Rolling through opposition pack
Setting up in attacking zone
Strong try line D for multiple sets
These things I see us doing well

Scoring points
Discipline and not giving away 6 more
These things I’m concerned about

Titans 10 - 6 lead halftime
Warriors 24 - 16 for the win

I think on balance we should win a tight one.
For the Warriors new coach, exciting recruits, and returning players from injury and availability.

The Tits have recruited very well and no longer the easy beats, and have a very good coach.

I believe the fact that the Warriors having been in a camp environment should give them the edge, even though there is a good argument that they as a team need to gel and understand new systems.

If we go out there thinking we will run all over the Titans and have the lions share of the momentum we will get a hiding.

If we find out we are losing the arm wrestle, and people start trying fifty fifties to cheat our way out of the grind, we will get a farking big hiding.

The Warriors need to be patient today. Like they were in the trial game. When they went down behind on the score board, they kept ticking over the sets, nothing too complicated, just doing the boring stuff, grinding up the middle.

We have bought a V8 engine, they better use it, because the Titans will use theirs.

I will be very happy if our forwards get under pressure and show some patience.

Same old same old. The team needs to be deliberate, and to use the power in the middle to slowly wrestle control of the game from them.

They better be ready for a fast start from the Tits, they really hate us, so they have the motivation factor on their side, we potentially only have complacency.

Don't get me wrong, I am really excited, but traditionally our teams are slow starters, in fact terrible starters to the comp, that is a mental issue.

Sure, pre season conditioning plays a role in Warriors poor seasons starts, but that is because they are mentally weak in training.

Go boys, go smart and hard go long. You can do all three.

After watching most of the three games so far I have never been so worried about the lack of speed in this Warriors team.
Egan's not a guy who has speed off the mark to get out from dummy half, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck doesn't appear to be quick as off the mark as what he once was and he has a fair bit on in this team so aside from Kodi (who drifts in and out of games) what is there to split teams up the middle as the likes of Ryan Papenhuyzen did on Thursday night.
I'm a big fan of Hayze but I think Brown and co might have to find a way to get Paul Turner into the 17 somehow.
Defence is and always will be the most important thing but speed through the middle is becoming more and more important has fatigue sets in.
Offloads could be huge for the Warriors but it's a fine line as look how much of a role errors have played in the first three games.
Poor old Kevin Locke, in his prime, would have been an untapped weapon under these new rules

We could also hope the Titans have been reading a bit of their own press as the Rabbits did. Granted we're not the Storm, but could be a nice little leg up if we get off to a good start.

Early arvo game and 30 degrees. Is a good thing the boys are better acclimatised this season, and not wearing black as our home jersey anymore.

Can't help but feel that the team's downfall could be the halves. We need a 6 or 7 who can take control of the team and guide them around the field. Someone who makes good decisions in the attacking 20, puts up accurate kicks. Hopefully Chanel Harris-Tavita gets a decent run this season to show us what he can do.
