    If you regard test football as elite, which I do, he played very well behind a dominant pack with SJ on the other side. In the last few seasons he has been living on reputation because he has had other things on his mind, then he came here so he was on a hiding to nothing, now he is off to the Bulldogs...go figureo_O

    He is behind a pussy pack, he isn't that bad and he has a decent kicking game close top the line.

    When they have go forward the move the ball, which hasn't been very often, so that isn't Kearney, it is a powderpuff pack signed on potential. Hey Iro, who buys a new car on potential?:rolleyes:

    They won't be too worried, he cannot take their two and three year contracts off them.

    Starting right at the very top, business management 101...and you can include EW in that because he is a franchisee...think about it.

    Can't say I'm surprised with the result. The Knights have been pretty solid lately and we went in with a forward pack that's both small and inexperienced (pretty sure Mutts is the only player we had out there who weighs over 105kg).

    On the bright side we got our first clear interview all season. Sounds like Kearney's fully aware that the players haven't been up to scratch and that some might need to be moved on. He also spoke about the need to rebuild the club from the ground up and that they're still feeling the effects after a few lean years under a few bad coaches (mostly mclennan).

    If we can't clean out this roster I'd say we'll just get more of the same.

    Bluey's biggest mistake was that he went in under resourced. He wasn't as bad a coach as Elliott.

    So the Warriors capitulated to the Knights. Well done Knights for sure. Was that a big fuck you and wot to the Coach from the busted out players as well? Maybe.

    I would never suggest he was elite, he is up there the quality ones though. Those last few years at manly there was clear problems going on there he didn't agree with. He started fresh at the eels and was the form half of the comp, unfortunately got injured and it all went to ruins from there. If we ever thought we were gonna get Kieran Foran at top flight, then that was pretty naive given the circumstances.

    They would have no right to. Most of them aren't even first grade players, even though they might be on first grade contracts. Memo to Iro, put reserve graders on reserve grade contracts.

    How exactly am i taking the piss. We're not a underdog team? We don't need forwards? We don't get burned by refs? We don't need experience? Our 2, potentially 3, signings won't help? What exactly out of those points are funny?

    I'm pretty sure there was more irony in that post than observation.

    Serious question here, was the starting forward pack yesterday the smallest ever in the Warriors history? I honestly can't remember a smaller one taking the field, it was tiny.

    Yeah we seem to be getting smaller & carry 3 hookers?

    Wtf is SK doing? Even his loyal followers - probably just u Bruce, you have to start wondering...

    Best forward was the smallest guy on the field. Roache. More heart passion and energy that all those meat packs put together.

    The Bronco's forward pack isn't big, perhaps SKs going for a more mobile pack like he was working with there? Shit plan really.

    Has Kearney always been into the synthetics or is this just a phase....

    Bro, I fucking flushed something that looks more potent than Luke just this morning. All jokes aside though, Roaches needs to be our main hooker.
