Interesting game for TP, can he pull this rabble together to go back to back or will they just fall into the same behaviours we have grown to love.

There is a lot on the line surprisingly. This game may go a long way to developing his reputation as a 1st grade coach. I like the guy so I hope the team responds accordingly.

We should win my arse.

There are no two teams in this comp more similar and evenly matched.

I’ve been watching the Titans this year. They look a little better than us, although it is closer than they would like.

Usually we let ourselves down in these games where we supposedly have an easier opponent.

Hope we win, no expecting it.

Got an optimistic feeling...strong side we're putting out. Positive mentality after last week, no Matt Chechin which is a huge bonus.
Thinking and anticipating a well justified, decent win, but very nervous of a close game and a 1 or 2 point loss right at the end inevitably leading to a generally depressing weekend.

These 2 points are huge for our squad...and the growing chances of making the 8. Conversely, avoiding 15-16 position becomes more difficult too following a loss to the Titans :oops:

The thing I like about the Titans is that they generally are an 'honest' side, not playing for penalties all the time and often on the rough end of Sydney ref calls. Very Warrior like in many respects. Looking forward to the game, both teams will give it a good go.

Looking at the Titans line up.. Even for the Titans it's a shite line up.

Sam Stone starting, 2 second rowers playing centre (is this a Cleary coached Warriors side or what?), 1 in his second match, the other is a known rubbish defender (Cartwright). A rookie winger on debut. With arguably our strongest back line up of the season, I would expect Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Hiku, Fusitua and big Ken to pepper the edges. They also have Warriors reject starting at 9. The bench looks solid to be fair.

I'm really interested to see how Payten plays Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. Kearney's game plan with him was awful, and he hasn't even had a line break this season. Thinking with a few weeks to train a new gameplan, fingers crossed he can explode.

This is a real swing game for us, if we lose we're basically dead for the season. If we get a win, we're alive and hopefully building some confidence.

I am honestly concerned how many people have latched on to Heathrington as the saviour for the team. Hes a loan player that is known for giving away penalties and has played ONE game for the warriors. Personally before throwing a contract his way i would want to see more and know hes not going to be another Sam Lisone type.

hope he and the rest of the team pull a blinder tonight, but i have noticed over the last week or two that the comp is tightening up. the differences between teams is reducing. (yet to watch last nights game, so cant comment on that one), so i am expecting a tighter score line.

Yeah the interviews with Hetherington indicate he is itching for an opportunity with the Panthers and this is certainly a short term situation.
