Despite the errors in the first half, proud of the fightback.

Lots of promise from the Warriors, the scoreboard flatters the Eels.

A bit of a comedy how much it takes for the ref's to give us a set restart. But hey this is the NRL, what do you expect?

When Addin Fonua-Blake gets back we could cause some trouble.

Walsh has to start.

No time for blooding or rebuild. The time is now.

Warriors - ...and for our next magic trick, we will do a dissapearing act.

Warriors fans - mmmm think we'll pass, we've seen this one before.

First half was miserable. No respect for the ball means no chance. Side looked instantly better attack wise with Walsh on board. Partly because of that we looked like we were in with a chance in the 2nd half. Kid really is a special talent.

Not sure what it was but the team looked very flat that first half. Zero interest or confidence. They looked scared.

Wasn't t the best idea to line Berry up against Sivo but theres nothing unusal about baptisms by fire. If the kids gonna play NRL then he's going to have to step up to the plate sooner or later. No winger will ever stop someone that size backtracking or planting. Especially a kid like Berry. That edge did look better with Euan out there but they are still a long way off stopping the soft tries we get scored on us out wide.

Bit of a catch 22 with the pack. Really needed them to step up but thats near impossible when you spend so much of the game defending your teams silly mistakes. While most people moan about our 5th tackle options in the oppositions 30s this game was our 1st tackle options in OUR 30! Guess Brown was looking to blow the Eels out of the park early. You dont do that 4 times in the first 20 minutes and with someone as reliable as Tohu Harris without it being the game plan.

We lost this game in the first quarter when thye were scoring a touch over a point a minute but at least we made it a little more respectable at the end.

Plenty to work on and I'd start with our possession rate. Especially early in the game...
 
Browns the reason we’re losing at the moment. These team selections are killing us. Every time Walsh is on the field we look really good. He’s waiting till we’re pretty much dead and gone before he puts him on. If Walsh starts that game at 5/8 I think we win. Roger needs to stay at fullback. Channel to make way for Walsh. Channel through away way too many opportunities today. Couldn’t create a try to save his life today. Pompey needs to go to wing with Berry and Aitken in the centre’s. Brown needs to suck it up and drop Maumalo.
 
If we play Kearney ball in the first half the score is close.

But no. we concede over one hundred tackles to the Eels and complete two of our own sets.

Pretty much NRL suicide and it really pisses me off since these blokes know how to play retention ball.

Do that and we win.

However you cannot ignore that we have a serious team when Walsh is added. Therefore our future is clear.

We need to be patient till Walsh is allowed to p[lay eighty. After that the Warriors score more than their opposites/....ergo we win.

Add Addin Fonua-Blake to that mix and anticipate Tohu Harris and Roger are not going to play their worst games...and we arrive as a new threat in this competition.
