How much do they hate Mathew Allwood if he doesn’t end up in the team this evening?

He’s the only other specialist outside back left standing at the club, and you cannot in good conscience send Kata-Maomalo back out there together again.

Maybe he does suck, but he was adequate in his one game this year, and if they are trying to shop him around, give him a chance to show something.

It was painful to watch Lino, Kata, Maomalo all back peddling in perfect coordination, like they were doing a line dance welcoming the cowboys in, they are all doing the same thing, so clearly have been taught to do it at some point, what kind of coaching is that? At least Kata had the gumption to say f- this and start coming up in the second half.

And put fatty konrad back in the centres, he’s not actually supplying any impact off the bench.

Poor Konnie is a confidence player sure he is fat but everyone knows that if he left for another club he would be a superstar no doubt, he needs game time and a whole 80 minutes then a good off season ( I compare him to dave taylor another player unfit and down on minutes for fucks sake these guys win games) so he has to play this week. I will put it out there would mannering be captain at any other NRL club? instead of lifting the troops he has gone backwards and a loose forward? he has never been one ever! this season was fucked long ago but did we ever believe with Chad at 6 we would ever be a hope? I say not. interesting to see Maloney going to sharks as well.

A big loss this weekend and the Warriors are right in the mix for the spoon, especially if home teams win their matches this round
 
1.Peta Hiku (Sea Eagles) / Omar Slaimankhel (Roosters) / Locke (Wakefield) / Abbey (Bulldogs)
2.Glen Fisiiahi (Chiefs RU) / Honeti Tuha Would have been a handy back up player in our current state, never played for the Warriors but always kept tabs and enjoyed his style - (Knights 20's,Knights NSW Cup - Played for Papakura Sea Eagles)
3.Ngani Laumape (Hurricanes RU)
4.Sosaia Feki (Sharks) / Adam Tuimavave-Gerrard (Cutters/Dragons)
5.Bil Tupou (Wakefield)
6.Carlos Tuimavave (Knights) / Api Pewhairangi (Irish RU) Never developed here but never got a chance here, a wasted talent untried.
7.Issac John (Panthers) Would have been a brilliant foil to Tui or Lino in the halves.

8.Leeson Ah Mau (Dragons) Now the cornerstone of the Dragons pack / Saulala Houma (Sharks)
9.Siliva Havili (Dragons) Never utilized in the right manner here I can see him carving at the Dragons / Pita Godinet (Wakefield) Another player who would have sparked the attack even without Johnson, a brilliant player on his day
10.Suaia Matagi (Roosters)
11.Manu Ma'u (Eels) / Matt Robinson (Titans)
12.Sio Suia Taukeiaho (Roosters) / Sam Lousi (Waratahs RU)
13.Elijah Taylor (Panthers) / James Taylor (Warriors 20's, Knights 20's, Knights NSW Cup)

14.Nathaniel Peteru (Titans) / Abraham Papalii (Roosters)
15.Mark Ioane (Dragons) / Russell Packer (Cutters/Dragons)
16.Ligi Sao (Sea Eagles)
17.Agnatius Paasi (Titans)

This club has let so much talent go it almost defies belief, enough to make a starting line up at least.

This club is a development club for the rest of the NRL.

Got to be honest, that list isn't impressing me, None of them are stars or even Good players in top 8 sides. At best they are good solid players in bottom 8 teams but most are NSW Cup quality players or worst.

Just highlights the problem, Its not the coach it's the quality of the team. We our players to high.

lift the knees please this week konrad

Should let him go. He's not learning the downside is to big now & should be a better player. Looks unfit & it show in some of his decision making on defense late in games. They were carrying him on the bench. What a joke for a center, That was happening when he started 2 years ago. it's not go enough.
 
The players heed to just dig in, show some heart and wait for the cavalry to arrive next year in the form of Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Luke and a recovered Johnson. No Chad. Lets develop Lino and any other players they think have potential.

Should be Tomkins in the halves &

After the Round 24 game against the North Queensland Cowboys do you want to see any changes for the game against the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Sports Stadium?

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?
Mason Lino or Chad Townsend?
Konrad Hurrell starting?

Discuss...

Should be another option Tomkins in the halves & with
Lino. Thats what i would do & swap Lolohea to FB. Tomkin needs to earn some of the money he's paid & take the responsibility to lead the side around.

Hahaha you really don't like him
 
This game is a cripple fight if we ever saw one.

One more game for Lino if Chad is still sick then back to NSW cup to make a serious effort in taking out that comp. If not having him in the NSW Cup side could hurt their chances of a top four finish then he should go back this week. They've already dropped from 1st to 4th after one loss.

I don't like the idea of moving Tui back to fullback if he's to be in the halves mix for next year, it would erode his confidence when he clearly hasn't been the problem. Better that Tomkins come up to 6 to partner him and Fish gets a shot at the back again if he's not injured.

Konrad needs to go back to starting, Peyroux isn't fast enough on d at centre and looked completely shot by the end of the Cowboys game but does well in the middle coming off bench as a small back rower \ utility type player. It would be interesting to see how Kata would go on the wing as some have suggested already, it might deter him from trying to run through his opposition on attack, he's at his best when he uses a bit of footwork at the line.

Allwood to the wing for Maumalo makes sense. Wrights lack of speed shits me though, shame cos the rest of his game is good enough for a 1st grade winger. He's almost like a slower version of Pat Richards but one that can't kick and hardly ever scores tries.
 
Most of those guys left for an opportunity because their paths were blocked here. Some will go on to better things, others won't. There's probably only 4-5 guys on that list who would be a genuine upgrade to what we have, mainly in the backs. All clubs lose talent though, it's the nature of the sport. We just need to get better at picking the right ones to keep at times.
The players who want to do well here pick themselves IMO... We just have to raise the standards so that the guys who stand out are the guys who will kick ass for the whole season, not just against the weak teams, once or twice a season...

Then its all about utilizing the huge talent pool of established players around the world better... How many duds have we signed lately.. Can't get that right either it seems...
 
The Tigers should be able to put 30+ on us.
We'll score points a bit easier but when the Tigers have the ball, we will need to tackle . . . .
