    Lol.

    We must have some of the dumbest footballers in the NRL.

    Zero match awareness. Kata - white line fever combined with an IQ of 14. Tevaga - no clue.

    What an awful match. Didn't look like winning that ever. And finished it off with panic-play bullshit.

    First week exit of the finals coming up.

    Was game over when Luke went off ... never looked like scoring.

    Jazz Tevaga is not adequate cover for dummy half period.

    I like Mannering as much as the next guy but he needs to make his passes stick for the rest of the season. He threw about 5 that hit the deck

    Just dumb with ball in hand. No flow, look clunky, had our chances, didn't look like scoring. So frustrating.

    Plenty of effort but just a total lack of brains today. Dumb plays from Mannering,, Tevaga, Lino and Kata.

    I don't blame Kata for putting the ball down for that try by instinct. But after he watched the replay he looked shocked they called no try, clearly had no idea that their is a double movement rule.

    If we can get Harris and Pulu back in form it will be good to have less minutes from Mannering and Tevaga.

    We missed Green so much and a fully fit Luke.

    Well done Ken, he was very good tonight.

    last time we met we lost by 40 this time we lost by 6, that to me is a massive improvement and the storm t me are the benchmark, so i'm actually really impressed with the boys even though they lost

    Isn't it a scrum when the ball hits the referee?

    Yeah why did Mannering get the ball so much? He's terrible at passing. Why was Luke off? Wheels completely fell off with Jazz at hooker - which is expected. A lot of terrible off loads also. I dunno, at least the defence was OK besides Lino getting ran through a couple of times.

    All in all shit game by both teams and the officials. We had our chances but just couldn't convert.

    We look ass without Green. Should be throwing 1m at him instead of the other million dollar 'chime in and out' bloke.

    Ken can hold his head high. Good to see Bunty back also.

    The Mighty Vodafone Warriors were deeply unlucky to lose that game.

    It's not like they were beaten by a professional, skilled and intelligent team today, they were just so unlucky.
    They played really smart and with finesse and skill and made great decisions... it was just luck, but hey oh well, never mind.

    Go the Mighty Vodafone Warriors, it is just a matter of faith!

    if someone told me we were going into this with no Green and luke for half the game I woulda thought 6 point loss was good but we hd so many opportunities to win it is just frustrating
