Thread to share your thoughts on the Round 24 game between the New Zealand Warriors and Penrith Panthers after the match. Name your Man of the Match, discuss the coach, captain, starting team, bench, opposition, game tactics, substitutions, errors (or lack thereof), penalties (or lack thereof) highs, lows, refs etc.

Dont forget to rate the players...
Smashed the arrogance out of these pretenders but lets not beat around the bush- Penrith are pretenders. They are not in the same league as Souths, Melbourne of the Roosters. The way they are playing Penrith will be bundled out in week 1. It's almost like the 2012 Warriors- so much media attention on how much 'talent' and 'potential' they have has gone to the playing group's head. Most overrated team in the 8 IMO. The real test will come if we come up against the big 3 again.

Harris, Hiku and Fusitua- that's the best attacking edge we've got. Even if Beale is fit, don't fuck that edge combination up. Even if it isn't the most optimal defensive unit, it's our best attacking option against the top 4 sides. It will most certainly be too much to handle for the edge 8 teams that we come up against.

Ken was a bit quiet tonight IMO. Maybe its because of all the penalties we got inside our half that negated his running contributions.

Bit disappointed about our end to the halves. We got a bit lazy towards the end of the 1st and 2nd halves. That won't do during finals but I think its a very fixable problem.

We seem to hit back really well when we lose so here's hoping we lose to Canberra next week.
