Warriors Orange Peeler
Warriors vs Eels Gameday Chatter [Round 17, 2020]



There’s always next year.
I’m sorry

I’m going against the grain and bringing you cu**s back to earth

Eels are a top 4 team

they’re be desperate to get some consistency given finals are less than a month a away

top4 team


We are missing a truck load of players ....


This is literally a patch work group

gap is way too big to bridge

eels don’t wanna be embarrassed

Kia Kaha boys

heart says Warriors

head says Eels gonna put us to bed early .....
All the stars seem to be aligning for the Warriors to make a late run into the 8.

Will the team roll out the same tired old movie that all longtime Warriors supporters have seen all too often ???

Have they raised our hopes only to stumble & fall with the goal so tantalizingly close yet again ???

I wrote last week that IMO there's something intangibly special happening in this group.

Some kind of bond/group determination that only comes from shared adversity.

So, with all that in mind, I'm gonna ignore my head, which is telling me today's match is most likely a bridge too far.

And instead listen to my heart, which is telling me there's something different/special about this group.

Warriors to pull off a match of the round win by a Janfin special.

Rugby league: The driving force behind Warriors star Peta Hiku's purple patch of form

Happy people make for good footballers.

Over the past month, Warriors centre Peta Hiku has personified that notion. The 27-year-old has tapped into a rich vein of form, playing with plenty of energy and enthusiasm.

It hasn't gone unnoticed by head coach Todd Payten, who put Hiku's purple patch down to one factor.

"I think he's been really strong in the past four weeks, and I've got no doubt that coincided with when his family arrived," Payten said.

"His form at the start of the year was a little inconsistent but he's found that consistency and I firmly believe he's much more settled off the park and he goes into the game with a clear focus."

In the Warriors' past five matches, Hiku, who re-signed with the club for 2021 earlier in the week, is averaging 16 tackles per game with three misses and fewer than one handling error per game; all of which are improvements on his early-season form.

While he's been able to show better ball security and an improved defensive effort, his attacking production has not been impacted as he is still constantly surpassing the 100m mark in each game and has been both scoring tries and providing sensational try assists.

Hiku's play in recent weeks has reflected that of the Warriors, with the club emerging as a dark horse for the playoffs.

Through the first 11 rounds the Warriors were outscored 296-119. Since then, they have outscored opponents 120-80 in five matches including games against the league-leading Penrith Panthers, two-time defending champion Sydney Roosters and the seventh-placed Newcastle Knights.

With four matches remaining, the Warriors sit in 10th place, four points behind the Cronulla Sharks. The Warriors have a tough run home, with the Parramatta Eels, Sharks, Canberra Raiders and Manly Sea Eagles waiting on the schedule.

The match against the Sharks could prove to be pivotal in their quest to crack the top eight, however Payten wasn't letting the side think too far ahead.

"We've still got a way to go to make the finals. We definitely have to win this week, then we play Cronulla; they're the team we really need to peg back.

"Our first thought is this weekend, and whatever happens we just get on with it."

Warriors team to play the Eels:

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Adam Pompey, Hayze Perham, Peta Hiku, Gerard Beale, Kodi Nikorima, Chanel Harris-Tavita, Jamayne Taunoa-Brown, Karl Lawton, Lachlan Burr, Jack Murchie, Tohu Harris, Jazz Tevaga.

Interchange: Wayde Egan, Adam Blair, Josh Curran, Isaiah Papali'i, Paul Turner, Tom Ale (two to be omitted)
