‘Once were’ Warriors: From NRL sob story to giant killers worthy of thinking about the ‘F’ word

Not on his form ..to date ...for the money ....now if he was 600k-700k different story.... Very Good player but not Great ... of course I hope this changes ...been following. the warrriors since they joined the comp sadly ..started following the game during the time of the Green machine Vs Balmain tigers....
You don't think that he (Rodge) could be adjusting from 'the I have to do everything Man' to 'Bloody hell these other MF's have decided to dig in as well'?
Shell shocked like the rest of us!
 
Reality check, we recently beat 2 teams outside the top 8 and have yet to beat a current top 8 team. Which giants have we killed - except for Marty Taupau!

At least we’re being noticed and with the right attitude we will be in the games against the better teams.
A win over a top 8 side would help confidence wise, especially carrying into 2021.

I think the best we are likely to do is compete and spoil a few of the fringe sides top 8 prospects.

I love listening to stories by Matty Johns on Malcolm Reilly, what a tough bugger, a real legend 👍
There was another Pom forward called Cliff Watson. Cronulla brought him down to take care of little Tommy Bishop in the 1970s. One day at Brookvale Reilly belted Bishop so Watson came in and belted him. They ended up in a hell of a scrap in the middle of Brookvale. They couldn't pull them apart, they were punching and head butting each other. They were both a mess when they finished and both got ordered off. Old guys reckoned it was the toughest fight they had ever seen. Those Poms were as tough as anything.

Then there was Mark Broadhurst from Christchurch. Nice guy and not that dirty but very tough and full of guts. One day at the SCG he got stuck in a brawl against Newtown. They still talk about it.

I know Taupau is big and strong but those guys would have eaten him for breakfast and asked for more.

Excuse me I have to get a tissue.

Yes they are big and strong like I said, but balls cannot be got with weight training.
