Pumped for tonight’s game fellas. I think it will be a close game, but if we have a good completion rate and are able to be patient and build pressure (I feel this is where we struggled last week 2nd half) I think we’ve got the Cowboys covered.

Pressure the young half Dearden as he’s got a few errors in him.

As a Coach said to my team in my playing days "rugby is a simple game, otherwise they wouldn't let you stupid pricks play it'.

If they keep it simple like last week, complete sets, support the ball carrier, don't do silly passes and offloads, give the spine the chance to play field position and tackle their arses off. Possession, Position, Pace, there is the game in a nutshell.

Once A Warrior

Huge game in the context of the season so far. Without a doubt we will miss Jazz Tavaga with his line speed on defence, I thought he lead the lads well last week in that department. Fortunately for the warriors Josh Curren slots into that position so looking for him to lead that tonight.

Also a huge game for Bunty Afoa! I don't think we will miss mich in the way of effort there.

I think this Walsh is building to a big performance, the back five need to bust their gut to help the forwards today.

Warriors in a close one.

GET IT DONE!

Some jam ahead of tonight's match at 8pm (NZT) vs the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys:

- In the last 5 encounters between the teams a Field Goal has been kicked by the winning side on 4 occasions.
- The all-time record between these teams is Warriors 22 Wins – North Queensland 21 Wins.
- Euan Aitken has scored tries in 4 consecutive games vs the Cowboys including a double the last time the teams played.
- A Winger has been a try scorer for NQ in 9 consecutive games vs the NZW and a combined 18 tries have been scored by those Wingers during these matches.
- Kyle Feldt has 12 tries in his 9 appearances against the Warriors.
- Shaun Johnson has won his last 6 games against the Cowboys & has scored 55 points across those matches.
- The Warriors haven’t managed to score a try in the last 154, second half, minutes they’ve played.
- The Warriors are yet to concede any second half points in the 2 matches they’ve played at Dolphin Stadium.
- Referee, Todd Smith, will control just his third NRL match & it will be his first since August 2019.

That Shaun Johnson Stat gave me some hope.

Shaun Johnson is a confidence player, like all players from the NZ system.

Could be over analyzing here, but I think the trys conceded to Cowboy Wingers in 9 games straight from a club who has struggled to lay on any width in their attack, supports the theory that the Warriors play sides into form

But Johnson is the key, when he has the wood on a team he is pretty hard to shut down.

Two very even teams if Addin Fonua-Blake is indeed fit, otherwise we are under powered and really looking leaky through the middle with Jazz gone.

Compounding problem, no Jazz means more minutes for Nikorima, means more leaks.

Our back three have a nightmare in containing Holmes. Shaun Johnson has to get those kicks right, and we need a three man chase. A job for Curran.

I love Friday night footie. A win here will be huge....could earn them a C+ from the supporter base.....everything to play for then.

If there was any decent doubt he would have been cut already. Safe to say he is playing.

I think if lodge and Addin Fonua-Blake can set the tone again, we should go well.

Really like Curran back to the middle, he has looked great there but we will miss jazz line speed and i can guarantee it will be poor without him. Jazz has a huge impact just with his linespeed alone thay no other player on the team really has.

Let Shaun Johnson and walsh play off the back of the platform laid by our props, kick well and limit penalties, defend the edges like last week, limit holmes and taumalolos impact and pressure their halves and we will win.

The thing with the cowboys is they are a team that never stops trying, so if we dont put a good score on them early expect to have heart problems late in the match.

26 - 22 warriors.

No idea which way this is gonna go, just hope we improve and build on our last couple of wins.
A solid win here would do the world of good for our confidence and might see us nap a result in at least one of the tough matches coming up.
A loss, particularly a bad one and you might as well write off the next month

Looking forward to this game, will probably be our toughest game thus far! I’m fairly confident, but the main thing that concerns me is containing Holmes and Hiku in the centres. I think we’ll miss Berrys defence if he doesn’t play, but at the same time I don’t think there’s any need to rush him back if he’s not 100%, as he has looked fairly clunky on attack so far this season. I’d also like to see him come back on the right side, when he comes back.

With the Roosters and Storm up next this one is pretty important for both the ladder and a shot of confidence.

Agree fully - already there’s 2 games that in reality, we probably should have won. A 3rd in 5 weeks would be catastrophic.

It sucks too because had we won those first 2 (and this one) it would set us up only having to win 7 out of the last 20 to make the finals. Not that scraping into the 8 is what we’re aiming for, but imagine having that pressure off of us

Its not just the next 2 rounds, its really the next 8 weeks, we could be 4/12, or even worse if we do not win today. Luckily the last half of the year is easier but still has top 8 teams, we got the pennies twice etc.

Really those first 2 games were critical to win as supposed easy games. Lets hope we have progressed our offensive training and no weak edges, same as last weeks defense on the edge please.

Who plays the u20 and RG games now on TV? Was thinking of reinstating my Kayo but not sure if they or anyone is playing the other games anymore since Covid? I feel out of sorts not knowing who is coming through the comp etc with my own eyes.
