Ligi Sao what a useless braindead clown, zero impact, always good for a couple of errors and mulitple silly penalties,

Kata probaly the most inept center ive ever seen in the NRL all time, absolute embarrasing the Warriors club keep running this tool out there

Cant fault the effort today, Warriors just dont have the ammo, Never been a Mason Lino fan but he won me over tonight, excellent display, took all the right options, kept it pretty direct, solid kicking game and defense, well done lad,
FFS. It's gutting. There's a bunch that are playing out of their skins and it's the dumbass actions of a couple of dumbass players each and every week that are costing them. I seriously doubt any 'process' Kearney is working on can coach the dumbass out of dumbass players… It'll be the same exact thing next year.

How obvious was it that Kata was gonna try barge over. Geez the Cowboys had 10 seconds to line up in front of him and got 4 men into the tackle. There was also the break he made and again he never once looks left or right even though he had open options either side. If this doesn't open your eyes to how incompetent he is at centre than nothing will.

Was happy with the effort in a game most predicted we would get blown away but we lost. We lost a game we had to win. We should have taken this.

Hats off to Mason Lino. His directness was great to watch. Inexperience showed when he got caught with the ball but I'm keen to see him continue in the halfback role and rate him ahead of Ata Hingano at the moment.

Coulda. Shoulda. Woulda.

Fuck league can be a cruel game...
Mason was great, that structure has been sorely missed this year. 3 or 4 repeat sets? Great in D, good passing game. Great from him. Mannering was outstanding, i truly feel for this guy. Will go down as the best player to come out of NZ, but will never win a ring at the warriors. This club has serious, deeply grounded issues. I think it's time for a complete clean out. Start from scratch. Isaac has been isolated a number of times rushing up, leaving his team mates. I had the week working with the warriors performance analyst, talking things over. Their culture, or lack there of is troubling
