Manly are better this year. The Dogs, even though we beat them, are better this year, the Eels are better,
It's a harder NRL this year in general. Everyone is better, almost, except maybe us (arguably)

Oh I see what you did there.

Everyone got better simply means we got worst!

Fonua-Blake and Tommy Turbo back this week after they fought hard to come back in the mud against the Roosters. I can promise you Manly will be up for this game and as mt.wellington said, we have an awful record against Manly. Simple recipe really, we need to get back to what we have been doing well, get into the wrestle, complete sets and build pressure. If the emotion of the occasion gets to these guys, Manly will run riot.

Da fuck.

How did we go from 4-0 up prediction against doggies, tigers, manly and tits to suddenly saying 1-2 down and manly are a threat?

Not acceptable.

Sort that shit out SK!

I would rather lose at marbles giving everything I had than have the warriors just win in a hopeless performance where they DGAF 😜

My effort driven Warriors will one day win a premiership

Your win without the effort sounds like a bunch of Aussie cricketers 😂

Yellow Sandpaper anyone?

If we can't beat Manly, there is something seriously wrong.

And the sad thing is we have witnessed many times in the past that "there is something seriously wrong" and we are all still here.... AAAAAHHHHHHH

Can finally come out of the wilderness after last weeks shellacking!!! Very reminiscent of a huge night on the turps where you embarrass the s^it out of yourself, usually takes about a week of self loathing before hopping on the bike again. (unless you lived in Qtown, where everyone embarrassed themselves, so straight back on the bike)

What a tough game, read as an easier assignment 4 weeks ago! TT back, Manly seem to rise against us, support will no doubt favour the Sea Eagles? I get it, still frustrates me though that the NZ side in NZ has less support.

Hoping my euphoria around last years resurgence isn't smashed into pieces over a 6 day period! still, very optimistic and want to see the commitment, cohesion, attitude that underpinned our success last year evident tomorrow. 2pm kick off for us here in Brisbane, allows a few coldies nice and early. GOLD.

Warriors to beat a determined Sea Eagles outfit.

I think the Cantabs will unite around the kiwi team this time, I doubt there'll be much noise for Manly tomorrow.

It is going to be an amazing match from that perspective alone. I have never been so pumped for a regular round robin NRL game before.

What's happening with our team list by the way, has it been revised yet to account for Lisone's ban?

Home town advantage will be huge here. If the guys can stay close early so the crowd can stay in the game we will win as I am expecting the cantab crowd to be off the hook.

Is it home town advantage though? Since the Warriors entered the NRL in 1995, they've played 28 regular season home matches outside of Mt Smart for a win-loss-draw record of 7-20-1. That's a 71% loss record of home matches around NZ. That's even counting the several matches played at Eden Park. On the bright side though the Warriors best "away" home stadium is AMI in CHCH with 3 wins there. The worst stadium is Westpac Trust with only 1 win out of about 6 or 7 matches there.

Just be thankful it's not a late game.

Great post. Maybe as an explanation, It feels like some people I know here in Wellington are Roosters fans, or Souths fans, or manly fans. There are few league fans I know who are strictly warriors fans and those that are tend to be more casual league fans. There are many wellington fans on this board so they may have a different experience. But I guess I am putting out there that there is a chance that some of the fans who turn up to games in Wellington are either neutral or there to cheer on the opposition.

Cantab people by observing them across multiple sporting codes would be more likely to back the kiwi team.

I also just have a hunch tomorrow night they will go off the hook with their support, as it has been an emotional time for them especially.

I would like to elaborate on why I am so pumped for this game. I see it as a definitive moment in the season. If we lose to Manly, as good as they are, then it may send an early signal that our team isn't top 8 worthy. To be in the top 8 we need to be able to close out games like tomorrow night which are being played in our home land.

Let's get passionate Warriors.

Some forum members have their periods on the regular on here.
After the bulldogs game it was "We look big, strong & fast. And we will be to big, to strong to fast for the Tigers , They couldn't handle us pre season. And won't this week.....#WarriorNation

We get cleaned up by the old fullas from the Tigs.
And now its all doom & gloom. Manly will clean us up! We looked fucked, Kata can't pass/tackle/handle face pain.... again , Luke can fuck off......God almighty. Take your pills ladies. It's only round 3. 1 win, 1 loss. Not bad isn't it?

The Rollercoaster Warriors will fuck with our feelings all season. Just buckle up and don't jump off the ride yet. Lol

I think the right time for being negative is right after a loss. And it should tapper off heading into game day, with all of us bursting with optimism right before kick off.

Then when we get handed a shit sandwich we can start the negative cycle all over again.

But if they win..... Fun times for a few days, before getting serious about winning the next game.

As long as they remember to fucken get serious every Monday, I'm not too suicidal about it all. But when you repeatedly hear stories about how they forgot to take the game seriously. I mean it's not that complicated surely.

In my experience there’s a few camps
1.Warriors supporters who support the team week in week out.
  1. NZ fans who will support the Warriors because they are the NZ team.
  2. Fans of other teams who had a team before the Warriors and continued to support their original team.
  3. Fans who are either Anti- Warriors or have become frustrated and quit the Warriors and hitched onto another team. Can usually tell by who was successful at a time and picked up fans.
Most of my NZ mates are Warriors fans with a few exceptions;
Canberra- because they were his team before the Warriors were around
Cowboys- Because of JT
Tigers- Because got given a jersey as a little kid and loved it.
Storm/Rabbitohs- because they were winning at the time.
Dragons- because his dad is an Aussie who supported them plus his dad etc.

Went to see the team in Christchurch today. To a man they are focussed without any doubt. Had a brief word with Solomone Kata. Apart from being a nice guy I would not want to be the first guy he hits tomorrow. He is up for it for sure. I have to say they are a great bunch of guys with the fans, including SK and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. More than model professionals IMO. Warriors by 12.

Big ups to the warriors and to Manly as well for what they have done here in Christchurch. Also watched them visit the mosque in Deans Avenue and the respect they had - times like that makes you think of the unimportance sometime of league and the bigger picture in life - Isaac Luke doing the haka, awesome. As to the game today - a little concerned about our bench, its a bit small - still think the Warriors will win. Shoud be a firm ground, so go hard today boys.

A lot of photos showing AK always by Roger Tuivasa-Sheck side. He must be taking him under his wing or he is sucking up haha
