he has a lot to learn.. the warriors are just as shit as the bulldogs and next year probably worse
It's a bit ironic that a lot warriors fans where happy to see him go, it was just a couple of months ago where SJ requested for a return at the warriors they said no, I wonder what changed.

Desperation , Nikorima wants away , wants to remain in Aus , and we are seeing for ourselves how thin the ranks of quality halfs is , far less trying to convince one to move to NZ . Don't worry , most Warrior supporters don't see his return as anything but underwhelming , and SJ just feathering his bed for retirement . No one is expecting him to drag them into the finals .

And not much time left to learn it.

Great player - great bloke. Just no killer instinct.
He's always struggled to carry the mantle of the next "Stacey Jones " , whilst he had some of the brilliance he has never had the heart nor the consistency and toughness of Stacey Jones . Stacey put in very few poor games whilst SJ put in very few great ones .
As the old gage of a player goes , the difference between his worst and his best is too wide , too wide to be considered and elite player . Which is a shame because his great games were special to watch , especially early on , in the end i think he just found it too tough a burden to carry .

Or maybe he just liked to play pretty, and when going got tough he was found out

Certainly could look like that a lot , but the funny thing is that he can play tough but those games are few and far between . The games where he takes the ball to the line and takes the hit or takes the line on and shows and goes , and then tackles like he's 120kg's , those games he looked the man . Then he would go missing for games in a row , his kicking game would be rubbish , miss countless tackles , would just facilitate the ball getting from one player to the next , never getting dirty .
What we have seen at the Sharks is what he has been all his career , never seen him as our type of player when he arrived and he never proved me wrong , unfortunately .

When we had to win against broncs couple weeks back and submitted in that tackle to go into the in goal, that showed straight up, his heart is not in it

The warriors must have seen him accelerate and then break in half and think to themselves what have we done?

He is gonna slap him and get the best out of him
Be interesting to know where Gus sat in all this.
Was he for or against. His leaving was around the same time.
Was he against and as soon as Gus told them he was leaving they then signed him?
Did Gus know he was going so signed SJ to weaken them for future bulldogs games?

If you jump on the Warriors forum it seems the general consensus is they're stoked to have him back. I do realise they're standards are lower than ours. They're in for some dissapointment.

Yeah , probably the same ones that were posting how happy they were to see him leave 3 years ago , we're a fickle bunch us forum posters .
Nikorima has been even more vanilla for them that they see him as an improvement , they have issues from general manager down .
