    I hope Brian Smith is ready for a tap on the shoulder, would be a good caretaker coach if we have someone else lined up but not ready to come for 2020

    Remember the classic late 80's movie 'Weekend at Bernies'

    About a bunch of guys carry around their dead friend's body pretending to everyone he's still alive

    Well thats what supporting the Warriors is like with Kearney as the coach. The season is dead and over but every weekend we get to pretend like we are still alive in the NRL finals hopes.

    Every game is 'Weekend at Kearney's'

    Kearney is now on the Raiders bandwagon hardcore.

    Wants his off season mantra to be "We beat the premiers last game, B E L I E V E!!"

    He was on their bandwagon when they thrashed us earlier last month.

    Another rumour I’ve heard.

    Very early in the season, Adam Keighran spoke up in a video review session regarding the performance of some of the senior leadership group, which they didn’t take kindly too, and saw him banished down to the reserves

    Yet another indictment on Stephen if that is the case and it lets the lunatics run the asylum

    How do I get the message through to the club that it's either Mooks or me?

    Email or phone call.
    Possible Facebook and Instagram, with a side of Twitter.

    In all fairness, that's not very intelligent. Would Cam Smith take kindly to a rookie picking apart his performance?

    Fair, but I imagine it will be something along the lines of “Blairy, why are you always seagulling out wide instead of taking your hitups” which had some merit lol

    What is the point of it then?

    Either do it and be honest or do not bother at all.

    The rabbit hole is deep Alice.

    Yeah I have seen that rumour before. Don't think there is any back up for it, so chose to not read into it too much. If he did upset an oldy or two, likely would have been Green seeing as they were the half pairing.

    Man I can't wait to see Blair go.. Such a waste of money that guy. He should be on the bench for 10-20 minute games, with a $200k contract at best. Instead it appears he can choice where ever he plays and is on over 3 times that.

    Hope that Harris is teaching some of our young guns how to play second row, and not copying what Blair/Papa does.

    Sure but if we had a Smith in the pack we wouldn’t be dog shit awful


    If tru, Keighran showing more leadership than the rest of the joint

    Matty Johns podcast review:
    To reliant on back 3 to start the set.
    Forwards lazy because of it.
    Pack disappointing compared to past.
    Love for Rodger, worried about his work load, captaincy and having to create.
    Need a demanding coach who requires them to bring it to training.
    Been giving 30mins then falling a sleep is their history with a few exceptions.

    More Matty Johns podcast about training.
    Cant treat it like a job showing up 10mins before and leaving after warm down jumping in the car.
    Need to spend hours with your backrow working combo and calls so ready to go under pressure.

    Looks like we could do with Matty showing up for the review.

    Ha yeah, I guess someone had to deliver that message. The coach won't, and if we as fans say it we're 'haters'.

    I hear your point, but there's no point pretending that human nature dictates a rookie can have his say about senior players without repercussion. Please don't walk into your next management meeting at work and suggest to the Board that they're doing a shit job. The dole doesn't pay much.

    It's brave, don't get me wrong. But I've been there in senior teams, you just need to find a better way to address it if you've got concerns about the way experienced players are going about it. I don't think if i was a senior player, I'd be too keen to be told by a guy in his first season about how it should be. How would he know?

    Sure... but if true pretty damning that a rookie is the one stating the incredibly obvious... Coach and Captain should be leading this - I suspect neither are... need a new coach, and stronger leadership on the park (not blaming Roger, but needs to be more here)

    Culture clash for the kid

    Probably went home wondering WTF he did wrong.

    On Speculation, word is Gallen gave Shaun a spray in front of teammates about looking after his body,after pulling out of the Canberra game, Shaun responded with a classy game V Tigers.
