Are you serious have you watched their last 4 games. This is why warriors lose games like the Roosters, they look at the ladder, not the team and their ability.Really?
They are at the arse of the table for a good reason, they are playing shite football.

yeah 2 and 8, but they lost by 2 last week and played ok against us. They wont finish on spoon.
I agree but I think their last 4 weeks has been pretty good compared to the rest of the season. they have lifted. and yes i watch their games too.Have you watched them play?
Their attack in the 20 has been abysmal all year. Their forwards have been uninspired and lacking in any killer instinct.
Yes, I have watched them... I watch every game every week and they are shithouse.

If we didnt have this right edge with fusitua, we would be much the same, this is my main concern. We have no players in motion, we have no players running reverse angles with aggression. its a fine line between top and bottom in the nrl. all teams are full of class players. you cant right any team off just because they havnt had it together prior.
Who is our player with killer instinct?
thought u nailed the review until i saw your comment about Mannering. Hes good for at least one error per game now, and to do it on the line is unacceptable. Putting him in for 80 mins would be suicide.Not the greatest of games, but anything that takes us to 8 - 3 is fine by me. And remember when we couldn't win a damn game away from home? Now we're 4 - 1 : YES!
Should the margin have been bigger? Maybe. The Eels are a team that despite the evening effect of the salary cap look underpowered, are error-prone, take the wrong options and are short on attacking ideas, are low on confidence, and are playing even worse than we were at the low points of the past few years. So that kinda suggests we should have won big, plus we were coming off a big loss and that generally fires teams up. On the other hand cornered sides like the Eels playing for their season (which must be gone for good now) can raise their game on the day and bite you. Plus of course we were missing Shaun and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. All up, this was a game we were always likely to win. But we still had to go out and win it, so full marks for getting on with it, but you'd reckon a lot of other teams will be racking up the two points against the Eels, too.
Individuals? Our first sight of Beale - yes, good stuff, and adds to the D, no question. Hiku at full back - didn't know what to expect, but it worked, bar that mistake around the 60 minute mark getting bundled into touch which led to an Eels try. And Lino stood up again as he did earlier in the season when Shaun wasn't available. Paasi is effective. Issac just gets better and better, we're seeing the guy who was hugely impressive for the Rabbitohs doing the same for us. Time to get Mannering playing the 80 again, too good to be warming the bench.
Green marshalled the team very well. When we talk about the spine, a lot of the spotlight goes on the stars at 1, 7 and 9, but not enough on 6, and I thought Blake did really well tonight. I particularly liked his long touch finders, they gain us a lot of metres.
Also liked it when Fusitua and Maumalo take early carries after scrums: those guys are effectively another pair of forwards. And if Fusitua isn't the top try scorer in the NRL at the end of the season, I'll be mightily surprised.
Now need to break this WLWLW pattern and get our heads back into that WWWWW mentality we had at the beginning of the season. We showed some mental toughness when we were down to 12 men, which was good.
Rolling towards the 8 mates, rolling towards the 8...
I think when Nathan Brown and Rad Rad Raaaaaaa is back they will be winning more. They have had a good month. I dont think they will be in the 8 but I dont think they will be wooden spoon either.they are a team that started the season expecting to be in the mix for a premiership and got a major shock in the first few rounds when they realised they actually had to do a shitload more than turn up to win.
They are a soulless lot who don't play for each other, the second and third efforts are not there and I don't see it changing. Their halves are flat track bullies who crumble under pressure and their leaders are old and broken.
I don't see anything in their first 11 games that suggests to me they will be anywhere except the foot of the table come the finals.
