If Turner is our future 7, why is he playing all of his games at 1? I get that the positions are similar in the modern age, and there is a propensity to nurse players in, It just feels a bit strange to me.

And Rhyse Martin was immense last year. Strange not to see him in the extended 22 in a pretty weak Dogs side despite their forward depth.

Pretty standard to nurse kids who may not be physically ready to defend in the line through at fullback. Also a little less pressure...

I get that, and obviously trust the management around him.

I guess I'd like to see him in the halves on attack. If kicking is his biggest work on, he is not going to have as much chance to hone that at fullback. I guess I'm just a bit jaded by the Lolohea type interference that prevented him from having time to settle into a demanding position over the length of time needed to cope in FG. Our aussie counterparts are in those positions from a very early age in much tougher environments than the guys here as they grow up.

Winning in ISP doesn't matter, but injury and confidence does, so I guess it is a hard balance to get right.

I don't expect him to be out for long. The 4 or 5 trainings I have watched this preseason he has been getting stuck in. He impressed me the most in the last one I watched on Tuesday. Doesn't hold back from trying to belt people where as everyone else looks they are saving a little bit back...
Any ideas on why he fell down the pecking order? I know last season was almost a write off because of injury but even on his comeback he was regularly 18th man. This season however he finds himself out of the extended bench and not in genuine consideration throughout the trials

No idea mate. I'll ask around when I get a chance...

The named squad will get reduced down in a couple of hours but the actual playing side won't released until an hour before kick off.

I left at home at halftime in this one to go to the game, didn't realise we'd come back so much in the second half.

That's some side on paper. Hope they perform a bit better than last weekend. Still not sold with Perham at stand off. The backline looks good though and a strong pack, will be keen to see Milne in action.

I'm guessing the coaching staff are aware that we wasn't anywhere near his best after that busted ankle last year and are giving him time to find fitness / form / confidence

A thrashing today, unfortunately games not won on paper. Maybe the depth not as strong as we would have hoped for ... still early days though.

Anyone got a result for this weeks game?

Don't panic, I see it was an 18-18 draw. Better than last week then

Better yes, but led by 8 with less than 10 to go and couldn't close it out. Scored 4 tries to 3 but 1/4 conversions.

they had no possession in the second half. there was one part of the game blacktown had 5 sets of 6 on the warriors line and they defended it well. tries came from back to back penalties. being at the ground hard to say if the penalties were warrented. old mate ref was very happy to blow the whistle though
