Vete unlucky to miss out but great to see competition for spots with Mannering and Pappali and Beale to return

Loving our forward depth this year
In a way i'm glad Simon has not been named for this game.
Take a chance on Vete in for Jazz wouldn't be a bad idea either
Although Jazz's fitness on D could prove the difference.
Wouldn't look to deeply in their game vs Newcastle as I think The Warriors are also capable of putting Newcastle away.
Be an awesome game , even awesome if we kick their ass
Warriors 1 - 12
Warriors 0 & 4 W W W W

Lol i thought Ayshford had been named haha.

Very interested to see Satae as I've not seen him in action.

Hope he pulls a Paleaasina and steamrolls through their pack with utter disregard.

Isaac Luke needs to be our best player this week.

Satae over Vete is the only possible point of contention for me

I said last week that I rate Vete, I also saw him in person during pre season & he looked quite trim & ripped compared to previous seasons

I would be somewhat interested to know what's going on there, but other than that I'm trusting in the process

Lets Go 4-0 Warriors !!!

About expected and thought Satae was strong through the trials so good to see he has earnt his chance. Am worried about Manners, really thought we would see him this week so am disappointed as I thought his inclusion might have give the team a boost for this big clash. Fingers crossed he is back soon (Kearney was very cagey and gave nothing away re: his return date on radio sport though).

Really is hard to see them getting up over the Rorters, but the way they are going I wouldnt put it past them either. Think it will be a close one with the class of Cronk to give them the edge. So c'mon boys prove me wrong. I will say though, if they win this the rest of the competition will really take notice and we will have that intimidation factor back.

This is the game that they need to show that they can play direct with controlled off loading and disciplined defence. Win this and it gives a huge confidence boost.

No doubt those that have followed Satae through ISP will be happy to see him in there, he may be a bit green but has genuine size and power. Just hope he makes his tackles.

We have a winning record against the Roosters. We often play our best football against them.

Paasi will be better at prop I think. Less D more offence.
Blair in the middle to sure everything up.
Bunty and Satae to play prop. Maybe Blair will shift to second row again and ligi will come on.
Jazz I'm not sure how he fits , but trust Kearney I guess.

Wonder why Ligi Sao to the bench. I thought he's been pretty good in the first 2 games when he's started.

I'd love to see a back row of Blair, Mannering, Harris.

Could be the best defensive unit in the comp, and terrifying on the edges on attack as well....

Why the tigers spent all that money and moved Blair to prop is beyond me.

Few things from the Kearney interview this afternoon, he acknowledged that Mannering’s not too far away, though nothing definitive on his likely return, he also mentioned that he’ll be playing on the left edge for the rest of the season when he does return not in the middle.

He acknowledged his preferred position for Adam Blair is lock not that it matters too much these days, really he’s just changing shirts.

Think the penalties conceded may be more telling in this game. If we keep gifting them back to back sets through penalties like we did against the Raiders the chook's will rip us a new one. Discipline crucial this week.
