    Had real fears for this game after last week, I shouldn't have doubted the process.
    SJ to #14 next week?

    Wow. Bloody good stuff.

    Am I the only one who wants to keep the Lino experiment going?

    I thought the Dragons attack was pretty good, especially in the first half. They were make metres, sapreading the ball, not many mistakes, but that swarming Warriors defence was sensational.

    I was pessimistic about Blair but that guy has some guts, he just keeps coming on defence

    Beating the best team in the comp when they are playing well, thats an a+

    Best performance of the year. Showed a lot of character with Tohu off early and without Kata and SJ. Gelling and Lino were fantastic, as was Papali'i who got thrust in with more gametime than he probably anticipated. Great depth building.

    Luke and Blair were SUPERB!

    Still a few dumb plays but overall great performance and lot of heart shown.

    So I read over my rushed post in the game thread and realise I typed “Limo” instead of Lino.

    But then thought...fuck it...kids a Limousine.

    Well done boys. We’re the real deal.

    Did we win with a 37% possession?

    That was Luke's best game by far in a Warriors' jersey. This performance means so much. Dragons weren't just at the top of the table but were the biggest bogey team since Rogers' Titans. Great comeback from a flat performance against the Broncos!

    Brilliant, awesome, gutsy.....normal transmission has resumed.

    Never been one of my faves but Adam Blair my MOTM. That work he did on and off the ball in the first half was just immense. Mighty boys!

    Behind on penalties, sinbin, possession - smashed us in the running meters.

    Never thought I would say this but the warriors are winning it in defence

    Luke , RTS & Fus had awesome games. Blair for me was intense tonight! He was everywhere! None of the flash shit. His defense and covering holes left by tiring team mates. I know he got a rest. But he gets my vote for MOM

    Good win. Great defence. How many play the balls did the dragons play off the mark? Nightingale did it pretty much every time he got to tackled. Hope the boys can back up only on four days rest.
