only saw the last 30mins and I gotta say the Warriors played better to the conditions. The score line favours us in keeping the opposition under 20pts and the boys scoring over 20pts, especially in wet weather in an easy thing to do. The try to Locke at the end there was great, shows that the boys are trying at the end and are switched on.
I probably should have given a point to Benry, he finally worked out that he had a player outside him and actually tried a pass to him, pity it was forward and a mile high. But such big progress needs reward
well, i'm not sure how i'm feeling after that game. our forward pack was good again. manu was solid. defence in 2nd half was good. but playing one of the bottom sides and letting in those 3 tries before half time...grrr. still cant see any attacking structure or real game plan. still need to build pressure. good to get win but doesn't fill me full of confidence for weeks ahead. my mom was matulino. huge again for the warriors.
1. big manu please keep playing like that for the rest of the season big manu!
Gave my vote to Johnson. His kicks to Manu's side were good.
3 Johnson - as stated
2 Manu - great hands in the wet, did a lot of work, deserved his hat-trick but was robbed, could see the Panthers targetting him while he was limping but he never let up when called on.
1 Locke - his on-field presence lifts the team. He did a lot of work for his first game back, and the try at the end was a nice payment for his work tonight.
