If Luke is out next week have to move Lino to hooker or bring in Lawton. Jazz is now not a starting 1st grade hooker and neither is Cooke.

Its a wake up call
The only disappointing thing is we are better than this
So we are still out to a great start to the season.

The boys will get back to winning now its out of the

It will be a different team in ten days time.

Whoa. Clocked off already?

I get that. I do.

But I guess as a fan and supporter who like everyone has suffered many of these nights on end, I realise after the improvements that I've gotta give them 100% support even when they don't give 100% effort or results.

Warriors!!!

Nah bro. I felt the bad juju in the gameday thread from about 7am from the correctly unconfident fans who predicted pretty much this exact being shat on. It's painful but not completely doom and gloom.

But it is surely doomy and gloomy.

A good lesson in what Tohu Harris said early in the season after 2 wins "I wouldn't call it success until we're doing it consistently."

Lessons in consistency from Melbourne who tonight are EMPHATIC victors.

Oh well. Have to watch the Dragons reolay again lol.

Flat as a pancake.

Understandable after the highs of last week and the short turn around. Also having Shaun Johnson, Harris, Gavet, Pulu, Kata out of the starting line up didn't help.

Warriors 6.2:bag:

Short turn around
Late night game
Red hot opposition at home
Massive previous game against top of the table
Key players already / injured during the game

This could have gone worse. Not by much. But worse, none the less.

I expected them to be flat.

To get up after Friday was always going to be a mission.

My only concern is Luke. The rest meh, although I am a little annoyed about the F/A hit.

Having guys come in and play one off games is one thing, but backing up week to week, especially a short week, is a different thing altogether.

The Storm didn't do anything fancy. They just went wide and waited for the one on one misses to happen. They attacked Lino, Gelling, Papalli'i, Hiku and found space.

Shaun Johnson, Harris, Gavet, Kata all back next week. Just really hope Luke's injury isn't serious.

Well that's the Bad game out of the way.

Warriors needed more time to recover after the intensity of the Dragons game.

Now they can rest for 10 days

F- For Fucking Joke guys >> Had potential for a classic game and ended up a joke match

Passing- terrible
One on One tackle -pathetic !!!
kicking -Poor

Badly need Luke back and some forwards with Mana

looked like a Storm training run for the bulk of the game with a club side in opposition

Utter DISGUSTING DISPLAY

That hurt a LOT. I think the turn around + mental drain from friday killed us. I turned the game off at 35min so I didn't see it, but to only lose the 2nd half 12-10 is pleasing and more in line with what I expect of this team.

I hope this is an abberation and not a sign of us crumbling under the greatness of our first seven weeks. I expect to see us rally and come out firing against the Tigers. It felt like Hiku was finally exposed badly, so I think Beale will be eyeing up his spot.

I'm probably going to be off the forum this week. No sense in dwelling on the negative.
