Roger Tuivasa-Sheck's injury was a disaster in retrospect.

I think that if Loloheia had been able to fill that void the selections would have been less chaotic.

Leuluai missing the start of the season, Robsons defence. Then the whole team produced that complete choke at the end of the year.

Started in pre-season - remember all the BS talk when we got thrashed by the Dragons and how everyone was saying preseason meant nothing... well guess what - we're still no better 25 rds later...

An epic failure the season has been.

Bro that's the funniest shit ever.

Oh the bitter sweet of this team naming.

Stacey Jones has picked this team by criteria of exclusion.

Who is our current main strike weapon besides Kata? It's Fusitua.

Fusitua is a solid fullback but hasn't scored any tries there if my memory serves me correctly. I would say Fusitua is almost as lethal as Kata from 20m out. Is Lolohea? No.

LoLo isn't a good fullback, but he's better than the next guy - which is probably Wright.

The club are going for the win this weekend, so they've put a genuine try scorer at 4. I'm fine with it.

Again, for the record, I'm not a cappy fan and this season has been disastrous. I'm trying to look at it from more than just an angry fans perspective.

Not fazed with the team named can't see us winning anyway. Its all on the reserves now. I'm sure gavet would of been dropped to strengthen the reserves he's played there the majority of the season anyway
Well lets hope our ISP outplays our first grade team. Plenty of guys that shouldve gotten another call up this season... Palavi, Afoa, Lino, Gavet, Charnze is not bad too

Lolohea played waaaaayyy too casual. Youd think a decider game would ramp up your intensity and willingness to win. That time when tui jumled out of Fusitua's way for the ball at the back, then Shaun Johnson gives a dumb pass to ayshford... like 20 metres out lol... smh Shaun Johnson

So what Cappy is saying is that James Gavet is the only player that deserved to be drop after that utter load of shit we had to watch, and the crossfield crabbing useless Tui get to go to fullback where is is totally shit, Manu gets to hide behind an injury so he doesn,t lose his shit again on twitter because he is a highly paid athlete and he can't cope with the pressure but will still collect his pay at the end of the week bullshit ,and as for Mutts and Jake those two goats couldn't bend a pipe cleaner ,for fucks sake make some of these piss poor excuses for professional athletes accountable better still just forfeit the game you utter embarrassments. Sorry if this offends anyone but enough is enough.

Fire up mate! Love it. Can't say anything you've said is un reasonable..

I would be in favor of giving Cappy 1 more year, if only he stopped doing dumb shit with the bench, and his mind numbing backline chopping/changing.. He just changes his mind every second week, Lolohea wasn't up to it 2 weeks ago, and we all agreed. Now he takes over Fusitua's spot at fullback? Does my head in.

Manu actually isn't hiding behind an injury - according to a friend of my who was one of the trainers for the under 20's on the weekend and was in the changing room with the NRL side after the game, Manu injured his sternum during the second half on the game against the Tigers. It's similar to the injury he received last year against the Sharks.

As for losing "his shit again", the circumstances surrounding what caused that outburst and now so different there is no way it would happen this time.

Personally, the attributes that made him one of the most feared players in the NRL (Brent Tate said as much when he was with the Cowboys) has now reduced. I think David Fusitua is really the only player in the club who could replace him.

Lolohea running the ball back from fullback reminds me of Lance Hohaia. Fusitua running the ball back reminds of a fullback. What an absolute shambles it has been watching Lolohea play every position on the field. They got so shifty they're even shifting him mid game. Epic fail.

The reason Lolohea went to fullback is due to David Fusitua being stuffed. Watching the game he was barely able to carry the ball back in some instances, I think they did this switch to give him some rest out on the wing for a few sets. It was nothing other than that

Do not read this the wrong way. I am trying to voice my opinion as to why cappy's plan is wrong and flawed
What is a joke, is that our backs are not present in key moments similar to the Fusitua breakaway on the weekend because they are to gassed from carting the ball up out of our own end as per "Cappy's Plan". The backs are not present as a support player for key offloads up the middle. The forward issue which warriors have impacts the entire squad and the natural job role of each player. The fatigue placed on our backs due to carting the ball up probably also links to mental focus spells. ie drop a ball in key attacking sets

View NRL as a pyramid, the two largest base items of this pyramid would be Defense & Forwards. At present both of those items are missing, however I believe the major item causing our defensive lapses is fatigue. Fatigue can be linked to our forwards. If you do not execute your job role as a forward (ie you need to average "X" amount of run meters per game with "X" amount of errors) then the workload has to be adjusted for Warriors to reach the oppositions end. This is where we witness Cappy's Plan, backs must cart the ball up.

I think the Warriors Management for once need to be honest with us fans. There is a problem which needs to be faced and assurances need to be met so we are not faced with this predicament year after year

anyone trying to take away positives are only fooling themselves.

Started in pre-season - remember all the BS talk when we got thrashed by the Dragons and how everyone was saying preseason meant nothing... well guess what - we're still no better 25 rds later...

Not only were we shit in pre-season, dont forget we lost 8 in a row before the season ended and we had Luke showing up like a fatten Turkey for Christmas - all under the stewardship of Cappy and people STILL want to entertain the idea of keeping him for ANOTHER year????!! especially after the performance of last 3 weeks - which looked no different to our preseason form?????

someone is seriously taking the piss with this club if we keep Cappy.

Seriously.....

Sorry mods. Feel free to shift this to the Sack Cappy - the guy cant coach thread. Cheers.

Wright playing god give me a break. Im totally at the bottom of the well now and 2017 is a distant haze but hey as a fan since the beginning i will end up watching and dreaming and swearing. Then i will wake up and it would have been a mirage until i see J WRIGHT on the wing and Cappy blowing kisses to the crowd you loser. Sorry guys my stress levels are on red alert. Come on 2017 i need you now.

Second half of that interview seems to give the impression that he will be staying however there will be other changes in the making of the coaching structure.

For all the criticism he does seem to be a nice guy, and does genuinely seem to have a passion to better this club - whether that is working on the field is up for conjecture.
