Not sure exactly who you are referring too but being someone laughing at your Kosi posts I can assure you I have always been a fan of Montoya and Dallin Watene-Zelezniak once they showed what they are like in a warriors jersey. We were all sceptical at the time of the signings, that was a huge majority
"Once they showed" you say.

Well i saw it before that, when they were struggling.

I judge players at this club on efffort not whether things are going well for them.

Because effort is the secret...since 95.

And I dunno why nor care why you don't understand Kosi busts his guts every game but keep laughing we will see who laughs last.

But I pegged those boys on debut as assets coz to me the effort is obvious.

I agree thay effort is a major factor and they had that straight away. When I say once they showed I mean in their opening games for us. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak had me sold on kiwi performances but I think Montoya is better for us than anyone else

They are all building in a positive direction.

Consider when Hurrell and Fusitua were our main options talented, but major lip droppers when we were on the back foot.

No self sacrifice for this club, shithouse off the ball, zero efforts on efforts.

Only interested in the in goal Cameras.

Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Montoya, Kosi are the dead set opposite.

Like that effort play against Melbourne when he completely gave up on the chase and let Coates score?.

I know he’s improved heaps but he’s being overhyped way too much, for doing the basics like catching running 5 metres then scoring

Couple of things about Big Ed.

He's a learner, obvious moving on from the Storm game debacle
His positioning is much much better in that he knows to hug the sideline on attack, have some depth and wait for the pass.
He's starting to get some reads on defence
I believe he's one of those weird people (like my wife) who is naturally lefthanded but plays everything other than writing and eating righthanded, hence the ball in in right arm
I'm with Sup in that with the right support could well become a great in the club.
Where we differ is I think Berry will as well, might just take a bit longer and needs more study as to where he should play. He's not a centre in my opinion.
 
The TAB is paying $6.12 for a Warriors win and I think that is out of whack so I nailed down $30 on that along with a fairly adventurous 5 leg multi that will keep me engaged all weekend.
I am asking myself can the Warriors win against the Cows.
Luciano Leiulua is an issue for me. How to stop him is going to be a real chore.
In my wrighty's power rankings I have the Cows around 7th or 8th
I would think the Warriors before Nathan Brown showed up were good for one upset per year. Are we going to wind back the clock and pull out an upset.
With Ais in the halves I think we have a sniff. Not a big sniff but a sniff.
My whole game plan would involve throwing multiple defenders at Drinkwater.

The team has been cut to 19 men
Chanel Harris-Tavita listed as 18 and Lui as 19 so Chanel Harris-Tavita definitely a possibility

There has been a newspaper article this week listing Aitken as going to centre this week but he is listed again in the second row. Which makes sense given there is 3 games left.
If they play him, surely its in the place of Lussick. Asi and Walsh were pretty good last week.
Myself I wouldn't play him.
