i know it is a minor injury to Tohu Harris but...he's had a few of late...hope it doesn't affect his game like these things inevitably do when you have too many.

Knees are pretty important aye if you want to run around and hit people / get hit.

Starting to think that we will not see our best side in 2018 all at the same time....at all.

The painful truth is that our pack has been getting dominated so our offloads while still at a high frequency are at a low quality to flat footed players surrounded by opposition, or even to an offside team mate.

Harping on but until our pack wins the battle up front we're gana keep getting pumped like the useless summama biscuits we've been playing like.
True. Thing is, We won't win the battle up front with our forwards. Honest toilers. But to small to bend the line. Afoa does a good job with his leg drive. Paasi goes hard. But that's it.
That's why I mentioned support players hitting holes on either side of our known off loaders. 2nd phase play. We are small, But mobile. Not meeting the opposition in one off runs up the guts. Running them around.
Blair /Harris/Paasi/ Papalii /Afoa are more than capable to offload in traffic. We just don't see anyone running off them anymore. Shaun Johnson/Luke/Roger Tuivasa-Sheck/Fusitua/Ken/Kata/Hiku running off said players would be a nightmare for opposition teams IF they bothered to do more often.

The lack or serious support runners (not obvious decoys with their hands not ready lol) means our forwards are less likely to bend the line because there is no indecision in defenders to exploit: they can just number up and wrestle.

It’s one thing the warriors haven’t done well in years...

I actually watched an old game where from our own goal line it went

1. Wade McKinnon
2. Manu.
3. Price.
4. Lauaki with the offload to McKinnon running hard in support into a gap stepping the fullback and going all the way.

It was vs the Roosters and it was a fucking glorious 100 metre set ending with a gorgeous try.

The difference I suppose is the speed of our play the ball was light speed compared to the Melbourne wrestle fest we have now.

Wade McKinnon was our best support players always running through looking for someone to offload to him.
