Think resting players was the wrong decision for this warriors side.

Panthers by 20 and warriors out in straight sets the week after.
Nah, plenty of players with niggles and no guarantee of matchup next week even if we risked them and won yesterday. It was the right move for sure, they will be fit and ready to go for Saturday.


The peoples team vs the team that got screwed by the NRL 2020-2022.

Any result is a great result. Thank God the likes of the Broncos or Souths won't be around to taint this awesome match up.

I think it's the right decision to make this a good timeslot for the Warriors fans, they earned it through covid. In saying that come full time I reckon a few might be wishing it had been the late game so they could have slept through the pain. If we come out serious this should be a stomping.


First Grade
Wahs with all the payback leg ups for saving the game during covid and they could only manage 3rd. They should at least make the prelim from here if they have any gumption.
