If SJ comes back whole, this is starting to look like a top 4 squad.
While I will agree that for once it certainly looks like the Warriors are finally going after a premiership, there squad has had top 4 potential for the last few seasons. The problem has never been the team is weak on paper, or if every single player in the league plays to their best ability they aren't good enough. Warriors problem has always been attitude and a general willingness to put in the hard yards and effort when they need to.
Regardless of whether you think Cappy is a good enough coach, I think a problem that many Warriors fans have (myself included), is that I don't think Cappy is a premiership winning coach. Very rarely does a team win the comp without a top coach. Maybe Cappy is a good enough NRL coach, maybe he isn't but frankly I don't care. The team has recruited in such a way that it is clearly obvious to all what they are targeting. Top 8 isn't good enough with this side. It's top 4 and shot at winning the GF so they need to try and get a coach who can achieve that for them or they could waste a squad that is primed with young talent, experienced forwards and one of the best spine combos in the game.
