if its a dry hard and fast track warriors by 20

throw the ball around, use some of the big units we have out wide and our hot stepping captain !

Good call. Front foot ball fast and straight runners with all players in motion off the ball.

First things first though. Earn it.
 
Is Kata opposite Holland? If so, I think this is one game where I wouldn't mind if Kata just runs at Holland all game. Worst defensive centre in the game IMO.
I don't think they mark up, not going off the Jerseys anyway - they are both wearing 4.

Beale will take on Holland. Shaun Johnson will be an option then of course.

Be nice to see Beale and Blair combine again with Blair cutting through on the inside.

Be even nicer to see Beale give early ball to Fusitua....but I get why he doesn't, he is a safety first Center....but eventually he will come to understand that Fusitua plays outside the sideline.

He has a lot of missed tackles but how many actually lead to tries? He often slows them enough to let the cover get them.

There's a stat not often covered.

I was bummed seeing Hiku work out his linking connection with Fusitua only to get the demotion of shame.

I like the shape of Shaun Johnson Bully Tohu Harris Hiku Fusitua on the right with Captain Marvellous and Te Blake as extra numbers options.

It oozes strike options to me.

Yet we suddenly stopped going there and tried to develop our Green to Kata to Kata to Kata to Kata on the left.

Problem if you play Hiku is that you will break Tohu Harris.

Tohu Harris is too good an attacking forward to use and abuse as Hiku's minder.

Save Tohus batteries. Watching a worn out Mannering you wonder....watching a latter season Mannering with everyone taking care of their own tackles...running with a spring in his step....

Think we need to be a little patient to see what Tohu Harris and Beale actually look like in the attack.

To me the Warriors lurch from being boring as the Sharks one week.. then as thrilling as the Panthers the next.

They have enough strike already to skim on the icing sugar.

I'd rather we were consistent than tearing sides up and letting in Trys.

Last week was must win and so is this. I give us very little hope of beating the raiders on the last day of the season, and a Penrith minus Maloney will be hard.

I went to the Dog's forum and they give themselves a punchers chance. They are scared of our backs but think they can match it up front.

Their pack is good but their backline hasn't been able to capitalise on it much this season.

We can beat anyone but we can also get Gold Coasted too remember?

You obviously missed the Penrith game, all of his missed tackles led to try’s , watch the highlights and you will see the worst defence of a warriors individual this year. Rushing up in defence and not making the tackle, lazy tackling , taking the wrong person, arm grabs all part of his so called defence. Not First grade level.

I saw it.

But can't explain why I'd still sack G.Reedy and put Beale inside Ken and reinstate Hikz.

Penrith be damned.

Jazz is smaller than Hiku

Might as well throw Hiku in the forwards for a few hit ups and see how he goes

Makes him even more valuable and we can get rid of Jazz and bring in another big body
Yeah, but if you have been watching the games a big body doesn't translate into a good forward. If size was all that mattered......
Jazz is effective. Size is irrelevant.

Dogs fans are confident because Lachlan Lewis is playing. Haven't watched this kid play, is he worth worrying about?

Don't know if worried is the word but I do like watching him play.
He's entertaining- seems to have a lot of time on his hands.
I've never seen anyone with the same kicking style.

No I saw it:eek:...now tell me he was the only Warrior to miss a tackle in that game.;) Actually Sup42 might have explained it and that was Tohu Harris covering for Hiku's missed tackles.

Dogs forwards have significantly more post contact metres than any other pack in the comp.

We’ll need the back five to start the sets well and the pigs in the middle to lift and we should be fine.

Lewis has an excellent kicking game and times his passes well. Not much of a running threat yet however.

Warriors win by 14.
