JAMES Maloney says the critics are right – the Warriors aren’t ruthless enough.

Last Sunday the Aucklanders opened up 16-0 lead by the 13th minute against North Queensland and then allowed it to be gobbled up, clinging grimly to a 22-18 advantage for 16 nerve-racking minutes of the second half.

Five-eighth Maloney says it’s no use complaining about people who accuse the Warriors of being flaky and flighty “Probably, with the performances we’re putting on the paddock at the moment, you couldn’t argue with them,” he said.

“We’re not putting the 80 together at the moment. At times we’re getting away with it but it’s costing us at other times.“It’s something we’re constantly working on. We’ve got to make sure it clicks sometime soon.”
