There's 16 teams but it's only a 9 week season and 3 week finals series so I think it'll be top 6 with 1st and 2nd placed teams getting a bye in the first finals week maybe.Where do you have to finish to play finals? Tough game next week, does anyone know where Laban is?
Interesting points.Was at the game, it honestly looked like men playing against boys. The Roosters team was on another level, especially in the halves. Lots of Warrior turnovers thanks to loose carries combined with the Roosters defenders targeting the ball.
Their props were huge. Delasalle Va'a, who the Roosters poached from Broncos as a 15 year old a few years ago, was listed as 6'4 and 115kgs at 15 and looked like he was 6'6 and over 120kgs now. The other starting prop was a big unit too.
Ratu had a bad game but I thought our backs looked a bit faster overall than the Roosters backs. Ralphy Sio had some strong carries and scored a good wingers try. The other winger was getting schooled though. The boys had a lot of scoring opportunities that they couldn't convert into points which is on the playmakers in the team.
The Warriors boys are spinning every pass, maybe it's come from their school rugby background. It stood out to me when the dummy half was taking fractionally longer to spin pass the ball to his runner that was only 3m away from him and the runner was having to reach back to catch the ball.
If there was one player on the field destined for 1st grade, it would be Va'a.Interesting points.
Yeah Va’a is some prospect. Was huge deal when he got poached from Brisbane a couple years ago. Absolute monster.
The other wing who was getting schooled was Piliu who is actually a fullback/half (albeit not a very good one). Surprising that they don’t have a back up wing in their squad they can call on especially since it was a home game.
Interesting take on the spiral passes. I actually prefer spiral passes in almost all situations except for a prop running onto the ball from the dummy half. The loopy non-spiral passes for anything more than 5 meter do my absolute head in. I think it’s a skill that a lot of NRL players never properly developed.
Noticed a lot of piss poor 1 on 1 missed tackles in the highlights and a general lack of urgency to clean up kicks (couple on Ratu). Something hopefully Blairsy will be giving them a spray over.
4 game losing streakHow are the SG BAll team going? I’ve not heard anything since the reserve grade team kicked off
Average. From what I've seen, they have decent forwards. But their spine players have no direction - the halves are not really halves. The centres are both turnstiles defensively. They've also lost their far and away best player in Halasima the last couple weeks who's been playing NSW cup.How are the SG BAll team going?

Any standouts individually so far this game?4-14 Magpies.
No real cohesion with this team. Too many errors at the moment. Magpies looking a lot more organised but there's some brilliant individuals in our team. Just need to work as a team...
Must be why the top side going so well, we learnt a lot over last few yearsWarriors boys getting much needed development, you learn more from losses than wins.
