Or that pre-season game we blasted the Broncos down in Dunedin in those flash neon X-Box looking jerseys. We've had a few pre-season or trial games that create a lot of hope or discussion around the Warriors and end up falling flat.Dunno how much stock I'd put in our pre-season/trial matches... Last one we beat the Storm which got me a little excited for this year but alas we did very poorly.
Trials are often your best players against their up and comers. You take your best off and put on your up and comers, they take their up and comers off and put their first graders on. Games swing about. Or you play your top side while they try out combinations and new game plans.
It's good seeing some football again and some new players but after that its just a warm up. What your doing August - October is all that counts.
