We have some of that mental frailty again, tho.
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.We have some of that mental frailty again, tho.
And Iro’s still there.
Season over."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.
Luke will take Jazz spot not Sao IMOSo 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."
