I reckon Kearney has them working the back line moves as the only priority. I don't reckon Sheck is going to go against the game plan either. He's not that kind of player.

And looking at how our edges worked yesterday I'm pretty happy for them to be playing that strategy.

I always reckon working well practiced structures works a lot better under pressure, than constantly hunting for a line break which may or may not happen depending on how strong or weak the defense is.

They just need to settle into their structures, so they become second nature and they can play eyes up footy at the same time. That's when we win the comp IMO. Nothing else will do it.

Toovey tried to mention RTS as one of the best in the game right now and the rest of the panel looked shocked as they were busy riding Tedescos dick.

On a side note...anyone else noticed how his supporting runs have almost completely dissappeared? Its kind of sad when you see guys like Tedesco and Charnze running next to the ball carrier almost every play in hopes of a offload..
Hard to back up players when you are being first receiver so much. Hopefully with Kodi Nikorima here RTS can go back to chiming in the line when he see's fit instead of playing third halfback trying to take pressure off CHT or AK. He needs to get out of that role ASAP...

This is a screenshot from RTS’s Wikipedia page. Check out the tries scored figures.

The ratio of tries scored to appearances playing for the Warriors (0.29) as compared to the Roosters (0.33) is not as good, though there’s nothing serious there. But the tries/appearances ratio as a Kiwi international (0.81) is way, way ahead of either. He’s nearly three times more likely to score a try playing for the Kiwis as he is playing for us.

Of course, this is no criticism at all of Roger. He’s easily the best player we have. But it’s curious. ???

He spent his first 7 tests on the wing, trotted up 8 tries. That’ll do it.

He is starting to sniff around the ruck area. Remember KNs try, the gap opened be ause they chose RTS as the danger on the inside.

Not always what he does is effective, it is his presence that confuses defences as well.

A lot of people angry on social media. Aussies calling bs & thought Tedesco should of got it. And Tongans saying the same about Taukeiaho...zzzzzz shut up....lol
People saying tedesco because he carved up origin- that’s just a glorified australian trial lmao- gtfo.
Taukiaho must’ve been close- missed some crucial tackles in their loss to nz which probably cost him in the end.
Rts deserves it- wouldn’t swap him for anyone.

Well done RTS. Is this our 3rd player to get the golden boot, Jones and Johnson?

The weighing is heavily on international games, so if Australia want to play 2 games while Tonga, NZ and GB play more, then they get more of a weighting and chance to win. Fuck the Aussies whinge like Poms at times

They're worse IMO, entitled as hell when it comes to League.
come on! they are not worse than us - we invented the word and we have perfected the art- we've got bugger all else; don't take our whingeing away from us. You bastards all have it in for us!

It's the same scenario as with Origin and the Dally M's. And RTS still won that too. He is the only reason for hope in this Warriors side..

I admire RTS a lot. It's just a shame no one else in the club can lift their game for him.
Seems a bit like the players think Rogers going to create the spark for all of them as they expected Shaun Johnson to.
Don't think it's any coincidence our best team showing this year was against the storm with RTS out and many players playing out of position. They had to step up.
Last year his goal line defence was amazing, this year looking noticeably musclier he added taking kick offs and drop outs to his arsenal and the odd grubber becoming a last tackle kicking option aswell as his always present running game and the odd freakish offload.
Next year I hope he is given a free licence and hovers around the ruck as Tedesco has done this year.
