Our team seems to have such little depth. Afoa will be a big miss on Friday.

Lisone should be out, Afoa could be.
So Satae and Vuna should come in?

Got to respect the Knights,they have been in touch most games.
If Ponga is supported well up front,we could have a good game on our hands.

Just hope our team starts to up the tempo as finals footy nears.

Same team as last week. Fairly important at this stage of the year that we put out a consistent side, injuries and suspension permitting.

Kata survives simply because his brain snaps on attack aren’t quite as bad as Hiku’s lack of presence on defence.

Lisone’s forearm aside, surely he doesn’t offer anything that both Satae or Sao don’t? He didn’t do anything else bad, but he’s always got that stupid play in him and I’m not really sure what the upside is.

Trainspotter stat. We have only had our first choice spine of Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Green, Johnson and Luke for 11 out of 20 games or 55% of games this season. Of those 11 games we have won 8, a winning percentage of 72.7% . So basically if we have our first choice spine playing against the Knights, I am 73% confident we will win.

Pulu back is good. He'll be back to top gear by the time the finals start.

Sao for Lisone.

Too late in season for other changes. We’ve made our bed, time to support regardless.

However, I would be interested in:
Hiku replacing Kata (must release his winger)
Lawton replacing Tevaga
Sao to take final bench spot

Good lord no. If they replace Jazz after that Herculean effort I’ll walk barefoot in the nude straight through the deserts of Australia to Perth and back.

Hopefully this article is right and Bunty will be good to play come Friday!

"Fellow Warriors interchange forward Bunty Afoa has also been slapped with a grade one dangerous contact charge on Dragons forward Leeson Ah Mau but will be free to play the Knights with an early guilty plea"

Good the media is onto this -

Dragon player lead with a forarm and Lisone requires attention as a direct result - down in play and obvious that something happened... match review - nothing to see here...

Lisone does the same thing but with no injury! and he gets charged

Please explain nrl

Contest it warriors...

Yup, I agree, this should be contested out of principle.. And cite that clip as evidence. No charge for one = free to go for the other.

Am I the only guy here that is hopeful of a higher finish? We have the Panthers, the Broncos and Sharks have stuttered around as much as us, and the Dragons have lost their mana a bit.

Some key games to come - Broncos v Souths, Broncos v Roosters, Roosters v Souths, Panthers v Storm, Sharks v Storm. We have a nice run and 3/4 games at home, no excuses.

Many teams have some of the lower teams that have found some form and we know how close this comp is.

We are 2 points and points differential off 4th atm. I'm hopeful of at least 6th, perhaps higher.

I'd be stoked if we finished in 5th or 6th and had a home game week 1 of the Finals. Mt Smart would be rocking!

give it up peeps, Kata is never going to be dropped. He's a good defender and score tries. He just refuses to pass.

Lisone needs to be replaced with a mobile forward, I'd have Vuna over Satae. And everyone else is the same.

I'm sure I read Tohu Harris is out for about 4 weeks.

I agree with you that he won't be dropped, if it was going to happen would have happened by now but as a defender yes, he does do some good hits but he is found out quite few times and makes very poor reads and his lack of passing is well documented, he should write that on his wrist bands so he can read it during the game..... ;) The only problem is that there isn't anyone knocking at the door to replace him. It would be lovely to have a high quality centre but the fact is we don't. I'm actually happy for once the judiciary has sighted Lisone, keeps him out of the team, i personally don't see any improvement from him and he looks overweight. :eek:

The problem with what Lisone did is that there is every chance someone like Ben Cummins would send him for that.

It was deliberate and asking for trouble.

That team...in that scenario...would go on to lose that game with 12 men under that much pressure.

It is not Rocket Surgery, you cannot afford let your emotions rule you in some games against some opposition at some times.

The context is why all this talk of enforcer is off.

An enforcer will take that the next few blokes out like Blair and Beale did...use da brains mate.
