Last game of the year, played like shit the last 2 months !!

Surely some others should be given a chance. Any of the Vulcans perhaps ?

Collier for example, couldnt do any worse than Tupou could he ??

are you out of your Vulcan mind? I can't see Iro wanting to make too many changes, if any. Lucky's last game, I think the boys will be fired up, and had a full week to prepare the team without the sack bluey fiasco. I'm almost tempted to pick us this week......almost

Collier is barely good enough to play for the Vulcans let alone the Warriors, he needs to pack on some muscle and turn himself into a second rower. I haven't seen anyone in the Vulcans worthy of a call up to first grade....Sam Lousy is nowhere near good enough, he's just too slow and lumbering. Fish has all the physical attributes to be a super star, but has a pea sized heart and is made of glass. Godinet just doesn't play tough enough for his size which is why he gets dominated wherever he defends, and in turn is why he's basically last choice injury cover in every position he plays for the Warriors.

lol, we said that last week..I don't think we'll be fired up at all.. the boys probably can't wait for the season to be over. The Raiders on the other hand.. If they lose, they might miss out on the top 8, if they win and the sharks go down to NQ, they'll get a home semi. THEY are gonna be fired up..

I think they may get up for this one. If for no other reason than to give Michael Luck a good send off. At least show him some respect, even if they have no respect fro themselves. They should all be playing with the same courage, heart, and passion he has shown for all the years he's played for the team.
Their minds should not be on what the result can mean for Canberra. If they lose, it'd be their own doing. But for the warriors there is a lot to prove, mainly to themselves, for them not to go out and give it everything they have got left to give Luck the departure and retirement gift he deserves
GO THE WARRIORS!!!

Not sure if anyone heard Iro this morning on Live Sport but he said he was looking at making changes and that some players wouldn't be happy with the side he named today.

Ha Ha what a crack up. The team gets smashed on here from week to week, and rightly so after the way they have been playing.

Now here is a thread for some changes to be put out there and everyone goes back in there shell and thinks the status quo should remain

Lol !!

Who has Collier sucked off to get this much support? He is dead set average. Imagine Manu without the power running, top end speed and experience.

I dont think any are putting thier hands up from the Vulcans. Fish on the wing maybe, but I think he needs this pre season to train him up.

@ Facefacts, I agree with most of what you say, but is that based on Warriors games or do you watch the Vulcans? Last year I would agree with you about Lousi, but after being named player of the year and apparently carving up, I've heard him impress many. He's doing what alot more in this team should be doing, a Vulcan apprentiship. Harden him up.

Lousi, Lousi, Rapira over Poching. He went over seas then came back at the start of the season, not sure why, but seems to be used on the bench. I dont think our props are the problem atm.

Not just from you mate, he has popped up on other topics and forums.

I think people are under estimating the Fish. Anyone can see his potential, and because of confidence, injury or whatever he didnt fire with his chances this season. I think he needs a big pre season and will be away.

So your answer is to put out a winger who can't make the Vulcans into first grade and that will solve all our problems? I think not.

I don't rate Tupou but dropping him for a nobody in the last round is not the answer.

Fish would have to be it then from the backs to be given a go in the topside, most of the vulcans aren't up to the NRL standards and some have had a go + didn't cut it. Heard a whisper though Fish might be heading to OZ soon, nrl deal on the table....

Every game iv'e seen him play from the 20's right up to and particularly for the Warriors, has done nothing but confirm my opinion that he is just to slow, particularly on defense. His huge size will make him strong basically by default, which will make him a handful with ball in hand at times, but it's the rest of his game that i'm worried about, particularly against the talent and speed in first grade...i dont think iv'e ever seen a player with slower all round movement as him. that said he may prove me wrong in time, but i doubt it.
