Got the win but it was a pathetic display against a team that was down 2 players and one we usually beat. Hard to get excited about the victory but we get the 2 points and we are tortured further into thinking we might make scrap through to the 8 come September.

How ironic that Blair would get binned in his 300th lol. OK, now you can fuck to the UK.

Meh...

That was a real bottom of the table game.. there wasnt much attack, if Titans hadnt lost 2 of their better players when they were getting on top I could totally see them racking up a score on the Warriors today.

I’m going a
D
We got the goods but lots of elements of that performance showed A) we’ve got talent that isn’t performing B) that we fade in and out of games with an amateur game-plan asa matter of course.
I won’t defend Blair perse but anyone know exactly what he got 10mins for?
I didn’t think the shot was too late or high. Just effective. And I didn’t think it was more than a penalty even if it was lte and cynical??

What a hit to finish off game 300 for Blair and start the celebrations early.

Tohu looks shot Papalii looks slow Burr our most threatening backrower, with nearly 100m post contact metres can someone put Ken in the pack.

If there are two in the tackle and one drops off, I thought you couldn't strip the ball? Have they changed that rule?

It was a meh win.

Our attack is just so slow! We really lack players with speed - RTS and Niko show glimpses but our game play is too much bash through the defence.

When we go against the grain good things happen - aka all the tries we scored today.

Not too bad defensively.

Not sure why they never go to the fucken right hand side. There was a set there where they were deadset I’m going left every single time.

Herbert has shown he can draw and pass or take on the line and score himself. Fus was the best finisher in the game last year this year he’s disappeared.

Makes sense Tohu been playing hurt he’s missed a step.

Blair...congrats on 300 bro, defensive beast tonight and unjustly sent off on a soft call.

Paasi was a beast. Ah Mau normal tradesman like performance.

Bunty didn’t play many minutes tonight? Hooker rotation confusing too - Luke was good and Lawton started us off well.

Just missing a step big time. And everything looks slow. But throw the ball around and try things, we get the tries we scored today.

...Meh.

I thought the one out hit ups for 70 mins was a master stroke by Kearney. I would like to see more offloads, but only by Tevaga.
Green was best on field with the explosive pace and swerve. Kearney thinking he may have found his new fullback.
Loved the 3 hooker rotation
Pure process at work.
Lawton was great. Would like to see a few less minutes from him in his second stint.
Good change up of goal kickers. Added a nice touch to the whole affair.

this margin better?
We got close to binning that game. Didn’t think we maintained intensity through the final quarter but they faded more. I’ll take the result. Don’t worry about that but I don’t think that was a display that had me thinking -“turnaround”
