I have never seen a team that can switch off like these Warriors. In the first half they were so dominant it was embarrassing. They were 20 - 0 up and ahead on all the stats. Phil Gould must have been on hyper stomach acid pills.
Then it got to 8 minutes before half time. Time to ease off until half time girls. Shaun Johnson
does three absolutely nothing fifth tackle kicks letting them back to the 30 metres on the first tackle. Then the forwards ease off on the tackles and the post contact metres start to hurt. They hold out the first two sets then on the last tackle of the third set an absolutely nothing dribble kick gets ignored and Mansour goes in the corner. I was really pissed off and SK
must have been as well.
Then they come out fired up like SK
has really given it to them and get out to 36 - 4 and time to turn off again girls. They were bloody lucky the Panthers are that useless they could only score twice, other teams could have caught up. I remember looking at the time and scoreboard and yes there was time for 4 tries.
When this teams ties it bootlaces nobody, and I mean nobody can live with them, they are a grand final side. Heyzuss spare me though when the girls go to sleep they are wooden spooners. The only thing I will give them this season is they did fight back after they had pissed their pants against the Bulldogs.
I was thinking of Cronulla, a very ordinary team really that just does not stop. The Warriors on the other hand have so much bloody talent they are in a different league, but they do clock off at the most frustrating times.
If a part time observer like me can see it, so can other the top 7 coaches. Mind you what they do about it is a good question as well because if the team does not clock off, you kiss your arse good bye.
