This is what I don't get we managed to make a strong performance against the Broncos and then the next line up against storm was different. What I mean is don't change a winning team this late in the season. Now look at us off the back of 2 disapointing losses. Idk guys i always pray and hope that Charnze gets a go on the wing.

1. R. Tuivasa-Sheck
20. C. Nicoll-Klokstad
3. D. Fusitua
4. P. Hiku
5. K. Maumalo
6. B. Green
7. S. Johnson
8. B. Afoa
9. Isaac Luke
10. A. Paasi
11. I. Papalii
12. T. Harris
13. A. Blair

14. L. Pulu
15. K. Lawton
16. J. Vuna
17. S. Mannering

Biggest issue isn't the make up of the back line it's our lack of consistent go forward though Hiku's been providing plenty of it this season for us so maybe bring him back in.

Fuck Gavet off, send him back to ISP where he can learn to run hard and straight again because the majority of his runs were sideways for zero meters on the weekend, it's been creeping into his game this season and it's giving me the shits, the hard man persona doesn't wash when your too soft to do what your paid for and take it up the guts.

Bunty can start, Satae can come back in after making the most meters out of any Warriors player or any forward on the field in ISP over the weekend ... Lisone, thanks but don't call us we'll call you and Jazz, well what can you say, appreciate your heart but your too mong for dummy half and unless your brothers are giving you front foot ball your a liability at lock/Prop so you can wait by the phone with Libone.

Course none of it will happen but dreams are free at least until this time tomorrow when Kearney names all his sons again for another week.

If you want to make it to the top you have to make the tough sacrifices.

Kearney needs to play the game as hard as he possible can from now on in. That means picking the players who can get results on the field and lighting a fire under their butts.

Nothing else will win. This means doing anything else makes him a loser.

Beale offers no threat with the ball in hand and on the weekend defended like hiku. at least hikus attack is dangerous and makes good yards. kata is meh at the moment but id still prefer him to all our other centers.
pulu was quality, so strong running the ball, papalii hasnt been bad but i just prefer pulu.
tevaga needs to be nowhere near the side.

We should be closer to getting to full strength with Harris, Blair and Luke coming back along with Pulu also back. That raises a few questions.

Who makes way for those guys? Lisone is one obvious guy to drop out.

Do they continue with Tevaga playing in the middle? I wouldn't so don't shoot the messenger:finger: just raising the question as the coaching staff seem quite keen/stubborn on this tactic.

If you look at this make up for example the players listed should cover our needs in terms of interchange and about the best we could do to match the bigger sides. The unlucky one would be Papali'i.

8 Paasi
9 Luke
10 Gavet
11 Pulu
12 Harris
13 Blair

14
15 Mannering
16 Afoa
17 Satae

I'd prefer Lawton at 14 to cover centre, halves and dummy half. Kearney tries to keep Luke out there for close to 80 anyway so most of the interchanges would involve the other guys listed on the bench.

I think the problem lies in kearney doesnt see luke as a 80min man. I think he likes tevaga out there as some type of security blanket. I dont see the logic in it but i would simply have lawton as cover. Tevaga is a centaur half horse half human. Hes half a hooker half a lock but you end up getting nothing from him. Hes a plague and must go.

I'm feeling now I just want the season to end.....

The gloss or euphoria up to Bluey's round has well and truly worn off.

IF we make make the 8, it will only be for one game.

Kata gotta go bro
Hiku and Beale into the 3 & 4
Should unlock Fusitua & Kenny

Jazz hands bench spot forward ONLY

Harris and Blair back on the grass

Bully fit and sign that brother up

Get the big bodies on rotation

Again Kata gotta go bro

I wouldn't have Beale there either. He fucked up twice big time. First by coming in to grab no one. And they score. 2nd was when he totally ignored Fusitua and kicked for Casper the Ghost.
Kata isn't any better. So were fucked which ever way we go.

I can't see Steve Kearney making too many changes. He'll name the 'injured' players and then some may drop out later in the week. The likes of Jazz and Kata will remain there.

Heading into the pointy end of the season you need your most experienced forwards out there so I'd start with

Blair
Luke
Passi
Harris
Pulu
Mannering

Gavet and bunty bringing impact from the bench.

Funny how everyone is now calling for Hiku to return... people were also saying last week that it was time for Lisone to have another go and now they want his head again. Same will happen with Hiku
