Nah, we hired him because we had no other option at the time.
Walker brothers were available. Toovey threw himself at us, but I guess he was also tarnished.

I would have gone walker brothers this time over paul Green who was shaping as next cab off the rank after webster per newspaper reports.
 
Wrighty needs to eat humble pie and admit he got it wrong when he repeatedly claimed Kosi should never be picked in first grade ever again. A hat trick of tries and 137 running meters in a losing team is a great effort. Just showed what it means to be picked in your right position and not being expected to be able to perform on the left side when you are a right side player. Well done Ed Kosi.
I will eat humble pie if he posts a twenty try season like Ken and David have. Not changing my position at this stage.
That 70 point loss was horrible for the Warriors brand. He was 100 percent all by himself the reason they scored 70 rather than us keeping them to 50 something points like we normally do.
If you want to dispute that analysis you are on shaky ground Once they sniffed blood on his wing the Storm were pricks about it and went to Kosi's wing relentlessly in the second half and got a try virtually every time.
Had Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and Montoya been our wings that evening we would have lost 55 to 12 or something and nobody would have cared. The extra 15 to 18 odd points that got is where the humiliation began.
People came on to this web site and read quotes like this
"This loss hurts"
"This loss and giving up 70 was humiliating".
That wasn't p;ayers saying that. Members of this forum were humiliated and that is all on Kosi that night.

Also he played left side on Friday just like he did against the Storm.

He should have been sacked as a player that day. There is nothing inherently wrong or embarassing in driving a forklift or stacking shelves in a warehouse as that is what many members of this forum do as some of my acquaintances at church drive a forklift for a living. There was nothing wrong with the calls for Kosi to go back to the warehouse as there is nothing wrong with warehouses to begin with. It is an honest profession and what he is best cut out for.

This email is slightly tongue in cheek but I am not ready to concede on Kosi yet.

He didn’t lower Egan down in the tackle, NAS jumping off the ground, launching himself airborne and falling elbow first onto his face… legitimate tackle technique apparently 🙁

Instead of lowering Egan to the ground NAS jumps backwards.

Airborne and gets full 120 weigh behind elbow.

Elbow below his own feet, which are still off the ground, his elbow smashed into Egans head right as it hits the ground

Seriously! I think this is where we need make a stand! Not just the Warriors, but all clubs. The NRL is so inconsistent and corrupt right now.
There must be a way that the fans of Rugby League can stand up and stop this shit from happening every week!

Its crazy what some teams can do, and others cant.
Look at this and compare it to when Jazz pushed Nathan Brown in the Parra game last year.
Or Fuss being knocked out cold by Latrell.
There are so many examples of extreme inconsistency that it cannot be simple human error!

I'm glad you finished that post with the admission that it was slightly tongue in cheek, because quite frankly your reasoning was, to quote your favourite word, egregious. But we all think differently on different people. I just hope Kosi wins you over the same way Manu won us over after he had a shocker early in his career.

Your a good bloke. Thanks for the conversation!
We are all here to converse with each other so very happy to find people who don't mind opposing points of view. I chuckled at egregious call out and was flattered that you asked for my view earlier in the thread.
I am just a poster here like everyone else. Occassionally, when inspired, I can post a prolific amount of content in a given month so people sometimes remember my posts !
I enjoy reading people's posts more than making my own and view my efforts as creating a conversation that will lead for more replies for me to read. I am in my happy space when I come home from work and find 5 pages of new content to read on the keys to the warriors turning their fortunes around next year! Next year will be our year !!!

I agree, i'm only an occasional poster but an avid reader everyday here. As a passionate Warriors supporter its the first site i log on to everyday. I wasn't trying to have a go at you i just wanted to call you out on the Kosi call. I thought he had done enough in his last 2 games to make you think your call was a bit of an over reaction. But you obviously need a bit more proof lol, all good. But like i said, i hope he does change your mind.
 
Not sure why the NRL protects the purple filth so much, they aren't going to make inroads into the AFL market anymore than they already have, Broncos, some of the big Sydney teams, sure, origin next week, no suspensions, you expect that from the felons but why help the storms as much as they do?
I dont know what you're suggesting here buddy, so what if their 50% shareholder made his fortune in the gambling racket, there's no conflict of interests here, nor is there any hint of organized crime or corruption in the Australian gambling industry, the nrl or at the Melbourne Storm, trust me bro.

There’s the Hughes try when he targeted an injured Chanel Harris-Tavita too, they took most of their opportunities. There’s been plenty of players played out of position where they had success, most of Shaun Johnson time at sharks was five eighth but that game was a real return to a managing halfback in him that is the best version going forward for us. You could tell he really wanted to win that. He learnt from the Sivo intercept and went over the top. Walsh had a great game though I was he had have just shovelled that ball along to Aitken instead of to Kosi, Aitken’s strength close to the line would have been unstoppable. Encouraged to see we’re starting to come up in a line on defence rather than hanging back.
My single biggest bitch with the warriors, is ignoring opportunities as 5hey come up.
Last week playing Canberra, I was at the game. The raiders fb. Is on the ground 40 meters behind his team with a trainer. Did they kick early, did they find the gap or overlap. Did they even run at him and they a change of direction? No they gave him no pressure and eventually he came good and rejoined the attack.
Opportunity lost Game lost.

Yup, A constant problem is the lack of leadership and game awareness on the field. Until we fix that basic part of the team it won't matter much at all in terms of results. Hopefully Webster has a strong view on leadership

If you want to hear why NAS was not charged pull up Annesley's briefing today and listen to Luke Patten of the MRC explaining why the decision not charged was arrived at

Some comments taken from the clip

"created space - no force to the neck"
"extra player involved"

What I found interesting (being pedantic as I am) that throughout the clip Patten referred to NAS as Nelson and WE as Egan not sure why he couldn't also refer to our man as Wayde

Fair comment, however it is not as easy as it looks.
Melbourne in particular train for all contingencies so that everybody knows what he has to do the minute it happens. That gets drummed into them right through the grades so they come to first grade ready to go.
Our skipper is ex Melbourne and so is the assistant coach, they know this,
so it is more than just knowing what they do...
and to pay credit to Kosi's three tries Melbourne just could not adjust on the field, when it was obvious what was on early in the movement. What concerns me is the player who threw the excellent passes is gone after this season.

I still have more faith in this team than I have had in a long time.

No force on the neck. What about the rest of the head region. He created space and pretty much slammed like he was in professional wrestling.

I can't remember if I heard it in union or in league. Think it was union as they are real strict on the head. The tackler has a duty of care for the ball carrier. If this was charged you would think it would of been a slam dunk for the prosecution.

There were a few incidents over the weekend. I am interested to see how much discussion this one gets. Think most of the attention will be around the Cleary tackle.
