Be interesting to see what Mooks does with the 3 small guys. Cant see all of them being in the side. We would just give too much size away. Roache to start, luke off the bench for his first run in a while. Then I think in following weeks roache might miss out if they return to the status quote with bully starting and jazz off the bench. Burr to keep his spot, papalli off then bench, sorry I still dont see what alot of you see with papalli. Lisone back to isp please !

What would we know? Soward has them higher in the power rankings that us.
Soward is also a petulant man-child. Based on the results of round 1 i would have us sitting between 4-6 in the power rankings.

I expect the tigers will show some improvement in attack this week, they do have legitimate short kicking game threats in benji and farrah but i think we will limit their chances to execute, as long as we diffuse their kicks.

Tigers back 5 are better than the dogs but that's a low bar. They don't have Jennings and are likely to replace him with mbye, so they are giving up a considerable power advantage against us.But like all Tigers teams of the past, their strength is not their size but their speed and agility. We need to watch Farah and their mobile forwards with the offload. Their strategy will be to run us ragged because all Aussies operate on the notion that we can't last the 80. Just execute our plan of 3 weeks ago and we shouldn't have a problem here. Last few times we've raped the Tigers and we've done it on the back of a power game.

They're the favourites with the bookies.... and rightfully so.
They have a well balanced squad and experience across the park.
The poor quality was of the Manly game was pretty much due to the weather. The Tigers impressed me because the competed so hard. Maguire seems to make pretty gutsy teams. I'm not so confident tbh.
Wow... I placed all my bookie money on the warriors as in my head they were a sure bet... until I read this

As Papalii wasnt dropped or injured I can see him starting on an edge with Blair at Lock the makeup of the Bench will depend on SKs pecking order between Lisone and Burr. Jazz and Leeson are certaintees, will the 4th spot be Luke?

I really don't see them winning the forward battle at all.
Nor do I see Farah & Benji winning their respective battles.

Tigers will be left to pass wide early, and chance their arm.
Not high percentage football, so goodluck to them
I agree, our foward pack will be too strong and provided our completions are good, we wont afford the tigers the glut of possession that manly did.

Don't change a winning team unless you have to.
A coach should not think that way IMO. That mentality makes room for sliders. We should not encourage anyone to sneak around and be carried. You analyze the game as per normal. Get rid of any obvious slacking or dumb players.

Lets just keep fingers crossed for a fine day game day that game the Tiger had vs Manly was a real downpour the first half and they handled the conditions ok might test us a bit with bad weather. Lets also hope Big Ben has introduced the Tiger boys to the benefits of Powerdrinks and sleeping pills

in your opinion who were they?
because I didn't see any slackers.
as for Burr an Lisone both contributed hugly to our forward pack
with good runs an quick play the balls .
I don't know if Papilii is that sort of player ..
hes probably got a higher ceiling to him though .
definetly not worse just different .
luke is a given if hes fit though .

Not fussed on their back 5 to be honest. Not sure it's all that much better than what the Dogs trotted out, Marsters aside. The Dogs lack of go forward was the major issue.

My concerns are mainly around Madge.

He's a very good coach we all know that. Can he take what he learned in the trials and change the result ?

Of course he can, Nathan Brown did it to the Sharks. It's an interesting comparison to draw, since the Sharks looked like world beaters in the trial and the Knights looked like chopped liver. I know people will say it was only a trial, but the closing of the gap in the space of two games can't be dismissed lightly, given how wide apart they were and how rapidly the Knights recovered themselves.

Are the Warriors at risk of taking the Tigers lightly? of course they are its the Warriors. Will they underestimate the Tigers? nobody knows other than the players, although last year they really struggled to beat some teams after they made them angry (Roosters and Bunnies I'm thinking here).

The other factor I worry about is the officials. Watching the occasion at Mt Smart I thought to myself there is no way on Gods green earth that the Refs or the bunker will not be influenced, the entire NRL in fact, they are human beings, they will do everything in their power not to be the bad guys here, at this time, in front of these people.


I wouldn't say we were given any favours, what I meant was, we didn't cop any 'it's the Warriors who cares' factor. I guarantee you they cared.

Personally I am very confident about this game.

And that my fellow Warriors supporters is a concern in of itself . . .

Tigers will think they can out grind us like the Warriors of old.

They will get a very harsh reality check when we don’t fold and start to put them under pressure wave after wave after wave.

You know how they do video analysis to try to improve?

It's tempting in this situation to want the coaches to show the video of all of the good things they did only and to say "Do that this week and I'm happy, your spots safe".

I believe we have a far stronger side all over the park and justify a confident win.
However, as always, they will try to ride the crowd, wriggle around on the ground like fury and endlessly try milking penalties. Let's hope for a steady referee not to buy into that BS.

Hear, Hear!

But I accidentally spent all my bookie cash on Tigers 13+ when it was supposed to be Warriors 13+.

Pray for me.

Yes AhMau an Jazz an Lisone definitely up the tempo when they come on .
This is what a bench should do ..
Definetly not like the warriors of previous seasons

We look better on paper, but I won't write off the Tigers as there's additional factors to consider:
  • Long range forecast in Sydney for Sunday is cloudy and 31 degrees. Campbelltown is generally 2-5 degrees hotter than inner Sydney, so temperature could be low-mid 30's by game time. The afternoon dry heat could be a factor.
  • Maguire is a smart operator. He would have taken something out of the Whangarei trial and will be prepared to counter. Especially with a hard nut like Farah who will get in the face of our halves.
  • The travel factor, wasn't so much an issue last year and let's hope it isn't this year. But first trip overseas this season adds an unfamiliarity to the process.
  • The bounce factor - coming off a high from the 40-6 hammering of the Doggies, plus an emotional time given last Friday's events.
  • Kiwi factor in the Tigers team. Rusty, Mutts, Benji, Marsters, Taylor will lift when playing our Warriors. More often than not it happens.
  • Soward. Don't want to upset him now, do we?
Funny thing is that this forum complained about Mutts and Packer before they left and reckoned good riddance to them. And for good reason. Mutts was lazy and Packer's running impact diminished. They haven't gone badly at Tigers. But they're not up with the top tier.

Marshall hasn't been effective since he left league to go to union.

Farah is good and he and Marshall will no doubt try to target Keighran. But he's lost his sharpness. I'm comfortable our back three will pick up the slack. Roache himself is sharper in the running game.

Masters is not as impactful as his size suggests. He's still developing but I don't feel sides quiver at the sight of him right now. We handled easily enough in the trial. He had a couple of good busts when it didn't matter. His defence is a bit soft.

Do you see anything in their team that even sounds nearly as menacing as Ken/Fusitua/RTS?

You're going to see. Cleary isn't there any more. That D has deteriorated. No Simona. Nofoaluma is not the player he was 2 or 3 seasons ago. He hasn't kicked on. I see nothing to fear in that side.

Finally, Brooks is the most overhyped. Not even the Aussies can pinpoint much in his game to fear. He has failed to deliver to the degree people accused SJ of, except SJ has an impressive highlights reel. Brook's best asset is his speed on support. If his pack dominates and gets a roll on he can get away from you.

I'm confident it's another 16+.
