Well if you don't want that amnesia to be taken away from you and replaced by sad Warriors memories, cover your ears now!...

The Warriors usually blow it in the last 15 minutes, we're 2-7 for the season.

Also, don't take a hint from the movie "Memento", about a guy who suffers an inability to make new memories and gets tattoos to remind himself of things...

Of course if you did, your body would end up covered in "Blew it in the Last 20 Minutes!" tats...

I'm looking forward to Saturday, too, BTW. I know just how you feel - next day you swear "never abloodygain will I watch those talentless gimps!", by Tuesday morning you're thinking "I wonder what the team will be for next week! We were so close last week, got so many things right, just fix that one thing and we'll start winning consistantly! Roll on the weekend!"[/quote]


definition of a warriors fan right there.

With all that's being said about Isaac John, does anyone know why he couldn't even crack the first grade squad of the third rate Super League team he was in? Didn't he play for someone like the Salford Whogivesafuck Reds???

I agree that he is a good player that doesn't great pace or any great skill. However I fear he will be like a host of similar type Kiwi players who play the house down V Warriors

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

Did a bit of research. Fan opinion is similarly divided to this place , for every fan on their website that says he didn't get a real opportunity over there , there's folk who think he wasn't good enough.

Apparently they hired him as a goal kicker, he missed vital kicks , they lost games , got replaced in the squad by a specialist goal kicker in the same position.

From their Coach :

Richard Agar commented:

“He has got a club in the NRL that he’s going to go and join one of their full-time squads so we’ve agreed to release him with immediate effect. The reason being are pretty simple ones for us really, last year when Syksey (Paul Sykes) came into our team we made a change in that position based on a couple of things based at that time and we had a lot of success with the changes that were made.”

“For Isaac at 24-years old with no reserve grade or ability to dual-reg him because of the border agency rules, the landscape from halfway through last season to where we are now has completely changed. He was part of our squad and we were really happy to be part of our squad but he can’t play, we have nowhere for him to play.

“We’ve had an understanding that if an opportunity came up for him we wouldn’t stop him from taking it. Good for him that the opportunity has come up and we’re going to wish him all the best and really thank him for his contribution.

“He was one of the first guys that came through the door when I guess we were reborn as a club and as a team and he’s played a part in that, even when it’s not been going so great for him in terms of team selection. He’s always been a guy that’s really contributed, whether it’s been running against the opposition for practice and being a part of the team off the field as he’s been a real quality bloke when we do the team building.

“We wish him all the best and I hope he’s better for the experiences, the good and the bad ones that he’s had at our club.”

John also commented:

“I am very grateful for the club to allow me to leave, the move didn’t work out as well as I hoped and I’m really looking forward to my new challenge.

“It was a mutual agreement between both parties that we would part and I’ve left on good terms, the Wildcats have acted really professional. I have a lot of love for my teammates and I have made friends for life as well as learning lots from Rich Agar and especially Webbo (James Webster) but I’m moving on for a fresh start.”

Ive seen top class overseas players struggle in uk, especially hull FC who is my team in uk. For variety reason things don work out.

For one, by choice Wakefield trinity is not a club I woud join. Mount smart looks like a world class stadium compared to there dump of a ground and for a long time they have been short of cash.

Good luck to isasac John a penrith, hopefully he has a shocker tonight.

not quite so simple, after all do you know what plan ME is working to, it may be 1 year, but it MAY be a 2 or 3 year plan. Last year was a disaster, most teams don't win the comp just after a disaster. And we don't know what the agreement is with the owners is.

I dont buy season tickets to hopefully win a premiership in a year or 2. Maybe they should say that when they go for new membership drives to get new members or season ticket holders. "Be a Warriors Member" we wont win this year as our coach and management are trying to implement a 2 or 3 year plan. This is professional sport, a professional club not some training school that players graduate from.....

I and im sure other Warriors fans want is a winning team and then a premiership. If they cant deliver it then get rid of them and get people who do, simple

not so simple when we cant get the coaches we want or the players we want. Last year was a disaster, a rebuilding year is common

Well folks, it's goodbye from me and all the best. I am not going to follow them anymore and this will be my last post. I will not involve myself and waste any time and energy with an inept, lazy overpaid bunch of fools like they are.

the most pleasing thing for me was seeing Shaun Johnson get hooked. Says to me Elliott is losing the faith and ready to make some changes. (I hope)

its seemed more like "timeout now go and sit in the corner and come back when you have something nice to say"

He'll be starting next week

I'm sure he will be there next week. but at least there is some intent by Elliott instead of what has happened in the last 9 rounds

Isaac John would have to be one of the most underrated Warriors since Joe Galavao.

Time and space was the thing I liked about that guy , he created time and space.

Very composed player ( starting to sound like what we need now )

It's interesting how coaches ( Cleary in this instance ) let people go then review the decision in another life......kinda what we are pinning our hopes on with Elliot.

After last night, I'd say he'd be the best half we'd currently have (if we'd kept him)...
