I don't like any of the jerseys from the past few years except the blue heritage strip from 2014 with all the 191 players names who have played for the warriors and the Wellington looking design

Just clicked you meant the pic on the lead post. On page 1 lol.

Yeah they went up for sale. How did you miss that?

Originally werent going to be sold but after a shit load of public pressure CCC made a few thousand available...
 
1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2. Lolohea
3. Ayshford
4. Allwood
5. Kata
(sorry to move Solomone when he is developing as a center, however Allwood passes the ball and is also a solid defender, certainly faster than Johnathon Wright and frankly Kata is making us look one player short on the left edge, I don't care if he is scoring from there, this team needs to play normal rugby league....not foster the latest version of kick to Manu like shit. He can barge over the line from dummy half as a wing all he wants. If Wing is good enough for someone of Tui's talent, Kata can bide his time there too. Short sharp warning about centers feeding Wingers mate)
6. Johnson
Sticking with Shaun. till his mind comes right. I used to bag this guy about his tackling when he first made grade footy. He is not the pussy I thought he was. He is scared right now, no question. But he was scared of tackling once upon a time too. He has courage. He needs tome to find it again and run.
As Jordan G said, Johnson needs people running off him....running good angles....the Warriors are so poor at protecting their asset.
Johnson is to the Warriors what the secret service is to the president.

7. Robson (thought he played better this week, behind a beaten forward pack, certainly if you are going to leave Johnson unpunished, Robson doesn't deserve the chop on that one showing). the main reason I have Robson there is for Johnson's sake. Johnson deserves a season with one halves partner. TL couldn't figure Johnson out, so he gave up in the end and took control himself (the over calls and ignoring Johnson) this would be a terrible time in Johnson's development to reintroduce that dynamic, as would putting Lolohea next to him....a baby sitting aasignment. Going all in on Robson....getting better.

8. Ben Matulino eight days a week. The Warriors best player.

9. Isaac Luke
I got your back this week Bully.....no more driving around in a fiat Bambina, from my couch coaching chair I an giving you the keys to the Humvee.

10. Gavet
Lets start this party with some violence against the Dogs....lets do the hand bags at the start of the game and not when the team has lost on the score board. Lets fire these Warriors up. Push the go button, win the kick off....choose to kick to them.

11. Bodene Thompson

12. Simon Mannering

13. Thomas Loolooeyes.

14. Manu Vatuvei (I did promise Bully the keys to the Humvee....torque to the max on this bench) no comment as to why, do your research people...there is a special Manu section of it's own in this library.

15. Shaun Lane

16. Sao

17. Gubb.

I have stuck by old red mist. Well the thing is....Charlie is crazy.

Our pattern is to kick a mongrel when they are down and kiss their asses when they are up.

If you want loco in your team, harden the fk up and take the occasional hiccup with the good stuff....especially when there has been more good than bad.

Show a mongrel a little love, and they will die for you.

18. Ryan Hoffman.....

Sorry bro someone has to die for the sins of the Warriors for a week.
No more powerful message than doing this just one time to Ryan Hoffman.

No ones safe in my team mofo's.

If you like the 2014 heritage jersey, check out the 2005 heritage & 2010 anniversary jerseys. Much better. Hard to come by though.
 
One thing I heard about Robson is every week he goes back to Aussie on Tuesday and doesn't return until Thursday, it's written in his contract

Need Shaun Johnson back at first receiver to force him to get involved more, wouldn't be against Tui back to the wing and Leuluai at 6 if his lungs are up to it with Jazz coming onto the bench.I know Ayshford and Wright on one edge will be lacking in firepower And speed but can't think of a better solution
Lisone, Vete and Gubb back to NSW cup just to see if the other boys can offer abit more impact
Hurrell for mine needs to oust Ayshford to get back in the team and I reckon Blake has been coming along quite nicely reminds me abit of what John Carlaw brought to the team

Was thinking of giving Tui the chance to drive the team behind Leuleuai and alongside Shaun Johnson with upgrading Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to linking into the backline as Brett Stewart does. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck does this already but I'd call him into play making more often to offset Shaun Johnson's reluctance to run through the defensive lines.

I would get Hurrell to start sets as kickers would either get it to Manu, Hurrell or Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

I would also look to recruit/develop an out and out monster prop.

Also coach some mental resilience and drum home game management such as completed sets without points will turn into points at the back end.

Don't let Shaun Johnson get tackled with the ball on the 5th tackle.

Call your last tackle option so your runners and chasers know what's going on.

Idealism at it's finest.
Only one I would change is Leuluai to bench, I would even go so far as to hook Johnson just to make him think if he doesn't play with some passion he is not immune to getting away with it and surely the rest of the group will take note

Against Manly:
Lisone wasn't busy enough and Gubb's strength is his defence and they scored 3 times through him.
John Palavi could add some flare, I hear he's been doing very well in NSW CUP.
Allwood is also super good. Saw him play a few times, dude would be our hardest hitting back by far.
Sao and Gavet would offer some good go forward and muscle off the bench.
I don;t see Gubb, Vette and Lisone punching holes through the Doggies defence. Lisone runs harder than the other two but he's just too undersized.
Leuluai on for Lolohea or Luke if need be.
 
So the most consistant quality player we have gets shifted from the left to accommodate the lessor Hoffman, then relinquishes the Captaincy and now you want him to play prop, perhaps if you want to keep lowering the standards at the warriors Mannering can retire just for the people with no idea.
Position changes are not unusual as players age and Mannering probably will retire or cash in overseas in the next couple of years, hes 30 this year.
 
We need to get back to our four prop rotation with each playing hard for 40 mins... That's the only way our 80 min back rowers are effective, when the go forward comes from the middle and they can save their energy for defense and attacking the goal line.

We don't have big power forwards in our back row, so we need the engine working in the middle.

Gavet, Matulino, Lillyman and someone who can play 40 mins hard... Manu springs to mind for some reason.

The only other prop to play 40 odd mins this season is Gubb. Vete hasn't gone past 33. Lisone is lucky to get more than 25.

Even if one prop isn't making a huge impact, at least he's giving the guy he's replacing a rest so he can come back strong for the last 20.

That's 4 interchanges for the props. Leaving 2 for a hooker rotation, and 2 for an edge forward rotation depending on who's looking gassed / getting hammered. Maybe interchange the lock every game?

Why run three mid/small size forwards for 80 mins? It doesn't make sense unless the heaving lifting is being done by our interchange players.
 
If we have Hurrell on the bench against the dogs, I'm going to rage. That's just surrendering vital size to the monsters.

Apparently Tevaga went to Lock after the replacement hooker came on for the NSWarriors. FMD this is obviously a plan within the entire club. It doesn't work, we get monstered and lose momentum when this happens. To bring Hurrell on in the forwards just makes the problem worse.

Cappy's trying to be too clever, but he never has been able to use his bench properly with a standard line up, let alone a retarded one.

Keep it simple I say, I'd go;

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
Lolohea
Ashyford
Kata
Manu/Allwood/Hurrell (Depending on injuries of Manu and Allwood)
Johnson
Robson (until Tommy can play 80 mins)
Lisone
Luke
Matulino
Thompson/Sao (depending on injury)
Hoffman
Mannering (does his best work here)

Tevaga
Lillyman
Gavet
Sao/Lane (depending on if Thompson is back)

We need Tommy to replace Robson. Send him to NSW cup at 7 for a couple weeks get his fitness and touch back. None of this ease in bullshit in first grade. Not in this struggling team, can't afford it.
