Gentlemen, I have a concern. to quote some movie i vaguely remember.

While i love the dynamic play, except Shaun Johnson sideways running, my worry is can they find the balance between Dynamic and Straight. Or will a further rush of blood to the head push them into full on Warriors ball and the many errors that come with it. Cause honestly i love winning MORE. IMO this is all about Green, Tohu Harris and Blair stopping them from getting to carried away with things.

You just literally saw them correct it in the game thou. With about 30 minutes to go, kind of put it away and ran a perfect structure play for kata’s try, should have had another one with Afoa going through the middle and bombing to the corner is pretty safe play too (so long as they can’t catch it in goal)

yep i did, i just worry success has been so long in the coming that a little might be to much for them and its old (newer) heads that we need now to keep the younger but more entrenched warriors players in line. players like Shaun Johnson, Kata and Lisone, who can be so good or so bad.
 
Pulu in for Isaiah, guy has impressed with good speed and put on a couple legit bell ringers so far.
I think Cook will come right just needs more games under his belt.

I'd like to see Gelling come in for Isaiah.

Think we need someone a bit more mobile on the left than Paasi to help Kata and Maumalo in defence.

I like Pulu coming off the bench and would leave him there for this game
 
satae and/or passi and/or vete in for papalli if injured and lisone just because

we need to combat the massive green pack with one of our own

whats up with cook coming on for the last 7 minutes and luke is still on

i dont see the point in having 4 on the bench and one sits on it for over 70 minutes

I don't think Cook could cover Papalii's injury. But if Bully goes down then we need a 9 to cover. He may have come on after the game was won. Not sure though
 
Pulu to replace Papalii in second row.
Lawton to replace Cook.
Satae to come onto the bench in place of Pulu.

Paasi needs more time, watched him with interest on Saturday given his insane round 1 stats. He looks too slow off the mark at the moment. He got stood up a couple times in defence.

Raiders have the biggest pack in the NRL, so Satae makes more sense than Paasi and Pulu even makes more sense than Papalii.
