    Embarrassing!!

    Our defence is terrible, 22 points is too much.

    Pretty much below the line!!

    some teams have a knack of snatching a victory from the jaws of defeat. some snatch a loss from the jaws of victory........ i feel like watching the warriors we defs try to lose it. but happy with the win for sure

    worried about injuries. more so for Mannering. our defence went to crap when he left

    That's not really entertainment just pure stress and resentment of your team for being so dumb and soft.

    Thanks for the game day updates boyz and girls. Way more colourful than NRL live updates.

    Sounds like Kearney's gonna have to kick some arses.

    Its such a relief to win the season opener.

    If we let Knights score 22 points, imagine how many the rest of the comp will score against us considering they have actual first grade calibre players playing for them.

    That was painful and embarrassing. 2 points is great, but this team is just so incredibly dumb.

    Why didn't Kearney have a replacement Hooker on the bench? Risky mistake that didn't pay off. And Maumalo was awful yet again, how'd he get a start?

    He ran 150 metres but otherwise he was a liability. That push on the head that led to the brawl could have drawn a penalty. The guy just doesn't have what it takes for first grade.

    We're going to get obliterated by the Storm. But hey, fuck it, we won... a round one game. That's basically a premiership for us.

    2 points and a win is fantastic. Well done the Warriors for getting there in the end. I saw some good signs of things to come
    But WOW we suck. Just lucky that Newcastle sucked even more

    I watched Trainspotting again last week. Being a Warriors fan is kind of like that. Pointless, unnecessary, and harmful to your health and sanity but we keep doing it year after year after year.

    But by God I'll take the win and revel in it for the week. Awesome first game

    i thought the knights ran and tackled hard. they had a great attitude and just like st george they chanced their arm,

    could you imagine if we had that same sort of attitude?

    Yeah - it was an awesome first game purely for the fact that the Warriors actually won a Round 1 game for the first time since ages ago.

    I pray that Simon Mannering and Isaac Luke are fit for next weekend.

    Ken Maumalo..........what can you say?

    Ken Maumalo can't make the team again. He is brain dead. That push at the end wouldn't of been far off earning the knights a penalty. That with all the other mistakes just makes him to dangerous to pick in the team.

    I would have Manu in next week
    Or Ashford at centre and Fus on the wing
    Or Allwood on the wing
    Or all 72 kg's, 38 years old and pretty slow now of me on the wing before I picked Maumalo again.

    You guys get the point
