Warriors vs Storm Gameday Chatter [Round 19, 2018]

Like every game to won the forwards have step up.

Having Lino there might be a motivation for this to happen.

My main concern is Shaun Johnson thinking he has to do both his and Linos job. Shaun Johnson just has to play his own game and let Mason play his. Being in two minds would be bad.

The injured players are starting to come back. So the starting forwards and bench have to show they deserve to be there. The only way to do that is on the field and at training.

A very good position to be in. Win or lose today against a very good Storm side I am comfortable where the team is at.

Big game today for the overall context of our season ... win today & a genuine run at the Top 4 beckons

Win today & win well ... and the rest of the comp will have been put on notice ... The Warriors Are Awake!!!

Embracing the grind & producing low error high percentage footy is obviously an essential requirement when going up against Melbourne

But if we are to unlock the Storm's highly structured defensive systems then some quality ad lib footy coupled with 2nd-3rd-4th phase play & ever present support runners will be the key

Just as importantly though, this is a chance for our team to make amends for the Anzac Day Ambush & extract a bit of good old fashioned ...

PAYBACK!!! ...



HEY!!! ... Got-To-Gotta ... PAYBACK!!! ... The Big Payback ... REVENGE!!! ... I'm Mad ... Got To Get Back ... I Need Some Get Back ... PAYBACK!!!

REMEMBER ANZAC DAY!!! ... GET DOWN WITCHYA BAD SELF & GO THE MIGHTY WARRIORS!!!

Storm are back to full strength so are damnably hard to beat. Could happen, hope it's close.

Have Lino and Johnson ever started together? It seemed to always be hingano and Johnson and this year it's been Lino and Green

Cold hard facts are we play a team lead by the greatest player of our generation? ably supported by a further 9 International players? best winning record in recent time and a system that breads champions.

You know we win by overs....

I know we will come out firing as we have heard how much Anzac day hurt them. What till be critical is if we score first or blow our chances at their end. We will definitely have the first scoring opportunity we just need to take it!

I'm hoping like hell the lads don't go out onto the paddock looking for redemption over the Anzac Day match. The team (especially the forwards) tends to burn out and fuck things up every time they try to do more than play the game in front of them. Apart from that, the two biggest threats will be:

1. Cameron Smith's incessant conversations with the refs resulting in penalties against us.
2. Shaun Johnson trying to play touch footy.

Get players running into one on one tackles and be ready for the late offload at all times.

Unstoppable.

It's charity day at Mt Smart. Maybe Melbourne Storm can help cause and lose for us . . . ;)

Seriously I'm not feeling confident about this game but I still think we're going to win all same.

Go NZ Warriors ! :)

Looking forward to the game. Hopefully,
the Warriors come out fighting from the start.

What is the crowd expectations. 20k plus would be good.

I actually think there is a decent chance that the Storm play a bit rusty today given that this is the first time that their origin players have been together for awhile. So if we play well, we could ambush them just like the Tigers did against the Rabbits yesterday.

Right, big day on the plant.

Lino in and will have Rooster's type game. If Vuna plays, he gets his 3x tries today off the back of some Shaun Johnson magic. Think the forwards will have a point to prove and with Simon's future confirmed, another huge game from him. I'm hoping they may target the storm right and we might just see Sol creating some mayhem there.

Get a fair suck of the sav from the Refs (interesting to see what happens now after the raiders fiasco) and it stays dry, I hope our offloading and 2nd phase will bring us home.

Warriors 13+

All Bellamy has to really do is implement the same game plan as ANZAC day, not sure why more coaches havn't done it against us tbh.

Will be an interesting game, hopefully the boys turn up for the W or Storm will be sitting pretty on top of the ladder.

GL Warriors!!
