Album: Rd 18 - Titans vs Warriors Preview!
[TABLE][TR][TD]<br /> NRL - ROUND 18 PREVIEW<br /> <br /> <br /> Titans vs Warriors<br /> Skilled Park<br /> Saturday 7th July, 7:30pm<br /> <br /> Underwhelmed? I know I was. Who else was hungover, sitting around the TV doing shots last Sunday afternoon with their mates? I know I was. I had fleeting moments of cloudy optimism, however at the end of the day I couldn’t help but feel this was very much the same old shit sandwich. Anyway, now that the Origin fap-fest has come to a close it’s time to move on to Skilled Park, I’ll be there…will you?<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> What a way to make that under-strength Cowboys team look good. All they had to do was wait until our few form players left the field, complete a few sets, kick a few balls, and wait for our inevitable mediocrity to set in. Kudos to them and all that, but in reality if we were a team capable of anything decent we would have shut the gate a lot earlier.<br /> <br /> The Titans had the week off though there’s doubt they’ll have all their Origin boys back. Despite a terrible start to the season, this team seems to be getting it together at the right end of the season. They’re a better team than what we encountered at Mt Smart earlier this year, don’t expect this result to be similar.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Nathan Friend was excellent in his return last weekend. We finally looked like we had a clue out of dummy half. It seems our fortunes rely very heavily on the form of a certain few players, and whether or not they’re actually on the field.<br /> <br /> Who else loves Konrad Hurrell? The Kondom is a try scoring machine and is fast becoming a fan favourite. I’ve been impressed with the way he’s improving on the little things in his game every week.<br /> <br /> I’m not entirely sure what’s happening with Michael Luck…but this week on/week off stuff we’re seeing can hardly be beneficial to the overall flow of the team. I love the guy, but perhaps with 9 rounds left, and a body that clearly isn’t coping, it’s time to say enough is enough? Not sure, but this bench role and further time off is surely not the way forward
