I noticed this too. It seemed that all the pressure was taken off AK. I think given time he’ll offer more.
Would have been the tactic... and it was only a trial...

Green has broad shoulders and experience... he will run the show with AK being just a cog in the machine until he’s settled

Thinking more about this, I'm not really happy with AK playing. Watching him during the trial, he was a spectator when partnered with Green. Yes he's probably the safer option but I'm really struggling to see what else he offers.
For a start kicking distance. His ground kicks were long compared with what I recall from SJ, although that will be borne out in the proper stats on Saturday. Kicking distance saves the forwards having to run as far to put us in the end zone.

Yes, bloody hope they are looking for 35-40m per kick and not SJ's 10, perhaps 15 with a tail wind... Absolutely crazy to use up the next three tackles getting to where you should have been...

So if Green is targeted, which he will be, we are in trouble.

We could easily lose this game.
CTH couldn't tackle - he was exposed on D I thought.

Almost every brand new half I can remember does stuff all in the beginning.

More established halves paired for the first time with a leading half seem to disappear ( think Foran and Benji).

It will take a whole season for AK to become that guy, even Lino was completely invisible until his last year at the Warriors.

AK needs a whole year to bed in, I think the club should give him that, if it doesnt work out, CHT is a year older and undamaged.

We're paying $1.55 and he's still listed as an option for First Tryscorer?
From the NRL Scientist:
"Beset by injuries the Warriors are field a spine as weak as the Bulldogs."
"They are handicapped with Green and Luke as big outs."
I think he might have Green confused with Blair.

Saw somewhere else about Green I just thought it was a site/new agency not checking the team lists and just assuming he was still out with his hamstring even though he came back early.

That was a complete F up by the warriors, playing johnson as a 7 not a 6 when his skill set was clearly more as a running half who could put centres away as well as spring some magic himself now and then. Yet Lino was a solid 7 for that whole time but we bought Tommy, then Foran and now Green, should have put Lino in the big time long ago and let Johnson go MIA as a 6 is entitled to as long as he spreads the ball and puts people in the gaps.

Im so worried we will do the same with Chanel who has been outstanding so far and I personally think was ready as much as the half we bought to stand up, but perhaps hes a better 7 so maybe they will wean him in once Green looks to retire.
