This is a good side on paper.

Really excited and hoping they turn up.

But to keep myself sane I'm going in expecting a lack of energy combined with poor refereeing, then anything above that will be a bonus.

Two teams that look like contenders this year.
The head says its a 50/50 call.
I mean they have the stars like Brimson, Tino, Fafita, the under rated Kelly, the unpredictable Peachey.
But we have more firepower across the park than them, than almost any team I reckon.
With the new rules creating a bit more space you need live wires.
Our forward pack/rotation is the best I have seen since 2002/2003 and we have Evans and Murchie to come back into the selection mix.
AFB is a monster.
For mine Katoa is every bit as good as Fafita and Tino.
A great decision maker with the complete skill set.
Nikorima, RTS, Hiku to set the first round alight.

I think you guys are reading way too much into what you saw in the trial 2 weeks ago. Don't believe we will look like that come Saturday, bit of possum being played by Browny there.

Guess we will have to wait and see.
Holding them to 12, the highlight of my year 🤣

agree, why would you show your hand two weeks before you fire a shot in anger at the same team....would've been interesting if the trial was against say a round 6/7 opponent.

If you need your enthusiasm lowered go and watch Hiku's interview on the warriors site. Doesn't fill you with confidence haha
“Gased in the 1st 20 minutes of the trial?”

“A bit unfit to run around at fullback?”

Apart from those bombs hiku seemed pretty upbeat..

Don’t mind Katoa on that left edge if Brownie lines him up that way, Sirronen and SOS could barely contain Fafita in the trial match where Katoa and CHT should offer us more in that department.

The other main attacking threat is Brimson. Titans don’t really work to strip you of numbers as much as try to get between defenders and promote second phase play with late offloads so can’t afford to clock off around the ruck with the likes of AJ Brimson/ Corey Thompson sniffing around.

If they do break through our line I’m hoping our cover defense and scramble is on point like at the backend of the trial where it held strong.

I wouldn’t say the Titans are a potent attacking team but they will try to utilise their strengths. For them I think containing our roll forward is their biggest challenge, I’m expecting a territory advantage and the Tits to be coming off their own line a fair bit AND with an even share of possession and key personal back on deck points will come.

Problem for us i think will be holding possession
Getting them down there end and keeping them there will be easy but penalties and errors from us I see hurting lots.
Also I thought we looked a bit rushed and not composed enough in the trial.
Hope cht and the guys are more composed tomorrow.
