YESSS!!!!!!!!!! Heart in the mouth game. Great to see Locke and Johnson starting to sort their stuff out hopefully and well done Ropati.

Great to see hurrell smash Dave Taylor then two minutes later bust through a taylor tackle
What about Koni's solo effort try. He was a beast tonight. 6 tacklebreaks, 2 linebreaks and 12 runs for 191 metres. The most for the night. Definately my MoM. Easy...

he was shit under the high ball, cant argue that - my point is did he receive one pass all night? there was one kick to his wing and he got the only repeat set of the game not from a penalty. Hes a weapon that the warriors seem to have forgotten they have. yes there are better defensive players but that's not why hes on the park
TBH I'm not sure why he is on the park??

The second Titans try we were probably victims of the new video ref interpretations but it evened out with that last call.

Big improvement from guys like Locke and Johnson; and have to admit Ropati went quite well on the wing had quite a good work rate.

Our for and against will still be down with all of the 1,2 point wins but that ship has sailed if we win our remaining games chances are from what we have seen this year there will only be a few points in it.

Hopefully Canberra have their travelling blues next week and no sacked coach boost in motivation.

3. Konrad. Breaking Mark Minichello's face with your arse is a rugby league watching highlight for me. Up with with Olsen Filipiana bunting off "the king" 3 times in a test match, Russell Packer running over the top Billy Slater in that test match, and that time you put Inglis on his arse. You we so good tonight I think you could be the form centre in the comp.
2. Ropati. Class. Brought assurance to those young fellas that made them look $1M. Konrad's defence tonight was brutally effective and I could see the influence Jerome was having on him. Congratulations.
1. Johnson. When he is good he is brilliant. Still learning. If him and Locke can get their combo going like Thurston and Bowen I think they could be the most dangerous combo in the comp.

HM. Elliiot. His team selection was spot on. Matagi. He has lifted the other props up with his excellence. Good on him. Friend. We'd be so fucked without him. Mannering for crushing people.

Moment of the match: Friend smiling at his ex-team mate as he chokes him, shortly before the ref penalises him!:D

Clear favourite IMO. Konrad had a great game and was the difference for mine...

Comfortably, comfortably the best Warrior on show.

Some of the stuff in that game by the Warriors was just absolutely unfathomably stupid...

Hurrell without a doubt.

Mannering also very strong, Friend good, Matagi great, and some of Leuluai's and Peyroux's defence towards the end was outstanding.

However, man are we lucky to win that game... to the extent that I thought it was undeserved. Some of the play in that game was mind boggingly brain-dead at best: Ben Matulino grubbering on the forth, forty metres out with what was I am pretty sure his first carry of the game (I literally could not believe my eyes)?! Locke running himself over the sideline on play one with no pressure from the initial kick chase at a crucial time in the game; Rapira batting the Dummy-Half's hand AGAIN; Ropati passing to NO-ONE after that amazing break by Hurrell... One of the most frustrating games I've in a while, and that's saying something. This team desperately needs to grow some brain cells. Frankly, if it weren't for Konnie, we wouldn't have won tonight.

went for koni. Unstopable. Was impressed with most of the team tonight. Locke and Shaun Johnson combining well and big improvement on last few weeks. Even J Ro went well, maybe wing is his position? Only made one real error with that pass at the end that didn't need to be thrown. My only real concern is big Manu. He obviously still has plenty of fans and when he is at his best he deserves his spot. Right now, with is current form, he doesn't.

Ropati certainly silenced his critics tonight. Despite his only error I think switching him in for Laumape paid dividends.

Our attitude was great. I can live with the errors when we play that well for enough of the time.
3. Konrad.
2. Ropati
1. Johnson.

Kudos to Elliot.
