    Poor kicking game and lack of composure from Johnson and Townsend cost us today

    Plenty of positives in our rookies and Bodene and Hoffman

    Everyone should be disgusted with that last 30minutes.

    Absolutely fucking horrendous.

    Fuck off with the Chad hate - SJ needs to get BLASTED for his performance today. Didn't even do the little things right.

    Rookies stood up. Forwards great. Defense solid in patches.


    All isn't bad.... Reintegrate Tomkins and we are more dynamic. Hurrell should have taken the night off. Made some shot decisions with the ball.

    But we will all blame Chad aye. Atleast he fucken tried boys.

    We gotta stop making that excuse we're a professional team. Our super rugby/a-league and breakers all manage to do it (and past their bedtime). Theres no excuse why we cant.

    If the Warriors could just find a couple of halves who don't capitulate under pressure.

    If there's three things you can be sure of in life - they're Death, Taxes, and the Warriors to lose in round one.

    Absolutely awful all around. Knights easily outplayed us. Lucky to get those extra 2 points - but both our tries were just close to the line run ins.

    No last tackle options - Johnson and Townsend were fucking dreadful. Dropped balls all round. One of the worse performances in recent memory.

    It's only Round one and we all knew this was coming - but it's still not a great way to start the year.

    Have to say, Shaun was comfortably our worst player out there (yes, even worse than Chad)... In fact, I'd go as far as to say he almost looked to be playing injured so little was his impact on the game.

    Still, a huge amount of positives to take from the game, considering all of the circumstances surrounding it.

    Well... You know the Warriors are back when they manage to lose a game after being gifted a penalty try and the other team team gets yellow carded.

    Hoffman looks like he will a very, very good signing though. Meanwhile Lolohea has been more threatening at the back in one game than Tomkins was all of last year.

    Gripes and positives aside for a moment, my how I've missed the roller-coaster that is being a Warriors fan. Just so glad that the League is back on - despite the result.

    Lisone was great. Vete was pretty good to... Lolohiea showed his class... Kata also has a big future in FG...

    Tomkins to 6 for his kicking game and composure in the middle. SJ needs someone who is holding their shit together ala Foran... Lolohiea can keep that FB spot until he fucks up IMO...

    Our hookers were great, which was a real positive.

    And if everyone tackles like Mannering we win this comp...

    Where was;

    Manu
    SJ
    Matangi
    Lillyman
    Henry

    Rookies went well.

    Our kicking game was shit and is something we need to start focusing on.

    I agree, but not without some conditioning... Coaching staff need to work these guys in the heat so they are ready for it IMO....

    Auckland high temp this week was 26 degrees, Newcastles was 32. So they Newcastle team feel like we do when it's 20 degrees in the sun... And we get hammered in what's our hottest temperature... Without any heat training we'll always run out of gas first...

    Very proud of the effort. There was so much going against us leading into the game that I would have been happy with a close loss and that's what we got. Things fell apart in the last 20, but that came as no surprise.

    Yeah, I felt that when Chad had that poor first half the pressure really went on SJ and he didn't handle it well from the start of the 2nd half.
