Well we Warrior'd that one up good an proper didn't we, send us to Perth already.

Papali'i and Jazz please no more, my eyes can't handle the pain. Lost all go forward once our best prop went off with an HIA.
is that a new verb - to Warrior? defined as to lose your head when all around are losing their's and thus to contrive a loss from an eminently winnable position.

Stats time
Our possession was 57% and we still couldn't win.
Our set distance murdered their so called monster pack...but we still couldn't win. Our yardage dropped off when Ken left the field though. I have to say Brisbane have wasted their overs on that pack. No doubt there.
Jazz made 72 tackles and ran 22 time for 184 metres. He is beyond any criticism people. More like him we would get somewhere.
Papaili is just a kid but he ran 12 for 88 metres and made 50 tackles for 4 missed. He is getting into Jazz territory.
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck ran 367 metres, which is fantastic, but he is not a captain. He could have saved the game when Luke got bounced by that ball but he was walking and Boyd kept running. I was disgusted, absolutely. There is nothing that pisses me off more than seeing any player walking when the ball is still alive. Maybe if he stopped trying to be a prop he would have more energy. If SK was going to blame Herbert for last week, he can blame Roger Tuivasa-Sheck tonight. Rant over :mad:
Lisone have they resigned this useless prick? 6 runs for 39 metres FFS!!! 8 tackles for one missed. Thank heyzeuss he isn't paid as much as Blair but he needs to be sent to ESL.
Blair What a useless bastard. Tonight he ran 17 times for 188 metres and made 33 tackles for 3 missed. That is what an $800k prop should do. If he had played like that for the rest of the year we might have got somewhere. Something is not right with that prick. Rant over.
Bunty As usual 7 runs for 70 metres and 22 tackles for 1 missed. He is a pretty reliable pro is our Bunty.
Paasi Dropped his lip once for that first try but played ok apart from that. 14 runs for 135. 37 tackles although 6 missed, including a try.
LAM 13 runs for 137 metres against a monster pack. Well done.
Burr 8 runs for 68 meters...but he is cheap and supports Green well. 33 tackles for 1 missed. A good game

I was looking forward to Mick Burgess asking SK about his plans for next year tonight, but that will have to wait for next week.

This side is improving in the dropped lip department but it is obvious where we have been missing. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is not a leader. He is a fantastic courageous player, a worthy Dally M but he is NOT a bloody leader. Neither is Blair.

Kodi Nikorima showed tonight what a leader does. He was screaming at Jazz just to play the ball and not struggle close to full time in ordinary time, but Jazz didn't and knocked on. That would have given him a chance to go for goal up close.

It seems maybe he hasn't established his authority in the side yet However it seems he is getting there, slowly.

Should we give SK the benefit of the doubt on this game? I think so. They played like shit against a shit team, but they are improving, dare I say it. They might even have a show against the Sharks next week, but I won't be wasting my time going. I think if I stay away they will piss me off and win.

Example of the night...Fusitua...talk about rocks and diamonds...and some think he could make centre...dream on...he is a finisher...nothing more...and a bloody expensive one at that.

They are not a top eight side and would be an embarrassment if they got there. They are improving though and with some prudent investment might be ok in a couple of years.
 
Great. *sigh* Hey, we didn't lose! hahaha

Well at least that game demonstrated one thing fairly clearly, that we don't need a big bopper. (It's obvious that that would be an unnecessary waste of money, much better spent on a classy centre.) We made more metres more easily than the Broncs, despite them having their much-vaunted big bopper packed pack. But then we went and threw that massive advantage away, with an incredible number of errors and - as we've seen so much this year - consistently poor 5th tackle options. (It's time to give Chanel Harris-Tavita more time. More practice isn't going to help Greeny, Chanel needs it.)

Kodi had a great game (aside from the missed field goal attempts), always looking the man most likely to when he had the ball, which was more often than he's had it up until now. He's developing well.

I hope Ken is good! Head knock? Braith Anasta, you're a prize pillock. The swinging arm of Turpin was fairly obvious, wasn't it, Braith? Ken, you're eaaly a better player than Manu ever was. He guaranteed a couple of errors every game. It wasn't your best day today, but it was still pretty good, until you got hit.

Chris Sutton behaved himself, thank God, even giving us some penalties at key moments. His one major howler was not giving a penalty when in a tackle Hiku had both legs above his head, right in front of Sutton. Then the bunker fowled up again saying that Papa knocked on. Like fuck he did. If someone waves a finger at the ball it doesn't necessarily mean they touched it. That officiating error cost us the match. But then every one of our errors did, too, and I reckon we made more of those than the Broncs and refs combined.

But hats off to the boys for getting all that field position and for never giving up. Big plusses compared to earlier years, eh?
nailed it.

Just watched a replay, and haven't read any of the comments to date.

That was the only time other than round 1 that we totally outplayed a team. We should have won by 20-30, with the metres we were making, tackles we were breaking and the way we targeted some of their weak defenders. Then for some bizarre reason the game plan changes. Coates and co who had a standing 8 count, was left alone to sniff the daisies for the rest of the game and we made stupid error after stupid error. This team just finds a new innovative way to fuck things up week to week. You gotta hand it to them - they are inventive. Such an insanely difficult team to support and watch. If I was a neutral, I would avoid any game involving the Warriors, and don't blame the Aussie league shows for skipping them week to week.

Papali'i dies with the ball a lot. He never breaks the line, he has zero attacking game. I genuinely think he can turn into something very good, but he is a sound defender, who is a chronic handbrake atm.

Can always count on a Jazz error or two at crucial times. Nothing new.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck needs to lose the captaincy so that he can be free to play his attacking game. We can't have a captain making some of the desperate/forced errors he is making offensively, it is not a good blueprint for the rest of the guys. Give it to Blair if SK is going to insist on playing him, Tohu Harris when he returns.

A bad game from Luke.

I'll have to start using that, I hope the NZ cricket team dont Warrior tomorrow night
not as bothered about cricket as it's 99% behind the Sky paywall over here. ( a respected sports journalist basically compared to polo ) but, with respect, I hope the BCs lose in a very close match.

Nah Jazz has Gallen carries, great for his personal stats, bad for the team. His carries in the last 5 and golden point pretty much sums that up.

Awesome if you have a fantasy team, bad for our team, he isn’t good enough to get that much ball.

Maybe not formally, that might be an insult to a great player, but we need an on field general who the players listen to. They don't seem to be listening to Green or Kodi. Maybe that is the coaches job, telling them who to listen to. Heyzeuss I don't know.

Having said that somebody metioned there are baby elephants at the Broncos as well, and that stupid drop kick by Segeyaro seems to show that all right.
