Team list cut to 19 with perham and King staying. I watchedboth trials and don't recall this king guy...is he any good?
He's a Fijian international. With the chance he's being given through all our injuries its up to him to put his best foot forward.
Quite a small mobile prop though.

I am fizzing at the bung for the game today!

I know we are not the most glamourous of teams etc. but I care not a jot.

They are my team and I cant wait to watch them!

Paasi is a big loss, I worry we will get steamrolled up front. Hopefully we can get parity as our backline has potential. I am not convinced by Herbert but I hope he proves me wrong.

He’s not in our top 30 so can’t play unless we get special dispensation

IF ...

... we continue the recent odd pattern of doing better away than at home

... we follow-up on the talk that was going around pre-season that the team might go back to old style Warriors free-flowing attack (esp given we have talent in our backs)

... newbies Taunoa-Brown and Katoa supply the up-front grunt we've been badly missing (lot of good comments about them in Fantasy circles)

... Tohu Harris is back in form

then we could win this one. Not that a single NRL tipping expert gives us a chance, they've gone 14 - 0 for the Knights

You'd have to imagine he was likely elevated once Afoa and Frei cooked their books? Would seem weird you could name someone in your 21 if they weren't able to play? Just spit balling, no actual knowledge on how it all works.

Apparently the weather is pretty ho hum in Newy. That probably doesn't suit us well, if it turns into a grinder game but who knows as free flowing may not suit us either haha

Good luck to the boys, and special good luck to Katoa and Jamayne Tounua-Brown on your NRL debuts.

Just rip in and make a good fist of it boys, thats all I ever want to see is 100% effort to the cause.

Cant wait.
We will exceed expectations.
Make the experts talk about how bad the Knights were today Warriors.
So we can laugh and talk about how great we played.
Leshgooooooooooo.

See you at 2pm NSW team.
Leshgoooooooooooo

It’s funny but I’m keen to see the game but not hyped about it. We haven’t signed anyone of any value, we have the same coaches & same player selection. What’s going to be different? Win or lose GO THE WARRIORS!!!!!
