The players self admitted they didnt put in enough first half last week. How is that SKs fault. Really if all these guys were truly commited his role would be to calm them down.
Some would argue that motivation is a key role of a coach.

Graham Lowe was a great motivator, one of the best, but his other attributes e.g. game plans were very ordinary. Fred Allen was also a great motivator.

I think SK is probably excellent at preparation and systems, but lacks the motivational skills of Bennett, but then so does everybody else, just ask Brian Smith.

Like the song says "you can't always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes you get what you need." :bookworm:

As long as everybody takes responsibility for their roles and fulfils that with effort skill and commitment the outcome will take care of itself.

I don't give a flying fudgesicle who does what just get everyone in the right role doing the right thing.

Captain Marvellous can't be line drop out taker, playmaker, captain, coin toss decider, media spokesperson, metre eater, defensive monster, team motivator just for others to say "nah aye, I'm not that keen tonight."

Madness

I don't know about rumour but when you come out and publicly question the signing of a new player that looks to me a like a serious attitude problem. It should not surprise anybody, he has had an attitude for years, even at Souths, the management always have seemed to be on top of it though. That isn't denying the guys talent, he can carry a game almost on his own.

These are the quotes Luke said about the Nikorima speculation.

"He's going to bring a lot and is going to challenge a lot of the boys if he does come," Luke told media.

"I think he genuinely is going to be a great buy for the club, but what do you do with Chanel?

"I don't know, [Chanel] trained well today, he wants a spot.

"I think Kodi, if he does come, he will probably have to work hard for it because Chanel is doing a good job."

That's it. There is literally NOTHING in there where he's questioning a new signing. He even says Kodi will bring a lot to the team while also going out of his way to praise Chanel Harris-Tavita.

He's praising both without taking sides.

I disagree. I saw it live. He said way too much, and you have to consider the look on his dial as well. He is just another over paid past it pensioner that the club needs to replace and move on asap.

Bullshit. Do I need to post the video now too?

I agree he's past his best and not worth re-signing, but there was zero in his words or body language that threw shade at Kodi or the club about the signing.

No need to post the video. I have already seen it. :rolleyes:
 
Yeah...posting a video would be for your benefit only because nobody else visits this site....

You're the one painting Luke with the bad attitude brush and throwing shade based on nothing. Maybe others want to judge for themselves.

The problem with this stuff is that people on here assume that the rumors are true and then they start to spread.
Luckily this one is easily proven untrue but in other cases the made up rumor starts to get played out like fact.

Nothing???...except a long history of indifferent form and bad attitude, one of the worst was a very disrespectful radio interview with Mac a while back.

Looks like Blair is out:
Rugby league: Marquee signing to reserves? Struggling Warriors star Adam Blair is down, but not out
After arriving at the Warriors as a marquee signing last season, Adam Blair faces the prospect of being relegated to the reserves. The veteran forward speaks to Michael Burgess about his season struggles and how he is adamant he can return to his best form.
Adam Blair is down, but insists he is not out.
The veteran forward admits his confidence and belief have taken a hit this year, as he has struggled for any consistency.
Blair is the most experienced player at the Warriors with 297 NRL games but may be relegated to reserve grade this week.
He admits that would be a shock, as he hasn't played in the second tier competition since 2007.
But he's also adamant he can find his best form, even if the road back won't be easy.
"It's about going out there and getting it done," Blair told the Herald . "When you don't, you put pressure on yourself, and ask the questions … why didn't I get it done? That puts doubt in your mind; am I doing enough for the team? Have I ticked all the boxes? When you can't tick every single box, you start questioning your ability.
"I've been there before, where I questioned myself all the time. That doesn't stop, even though I have played so many games. I always want to be that person, doing everything I can for the team, be the player that everyone wants to play with. When subconsciously in the back of your mind somewhere, it's telling you that you are not, then you are doubting yourself."
Blair arrived at the Warriors as a marquee signing last season.
He wasn't the rampaging metre-eater that many fans desired, but he offered experience, leadership, aggression and toughness.
He helped to elevate the performance of the pack, averaging more than 60 minutes a game and bringing defensive smarts, a handy offload and energy in the middle of the field.
There were still questions — he was one of several who struggled in the finals loss to Penrith — but his form saw him tour with the Kiwis to England.
This season Blair has struggled, though constant changes in combinations haven't helped.
He's still doing a defensive job, but at times has barely contributed on attack (17 running metres versus the Rabbitohs and one 13 metre carry against the Storm) and has struggled with discipline, conceding more penalties than any other Warrior.
"I haven't been consistent enough," said Blair. "I don't think I have performed well enough, for what I have done in the game … to be honest. It has been an up and down situation."
Like any player, Blair thrives on confidence and admits his levels are down.
"It's a mixture," said Blair. "Not believing in yourself and maybe having doubts at times through games. I'm a hard marker on myself and I haven't done enough to contribute to the team and that takes a little bit of a toll. You go away from games thinking 'what if I did this?', or 'I could have been better in these situations'."
His predicament is difficult, but nothing what he experienced at the Tigers in 2012 and 2013, where, as a new, high profile arrival, he copped the wrath for the team's struggles and was labelled by some Australian media as one of the worst signings in the club's history.
"There is a lot of stuff said outside [and] no point dwelling on what others say," said Blair. "It's not as bad [here] as it is in Sydney. [But] it can be hard for the family. They obviously want to talk to you about it, but you don't want to hear it. But you need to get on with life, work through the tough times. If you keep working hard for something, things end up changing, if you want it bad enough."
It would be foolish to count him out.
Blair overcame a tough childhood (he lost his father at a young age, and had to help look after his seven younger siblings) to become one of the most decorated players in New Zealand league history.
He has played in four grand finals, winning two, and notched 48 tests for the Kiwis, only topped by Ruben Wiki's 55.
He was part of the 2008 World Cup triumph and the Four Nations tournament victories in 2010 and 2014.
The 33-year-old has done it all, but needs to prove himself again, as there is no room for sentiment in the NRL.
"I have to believe in myself, my ability," said Blair. "It obviously would be a shock, if the coach says 'this is the 17' and you are not in it.
"It hasn't really happened before [here]. But also I understand we need consistency, not moving players around after a real good win (over the Dragons) and coming off four losses.
"[I'll] make sure if I do end up down there, it's about going out there and executing."

The criticism might be cruel, but he is earning way more than the Prime Minister, for the same length of contract, WTF does he expect?

I don't know for sure but this sounds like the hard nut of Brian Smith saying to SK enough with these slack bastards, time to kick some ass. Heyzeuss, we might see some action this year after all.

What has that got to do with the Nikorima/Chanel Harris-Tavita interview?

All you're doing is making it look like you're interpretating Luke's interview on your previous judgement of him rather than anything he said or did in relation to Nikorima's signing.

Well done Mooks,if this is a result of that one beer the other day imagine what might happen if he had a go at a whole slab.
More likely Brian Smith sitting in the stands with his note book, and I can guarantee he wasn't doodling.
Luke is still better than Roache on form.
On form Luke is the second best hooker in the comp to Smith, but he isn't on form, end of story.
I see their staring Front Row is Tamou and Tim Grant which doesn't induce the shits in our front row I would wager.
Tamou is 16th in the NRL on post contact metres and 19th on total metres.
James Fisher-Harris is 47th on metres.
None of our forwards are even close to that, if they aren't shitting then they bloody well should be. :eek:
