    You must be a Warriors fan. Soon the Yorkshire people will be talking about the Warriors instead of Doncaster.:D

    Sorry missed the sarcasm - I did consider the possibility that you might have been drunk however! I'm just quite defensive when it comes to the old boys that contributed to a team that actually entertained and were competitive.

    This is what I meant when I said so much of our season is pinned on Green:

    Link has been hidden. Please Register to view.

    I found that extremely fascinating to read. Everything I've seen from Green, from his interviews, to the documentary, to his composure in the trials, since he's been here has impressed me so much. I really believe our success as a footy club revolves around him this season - if we finally have that voice that gives our players calmness in the face of adversity, and confidence when we're up against it, we might finally begin to turn around the ship.

    Thanks for posting that....it was enjoyable....some of it I've heard before (New half seeks to free up Johnson) probably that would make Johnson a stand off in every other team in the world ( my fav position of the halves anyway....a hybrid center / halfback....I think Union call that a five eight).

    He has a very good early read of his compadres....but then he's studied many of them over the years.

    I think we need two more like him in the side....one in the forwards...an aggressive Gallen or Graham type ( otherwise Lawton needs to find his hooker Mongrel and talk)....and one on the left edge ( probably Ayshford pairs with Beale). on the wing and we convert Ken from the bench to D up like a Prop....he already has the hard running explosive speed and power.

    Tohu
    Blair
    Green
    Lawton
    Ayshford
    Johnson

    A reasonable distribution of communication.

    Cheers for linking that, great insight into the club and further evidence our preseason hasn’t been overhyped.

    Anyone see when Isaiah Papali'i got the ball and Blake Green was yelling out to hold it. Papali'i tries to throw an offload and loses possession of the ball which results in a knock on. Blake Green runs to first marker and spends that time turned around giving Papali'i a complete earful. Papali'i didn't put another foot wrong and went on to have a blinder.

    FUCKING LOVED IT!!!

    Fair comment brother but am I naive in thinking that sort of behaviour was unacceptable before. Back in my day yelling at other players with a few F bombs was standard. This a big boys game after all. Just asking like.

    I hope they have Mason Lino copying everything Green is doing in case of injury.

    Yes and agreed. Just as pleasing was the immediate apology from Hiku for holding onto a ball that would’ve given Fus another try.

    He’s got a good spray in him, he mentioned it in one of his post recruitment interviews.
