Pretty excited to see how we go this game. The Eels are truly one of the excellent sides in red hot form.
No nerves from me, we really have no right winning on paper, so no need to stress about it. Might as well get on the ride and enjoy it.
Obviously really hoping we compete. After that everything else is a bonus.
I feel people are missing a lot of the good, by being bogged down in the negatives. We have a choice, it is our choice how we look at that metaphorical glass.
I just park the negatives, so as not to lose sight of the things that are good omens for our future.
And no game, like a top four team, affords you the opportunity to see the good, when your team is in a race against a superior opponent.
All that said. specific reasons to like this game include, Walsh and his minutes. Everything about Walsh is refreshing, even his stuff ups. Ben Murdoch-Masila, best forward we have seen since the arrival of Tohu Harris. Knowing that when Addin Fonua-Blake comes back in, Ben Murdoch-Masila goes up another level.
The twin towers of the Warriors.
They are attacking dynamite.
Speaking of Tohu Harris, I was delighted to see him crash over for a try two weeks ago....I think we have forgotten what an attacking weapon Harris is....and I believe, that he will be a real weapon in future.
Why? what will change with Tohu Harris being forgotten as a tackle bot?
Well we have added the most defensive pieces to a Warriors pack that we have ever fielded.
These are naturally defensive players.
Next tier down
These are also defensive players.
Clearly, POS has put a lot of thought into a defensive middle third that has attacking runners as well.
The Warriors pack is beautifully balanced, it is one of the best, but unfortunately, atm the best all round player, the one most important to the Warriors, is out with a knee injury.
Bring all those elements together, get them in motion around Walsh and the Warriors had every right to believe they could go down town then attack with their forward pack.
Except Walsh came along, now the backline can do stuff too.
If it all comes together this week we will win.
If it is piece meal and we lose, try not to forget what is coming, try to not ignore what we are up against at the moment.
And most of all, excuse the rant, but the miles Kosi and Berry are clocking up, are for our future. With Aitken back, the future is now, things will start to really happen when all these new guys....Aitken, Walsh, Berry, Kosi, realise what they are capable of.
Yeah, all very nice Sup42. Butterflies and rainbows if we win.... but if we lose.....
Quite simply, I will strike down with furious anger, all those who fucked up during the game.....
