Those jerseys are fuckin horrendous. Not even related to the Warriors except for this seasons women in league round!!!



Yeah they’re ghastly. Should’ve just copied the men’s jerseys like Roosters and Dragons.

They’ve also most likely used purple cause it’s a “girls colour”. Lame.

Prior to the game I heard somebody close to the club say they wouldn't be surprised if the Warriors were beaten by 40 points after their showing in the second game against Auckland.

Also throw in the fact that their flight was diverted to Brisbane, meaning most of them got about 4 hours sleep, that win on Saturday was pretty remarkable.

Great defence in that second half where you could feel the Roosters were coming back.

On to the Dragons next, who were thumped by the Broncos. Let's hope they fly over a bit earlier and don't have to stay in a random city.

WOMEN'S RUGBY LEAGUE

Nuuausala ruled out of Dragons contest
Richard Becht & Photosport.nz

Hard-hitting front rower Annetta Nuuausala has been ruled out of the Warriors' second-round NRL women's premiership clash against St George Illawarra at ANZ Stadium on Saturday (5.10pm kick-off local time; 7.10pm NZT).

The 23-year-old Kiwi Fern had a huge impact in the opening minutes of the club's 10-4 win over the Sydney Roosters last Saturday, memorably flattening Zahara Temara with a thundering tackle near the Warriors' line.

It proved to be Nuuausala's last act of the game as she was forced to leave the field after just 15 minutes with a leg injury picked up in making the tackle.

She hasn't recovered in time to be named by coach Luisa Avaiki for this week's outing against the Dragons. Avaiki has listed 2017 Kiwi Fern Crystal Tamarua to replace Nuuausala.

The rest of the squad came through the gruelling defensive battle against the Roosters, a match which was scoreless in the second half as the Warriors courageously withstood everything thrown at them.

They made 243 tackles in the 60-minute encounter, almost 50 more than the Roosters. Hooker Krsytal Rota made a game-high 34 tackles while captain Laura Mariu and bench forward TJ Noble-Bell both finished with 24.

Topping the metres gained were second rower Onjeurlina Leiataua (113), fullback Apii Nicholls (95), Sarina Clark (91) and back rower Alice Vailea (81).

While the Flight Centre-sponsored Warriors started with a victory, the Dragons fell to a 4-30 loss to the Brisbane Broncos.

WOMEN'S RUGBY LEAGUE

Five Warriors in NRLW team of the week
Alicia Newton
Tue 11 Sep 2018, 07:01 AM

The opening round of the inaugural NRL Holden Women's Premiership kicked off with two high quality games and some incredible individual performances.

The Warriors had to overcome a flight diversion the night before Saturday's match, stunning the more fancied Roosters by carving out an early 10-0 lead in slippery conditions and relying on staunch defence for the rest of the game to claim a 10-4 victory.

Brisbane backed up their strong trial form with a dominant 30-4 win in humid conditions at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.

nrlw-team-of-the-week_20180910-1.jpg

1. Chelsea Baker (Brisbane Broncos) – An easy choice for player of the round. Stepped up enormously for her side with two tries, five goals and 165 running metres. Put her name in the history books for the first Broncos four-pointer in the NRLW competition.

2. Julia Robinson (Brisbane Broncos) – A solid performance from the talented recruit, despite sporting a nasty head injury after colliding with Dragons centre Jess Sergis. Finished the game with 89 running metres and topped the Broncos' tackle-break count with six.

3. Honey Hireme (St George Illawarra Dragons) – The only Dragons player to run for more than 100 metres in a solid display moving to the centres. Also came up with an equal game high 11 tackle breaks. Needs more ball in round two.

4. Isabelle Kelly (Sydney Roosters) – In a side that struggled for cohesion, Kelly was dangerous with every touch of the ball. Was well contained by an impressive Warriors outfit but still churned out a high work rate to go with the first ever Roosters try.

5. Hilda Mariu (NZ Warriors) – Made history by scoring the first NRLW try, crossing in the eighth minute against the Roosters, and was defensively clean on the right edge containing the dangerous pairing of Isabelle Kelly and Taleena Simon.

6. Laura Mariu (NZ Warriors) – A professional performance from the veteran playmaker. Set up what turned to be the match-winner in the first half with a deft cut-out pass, before coming up with a bone-rattling hit late on Isabelle Kelly.

7. Ali Brigginshaw (Brisbane Broncos) – A captain's knock in a sharp performance for the Broncos. Scored a try and played a hand in two more. Ran for 105 metres alone.

8. Ngatokotoru Arakua (Brisbane Broncos) – One of the many surprise packets that will be discovered throughout the NRLW competition. The Broncos prop made impact as she entered the field and finish with 113 running metres, two line breaks and a four-pointer.

9. Brittany Breayley (Brisbane Broncos) – Topped the tackle count with 29 and set up two tries in an all-round quality performance. Left the field in the second half with an elbow injury in the only concern for the Jillaroos representative moving forward.

10. Chloe Caldwell (Sydney Roosters) – Got the Roosters moving forward when she was injected into the game, enabling the Tricolours to get on the front foot with 111 metres. Could force her way into the starting side if her form continues.

11. Onjeurlina Leiataua (NZ Warriors) – A barnstorming performance from the back-rower to inspire her team to victory. Ran for 113 running metres from 13 carries, made four tackle breaks and was defensively sound.

12. Maitua Feterika (Brisbane Broncos) – Looked a threat with every touch of the football to charge her way over the line in the first half. Came up with an uncharacteristic nine missed tackles in the only major concern for the Kiwi Ferns representative.

13. Luisa Gago (NZ Warriors) – Got through a mountain of work in the middle and was among the Warriors' best in shutting down the Roosters forward pack momentum. Ran a good line off Laura Mariu in what turned out to be the match-winning try.

14. Sam Bremner (St George Illawarra Dragons) – Couldn't do much more for her side given the scoreline against her. Ran in for the Red V's only four-pointer of the afternoon and made 11 tackle breaks alone.

15. Krystal Rota (NZ Warriors) – Not the shortest dummy half but looked sharp in the position to help deliver the side's first try, before churning out 10 runs and 35 tackles in a quality 60-minute display.

16. Victoria Latu (Sydney Roosters) – Similar to Caldwell, prop Latu provided a burst of energy for the Tricolours late in the first half and continued to make yardage with every carry.

17. Kezie Apps (St George Illawarra Dragons) – Was dominant in defence and rightfully targeted by the Broncos when she carried the ball. Topped the Dragons count with post-contact metres and made two offloads.

Feterika could've, should've been a Warrior too?
Quite rightly the Brisbane Broncos promoted her signing as a star recruitment coup.
My favorite player. Reallly pisses me off we didnt sign her, as I post this she is the forward in the Broncos Roosters clash making the most rounded contribution both sides of the ball ( tbf I was a huge fan of her test match form).

What an athlete. Big hitter, clean up tackler, foot work at the line, charging runs, intimidating, highly professional.
She should have been the face of the game here....a one hundred meter running backrower.

Btw the Broncs are smashing the chooks 14 nil as I write, I had hoped the Roosters who pushed us would have pressed the Broncs.

Like the Warriors the Broncs have outstanding defence.

I dont like how their ball playing is far superior.

I dont like that we havent recruited Jillaroos....while the other teams are well balanced with Kiwis.

Just goes to show how our geographical isolation, our relative unatractiveness as a life style option-disadvantages us probably even more so in this new and amazing iteration of rugby league (1995 we had Greg Alexander... super Star half...legendary utility Phil Blake....Monie etc)

Ffs you wouldnt think we would play underdog to any team in the WNRLs inaugural season.

I'll admit it, i like watching the ladies play....

It takes me back to the 80's....big forwards, big hits and good fast and mainly small outside backs....usually taking advantage of the big tired forwards.

Yes it's a bit slower and there are a few more mistakes, but it's a good game to watch, almost rugby league in the raw....less contrived than the men if you get my meaning.

Yep its the real game.

When you consider the lack of resources and coaching to date, the future of the Womans game is really exciting,, they should ban the wrestle before some dickhead coach wrecks their game with it.

Agree, but i don't think they will be fit enough for the wrestle....not a sexist comment, but the fact, and i could be wrong here, most or all are not full time players. I think being super fit allows for the wrestle.

I don't think this will happen to the extent of the men.

If i was the Warriors coach, I'd be trying to improve the long kicking game. Getting teams to turn around and running backwards and taking the ball out from within there 20 is always hard.

Good point bro, i dont think it is sexist to comment on fitness between gender, as you rightly pointed out, the Women have family and career factors ( the very same that historically affected the mens competitions without the added load of Motherhood).
To be honest im all over the Womens comp, its like a fresh start for the Warriors brand on so many levels ( we have a one in four chance for starters, we won our 1st ever game, these Women in short aint losers or numskulls, best of all no slackers).

Refs dont seem to negatively play a part.

They display better sportsmanship, but you still see facials and borderline highshots.
there is less narcissistic bollocks and ego.

Most of all when passes stick there is a flow and as you say the hits are oldschool and up close and personal ( Still think Warrior Laura Marius game winning hit
Is the hit of the comp so far ....pretty much identical to Blair on Nightingale).

I saw at least one crutch grab from last nights game. The girl getting grabbed didn't flinch, in the old days that would have been a punch up. The Warriors have to be favourites now surely.

Ive got Brisbane as favotites but not clear favorites.

Last nights game reminded of the opening rounds footy the men play i.e. more errors / clunkyness.

I could imagine the Women ending up a lot better with a full season.

A must win for the Dragons to make the Final.

Lets go Warriors !
