Rip n tear boys. Lets finish the season on a high.

Not that they need to prove anything to anyone else but the current love affair we have with the generalRugby League public and Aussie media is a fickle thing.

One half arsed effort and blowout and it'll be "Warriors.....same as always".

The guys deserve a win here.

Man what does Turner have to do to get a run. Surely this is the perfect time to give him another go. Let him have some time of the paddock and see what he can do. Id feel pretty hard done by if i was him.
I would say if Kodi or Chanel Harris-Tavita was injured Turner would get a go.
Hiku is the least risk option at fb.
Nice to see Patrick Herbert in hope he picks up a gig with us or elsewhere next year ...I just love his attitude!

Just throw a turtle into the middle of the field. First backline to catch it wins.

Would still expect a draw.

Whilst it would be good to still be in the finals hunt, how frustrating would it have been to be relying on the Sharks losing this weekend only to see this team put out by the Raiders:

1. Adam Cook
2. Semi Valemei
3. Matt Timoko
4. Harley Smith-Shields
5. Nick Cotric
6. Matt Frawley
7. Sam Williams (C)
8. Dunamis Lui
9. Tom Starling
10. Sia Soliola
11. Hudson Young
12. Corey Harawira-Naera
13. Siliva Havili
14. Kai O’Donnell
15. Ryan Sutton
16. Darby Medlyn
17. Jarrett Subloo

They have earned the right to rest players, but this is one of my pet peeves when other teams are making finals calculations.

Warriors are playing in 1 of the 2 games trialing these rules

Backs banned from scrums under rules trialled for round 20

Backs will be banned from packing into scrums and the NRL Bunker will review tries while the goal kicker is preparing for a conversion attempt under experimental rules to be trialled in matches with no impact on the NRL finals.
NRL CEO Andrew Abdo announced on Tuesday that Thursday night's Broncos-Cowboys match and Sunday's Warriors-Manly clash would be used to pressure test possible rule changes for next season.

They include:
  • Use of the "six-again" rule for 10-metre infringements
  • Handover for kicks into touch rather than a scrum
  • Nominated forwards only to pack in scrums
  • Change in the Bunker referral process to reduce stoppages
"It is clear the current process around scrums and the Bunker could potentially be better," Abdo said. "We are also looking at ways in which we can reduce stoppages without compromising the accuracy of the Bunker."
Scrums have long been the source of frustration for fans and many in the game, including ARLC chairman Peter V'landys, and former Penrith and England hooker Mike Stephenson last month told NRL.com they should be scrapped completely.

Front-row great Steve Roach was outraged that Sydney Roosters halfback Kyle Flanagan packed down as a prop in the round 9 match against North Queensland and V'landys recently suggested that credibility could be restored by banning backs from scrums.
The ARL Commission agrees and has approved the trialling of rules to ensure that occurs, with only players nominated as forwards on the team sheet 60 minutes before kick-off able to participate in scrums.
Interchange players can only pack into scrums if they have interchanged with a forward, with the referee and touch judges to monitor the players packing down.
If match officials detect that any player other than a nominated forward packs into the scrum, the referee will delay the feeding of the scrum and instruct the team to alternate positions, while the scrum clock continues to run.
If the scrum clock expires as a result, a full penalty will be awarded to the opposing team.

"We are a sports entertainment business," Abdo said. "It is important to continuously test innovative ideas, aimed at a better fan experience.
"This weekend is a great opportunity to test the practical application of some of the refinements which have been raised during the year."
NRL head of football Graham Annesley flagged the idea of the Bunker being able to overrule a try that had been incorrectly awarded during his weekly media briefing on Monday after touch judge Phil Henderson wrongly advised referee Ashley Klein that South Sydney winger Jaxson Paulo had scored last Thursday night.
Annesley had been in the Bunker when review official Henry Perenara attempted to warn to Klein to refer the try after Paulo's foot glanced the touchline before he grounded the ball but once the try was awarded it could not be overturned.
However, the referees in the Broncos-Cowboys and Sea Eagles-Warriors matches will be told not to refer any try they believe had been scored as the Bunker will review it while the goalkicker is preparing his conversion attempt.
Should the real-time review indicate the possibility that a try had not been scored, this will be proactively communicated to the on-field referee who will stop the conversion process until a final decision is made.
When the on-field referee is unsure as to whether a try has been scored it will be referred to the Bunker as normal.
"The Commission's focus is to ensure our games are as entertaining and free-flowing as possible for our fans," Abdo said. "Like we have in previous seasons, we will use games which will have no impact on the top eight to test the potential rule changes.
"We will obviously also take on board feedback from the players and clubs involved and report back to the Commission during the off-season."
Other experimental rule changes aimed at reducing stoppages will result in the awarding of six-again call for off-side infringements by defending teams and a play-the-ball re-start instead of a scrum where the ball or an attacking player has gone into touch.
With the exception of a 40/20 or 20/40 kick, play will resume with a play-the-ball by the non-offending team 10 metres in from touch, opposite where the ball entered touch, but no closer than 10 metres from a goal line.

For offside infringements, the referee will restart the tackle count by verbally and physically signalling six-again.
This applies to players who do not retire 10 metres to the point set by the referee, or those who do retire 10 metres but move forward before the ball clears the ruck, as Canberra five-eighth Jack Wighton did in last Sunday's match against the Warriors.
Wighton was sin-binned for repeated infringements and he still could be under the experimental rules.

A full penalty will be awarded for professional fouls, repeated infringements or where the off-side breach has resulted in the ball being lost.
A full penalty for a professional foul or repeated infringements, will result in the offending player being sent to the sin bin.
If the team in possession deliberately breaks down play in an attempt to convert the "six-again" call into a full penalty, the referee will order a scrum with the loose head and feed to the opposition.

Meh scrums are a joke regardless of who packs in to them.

1. Make the fuckers bind properly and
2. Penalize the fuckers if they break early (which is basically every scrum in the NRL atm)

Love the fact they gave teams the options of where they want the scrum set (finally seeing some set moves returning)......hate the fact that the 1st receiver is getting the ball and tackler at the same time....stop letting them leave early!

Thats BS by the Raiders and Storm, like Kenty said clubs happy to take the TV money. NRL should have a standard rule that if you don't play at least 10 top players you don't get all.the money.

If you're relying on other teams results to go your way can you really say you really deserved to be in the finals ( and yea i know we probably deserve it more than Sharks :D) .
It would have been a fairy tail ending had they made it deep into the finals but in all honestly they've already exceeded expectations and I truly don't think they would have been able to hang with the top teams for the consistent wins they would've needed in the finals with The lack of players available etc.
Not blaming any of them but i wouldn't be surprised if subconsciously they were conflicted about winning and still being in the running for the finals not knowing when they'll return home.

Edit: I'd expect the same from the warriors of their final table position was locked in in the top 8. Better to go into the finals with the top players rested.
