Think the Tigers player will have anything to answer for from the NRL FOR just answering the first question with "I dunno. I dunno. Yeah, I dunno." and just walking off?

Personally, I don't have a problem with players not doing on-field interviews/cutting them short, but the NRL might think it's a bad look.
 
This morning I watched the Second half on Mysky
We looked credible in the second half and only kodi looked like he was determined to lose at all costs. He has sabotaged us on other occasions this year
Just don’t let him on the field in the last 20 minutes

other comments
Otukulo looked marginally better at defence this week. So he must be working hard at his game at practice. That speaks well of him

Kodi up until trying to throw the game away looked very very good at hooker. He is a much better hooker than half by a mile.

reece Walsh seems to have game hardened a bit and Is starting to wear the niggly head locks and intimidation much better. That will stand him in good stead and may start to reduce the amount of old school beat ups on him by the opposition tough guys
Next point, as makeshift as our spine was it was much better than tigers
I like Luke brooks but he had to carry their spine allowing us to key on him and manhandle and rag doll a few times their young hooker to the point he became a liability. Eg where was their hooker on the now infamous tigers missing dummy half play with three minutes left and the warriors defensive line shot to pieces

brown has lost us plenty of games this season through some poor selection decisions ( eg picking kosi more than once ) but last night was Browns victory. Very good team selected given his meagre options. And the decision to hook Kodi was key. Kodi stays on the field and we lose for sure ( my view only )

lastly if lam going home means Kane Evans finally gets regularly picked then we are better off for leeson returning to New Zealand
Evans desvered his spot. Not Evans problem if he & nb don't see eye to eye. He still the best prop on his day out there. When he talks on the field, the players listen, he's footy smart, & very humble at the same time. Lodge & Blake are mirror players. Nb needs different combos for the left right punch, props rotation. Kodi needs to be use in 20mins slots, give him instructions (eg run from d/half, kick from d/half, don't get caught with the ball etc).
 
Watched really closely trying to workout why we have been struggling (as effort has been pretty solid a year). We suck at the wrestle! We almost always get put on our back yet on defence we always seem to be on the legs and being left behind
Bingo! been saying it all year. The opposition flood our middle block defenders and we seem powerless to dominate the ruck. After that we “lose our legs” as Brown says and everything bad that happens, happens after that. Glad you see it too, thought I was alone in my thinking.

LAM is no loss. Too slow and ponderous.
 
Im sorry, not the right place post this but I've just seen the Sam lisone field goal attempt for the first time in my life, and I all I can say is that they should cancel footy every week and just keep showing that over and over again for entertainment

Good win last night boys, now we just have to keep it up, I just did the predication ladder on nrl website and we can still make the 8.
Please don't do this to me 🤣.
Warriors win against the Sharks next week and I'm all in again. Until then my top 8 expectations are non existent. Not good for my heart.
 
How lucky were we to get a game at all?

Might be the winning last game of the season unfortunately.

In a way the Warriors have done us a favour if the comp collapses, at least it won't suck like it will for the competition contenders....
Just read your post and googled it. Rest of the games this weekend are cancelled? That's huge for the NRL isn't it? Haven't checked the rest of the forum so may be a thread regarding this
 
Thanks bro.

I was hoping this would be the case, that QLD would review the NRLs status.

It makes a lot of sense why they have agreed to let the NRL roll, since they have daily testing and no one going anywhere in the community.

It also makes sense that they froze the NRL yesterday. It would be among the last things on the QLD healths mind when they declared a lock down.
