 nah we need to expect more from them, being loyal isnt the issue, the issue is expecting, no demanding performances and finishing the job. the warriors have the best team in the league by far. now have a great defense wrestling coach and an awesome fitness trainer in Wiki who they all respect. What they need is a coach they are afraid of, a coach who demands success or you are dropped. They should have chased Toovey while he is off contract and dumped mr magoo Cappy imo. Hes too complacent.

they dont have the best team, maybe on paper they do, if they did have the best team they would win

 

have you submitted your CV for the coaches job or are you just an armchair critic?

no troll, and you can have your opinion, but the best team on paper doesn't mean the best team in practice, teams also have bad days/games

yeah i know, and the opposition can have a blinder, but when you become the new sharks and choke every final, it gets passed having a bad day. its groundhog day.

 

in the final a lot of the players were just running the ball up like it was a 13 man game while guys on the wing were open screaming for the ball.

 

we have the perfect club this year bar one position, and hes a great bloke, but i reckon its out coach.

 

we need a coach who is not afraid to stand up to the big units and bark orders at them and get them moving when they are tired. toovey (a proven GF winner) with wiki as second in command would have done that and sorted our culture of switching off just when we need to switch on.

 

we played that final nothing like our previous game (which really was our only good game). the prior game we through the ball around hot potato but had structure with players running off others about to be tackled, and of course johnson magic and that wicked pass to the wing in the corner.

 

im just hurting as a hardcore warriors fan. of course i wont dump them. but its hard to watch the same ole. i think signing cappy to 2017 will come to bite us in the ....

We missed too many tackles and the players just looked tired in the final. I actually think our best player all tournament was Hoffman

bro a fair weather fan comes out when all is well. a real fan doest sit back and cop underperforming teams. the warriors are like the all blacks in ability, on the field performances like Welli ;-p.

 

im a conrad smith and nonu fan so i shouldnt give welli too much stick.

 

the players need to hear dissapointment from the fans. its too easy to just say loyal to the bitter end, but when you have a team like ours which is essentially superstar squad you expect them to have planned for the finals fatigue. too much hit ups and not enough touch/7s like play. and yes caused by fatigue, but thats not an exscuses they had a huge squad of overly talented players.
