We suck anyway this is just an excuse .
Hopefully our winning side turns up for this game .
Otherwise we can blame the weather , Travelling time ,Bed time
Or this article ..
It doesn't matter if the boys feel pressured they will fold
Just went for a look on the Pick your team thread.It really shows where the fans are at in that never have I seen that level of non interest in that thread.Cant blame them really.
Also watched Nathan Brown on 360 last night.His comments were considered,intelligent and he spoke clearly and with pride and passion.You would want to play for that guy.
Our man doesn't cut it on any fair comparison unfortunately and that is a shame.
Also watched Yvonne Sampsons interview with old Tommy Raudonikis.If you haven't seen it make sure you do.
Sure he is an old dinosaur from a different era but what he had and our guys don't is that passion to win.
He admitted he wasn't the greatest player but when he talked about winning and that he hated losing " I really do" you could tell it made a difference to him and that was what made him really a great and tough competitor.
Paul Kent said that what made him as good as he was was that of any player he has known old Tommy was the one who wanted to win the most and would do what he could to achieve it.It was his desire to win that made him so competitive and ultimately so successful despite actually having a reasonably limited skill set.
What Tommy has is what we have got none of unfortunately.
I found it a really inspiring interview in thinking about having the right desire and attitude.
I have a feeling the coaches could show that interview to our team and unfortunately 90% of the team it would go over their heads or they wouldn't listen...........losers mentality.
So onwards we go to this week and the Titans.As it stands we are only 2 points out of the eight.
The Titans,a team lower than us,whom we have had the wood on recently.
We show up for full 80 minutes and our season is still alive with the hopes that we can start playing 80 minutes the rest of the year.What has happened to Corvos plan that his third season in charge of fitness sees us being as fit as possible and being able to go 80 minutes the full season.....don't hear much about that one now.
We lose this one (whilst mathematically not) basically season over and Kearney one loss closer to getting the boot.
When Tommy was coaching Wests once during the warmup he made the players go to their in goal at Campbelltown and kiss the ground. It didn't work, the Warriors thrashed them that day, but yes Tommy hated losing more than anybody I can think of, even Sticky and that is saying something.
I think it is obvious that during this season more than any other Warriors side, ours which is as fit, athletic and talented as most in the competition has the ability to drop the lip (my quote) roll over for a belly tickle (Adrian Proszenko SMH quote). I know all the people around me in the stands can see it. It is obvious because it is sudden, usually after a try or an unlucky call, they go from being in the game to opting out of it.
Australians don't do that. It is one of their endearing qualities, they fight until the end and never give in, yet our bunch of pussies do, even when they are still in the game.
Do we blame the coach? Why?
Do we blame the club? Why?
Do we blame the players? Why?
A bout of stomach flu has hit the Warriors this week, sidelining three frontline stars as they prepare for Friday night's crucial match against the Gold Coast Titans.
Key spine members Blake Green, Issac Luke and Karl Lawton have all been struck down by the bug and now face a race to be declared fit, with the Warriors flying out for the Gold Coast on Wednesday morning.
Kearney said while the trio are no certainties to take the field at Cbus Super Stadium, early indications are that the impacts of the bug won't be long lasting.
Blair joins 300-game club on Friday

Veteran forward Adam Blair will become just the third New Zealander and the 36th player in total to join the NRL’s 300-game club when the Vodafone Warriors face the Gold Coast Titans at Cbus Stadium in Robina on Friday night (6.00pm kick-off local time; 8.00pm NZT).
The 33-year-old Blair’s milestone also coincides with the Vodafone Warriors’ 600th match since entering the competition in 1995.
The 14th-round encounter will be Blair’s 34th appearance for the club in a career which has included 121 games for Melbourne (2006-2011), 71 for Wests Tigers (2012-2014) and 74 for Brisbane (2015-2017).
Raised in remote Panguru in Northland, the Whangarei Boys’ High School product made his first-grade debut against the Wests Tigers in the fourth round of the 2006 season and followed up with the first of his 48 Tests for the Kiwis later that year. Blair becomes the fifth player to reach the 300-game mark while with the Vodafone Warriors. Kiwi legend Ruben Wiki (312) was the first in 2008 followed by Steve Price (313) in 2009, Ryan Hoffman (326) in 2017 and Simon Mannering (301) last year, the only player to appear in 300 games for the Vodafone Warriors and the second Kiwi on the list.
In a coincidence Blair’s 300th will be against the same opposition and at the same venue Hoffman reached the milestone two years ago. On that night he scored the first try of the match and converted the last – his only NRL goal – in a 34-12 victory. Blair, Vodafone Warrior #223, was surrounded by family, team-mates and staff at a lunch in his honour today before being named at loose forward against Gold Coast on Friday night.
The intended top 17 to take on the Titans features two changes from the side beaten by Melbourne with Patrick Herbert and Jazz Tevaga named to return from injury. Herbert has recovered from a leg complaint after missing last Saturday’s Storm contest while Tevaga is back from an ankle injury picked up after he’d been on the field for just eight minutes against Brisbane on May 25. He fills the vacancy created by prop Chris Satae’s one-match suspension for a dangerous contact charge.
The Vodafone Warriors go into the match on 10 points while the Titans are 15th on eight points after winning two of their last three games.
The Vodafone Warriors have a 68 per cent strike rate against the Titans – their best against all current NRL sides – winning 17 of 25 encounters between the two sides including 15 of the last 17 since 2011.
However, the Vodafone Warriors were on the end of a 12-36 defeat the last time the two sides met in Robina last July, the first time the Titans had won there since 2010.
No. What's worse is we are served up the same shit team and tactics every single week. Blair has done nothing to be starting after being dropped to reserves and yet Ligi is sent of to the wilderness again for being a part of some great wins, runs, offloads but because he missed a tackle he's out again. Fucking madness and i don't think anyone cares anymore
well if we don't get belted in this game the next 4 of Panthers Knights Broncos and Sharks should put us all in the who gives a total fk fan club sorry guys I was hoping we maybe playing a junior midget team but even some of them would beat us.
