Well, it wasn't exactly the best win the Warriors have had this year, but they did the job and it would have been an uglier scoreline for the Roosters had Martin kicked all his goals.
Standouts were Rovelli - he seems to be working his way into the first choice halfback position nicely, and can only improve. Fien - again, effective at hooker. Faumuina - although he is guaranteed to throw at least one ball away during a match you can't question the effort he puts in; let's face it, we need at least one creative forward.
Luck - solid and showed he can get the odd offload out when he wants to. Webb - apart from missing that tricky bomb early on he was great. Vatuvei had a very good game - 2 tries, good kick returns from the back (Ah Van did nothing wrong either).
I was hoping Ropati would step up against a less experienced halves combo and show why he deserves to be no.1 standoff, but he was missing for the majority of the game as far as playmaking was concerned. I had faith in his abilities to cement the position earlier this season - but I'm afraid he just dosn't cut it at 6. His defence was good and he hits the ball up well, but a first five he is not - at least by NRL standards.
Gutenbiel had a solid game also, but I still feel he slows the attack down at times. I much prefer to see him just run at the line and offload rather than trying to be a centre.
Anyway, it was a decent win and one the team and fans much needed. Well done
