Only a couple of things to say.

1. Give yourself an uppercut Cappy. Playing Manu after a lay-off, in those conditions, in Perth, against a guy like DCE...absolutely fucking retarded decision and enough to let me know he does not have a CLUE. Anyone who knows Manu knows that sort of game isn't the game you bring Manu back in for. You have Ken Maumalo, you have your go forward from the back. WHY OH FUCKING WHY do you play Manu, and leave Tui on the bench.

2. Give yourself a second uppercut Cappy for leaving Tui on the bench and playing Manu instead. Not since Dylan Walker in SOO have I seen a more retarded use of a bench spot. Then bring him on in GOLDEN POINT?! Wtf are you smoking. The only thing that springs to mind when I think of McFadden is No Fucking Clue.

3. We are the worst side in the competition in close games. SJ takes the ball to the line on the 4th with the scores all tied up, takes the tackle, and no half or anyone even remotely competent in a drop goal gets into position. Instead, Sam Lisone takes a snap shot. Well done guys, that screams panic because you have no experience in tight games.

Game we should've won, we were all over that Manly side in the second half, yet went to shit when it counted. That last set we had in our own half in the 79th minute was one of the worst displays of rugby league I have ever seen in 25 years of watching. That alone was enough to convince me this side will not make the 8. No brains, no game smarts when it counts. Once we lose next week in Canberra it's essentially game over, a Warriors side chasing the 8 at the back end of the year is a side that ain't going anywhere.

We definitely need more forwards in the backline, we dont need any of those fast, skillful players who can defend well...getting our sets started marginally better by filling the backline with big lumbering oaf's with limited skill is what we need to be doing more of.

The boys are trying hard, but their efforts are being sabotaged by a poor coach who selects even poorer teams..

The senior fowards, mutts, Luke, manners and the hoff were fantastic.
Manly played well and gutsed it out- can't take that away from them.
It was one of them ones that could've gone either way. We had our chances but for numerous reasons just couldn't seal the deal.
It hurts.


tui needed to come on early second half. SIMPLE.
he needed to start on the wing.

Manu Vatuvei is dead to me... i want him gone to superleague asap.
Lisone is too loose for my liking.
Bunty did himself proud.
We really need another decent edge backrower and a hard running prop who is big

the bench rotation is simply baffling. McFadden may well be a very competent coach... but I've seen nothing to prove it. I think im actually growing to hate him.

No fucking softballs. The media need to demand answers about McShit's use of the bench.

There is no damn reason we should have played that match with essentially 16 men. 15 in the first half, wasn't it? One of those fifteen playing only his second game too, so you know he was doing it tougher than most.

Tui comes on for three minutes in extra time? Are you fucking kidding me. The team was utterly drained in the second half because of McShit overworking them and underusing his bench. The bad errors began because simply, the players were exhausted and not thinking properly.

A competent coach would have managed his bench properly and guided us to a 6-8 point victory. Instead we lose be ONE FUCKING POINT. That is inexcusable and I cannot WAIT to hear what McShit says. He needs to own another absolute cock up and for once take responsibility. I had damn well better not hear "The team didn't communicate at the end. I would have expected them to take the one, so I didn't say anything." Yes, they SHOULD think that, but you are the fucking coach. COACH, you absolute shitlord.

I don't think I've ever been as furious with a Warriors coach as I am now. In the past you could see how the team cocked it up or didn't turn up. In this case and when we faced the Sharks, they were absolutely handicapped by some of the worst selection and bench use I've had the displeasure of seeing.
