Still think we will win - Cowboys were my "other" team and its a shame they are what they are at the moment - apart from Taumalolo the forwards don't really worry me. Don't know what happened to Ethan Lowe, was one of their better forwards (and could kick) in years past but seems to have slipped down the rankings - Coen Hess hasn't been setting the world on fire either. Warriors by 8.

Yeah Lowe was good but he had a bad back injury that he has never really recovered from.

What is with the obsession for Lawton. He is rubbish. A hooker that cannot hit the chest of a forward/playmaker should learn another trade
Heck if you would like to see how good he is, replay the match of Warriors Vs Roosters. We got thumped 32-0

I believe even one of the games he played that bad that he got hooked and Jazz Tevaga was replaced for him
I recall Lawton was one of the only players that could come out of that effort against the Roosters with any credibility. The wheels fell off after he was subbed off. If anything Kearney took him off too early. Glad to see he's still in the 17.

No inside word just the usual forum written diarrhoea. Pretty telling that only him and Vete are left from the drugs scandal and neither of them have kicked on.
It’s not like he hasn’t been given a chance to kick on though...hell, they even re-signed him earlier this year.
Says to me that the club has moved on from that episode.

Sorry - can’t talk to you, you and some of your mates’ avatar is shit...

Yeah I get that. Some just are more prepared to take the risk haha.

And who knows? It might look like this for a whole series or even a ten year domination dynasty.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck named to return in Townsville

Captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is again in line to return from an ankle injury for the Vodafone Warriors’ 15th-round NRL encounter with the North Queensland Cowboys at 1300SMILES Stadium in Townsville on Friday (6.00pm kick-off local time; 8.00pm NZT).

While he was included when the side was originally named for last week’s clash against Manly, the 25-year-old was subsequently ruled out with the versatile Peta Hiku again filling the fullback’s position.

However, Vodafone Warriors head coach Stephen Kearney said Tuivasa-Sheck’s hopes of playing this week were more encouraging after today’s field session.

"He has a few more boxes he needs to tick but he's certainly better than he was last week," he said.

Kearney has listed the same starting line-up initially chosen for the Manly match. Hiku would again be in line to switch to fullback with Gerard Beale coming into the centres should Tuivasa-Sheck be forced to miss the contest on Friday night.

The extended interchange bench includes one change with centre Anthony Gelling added as a replacement for front rower Sam Lisone.

The Vodafone Warriors remain in fourth spot on 20 points heading into the 15th round, level on points with South Sydney and two behind St George Illawarra and Penrith.

The 9-4 start to the season, the second best in the club’s history, contrasts with a grim first half of the campaign for the Cowboys.

They started the year as one of the title favourites after being beaten in the 2017 grand final but have won just four times in 14 matches so far, including only two from seven in Townsville.

Yet their record and the fact they sit 14th in the competition is of no consequence to the Vodafone Warriors as they contemplate one of their most difficult away assignments.

The overall record between the two clubs is dead even – 19 wins a piece – but it is tilted heavily in the Cowboys’ favour at 1300SMILES Stadium (12-5). Of the last 12 matches there since 2002, the Vodafone Warriors have won just once, 20-16 in 2014.

Since starting 2018 with five straight wins, they have had four in their last eight outings with wins following losses.

Wing David Fusitua marked his 70th career appearance last Saturday with a hat-trick to take him into an outright lead in this year’s NRL try-scoring stakes with 15 in 13 games. He now boasts 47 tries overall giving him a strike rate of a try every 1.48 games.

I think we’ll win but we should be wary of this one. Cowboys have dropped those bums Coote and O’Neill plus a couple others I’m pretty sure. Still need to bring our A game.

Do you think Jazz is better ?

if so why ?

Jazz is not a hooker, so you cannot compare the two, but for a backup hooker Lawton to be hooked and replaced by Jazz that is not even a Hooker anymore says something
The point is next year should Luke not be there and Lawton is his replacement, you will see a complete drop in Warriors
