There really has to be some key changes made by Cappy. If he doesnt quickly move to reassert his authority this week he may as well book a container to send his shit back home.

A few of the boys put in. A lot didnt. Time for the team leader to swing the axe and make a statement. That humiliating capitulation cannot go unpunished.

Maybe, just maybe, if the coach shows some balls the team might too...

Need a new lock and a new fullback for starters, Gubb or Sao could do the lock role and Lane onto the bench. Lisone can fuck off for a month after his opening debacle, it was match fixing stuff. Vete to replace him. Tevaga fourth man on bench.

Fullback, Fusitua was okay, but a new player might be just as good, probably not fair to debut someone at the back of these bludgers

Be nice to see Hurrell get a start but the centres are the least of the worries, so unless he wants to play wing…

Fusitua
Wright
Ayshford
Kata
Vatuvei
Leuluai
Johnson
Matulino
Luke
Vete
Thompson
Hoffman
Gubb

Tevaga
Sao
Lillyman
Lane

Pretty average looking group.

Unfortunately im pretty confident Cappy will essentially name the same side bar what hes forced to change through injury.
Each week he pretty much rolls out the same line of "I dont know what happened, we trained well but it just didnt happen this week. We just weren't good enough this week" and then repeats the same team hoping it will be different this time.
I dont know if hes naive or blissfully unaware but its now obvious that Cappy doesnt know how to fix this team.

Not wholesale changes, but changes where they need to be made.

Lautiiti in - experience, aggression, heart. He loves the warriors jersey, and will put in - just as he has done in reserve grade
Lane - another big body, knows enough of the structures by now (despite there being next to no structure out there anyway)
Hingano - long term prospect - been absolutely carving at reserve, Leulaui is not a 6, never has been.
Luke needs a fucking kick up the arse, not the marquee player we signed and has been so fucking average, give tevaga a go again, he showed amazing EFFORT
Allwood in for Wright, he legit offers nothing, whereas Allwood has been one of the best performers at Reserve

Maumolo as 18th - pushing Manu for the wing spot so hard, give Manu a fright, he's not what he used to be.

Take a look at the Knights, and Titans..terrible playing roster, yet go out every fucking week and give it their all, and are performing far better than our supposed "All star" team. Sure, they're one of the best squads on paper, ON PAPER. They are not combining, they do not work for each other.

Give these players a shot, they're not going to do any worse than what happened last night.

Oh, and Vete for Lisone, bit of a no-brainer this one. Lisone has so much to work on, and Vete should be there anyway.

Given they are travelling today and the need to name today he will name the same team as last week with changes for known injuries but the run out team will be different to that named

I will be seeing red if the same team that performed last night is listed for this weekend.

Bring in Hurrell, bring back Robson, bring in Ali I don't care, but make changes because a these fuckwits we call players need to be held accountable for that performance last night.

Senior players need to start spending time in reserve to know they are no invincible.

Enough with the excuses already.

We had a Monday game so I would expect the same team list as last week.

Would love to see some changes though,
