Based on the 5mins Sipley was on the field we know he is a good defender at this level? Gubb was good today, how was his defence last few weeks? What exactly did Hoffman do today? Matulino/Liiyman dont miss tackles that Mannering cleans up week in week out?

Luke isnt 80mins hooker, so we need Jazz to start the game and maybe he can give one of the back rowers a bit of a break later in the game...that should be Jazz's role

It was a good win, but lets not forget that we played the dragons today. They didnt throw anything at us, particualry in the second half. as has been said million times in the commentary, in their last 5 games, they've scored 3 points in second half...thats who we've played.

Matulino doesnt miss tackles because half the time he chooses not to go into make a tackle and lets someone else (Mannering) do it instead

we play him long mins for no reason to be honest...why a prop has to play 70mins I'll never know. Give him a decent break and he's pretty effective.

Fair call re your last message, it is early days so we shouldnt get too carried away, I hope they keep this team with a couple of changes (Loloheia and Matulino) for the next 3 games at least. Im not saying Hoffman is better than Mannering but to me its one or the other. They are both lacking in different areas imo (one on attack, one on defence).

Regarding playing Matulino 70, I think they do that because they think hes a world class prop like other teams possess, capable of playing 80 if require, maybe hes just not.

how many world class props play 80mins though...Looking at stats...Jesse Bromwich against us last week played 47mins. Nate Myles who's known for having a big motor played 50 yesterday...Matt Scott 41 and James Tamou 58...
Yes, if there is injury they may have to play long mins...but that being your game plan doesnt make sense aye.

Well done Jim and McFadden for standing up to those other fellas. The non committed lot. The ridiculous 6 look even more pathetic now.

Well done to those 17 Warriors who stood up and did the jersey proud today. Absolutely thrilled with the effort and commitment, brilliant win well deserved. 9 years since we last beat them in a competition match, awesome effort!

Fusitua seems to have hardened up.. putting his body on the line more often then not.

Johnson, Luke, Gubb, Jazz, Allwood.. awesome stuff

Save the not so good stuff for another time but let these guys enjoy their moment.

Another note.. Hurrell looking dejected and sad like he already knows he's getting sacked. Too late for that shit, see ya later buddy.
