I thought Chanel Harris-Tavita was good last year, I agree this year, he’s looked out of it but that’s coz greens calling the shots and he’s trash. If u look at our best attacking games last year they were without green.bunnies, storm games for example99% my read too. One
Honestly, what did Chanel Harris-Tavita do last year that had him anointed as the chosen one? Put on a big hit, not look like a turnstile in D?
Green is passed it. He's a decent compliment, not a number one.
Maumalo and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck are struggling because teams have figured it out and nobody on our team has a brain or ability to think on the fly.
Maumalo always gets the ball on the second tackle. It's so predictable 3-4 players from the defence can sprint out of the line and limit his metres to stop us getting on the front foot.
Unfortunately for the stat gobblers, once Maumalo's run metres drops down to the average winger, the rest of his game that is subpar for a winger gets badly exposed.
Pompey tried hard, but he's a slower, taller Herbert.
AK has always shown enthusiasm in whatever position he plays, but he's not one of Kearney's anointed ones so he won't last.
Egan - Meh, would rather have AK/Lawton tbh. 80 minutes of enthusiasm from those two and a genuinely running threat.
Props are getting dominated, but what can we do? Injuries and lack of quality hurts.
Blair - lol time to go.
Harris/Katoa - pretty much our only bright spot. It's just a shame our props can't get us on the front foot and our halves are so slow they can't drag defenders inward to give either of these guys a fair running lane to work with.
Papali'i - Either the guy is starting or not in the 17. Zero impact off the bench is a waste.
Nikorima - Shame he's so small and gets exposed in D as he looks like the one guy who might create half a chance from our spine outside Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
Kearney - Time's up
If I've missed anyone - Meh, they're not memorable enough to critique.
Worst Warriors side in history with one of the worst NRL coaches in history.
thing I would say is that Papali'i is a handy defensive player to come off the bench to do the tidy up work before half time. Unfortunately in a team devoid of any kind of attacking nous or skill, this is not what we need.
I think the desire to not use Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to do the donkey work is taking him out of the game entirely. The donkey work is definitely not how we'd like to use him, but it is better than having him sitting there getting cold and lonely. He is the first Warriors player I have ever genuinely wanted to leave so that I can enjoy watching him play to his capacity.
