    i said in another thread that goal kicking didnt worry me. well its starting to worry me. i understand missing shots from out wide but close to the uprights isnt acceptable. thats two weeks in a row. Halligan is our coach right? we got SGH in can we get maybe get someone in who can turn around our goal kick woes

    Awesome win. Well done Warriors

    I just started listing the individual outstanding players but most of them made the list. A great effort. We have some amazing talent and it was on show today
    I can't pick a clear MOM. Fus, Maumalo, Johnson, maybe Mannering?

    Our defence stood out for me today. We let one try in and the bunker let in another. How sweet it was to watch the Tits get turned away again and again

    And we have a new front runner for dud commentator. Who was that? And did he actually reach a "happy ending" at one point when he was tugging away about Hayne?

    I would just like to say, that I for one, never doubted them. Everything I said in the other thread was purely for their motivation.

    Nah happy to proven wrong, well and truly.

    I can't remember a better performance since 2011.

    A few points...I thought Tui was poor, if he's been working on his reaction times it sure isn't showing! He gets dragged back in-goal way too easily with his body height when taking a tackle. Also, I have no idea what he thinks he's achieving with his jinks on the spot but the opposition isn't fussed. Nice kick to force the repeat set, otherwise a decidedly average match from him. Why he decided to double pump that pass when we had the 4 man overlap is beyond me, all it did was give Hayne the opportunity to knock it down.

    Thought Vete, Matulino, Bodene, Hoffman played well. Roache looks a cut above Tevaga. Not a fan of the way Tevaga lies around the ruck and gets penalised at dumb times, also some of his dummy half passes looked forward and lazy.

    Simon is a colossus.

    Fusi and Kata and again played well, epic fend from Kata. Though why he then ran the ball into the corner when we don't have a kicker....that wasn't the smartest. Manu had a few good carries but man those errors inside our half are just unforgiveable. They're not the same as errors on attack on the opposition's try line, his error led to back-to-back Titans sets of 6 and completely shifts the momentum.

    But yeah, overall there wasn't anyone who wasn't trying their guts out. I can't remember us ever defending our line better than that. We looked absolutely fucked on occasions but noone dropped their head or slipped off half-arsed tackles, there were bodies piling in from all directions in desperation.

    Kudos to Cappy for finally using his 17th man, must feel like losing his virginity all over again.

    Also, Hayne was awesome for first game back after a couple of years out. Looked dangerous, played smart football, and produced 2 try saving moments combined with the bombs and short kick-offs etc. Would've been a bigger scoreline without him.

    proud of the boys efforts this week. We can finally have some faith in our defence. Now lets repeat this effort next week and stamp our mark in the finals!! I think Fusitua has made that centre spot his own too. Hopefully the positional swaps have ended for him. Still cant say i've seen enough from Lolohea to say he gets the five eighth position next year.

    Great try but he should've had the presence of mind to bring it round closer to the posts instead of going in for the swan dive, Manu tried to tell him but who cares he easily trumps Konnie for king of the village.
