Should win regardless of Tevaga playing at hooker tomorrow against the Titans but if Luke still isn’t right for the Dragons we’ll struggle to create the platform we need to score points against their defensive qualities.

I’m guessing Jazz will play the first 25 minutes before moving into the forwards when Gavet and Paasi are interchanged, coaches must feel 80 minutes of NRL is too much for Lawton at this stage.

Really missing Roache right now.
Kearney has correctly identified the Warriors biggest problem. Apathy.

That's why his selections don't always make sense from a skills perspective. He picks the players who are the most committed to the club, regardless of whether they are the most skilled or talented for the position.

This approach will bear fruit in the years to come as players slowly get it into their thick heads that attitude is more important than talent.

Back from the hospital and chilling at home now, feeling blessed!

Shaun johnson’s Instagram looks eerily scary for the NRL, he looks like he has regained his confidence back and I do predict him to have a blinder today, we’ll see him regain that running confidence. Lmao mark my words!

Another prediction, warriors will win the premiership this year. I feel like There’s a new sense of belief and optimism in the whole structure of the club. With Kearney making composed decisions about dropping Luke for his comments, it shows that there is maturity in our coach. Also, we needed Bully to speak up about the refs as well. We all know that the warriors have to fight the NRL in order to win the premiership, and I really do believe that the time is soon.

Amp up fellas, it’s gna be a BIG FKN THRASHING today! Jheez the titans really can’t catch a break against us

Fusitua to get the hat trick I keep calling.

Bunty gets one.

Green 3 try assists.

RTS a try on the right side and a support run that gets him an offload from Iggy. Then he guns it on an angle, steps Gordon and outruns Don, Sami and Konstipation to score towards the left corner.

SJ to remember that Fusitua can catch quite well so bombs away.

Pulu. Try on return plus 12 "thank you Lord's" and seven different handshakes on the glorious walk back past halfway.

Kata to take seven dummy half darts. But still allergic to passing left.

Then we invite someone else into the after match huddle for a Warriors appreciation moment.

Or he is simply a dumb ass.

Dannyool maybe I missed it but was it confirmed somewhere that Luke was dropped for his comments? Thought it was his injury still hampering him?

Today is Vuna's day. Bag those 3x tries son and make your mark. I too think SJ will have a blinder. Dry, sunny track. Doesn't get better than this. Warriors 13+ and Konnie into the huddle for some warm fuzzies

He's studied under Bennett and Bellamy, and he's taken the Kiwis to No.1 in the world rankings.

After witnessing first hand the issues our team faced during the last 6 seasons, I'm happy with him making some uncomfortable decisions today for the long term benefit of the club.
Or he is like all the the other coaches n has his favourites and persists much longer than he should.

Not saying that he should drop Jazz, just play him differently. But Hiku was beyond a joke. Sau too. Sau reminds me of Ivan with Inu. Hiku reminds me of Ivan with Mateo, and Lance at fullback.

I think SK was giving Beale time to recover from his back injury. That's why Hiku was given so much time to amend his tackling technique.

And it's worked. Beale is hitting his opposites like a truck ATM.

I have no problems with Kearneys season management thus far. If everything goes to plan we won't be limping into the finals at all.

I wish that Luke was playing. With him out, I'm really not sure where our points are going to come from. Service is going to be so beyond fucking slow if and when SuperKunt puts Jazz into hooker for 60 minutes.

I thought we'd put 50 on the Titans when the Tuesday team came out, now I'll just be happy with a win of any kind.

Hey Danyooll,

Great to hear you are out of hospital brother! Your optimism is so off the charts, I want some of those meds! ;p

I will take a one point win today, tough game against a top class forward pack, a team with nothing to lose and us without Luke and with a very young and inexperience pack. A great test for Kearney, the game plan and our belief.

Go the Warriors!

Dam straight. First goal for today is a win. Second thing is a win by 5 points. Third is a win by 41 points although can’t see that happening with Jazz at hooker.

I am going to be busy until 5pm, hopefully this is one of those games where we turn the heat up in the second half so I can see all the good stuff live ha!!

Hoping for a MASSIVE win to build on confidence going into the bogey team revenge game next week! Even though Tigers and Raiders losing has maintained the top 8 breathing room, I'd hate to see the classic complacency creep in.

Why not keep the dreams alive?

4th thing. A 66 - 0 drubbing t jump the Panthers.
5th thing. A world record NRL annihilation 132 - 0, then we wave as we step over the Roosters (and hope they lose to the dragons this week of course to 4th.

Then next week we destroy the Dragons and begin the hunt for the next obstacle to minor prems.
