    If the bench doesn't get used effectively or used at all , hahahaha . I'm hitting the turps Friday night I might just record it and decide in the morning if I should bother. And that is a first for me this early in the season.

    Keighran only firmed as the front runner for first grade in the final trial game so I don’t think one good game against the dogs guaranteed his spot. Good to see Lawton in at 9, shame Jazz is still there though with our two top hookers out it’s inevitable I guess. I like the bench otherwise, Beale should be in for one of our centres though, can someone go and slash Katas tyres and make him late for training or something?

    If it wasn’t a Friday game that’s exactly what I’d do. He’ll id do it anyway but I’ll probably be working Saturday morning so I’ll have f**k all else to do.

    No work for me Saturday, actually no work at all but I'll have it on in the background just encase something happens.

    Roaches "tweek" of the calf must have been a good one. 3 weeks.

    Problems going to be if they win, it all gets reset and allowed to lose another 2 games.
    How the f**k Kata is still picked is now beyond me.
    It's not like we have no other options.

    How did we go from 'RTS - Johnson - Green - Luke', the best spine we've ever fielded..

    .. to 'RTS - CHT - Green - Lawton'

    Six more weeks of this and I won’t begrudge Roger one bit if he moves on

    I'm at the family compound watching it with the old man, an original 'shout at the TV' Warriors fan. In any given game, ball control was/is my dad's main bugbear (he's a West Coaster so, if you're going to be flashy, then you better perform).

    The last one we watched together the boys jumped out to an 18-0 lead at home against the Bulldogs (2012). Dad opened a good bottle of wine and we settled in to a Friday night, father and son, bonding session (as mum called it).

    The boys ended up losing and my drinking buddy got hoarse. Just like old times.

    Its almost like these teams are selected on two criteria
    1. Whos fit (not always the case)
    2. And the size of the pay packet rather than what they offer on the field.
    The word "form" is an alien word.

    The optimism seems to have been sucked out of this forum.

    Hey you get the Titans with both first choice halves back.

    Kata is not a poor mans Hurrell.

    Blair is an international superstar.

    Luke is dieting.

    Kearney is coach.

    Young fella gets a go.

    No bro culture.



    Carn Warriors, you can do it.

    I see they are running a double the punishment promo this weekend with the blues, where a ticket to either game can get you into both

    They are both obviously supremely confident of respective low attendance.

    The Warriors have conceded nine of their 15 tries through their right side defence (Ken Maumalo and Peta Hiku’s side), the equal most in the competition along with the Dragons.

    Saw that and smelt of desperation very early in the season.
    Struggle to get 5000 to the game I'd say(?), when Titans are a team we have a good record against.
