Smashed the arrogance out of these pretenders but lets not beat around the bush- Penrith are pretenders. They are not in the same league as Souths, Melbourne of the Roosters. The way they are playing Penrith will be bundled out in week 1. It's almost like the 2012 Warriors- so much media attention on how much 'talent' and 'potential' they have has gone to the playing group's head. Most overrated team in the 8 IMO. The real test will come if we come up against the big 3 again.

Harris, Hiku and Fusitua- that's the best attacking edge we've got. Even if Beale is fit, don't fuck that edge combination up. Even if it isn't the most optimal defensive unit, it's our best attacking option against the top 4 sides. It will most certainly be too much to handle for the edge 8 teams that we come up against.

Ken was a bit quiet tonight IMO. Maybe its because of all the penalties we got inside our half that negated his running contributions.

Bit disappointed about our end to the halves. We got a bit lazy towards the end of the 1st and 2nd halves. That won't do during finals but I think its a very fixable problem.

We seem to hit back really well when we lose so here's hoping we lose to Canberra next week.

Geez Harris is our most important player and Blair is a good 2nd. Would be a brave coach to drop Hiku
Harris has come back just when we needed him. One of the best on the field tonight.

Great to have Tohu Harris back. Feel a bit more comfortable with him out there.

A pity about the last few tries. We could of improved our points differential a bit. It would be a Warriors thing to do and improve an average for against in the last two rounds.

Buzzing! The boys needed to win this one and they delivered. Good game by all the boys, a real team effort.

Bring on the Raiders and Manners 300!

Chahooooo!

And the most Bi-Polar team of the year is the WARRIORS

Jezz , one week they put in a shitter & the next week they play like footy Gods.

They will need to find some Continuity in the finals.
And hopefully its the play like "footy Gods" psych.

Harris was massive. Different team with him in it.

Not sure what was up with the rotate the dummy half thing trying to come out of our own half but it didn’t work. Lino’s passing from dummy half sucked ass.

That late 24 point swing in the for and against really hurt.

Main thing was we won and are off to the finals!!
