    Can't wait till the Knights play the Warriors. How does the game pan out when one team can't do anything to get a win and the other does everything they can to lose

    We've seen the Tigers beat both the Warriors and Souths, so I think thats answered.

    couldn't agree more mate. the game plan just seems off. they are constantly stuck trying to play structured at all times and playing "Warrior ball" that it inevitably goes wrong. Will be harder this season with RTS out but the game plan for this season should have been simple. Do the hard yards and then let your spine create when you are in the right position. But a lot of that comes back to the culture. One thing I often notice watching the games is that the Warriors defensive line always looks slow compared to other teams. Very rarely will it come up hard and fast and try to restrict yards like other teams. If you are constantly getting the ball from kick returns near your goalline as you can't limit the opponents yardage you will find it hard to force pressure yourself. That means that on the 4th and 5th guys like SJ are getting themselves in a position to punt out of their territory rather than looking for a set move with RTS with the defence protecting their line.

    But the props is a big problem. Besides Lillyman, there is a major lack of do the hard yards type attitude a team like the Warriors need. Matulino is too bothered with trying to put a step on and get an offload, while the likes of Vete and Lisone think they can just run into an opponent like in junior level and their sheer size means they win each matchup. As much as they aren't the marque types some fans feel they are entitled to, the Warriors need some solid ball runners like Mannah, Vaughan, Tolman who will run at the line every minute of the match if need be. Just some straight solid running to get a platform and some yardage.

    Yup, and the coaching staff, management, and owners aren't idiots. They must know we are really struggling up front, but it just must be incredibly difficult, perhaps impossible to lure guys like you've mentioned over. Maybe, just maybe with RTS, SJ, and Luke in there and if the club has a massive cleanup and gets rid of some of the disrespectful idiots in the squad, perhaps even getting Clearly back in there, then some talent might be able to be lured over. I hope they can offload Manu and Conrad before next season, perhaps even get rid of Matulino too.

    Pretty sad to hear that the real reason the 6 got dropped was because of taking a cocktail of prescription drugs and energy drinks (although I understand Hurrell has denied it). No wonder they got dropped, this was the same issue that illegally arose during the last RLWC and presumably involved some of the same players. Pretty disgraceful really, but perhaps a blessing in disguise for the Warriors. Hopefully they can move on from this as a more professional team and continue to p[lay with the heart they showed against SG.

    Can confirm the feeling is similar. More of a headache the next day tho, stillnox is a very strong drug.

    Peachey discovered the best way to get a hattrick - play on Blake ayshfords side of the field.

    Well it really can't be much worse than this now...Cappy & Justin Morgan saying there's going to be shakeup and hopefully it proves right. No determination, no commitment, no motivation, no respect.

    Would like to see a team similar to this in 2 weeks - prefer more drastic action but the juniors have been getting blown out recently and there's not a lot of promising talent coming through...

    Tui
    Fusitua
    Hurrell/Allwood
    Kata
    Manu
    Lino
    Johnson
    Vete
    Luke
    Lillyman
    Lane
    Hoffman
    Mannering
    --
    Tevaga
    Gubb
    Sipley
    Sao/Thompson

    Drop Matulino, Leuluai, Dumb and Dopey (Ayshford & Wright), Lisone, Palavi & Gavet.

    Looks like Warriors are starting to clean up their 'shit' culture. Hurrell released, Manu being shopped around. Two players who thought their status as fan favourites would protect them no matter how little they produced on the field.

    Good luck to those brave enough to see this through.

    As per usually with this sort of thing it hasn't been officially announced, but as you say it was rumoured ages ago and now they are saying they are officially in talks with the Titans now.

    Funnily enough though, I was listening to radio sport coming into work today and Konrads manager accidentally called the radio station and in doing so let on he was actually trying to contact DHL, so I guess the deal is done Smile

    Kata signed on until the end of the 2019 season.
    Maumalo signed on until the end of the 2018 season.
    Tevaga signed on until the end of the 2018 season.

    Good stuff.
