Little bit nervous about this one. Away game, Tigs won last week, two experienced campaigners in Benji and Farah. Will stick to 12 and under.

Should be too strong across the park for them and looking forward to seeing how AK goes this week along with our new right centre.

First try Fusitua
MoM Bully
Warriors 22-12

I've gone 13+. No idea really this early in the season but it should be a Warriors win. By how much is anyones guess.
And I've got a new 3K to play with so not too concerned just so long as we win
Hanging out for game time

Back to back wins over the same side are always tricky for the Warriors. I put that down to our past coaches being quite readable when they play back the tape. After that it comes down to knowing what to do to counter the Warriors vs being able to do it.

Shouldn't be as big an issue in this case, the last meeting being a trial means they didn't get to play the main side for a full eighty minutes. But most of all the new combinations means no ones seen all there is to see.

Having Luke back is a big deal, hopefully he's ready to go for seventy to eighty minutes. Roach did well last week, but there were a few instances where Ah Mau and our big wingers got poor service, slowing their momentum forward.

Really looking forward to Luke and Ah Mau playing together.

Referees: Ashley Klein, Matt Noyen;Sideline Officials: Michael Wise, Peter Gough;Video Referees: Henry Perenara, Ben Galea;
Like him or not we have a top official.

I don't mind Kline, he is immune to pressure. What I don't like is that he seems to have the habit of picking on one side, which has worked for NZ teams in the past, and backfired at other times.

Probably the sought of Ref you want to play tidy in front of and let him single out the other mob.

Henry is the video box is probably the safest place for him.

Dude can't even make an effort to pronounce the most basic players names last night, his butchery of Poly names is horrendous, I think he might be the worst of any voice in the NRL for it.

Watch for the heat to be applied to Benji and Robbie today. The belief is that while the smarts of Farah and a little of Marshall are the threat, it’s also their weakness if we can pressure those two big time.

Last game of the round on a Sunday night … sighs … such a long time to wait … can't rip in too early or … 🥴🤢🤮😴

I'm looking for us to continue building towards a potential Top 4 spot & dominate the Tigpies today

Warriors 13+ … Our back 5 are the best in the NRL at getting attacking sets off to a positive start & our pack should rock 'n' roll off the back of that

If Luke ends up playing decent minutes & is anywhere near in form & fit we will have his running threat & experience along with his crisper overall service & a potentially wider attacking platform from the ruck, so with that in mind our attack should be a bit more polished & sharper than it was last week

In defence I think we dominate the Tigs with better line speed, energy & aggression

Extra motivation provided by a team desire to prove consistency & picking up a rare win at Campbelltown

Also really looking forward to seeing how young Keighran goes in the classic Rookie vs Veteran match up with Benji

GO THE WARRIORS!!! 🇳🇿💪😎

Klein is a cheat. But he's an erratic cheat, can rip off anyone at any time.
