Not up set with the last try - we had to roll the dice and it didn't come off... as for Kata... since this is a family show I won't say what I'm really thinking .... just dumb, DUMB, DUMB!!!

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,

Simple maths today guys

Team - Kata = Win

His stupidity went to a new level tonight, on attack on defence, an to top it all off that last play option.

If SK doesn't drop him after today I'm starting a sack him thread to.

It actually looked like the boys took that loss really hard which was good to see.
Gotta wonder where that passions been all year tho- too late now.

Kata is hands down, the greediest fucken prick to ever play for this team and his selfish shit wouldn't be tolerated in any other NRL team. Even the Knights have centres that can pass.

Fusitua looks like his confidence is shot to pieces.

Lino played well, Satae made 50m in 11 minutes, more of him in 1st grade please Keaney.

That last try really sums us up. So close yet so far away and also all of the luck or bounce of the ball falls for the opposition.

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...

Too many dumb players. Ligi Sao should never see first grade again and Kata to ISP for awhile (he went well in his first two seasons, but needs to get back to it). Luke not being on in the end is so stupid!

Effort was good. Dumb players are not.

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
