I'm out.

Not wasting my weekends on this.

I never thought my support and faith in this club would end up where it is. On the field, in the coaching box, and behind the scenes. It is incredible that at this point, fan service off the field has been at an all time low too. I'm convinced George sees supporters as threats, and therefore pests.

Depressing and pathetic.

We didn't look like we even tried in attack until the 65th minute. Even then, it was the basic minimum of effort you'd expect. Aside from the three debutants running hard and generally looking like they were bothered, there was nothing to like about that game.

However, I do appreciate the Warriors for being so prompt in helping me decide that I won't be going out of my way to watch any games this year. I'll be sure to pop in and watch them if I'm not shampooing my hair though!

I went in with the lowest of low expectations, and somehow I was still extremely dissapointed. Not sure how it's possible, but we actually looked worse than 2019.

Other than JTB and Katoa doing themselves proud, what more can you say.

I'd have made better use of my time licking off the dirt of a freshly dug up Kumara, to prep for dinner than watching this Corona infected bunch.

Not sure anyone else can fix the club, but it's time for you to hand over the poison challice SK. Your head coaching career in the Nrl is long done, back to putting out cones for Bellamy or Bennett for you.

You should try not watching and not caring, it's so relaxing.

It is sad though, i used to love this shit.

With Lisone gone, who will be the forum's favourite whipping boy this year? Can't even blame Jazz for this debacle. I missed the game, didn't realise it started earlier. Glad I missed it.

Literally all of them. I wouldn't advise it, but if you wind up watching, aside from the three debutants, nobody looked particularly bothered about accomplishing anything. Even RTS was trash.

We need a new half. Someone call SJ and tell him all is forgiven.

We were in the red zone enough times to scores points but never really looked like scoring.

CHT was a liability of offence. Two times when he had it in the red zone he did a little chip kick on the 3rd tackle instead of keeping ball in hand. We also had no set plays in the red zone. And blake green was also useless at created tries.
Overall my goat for the game is CHT. When he got sent off for ten minutes we played much better with 12 men and looked ok in attack. As soon as he returned we stank again. He overplays his hand and took shit options.

In terms of the rookies
They all made rookie mistakes and will hopefully learn from it. The only upside to the game was we blooded them in.
