Pick Your Team 2020 Rnd 10 - Warriors vs Sharks

Sharks1.jpg

After the Round 9 game against the Gold Coast Titans at Cbus Super Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 10 game against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Central Coast Stadium

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?

Discuss...

It is a bugger when loads of your players play well and you lose.

Doesnt leave you anything to chose from apart from your bias.

Jazz came in...I have to admit I dont rate him...thought our forwards lost a bit of ground tonight...prolly my bias.

Probably wouldn't change too much personnel wise. Focus this week should be on game plan and concentration -- and coaching too, more effective use of the interchange please. So if available, I'd probably bring Katoa in for Jazz. Bringing him and Hetherington on against a tired defence should provide some impact. If Nikorima is available I'm a bit stumped. I think he'd bring spark off the bench, but I wouldn't drop Chanel Harris-Tavita (he'll give us more in defence up against a dangerous Cronulla right side) and I don't trust him and Chanel Harris-Tavita to control the game when needed. Green isn't much better, but at least he's got previous.

A really, really strong and respected coach would probably give Roger Tuivasa-Sheck a reality check or at the very least redefine what he does. I can understand that might be the straw that breaks the camels back though. Trouble also is that Kodi (defence) and Green (decrepit) are in the same boat leaving no personnel.

I really reckon we could adequately replace Roger Tuivasa-Sheck with a cheaper fullback who would do a good job and invest heavily in the halves (with the endless list of pure awesomeness waiting for the Warriors to buy them). I'm starting to think it is a capacity issue with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck rather than anything related to game plan.

I really, really want to see some bold positional changes and an attack first mantra with what is left of the season. If for nothing else than for fan service and to even dispel some myths.

Fingers crossed their game plan will be to keep it in the forwards, wouldnt even bother to give it to a back to kick on the last

Having caught why people are heading home? Are they going to get fired/pay cut?

Fuck me we need someone who can kick. Chanel Harris-Tavita has promise, love his defence, but just doesn't quite offer the attack Nikorima does. We need Katoas size and go forward. Really missing him, he's our best go forward player along with Harris and Maumalo.

How can we make a line break? Everytime someone sticks their nose through the line, we just panic and either throw the ball away or there is no one backing up. Looking at other sides, it just seems naturally they can bust the line. We don't have that.

Would like to see us with the biggest possible pack on the ground, with the intention of them taking more of the hit ups rather than Roger tiring himself out to much. He was dangerous in the first 9-10 minutes of the game. He needs to have more of a break to make him more effective at other times. I have Perham in for Herbert he offers more I think, hope Kerrigan comes right soon as I would rather him over both of them.

get rid of Jazz, waste of space.
Chanel Harris-Tavita better look good on a wing as thats where he is heading to with Nikorima returning and our wings pissing off.
Is King ready for another shot? or is he still injured. I liked his impact.
Fusitua gets a stay of execution only because hes gone as of next week anyway, so i would bring Chanel Harris-Tavita off the bench and swap him for Fusitua at the 20 mark.
Green drives me insane, but unless you replace him with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and move Chanel Harris-Tavita to fullback what do you do? he stays.
Murchie has to much of Sam Lisone in him, needs a head slap and told to settle down a bit.
Egan defn a work in progress, really conflicted on him.

Fuck it all some leadership from the brains trust and that game was won. How do you guarantee they use that grey matter they have this week. Cant even offer strippers nowadays if they win.
So conflicted, want to bin the lot of them, but really they didnt play that bad, some leadership in the 20 and a different result for all to see. Where will that leadership come from. Payton didnt provide it last week, so maybe hes the one who needs the chop. Fuck

King has never been injured he was dropped for loan players etc. Read a report he has joined the group heading home.

I like him but not sure there is any point in bringing him back for one game before he goes home.
is he one of the three names that were mentioned? or is there more than the three
