Opposition teams haven't effectively targeted our weak spots out wide. Rapana & co could exploit this.

Souths did. Kennar got one and they did get a couple disallowed. Like has been mentioned this game will be a good indicator of our progress.

And the chookies next week.

Won’t be taking Canberra lightly they’re desperate and at home where our record isn’t flash- their crowd can be vocal and feral so can’t let them get a roll on with repeat sets.
Think it’ll be a true test of where we are at 3-0 record breaking start is there for the taking- who knows win and we might get a 10 sec mention on their shows? Lose and out come the “it was only a matter of time” Aussies

Not confident enough to predict a win, but I'm very curious as to how we perform. It will show whether we were flat from the Perth trip last week, or Souths are puss and we're still trying to find our groove.

I'll be relatively happy win or lose if we can contain them to less than 16 (our average points conceded) because it will show clear progress in our defence. Obviously hoping and expecting a win though.

Have to hope it won't turn into a penalty fest because I don't think the rub will go with us if it does.

Also our first two games have included some calls that favoured us [fwd pass, obstruction call 1st game, 2 obstruction calls 2nd game] and I can't see that trend continuing

We have a win in us but it can't be assumed it mut be earned. They have just as much opportunity as we do.

Here's hoping the team are up for this.

Us by 8.

The refs are on a mission this season.

Our job is to get square at marker.
Get back the 10.
Peel away from tackles at the refs call.

Refs have set their standard and we will succeed by playing to them. Let's not get into a position where a call against us can derail us.

Agreed. Always a tough challenge this one. Perth and Townsville are among our toughest trips. But even a shit Canberra can ride the homecrowd like no other team can. If we win this one we tick off another stage in our maturity. Boyd had the best game I've seen from him in years last week, His form and Croker's luck v us.

Threats:

1) Papali'i and Boyd have a wow of a game and inspire the forwards
2) Leilua has a wow- on his day he slaughters Kata.
3) Croker usually scores a brace or more against us
4) Refs penalize us all game.

IMO 1) is the crucial point. If that doesn't happen we win. If 1 and 2 don't happen we win 20+. If 1,3 and 4 happen it's 50/50. If all 4 happen we're fucked.

The Rabbits had a good go at it:

Scored one through Kata charging out of the Line

Had one stopped but it took a miracle tackle from Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

Had one disallowed with a poor call by the Match Officials deeming a legit pass to be forward.

Got Ken to drop one of their kicks to him....and other bits....as many others have said if we play like that game I recon the Raiders are stuffed.
Beware the refs of 2018
Play the ball with ur foot....the ten meters....slowing the ruck down.

The big three aye.

We seem to have the PTB with your foot in our heads.

We are playing the fk u with the ruck.

But the ten meter rule is where we could really profit since we get the raw end if the deal anyway....any chance of the opposition being more closely monitored Is Welcome.

We have a different pack this season.
No Gubb.
No Thompson.
No Hoffman.

Add a Harris.
A Blair.
A Pulu.
A Paasi.

And add a Corvo. And I think we can run Boyd and Papalii ragged.

And score on Croker three times.

And play to the refs well enough coz coach Kearney said "roll your foot over the ball again and I'll kick you up the fucken arse."

Case closed. We are better this year

With Luke's article of him wanting to become an 80 minute player again
I'm reading that as Jazz Tevaga being on the bench as injury cover only
Depending on the score and how the game is playing out expecting him to maybe see final 10 minutes
He may not even be used at hooker baring injury...

That's what I thought when I saw him there, he will get the same kinda minutes Cook got last few weeks, only on once the game is basically over.

Warriors by 8.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck first try scorer.

Most people on here start the "post match discussion thread" by typing "useless bloody Warriors can't beat...." then have to delete that as 1 The Warriors won today and 2 The Warriors are 3 from3 . But the old muscle memory from typing phrases like that over and over last season and beyond hasn't gone yet...
