Hear me out guys....

Manu OR Maumalo?

This weather that is coming tonight is supposed to be worse than the rain 2 days ago in Auckland.
A months worth of rain in a night.

It will be a forwards game.
How about playing a prop on each wing = Two extra forwards.
Unless somebody thinks Tui is a wet weather specialist?

If memory serves, Tui seems to utterly vanish in the wet. Our wing options are pretty dismal, so I don't dislike your thought process.

For anybody that's planning on mentioning Manu's shit defence - lets not act like Tui is some kind of defensive dynamo. Manu comes rushing in, Tui makes halfhearted shirt grabs which have even less chance of stopping anything.
 
How weird is it having Game Day Chatter on a Friday?!
Fark it, just gonna chuck it out there..
Warriors win in golden point with a runaway try to Tui.
(My thinking may be wishful but I saw a shooting star last night and santa told me wishes do come true)
Now bring on Friday night footy!!
 
Awesome. Don't know man if I'm going to go tonight cause of weather but it doesn't mean that I don't want to as I really, really, really, do think NZ Warriors has got this when you look at the current Melbourne Storm line up and amount of injuries they have on their roster. Jesse Bromwich is a huge loss and no matter how many big games Cameron Munster has had they're still missing Billy Slater. You watch. This is going to be a game for the ages and the one that will define our season the most. The confidence they will take out of this beating the Melbourne Storm will give them momentum they need to start winning games and getting back into top eight for the first time since forever !!! Go NZ Warriors ! Let's win this shit ! :)

Well.... brace yourself. This is what is expected.
They say it will be centralised in pockets around Auckland. Let's see if the rain targets Mt Smart.
If it targets Mt Smart. Knowing this clubs luck it will be centralised on top of Mt Smart.

I was at a Tigers game in the mid 2000's where it was so bad they had on the ground announcement that you could pretty much take any seat under cover you liked ie if you are in the north or south stands get your arse to the east or west and get under cover. If you low on the east or west head for higher ground.

On TV it came across like parts of last Friday nights games where the weather blocked the screens.

A months worth or rain does sound like an intimidating prospect for a footy game. Or even in general. There better not be any rain fade on the Sky broadcast.

Hope we can expect a better game from Ken

I remember it well - poor people flooded into the seats reserved for the upper classes (I wrote to the Times of London to complain!)
 
Bracing for a hiding, anything less....like a respectable defeat will be a bonus.

Shitty conditions always favors grinding footy teams.

Slow PTB's and better completion rates points to a Storm win.

Still there was that one time at Mt Smart where the Wiki and the Warriors ground out a low scoring win on a cold day.

Seriously low odds of victory due to the two opponents relative strengths and weaknesses.

Go out and prove me wrong Warriors....
 
Didn't even think about that!
Rain fade is almost a certainty.
I'm going to record the replay too just in case.
Rain fade and the backup plan of SkyGo probably won't work either. Thought I'd be nice last weekend and let the wife use the TV and I'll use SkyGo until her program finishes no luck there as it came up offline.:(

Civil Defence just issued a severe weather warning for Auckland.
And we need to save water. Not sure what this stuff falling from the sky is called.

Have to admit, I like the make up of that bench. Will be interesting to see what role Thompson plays as he won't be burdened by the hooking duties.
