    Tragic 1st Grade Fringe

    Konnie was one of their best last week but still looked short of a trot, was blowing hard late at times so I think the plan to run at him is good as we know he will tire. Might not open him up until late in the halves but if we stick to it then the floodgates will open, let's see if that is part of the process.

    Like the idea of running at the Con-rad.

    Mentally fragile competitors are always looking for cheats out
    Of work.

    If you really want to fk with someone like Con artist there are many ways to skin that cat.

    I would avoid Isolating him in the opening Stanza....let him get comfortable ....let him build some false confidence.

    Phase two you roll out the Panza division and Run Gavet, Ken, Gavet, Ken straight at him (easy tackles....sort of....front on) add another layer of confidence and self congratulations while physically tiring him.

    Phase three you unleash SJ like last week versus Greg Ingliss.

    At that Juncture Konrad excuses himself for not being able to go laterally with Johnson ( who can)...and lastly you add in Tohu drawing and passing.

    Weak guys will let their egos walk them into that set up to fail.

    Just like South's off a high penalty count cracked.

    The Warriors themselves are notorious for false early confidence.

    Lastly when he scores a try go stand directly between him
    and the camera.....watch him stress without an audience.

    nah, you sap his confidence early. Kata is one player who doesn't want Konrad to get the better of him and will be all in to smash him in the first tackle. As soon as you show a mentally fragile competitor that its not going to be an easy road today they have to decide if they are going to dig in or just see the game through.

    Kata with a stomach bug in concerning since they've named Gelling as the only potential replacement - he got shown up big time by Konrad in the trials.

    Also run at Cartwright. His D was tragic last week.

    Also send Kata at Don. Try and bring back his memories of getting the fend of doom.

    I would be targeting there centers. And when Rein comes on the ruck.
    They have a pack to match ours potentially. I think there spine will be there undoing.
    Gordans past it , elgeys a ghost, ash is to inconsistent and erratic. Peats is a good defender but should only play 30-50. Reins a discount Granville with nowhere near as much skill.

    I love how most of our fans are so confidently predicting we should smash other teams after the Bunnies win.
    I've seen so many false dawns with the Warriors I could never be that bold. I don't wanna get my feelings hurt.

    That right edge is quite dangerous with proctor and Hurrell running off Taylor.

    Shame Mannering is out- usually makes a point of shutting down James.

    Harris to Centre, Hiku to 9?

    Not ideal but neither is carrying someone who will only get 10 minutes if he gets on at all.

    That is true, but the Titans are our Bunnies.

    Is it 12 from the last 13? or 13 from the last 14? either way our record against them is immaculate

    Stalefish540 6/7 away wins, who are these jokers??

    This game is actually a non negotiable win in terms of our season. With now until round 8 being so tough.

    Raiders away, Roosters away, Cowboys home, Broncos home, Dragons home, Storm away.

    Struggle street if we don't win this one and take momentum into the next run of games.

    Titans bench is pretty good.
    Glad the pommy joker Greenwoods not in the mix.
    Max King , Morgan Boyle are good honest hard workers.
    Boyle was up there in post contact meters after Fonua Blake
    Will Matthews has bone crunching defence .
    Going to be a great game.
    Don't know how long it will be for Paasi , but he will squeeze someone out no matter how good our team is running.

    I hear you brother, but this is a very different Warriors team to last season, just ask South Sydney. They were shocked at what they experienced and the Titan will be well aware Kearney was holding back.

    I reserve the right to ride all win streaks even when it's one in a row or even one consecutive victory.
