We've got some of the most talented offloaders in the comp. They just need to throw caution to the wind and back themselves.

We've got some of the most talented offloaders in the comp. They just need to throw caution to the wind and back themselves.

This is effectively the match for us to make a charge at the top four. If we lose then we will need to focus on just making the top 8.

The Storm have a team loaded with stars all across the field and two giants of the game at 9 and fullback. We will need to be at our best.

Let's hope Cummins watched the tape of his last performance against penrith and give us a few make up calls.
 
Yep, that strategy has never gone wrong for the warriors in the past.
Our team runs on confidence. Maybe more so than any other in the comp.

And if we don't play to our strengths we certainly will struggle against the military discipline the Storm will bring.

In short, we need to disrupt the structures.

On attack that means getting in late offloads and going off road to get the ball into space.

On defense that means rushing their spine out of the game.

Without their structures the bellyscratchers boys are dead in the water. Always have been, always will be.

Our guys need to play with as much self confidence as is humanly possible.

Do all that and we're odds on to win tomorrow.

You forgot "Not now Ben, I'm talking to Cameron?"
And "Come on Cameron, your guys were clearly holding down too long."

"Calm down Cameron"

"Walk away Cameron"

"Form a circle with arms linked....then breathe Cameron. Breathe."

"I disagree Cameron"

"Clearly it looks that way when you're that far in front of the referee."

"I'm disappointed Cameron. I expected more from someone with your privileged standing in the game."
 
This game is massive IMO, top 4 contenders or pretenders basically. Our rubbish for and against will bite us hard if it stays how it is, so these games where we aren't expected the 2 points are huge.

Hoping Afoa is in for Vuna, will need his go forward. Smith and Munster will need to be shut down. Weather is looking dry, which will help our "mobile" players like Tevaga making an impact.

Call me a cynic but I don't like our chances this weekend, although with the way the ladder has played out so far this weekend I wouldn't be surprised if the "product" manufactures a win for us to create more interest and boost crowd numbers in coming rounds.
Most conspiracy theories are based on incompetence. So are the NRL management incompetent? Too bloody right they are.

Lino back on NRL duty for Storm clash

Mason Lino makes a return to the NRL tomorrow teaming up with Shaun Johnson in the halves for the Vodafone Warriors’ 19th-round clash against Melbourne at Mount Smart Stadium tomorrow (4.00pm kick-off).

Lino replaces the seasoned Blake Green, coming for his sixth appearance this season and his first since the 24-14 win over Parramatta on May 18.

Green is out with a rib complaint, missing from the line-up for the first time this season. He’s expected to be back next week.

The other player to drop out of the original 21 named is utility Peta Hiku, who has a hand injury. He is also expected to be available again next week.

I have never seen it but smash them up.

Play with disrespect to their reputations and play them on the day.

I've got a weird confidence about this game.

WARRIORS!!!!!
