I miss jungle ball too! but surly you mean inside their 30 right?
Nope, outside our 30m zone (tackle 2 or 3 and above usually) we should be throwing shape at them. Small shapes in each channel/3rd and use the ball.

We have size, if we hold our width in attack and follow above we’ll tire them out a lot sooner.

We know we can complete sets, but can we do it using the ball properly? I think so.
 
Look at those ratings last week, highest rated Reece Walsh, lowest rated Kodi. He is utility bound again, Im just hoping they have the cameras on him when he is told his skill sets are limited and he is best used at 9 to keep the game simple for him and his ability to get off the mark quickly and you would think a 6 should be able to clear the ruck fast. He will be so unhappy, oh, has he been happy yet lol.

Walsh and Chanel Harris-Tavita until we can sign a marquee 6 for the rest of the year is how Id go and leave Roger Tuivasa-Sheck at the back. Walsh knows what time it is both in the halves and as a FB, he doesnt need 2/3 a season in the NRL to prepare him to play there. But the Warriors do desperately need his half back talents.
 
So we five backs who are highly vulnerable in defence.

Reece Walsh
Kosi
Berry
Maumalo
Nikorima.

No prizes for guessing where we need a miracle. Back rowers are going to have to work over time.

Cows are going to post a fair number of points on our edges, we will have to use Walsh's boot to dominate possession and territory here.
 
"Josh Curran will take his place in the side after successfully arguing for a downgrade on a careless high tackle at the NRL judiciary on Tuesday"

And what happens to the officials who sent him off for an accidental head clash?

They hold the players accountable but never the damn refs. So much corruption there still, and I dont mean just against the Warriors.

Our backline is so farked on defence that we need more ball than the Cows and we need to wrack up the Trys.

Come on Warriors pull off a miracle here. Kodi mate how about you farking tackle this week so there is one less hole.

Wow preemptive negativity.
Ease up lads, we got this.
I’m more concerned about still having the black Moko in the Gameday graphic....

If Kodi sucks at 7 (which is quite possible), somebody will call "cattletruck" and one of the bench players will feign a head injury, and be replaced by the 18th man Sean O'Sullivan, great decoy from the warriors haha.

Geeze this Warriors team nearly looks like a top 4 team, Chanel Harris-Tavita back and a quality 6 and hopefully Kodi can finally accept his fate as utlity or starting 9 and we should have one dang fast and X factor spine. I personally would now (have changed my mind) liked to have seen us put speed on one of our wings, ie Paul Turner.

We lack real speed aside from Walsh across the board, how quick is Aitken, surely not winger quick?

With the news on Aiden, we should be looking pretty within 4 weeks with potentially Chanel Harris-Tavita and Aiden both returning around the same time.

And nobody knows for sure or not if Princess has paid Paul Kemp to write a Smoke Screen and upon signing ask for immediate release, love or loath hes the best 6 we will ever have a chance of signing, then we can concentrate on getting Kodi up to sratch at 9 and hopefully get out ruck speed down from 3.7s to 3.2-3.2s like when we had an A rated spine with Luke.
 
Our backline may have crap defence, but so do the Cowboys backline, maybe worse.
I think we will see Walsh unleashed on them and their forwards around the 30min mark in 2nd half, if we have our usual high completion rate and just keep pinning them back in their 30 and getting repeat sets via a Walsh grubber.

Just please dont let Kodi get the ball as our main kicker, mostly definitely not in offense, dont mind him clearly the ball, but those redzone bombs of his arent good enough for an outback leagues club 3rd team. Scares me he is 7 and walsh 6, but provided walsh is doing the offensive execution we should smash them in the final 20. Kodi, dont fail us now partner, we got a lovely utility jumper waiting for you, if you can manage our way through to Chanel Harris-Tavita returning.
 
According to Todd they rotate their bench forwards based on who is not moving laterally in defence well.

That is the order he uses to send some one on and pull someone off.

So he is working with a negative model.

Good luck with that.

It means every time you as a player are hooked, it is because you are seen as not doing your job.

Over time that type of micro managing can have negative psychological effects, I prefer our model, roll on the big bench when the big starters have earned the rest.

Todd also reminded us that he has made statements in a couple of press conferences, he therefore is coming across as a very insecure and defensive coach.

Fk em up Warriors.
 
We have got this boys. Don't know much about Kosi but hope he goes well.
Well with these comments about our excessive young talent in the outer backs, he must be the next Latrell lol. But honestly, I just hope he holds his own.

Im confident in the team either way. But I do know where it will be lost if we play like we did vs Newc and Manly and I just hope eventually nothing saves Kodi and Egan from being replaced by marquee players. Because with that fixed, we truely have the talent of a top 4 team across the board, the only thing missing is another speedster outside Walsh. Look at the Storm, nearly everybody is fast in the backs.
