I agree the loses were mental but I honestly can’t see why. The team literally only has Fusitua and Kata from 2 years ago when the team was also mentally frail.

You can’t change the whole team, coach, support staff and management and have the same issue.
We have some of that mental frailty again, tho.
And Iro’s still there.

Cappy got a huge amount of stick when he was coach, but took some big and necessary decisions, such as dropping Konrad Hurrell for one.

He’s not with us now, but was Asst Coach last year. I know his years at the top were unsuccessful, but I still reckon we’re missing his no-nonsense approach.

He said in an interview before leaving for Canberra that he’d told Ricky Stuart at interview that having been a coach, he knew what coaches needed from their assistants. In other words, he knew when not to be a yes-man. Was this because Iro has been Asst under him? “I know what’s needed and it’s not that!”

Whatever the answer, there’s gotta be some mental toughness in the team if we’re gonna get anywhere. We had that in spades at the beginning of last season...

(OP was in the NRL 2019 Round 4 thread)

Shit, we lost by 40 points already to a couple of teams. I think all of us a fearful in a worst case we could lose 65-0.

Let's hope the boys man up.

When Iro was a player his mental toughness was a trademark. Also he is not known as an arse licker, he got stick from the club for things he said on SkyTV once. I doubt SK has employed him as an arse licker, more like somebody he can trust. I still think the major problem at the club is lack of depth, especially in mental toughness. Makes the decision to let CNK go all the more surprising.

If we are talking about resilience: the whole framework is based around optimism towards the future. You need to actually have something to base that optimism on otherwise you aren't mentally tough - just delusional.

This is where you get the idea that success breeds success: Melbourne and the Roosters.

If the players don't have that belief in each other or management/coaching they are never going to be resilient. You can't fake it. Players aren't dumb, if they see others gimping their team (and coaches rewarding them) they can't fake belief in that player or team.

I know you all want to pretend that Jazz getting suspended helps the team, but watching Lawton trying struggle through 80mins against that monster Souths pack would be a straight up death wish.

Tevaga is kaka, but hes our 4th best hooking option remember. Go 4 deep at any other club, and tell me their 4th string hooker I gaurantee it won't be pretty.

Weather looks reasonable up on the coast, few showers maybe on Friday should be a good hard track as is a nice ground there. Think we will turn up with the right attitude, but Souths are a top 3 team and will be looking to bounce back. Souths by plenty, hopefully doesn't get too out of hand.

Lisone was one of the hardest running fowards in the first two rounds, so it's not too surprising. Don't think it's fair to say it's Kearney playing favourites, given how little he featured at the business end of last season too. Pulu on the other hand finished out last season after coming back from Injury, so their fortunes got reversed in the off-season for some reason.

The Truth

I just hope that the interchange gets reduced by two. Then Kearney can have 2 men sit on the bench all game. Just to prove you know....a point you know.
He is so ahead of the curve.
Kearney coaching mantra.
Obsessed with forwards with "late footwork at the line" and is willing to sacrifice that for penalties and dumb shit....and obsessed with using one less player than every other team. Because we'll...just because I am the coach and you are not.
Let's all take banners to the next home game pointing out that we only play with 16 men. "So what if you beat us, we only played with 16"

"Warriors duo Issac Luke and Bunty Afoa are set to line up for Saturday's clash with the Rabbitohs on the Sunshine Coast"

Fuck me dead if we're subject to Issac running his underconditioned fat arse around 20m from the play the ball while Jazz fills in at hooker for half the game, we are in dire straights.

They've got to get Bully back up to speed as quickly as possible. Forget ISP he would just diddle around there.

I see the temptation in playing him specifically against the Rabbits.

Probably our second most valuable spine player last year. I have him ahead of Johnson and behind Roger Tuivasa-Sheck on last years form.

Good news about Bunty.

Lets all hope Jazz has his occasional sensational game this week. He does clock up about three a year.

So assuming that Tevaga gets suspended, Ligi Sao will be on the bench again. Hope he gets a decent spell this time. I can’t see him being insulted like he was again. This forum will spontaneously combust if that happens and obviously that’s the deciding factor.

Being up against the Burgess bunnies, SK seems to want to have forwards only on the bench? It’s not characteristic of Kearney. Or am I reading too much into the interchange numbering? Sao at 18, Beale 20.

There’s some good news! Lawton looks to be on the way to getting 80 minutes this weekend. I don’t think this news item (it’s dated today) would exist if there wasn’t a good chance of it:


Facing the prospect of being the Warriors' only established hooker for Saturday's trip to face South Sydney at Sunshine Coast Stadium, Karl Lawton has put his hand up to play the full 80 minutes.

Interchange dummy-half Jazz Tevaga faces a one-week ban when he heads to the judiciary Tuesday night to fight a dangerous contact charge.

Other hooking options Issac Luke (hamstring) and Nathaniel Roache (calf) are both injured, with only Luke considered a chance of being fit for Saturday night's meeting with South Sydney.

While he's yet to play big minutes at first-grade level, Lawton told NRL.com he has plenty of past experiences to lean on.

"If need be for sure [I can do 80 minutes]," he said.

"I have played 80s before and have had quite a few in my career, so it's just a matter of getting the opportunity.

"[I haven't played 80] this year but last year I was knocking 80 minutes out for most of the season.

"I think Peta Hiku could jump in there for a bit [if needed] too. If I need a spell you could chuck someone else in there."
Luke will take Jazz spot not Sao IMO
