No Tommy Turbo to exploit Hiku.
Two gun 2nd rowers out.
Hetherington to take it to Fonua-Blake.
Manly not at peak.
We can pull of an upset tonight if our D holds up like the past couple weeks.(Roosters loss an exception, but was good).

I guess the saying will be, What dont kill you will make you more strong! Warriors can definitely win this game but manly just love smashing us! Especially at brookie!

I can't see us winning but please not a thrashing! We have nothing to play for at the moment but pride. I'm looking for huge involvement from C H Tavita, if you dont take this 8 week to improve then maybe we will go into the market for another half or even let johnson back. Please when we are in the redzone and the set goes astray, build on the back of repeat sets!

Manly in a close one for me. Good luck warriors.

I don't know whether I've gone full loopy after one win, but I really can't see why we're such heavy underdogs tonight.

I'd rate our backs above theirs (with the obvious exception of DCE) and outside of Addin Fonua-Blake and Taupau I'd actually say our forward pack might have the edge too. Hell, even our bench looks good.

If we can stop the offloads from their big boys, we should go OK.
 
A gettable game this one, Turbo, Sironen, Thompson and Walker out.

If Chanel Harris-Tavita can kick well, and we can get some momentum in the forwards we'll be right in this. We have a much more mobile forward pack, so we'll either get steam rolled or cause headaches.

Will always be tough going against DCE, especially with our pretty average looking halves.. Hope they prove me wrong.

Tough call this one after all the drama of the last week.

Hopefully with the Brown and Gould announcement there is some certainty for the playing group, a number of whom will now be playing for contracts. May make a difference. We look good on paper but that's the story of our lives. Never underestimate Hasler.

Looking forward to seeing how the halves go without Green, Mad Jack gets a smile on my face. Also looking forward to Gus blowing up totally at the refs and bunker when we get the usual dud calls.

Janfin special. Warriors by 6

they will run at Chanel Harris-Tavita all night long hopeing to exploit his known weaknesses. its up to hi to prove them wrong. my biggest worry is he will run out of puff at the 60 min mark and then become a turnstile

A DCE field goal to win it, that long necked bastard sure can nail them.

Possible the players realise they are now on show for their new coach, but B2B wins have been incredibly rare

All i can say is defence is not his weakness so run at him all night long! There forward pack is as average as ours. Would be good to play in front tonight.

Prediction - Due to fuck all game time and poor tutoring leading up to this moment Chanel Harris-Tavita doesn't play as well as a world class experienced half would and this forum blows up at how useless he is and how he should be as good as Cooper Cronk/Andrew Johns/ Johnathon Thurston but is clearly so shit from all the amazing coaching he has received from the world class coaches we have had during his time. Forum flooded with "Chanel Harris-Tavita is so shit"

Hope the kid doesn't feel the massive pressure and weight on his shoulders and try to win everyone over in one game. Hopefully the rest the season is used to actually teach him and give him confidence and he gets to operate behind a pack that actually pulls their panties up and digs in. Only then can we see if he has what it takes to be a long term half. Rather than all the experts here judging on the minimal time off the bench the kid has had to learn a pretty tough position.

Our kicking game with Green was imperfect.

Now we have almost no strategic kicks from within our own half.

We will struggle, it was silly pushing Green out early.

Chanel Harris-Tavita and Nikorima will have to grow a boot overnight.

Ah well, this is the year not to stress about anything, we should be at the bottom of the league with no wins.

Instead we are being admired for winning a game here and there, and it has been brilliant for fans.

Just one more boys....nothing to lose, plenty to gain...for honour and glory...go get em.

Its not that i think hes weak there, but more that he blows his valve early and then runs on about a 1/3 of a tank for thinking, becomes easy to beat in the tackle and robot like or simplistic in his option taking.

It will be really important that he doesnt try and win this one on his own.

He wasnt pushed, he jumped.
Pretty sure that was the tipping point for Payten, but thats opinion only, no personal knowledge.
if the kid pulls out one 20/40 then thats more strategic thinking than i have seen all year.

Im looking forward to seeing what he will do <actually dreading this but hey>
Great that you are onboard.

Spot on if he can think under fatigue then he's on his way.

It'll be amusing to see Gus giving the biased refereeing, blind linesmen and bunker hell tomorrow morning. Wonder how long it'll be before he's calling for a second NZ team too.

Fantastic Soap Opera it has been for the past few weeks. Premium entertainment deluxe. :)

Come on boys... find a big one this evening, keep our top 8 dream alive.
