Would they really bring Mutts straight into first grade? Would have thought a week in reserves first.Then again based on the minutes that Kearney has been giving to Gubb and Sao I don't think he has a whole lot of faith in them!

I just don't get it....has Albert Vete contracted a rare disease or something?? How does Charlie Gubb keep getting picked when he plays fuck all minutes and comes on as a tackle only prop (of which he misses his fair share of tackles!).

The only logical explanation I can come up with is they are trying to drive down Vete's negotiating price below the $500k ish that the Titans were offering when/if they open up talks with him for next season and beyond.

If Matulino is cleared by the medical staff I'd have him on the bench without question. You could argue that Manu came back in through reserve grade but then he's expected to get through 80 minutes without bench cover. I doubt there would be an expectation on Matulino to play long minutes.

If I'm reading it right they'll give him up until the final hour before calling it but I'd expect him to line up provided he doesn't have any setbacks this week.

Matulino needs to be on the bench. Put him in place of Ligi Sao who has only played 28 minutes total in two games. We won't lose much by carrying a rusty Matulino on the bench and dropping Sao.

Maumalo had a shocker on the weekend but he does match up well with Vunivalu, so I'm keen to see him get one more chance before calling up CNK or a healthy Manu.

They don't need to drive down anything. We have an option on him for next year.

Vete isn't playing first grade because to be blunt he's been playing poorly and since going down to ISP has been outperformed by supposedly lesser players.

Gubb's doing nothing to get excited about, I'm with you all the way on that one, but Vete hasn't done anything to warrant a return to first grade.

This team is about to click with there systems.

We do not need a quality center or wing man
It is good to have a two non productive front rowers in our team.

It is how the SK systems works.

We do not need these ISP players who have been out performing the First grade boys.
FFS , we are going to lose these fringe players who are not getting a carrott put in front of them.

Had enough of this systems sh#t and the same team being named.

If SK keeps picking the same team we are going to have the same results.. Ken Kata Gubb have been exposed week after week and he keeps picking them..
we have beaten two teams below us and one on equal points albeit ahead on points for and against.. wheres the incentive for the ISP boys to perform if they keep getting overlooked by FG players out of there depth...,

Maomalo. How did this big for nothing drop nuts get a jersey this week. U could see how scared he was when leilua was running at him. U could literally see maomalos balls drop. This guy is an embarrassment to the warriors. Not a warrior at all. Wanted to pick a fight a couple weeks back but we know the truth. Pussy.

Who here has Maumalo's number? Let's organise a time for him to run straight at this poster to see if they put their money where their mouth is..... ;);););)

jumped on the warriors website to have a look at the teamlist...

almost shed a tear when I saw matulino as the thumbnail lol

praying we can get that guy back on the field this week, even if its only for 20-30 min,

I think Kearney could really take him to a new level, especially given what he's done with Gavet

also I think we need to show a little more patience with Vete, he's slowly learning to do what's expected of him and adapting to Kearney's style

I have no doubt at some point vete will be one of our best, hopefully we'll see that sooner rather than later

to paraphrase professor X "I feel a great swell of pity for the poor souls that play our team when we get these guys fit and firing"
