Pretty much what I've expected so far.

No shame in losing to the team who I think will win the comp this year.

A loss to the Bulldogs next week will pretty much confirm where I thought this team was heading.

The lower rungs of the NRL table.

yep I agree, apart from Wiki and Price we don't have much go power.

COWBOYS TOO STRONG FOR WARRIORS
18th of February 2006
From: www.cowboys.com.au
The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys proved far too strong for the NZ Warriors 26-10 in front of a capacity crowd at Barlow Park Cairns tonight.

Over 15,000 fans watched the trial game played in humid conditions with the heavens opening up after the first ten minutes. The Cowboys showed some of the form that took them to the Grand Final in 2005 running in 5 tries to 2. The first half proved to be a lopsided affair with the Cowboys going to the break with a twenty points to nil lead.

However after the break the Warriors were much stronger in defense and posted the only points in the first twenty minutes of the second half. A late consolation try to the Warriors made the score line closer than the game actually was. The only injuries to come from the game were to Cowboys winger Brenton Bowen who dislocated his shoulder and Rod Jensen who took a heavy knock in one of the tackles.

In the earlier game the NQ Toyota Young Guns ran out winners 58-4 against a Papua New Guinea Development Team.

NQ Toyota Cowboys 26

Bowman 2, Firman 1,Bowen 1, Williams 1, trys. Thurston 3 conversions

NZ Warriors 10

Vatuvei 1, Tuakura 1 trys. Martin 1 conversion.

We've lost quality players and replaced them with average 1st graders and a premier league player.

This teams going to need time to rebuild, and I think people need to accept that.

Try reading it from our side of the fence! ;)

Kiwi winger Manu Vatuvei and new prop George Tuakura produced tries in an improved second half display by the Vodafone Warriors in their NRL trial against the North Queensland Cowboys in Cairns on Saturday night.

As they did against Canberra last Sunday, the Vodafone Warriors conceded a significant half-time lead, this time falling 20-0 behind at the break.

The 2005 beaten NRL grand finalists opened with a double to veteran centre Paul Bowman, both tries unconverted to give the Cowboys an 8-0 lead after the first quarter.

In the next 20 minutes, two more tries followed, the first to halfback Brett Firman after a bust up the middle and the second to Queensland Origin fullback Matt Bowen. Johnathan Thurston converted both for a 20-0 lead.
It was into the third quarter that the Vodafone Warriors finally registered points, huge Kiwi winger Manu Vatuvei crossing for a try Tony Martin was unable to convert. That made it 20-4 at threequarter time.

The Cowboys stretched their advantage to 22 points when centre Ty Williams regathered a charged down kick for his side's fifth try, Thurston again with the conversion.

Late in the match Tuakura picked up his first try for the club. Martin piloted the conversion over to complete a second 40 minutes in which the Vodafone Warriors finished 10-6 ahead.

Match details:
VODAFONE WARRIORS 10 (Manu Vatuvei, George Tuakura tries; Tony Martin conversion).
NORTH QUEENSLAND 26 (Paul Bowman 2, Brett Firman, Matt Bowen, Ty Williams tries; Johnathan Thurston 3 conversions).
Halftime: 20-0.

Agreed, Trev. One week ago, there was a lot of talk about how the result didn't matter, etcetera. Now it seems a lot more doom and gloom...

If this doesnt prove that Tuakura has the goods, then nothing will for Cleary and Co.

Of course it doesn't mean nothing to them, but they have so little to cling onto as it is. I personally don't think we're going to go too badly this season, despite two trial match losses.

My biggest concern is why are we falling behind by 20+ points before we start putting in.

Next week will be the best indication of where the Warriors are at in my opinion. It'll be played more as a genuine NRL match with two 40 minute halves rather than the 20 min quarters we've been having.

Thats a fair comment Jesbass, but as far as some fans are concerned (not the die hards). Seeing a new coach, new CEO, your best EVER player leaving, you not making the 8 in two seasons and you having numerous new sponsers because your old ones have left due to you not making the 8, I think we may have less to cling to than the Souths.

So atleast a hard fought win would be nice, especially with Price and Wiki on the park.
