Off The Bench

Warriors 1st Grader

Big fan of Sam Rapira's and hope he goes out with a bang. Glad to see him get one last run...

I'm hoping that last run goes all the way to the Grand Final , I had a sneaking suspicion we'd
see Sam back in first grade if we were close to the finals, It's the business end now, Any way
the way I see it it's upto Sam there is someone working hard to take his spot if he let's up
But I hope he kills it from now to the Grand Final ,

No mention of David Fusitua so he must have been hooked or had the sand removed from his vagina...

INJURY LIST | Vatuvei still out
Mon 20th July, 11:00PM

Vodafone Warriors wing Manu Vatuvei is set to remain on the club’s injured list for another two weeks.

It was originally hoped he would be available again for this Saturday’s clash against Manly at Mount Smart Stadium but he is now being targeted for a return for the round 22 encounter with the St George Illawarra Dragons in Wellington on Saturday, August 8.

Second rower Ryan Hoffman remains on track for Saturday week’s encounter with Cronulla at Mount Smart Stadium.

Just heard on the radio, Hoffman out this week, as is Manu. Fusitua has a knee injury, and is also out. Hurrel picked up a grade 1 suspension, so is out this week also.. Apparently Maumalo will come in, guessing Lolo to the centre.

Jesus!! Fish is another option on the wing I guess, but centre is more the position of concern.

Or yes, disgusting performance against Roosters, huge amount of handling errors, didnt get to the play of the ball after thompson break even though he was right there, defence was shocking, took an intercept and only jogged, need I go on

Lol way to wait a week to try make yourself look less wrong.

Take it on the chin bro, you got it 100% wrong

If he plays centre we lose, cronk and smith will isolate him and storm will run straight through him

He is not up to first grade standard yet, watch the Roosters game and tell me I'm wrong, across his whole first grade career he has had a few good moments mainly finishing tries but across his whole game he's got a lot of work to do, great athlete no doubt but mentally way off the mark and doesn't show enough commitment when tackling

Set of six: An unusual buzz at training

Leuluai's back but in trouble
It was great to see Thomas Leuluai's face at Mt Smart again as he works on his recovery from the ACL injury he suffered in May. He was back in the gym with his teammates and shooting hoops in a basketball net but one member of the Warriors' backroom staff was quick to remind Leuluai of his heavily strapped knee as he was lining up shots.

NRL: Fusitua adds to Warriors injury woes
Tuesday, 21 July 2015
By Joseph Pearson

David Fusitua will not play in Saturday's home fixture with Manly after picking up a knee injury in the Warriors 24-0 defeat to the Roosters on Sunday.

He joins the growing list of players on the treatment table as coach Andrew McFadden confirmed that Manu Vatuvei and Ryan Hoffman still remain out of contention.

Chad Townsend missed training with a groin injury that he's been nursing in recent weeks but he's expected to be fit for Saturday.

Charlie Gubb is still doubtful and centre Konrad Hurrell will miss this weekend, after he was charged with a grade one striking offence in the New South Wales Cup.

It was Hurrell's first game since sustaining a shoulder injury in training a few weeks ago but he should be available to feature again for the Warriors in the NRL after he serves a one match suspension.

This means McFadden will have to call for more back up in yet another reshuffle to the Warriors back-line. The now injured Fusitua had been covering for Hurrell at right centre and both are unavailable.

"I'm still undecided about who will take that spot at the moment," said McFadden.

"There's been some guys in good form for our New South Wales Cup team so it's a matter of which one gets picked.

"At the moment it's either Glen Fisiiahi or probably Ken Maumalo but we'll have to wait and see."

Maumalo scored four tries in the NSW cup last weekend and Fisiiahi scored one from fullback as the Warriors beat the Illawara Cutters 24-22 in Wollongong.

The absence of Hoffman and Gubb's lingering injury leaves the Warriors a little short of fully fit bodies in their pack.

Sam Rapira returned to first grade action against the Roosters and McFadden revealed that Sam Lisone has played his way into contention after his "terrific" form in the NSW Cup - with the Warriors now leading the race for the minor premiership.

Oh well,at least he can have a good rest during the off season and come back fresh for 2016 which the hopes seem to be very high for.
