A few comments arguing the starting team. We have to remember over the 80 it is a squad effort.
Once Katoa comes on Papalii goes to the middle with Blair to Prop. Papalii defends well and has an offload. Also with Lawton coming in to energise DH.
Some saying the gameplan has been changed. Just have to wait and see.
From the early evidence of last night's game, the game plan needs to change as the 6 again rule certainly speeds up the flow. Wonder how Bellamy/Cammo Smith and his boys will try to figure a this one out.They said the game plan was being changed before round 1.
Are you saying they've changed it again which essentially throws out the off season game plan after two rounds?
I look forward to us unleashing another new game plan in round 5.
Yeah and they've been pushing a change in attitude and standards for over 5 or 6 seasons.
Can change the game plan all we want, but when the forwards lack punch, the backs lack speed, and we have no genuine strike at 7 or 9 - unfortunately we ain't doing shit with any game plan.
I'm surprised Josh Curren and jack murchie are not starting and on the bench respectively. King vuniyayawa vs an indigenous all star who played well in that game? We dont have the luxury to be slow starters here so hope the boys can pull this one off.
Burr at prop? The guy trys his guts out but that's a mistake over a first grader who's supposed to be the alpha prop in the pack (paasi) please prove me wrong Kearney
Im not sure why anyone would rate Papalili as a defender. Do you watch the games?
He is so slow laterally and consistently just hangs on in the tackle leaving him laying on the ground like a dead marine as the ball is played.
Have seen many tries scored against us when this happens
Makes more sense at first glance.A few changes according to NRL.com
Warriors: Former Raider Jack Murchie has been elevated into the interchange for his new club. Eliesa Katoa has been promoted to the starting second row with Isaiah Papali'i switching to lock and Adam Blair to prop. Front-rower Lachlan Burr has been omitted 24 hours from kick-off along with bench back Adam Pompey. The Warriors have won their past three games against the Dragons.
