the best performance I've seen from this team in a long, long time. customary lapse early in the 2nd half but on the whole the consistent, organised attack and some of the most commited defence I have seen from a warriors team.

Looked like a grown up, professional team.

Credit too to Para... they threw everything at us but we got the job done.
Really pleasantly surprised.

some of the most commited defence I have seen from a warriors team.
What brought one of the biggest smilies to my face today was right near the end when Blake and Fusitua shut down an attack on one side line and the Eels shifted the ball right across the field and the left side stopped them on that side - you just know how normally we'd crowd one side leaving the other side open but it didn't happen

Very good first half, followed on from last week but against a better team who had a full bench. Did enough in the second and crucially, didn't allow a crap first ten minutes to ruin the rest of it. Big, big credit to the Fusitua/Sheck corner tackle on Radradra, the whole game really could have gone another way if he scores, and he does in that position nine times out of ten.

WOW! what a massive difference to a couple weeks ago. Foran is sent from god for us warriors fans. He has lifted this team and credit to the spine. Worked really well and Johnson is playing awesome. He doesn't get enough credit from us fans but hes been good this year despite what the media want you to think. Everything Foran does is pure class, i hope Ata is learning everything he can, hes got a good opportunity to learn from one of the best

When Parramatta scored on our left side in the second half it was Foran still chasing across for the tackle...alone...sometimes it is almost like our guys are trying to hide from tackling...the NRL website says Foran led us to victory...he was the difference but my MOM was RTS.

Yep I am starting to eat humble pie and am happy to do so, I am still using a small fork, shutting down their edge attack was very pleasing to see, and the forwards running in pairs, I am still put off seeing Cappy there and claiming some sort of kudos, but lets go to Canberra and show them what we are made of.

Eels have a big saturday night out on the town? Been a while since the warriors were the sharper looking team full of energy, repeatedly kicking to the sideline when your trailing isn't a good sign.

A good day for the footsoldiers of the team, Ken, Blake, Bodene, Solomone having their best games of the season.

General Foran with the decisive play.

Wasn't thrilled with RTS not going to ground which led to the 2nd try, but its one mistake.

Bundling Semi into touch probably the other key play, was sure he'd finish that.

Another quiet week on the forum - there's not as much to talk about when the team just goes through the "processes" and gets a win at home.
