I dont know about robbed but we certainly got called for penalties canberra werent and there have been 3 very 50/50 calls.

 

In saying that, they just arent completing the sets and getting over the line enough.

Well how do you some that up, thats how we usually lose not win.

 

What we did bad, penalties (although again the refs are ultra zealous on the offside), dropping the ball mid field, so posession and completions were terrible. we had 1 set in the first 10 minutes vs 10 for canberra in which they scored 2 tries.

 

how did we win it, defensively it was hit and miss, some real sensational defense but some real poor defense up the middle of the park. missed tackles show that.

 

i can only put it on hanging in their fitness wise and scoring a try with 2:45 to go and johnson kicking 2 field goals, 1 to level the game, 1 to win it.

 

We can win ugly, thats a good sign. Also aside from our first try, Canberra were really good on defense. Everything we through at them they seemed to have an answer for. Credit to them, they are a lot better side than there win loss record shows so far.

 

Now if we beat easts at home ill be shocked.

 

Kearney whilst will be pleased right now will be ripping into them post match analysis.

Pretty much a repeat of last weekend, except Canberra are a lot better team.

 

Kearney needs to get the team to stop over running the refs call. Offside is whats really costing us that first quarter of each game. I saw one in replay where our forward had his foot just ahead of the ref as the ball was cleared and it was called offside, thats how strict they are being on us. I say us not because I believe in ref conspiracies but 3 weeks in a row we have been on a massive end of the stick and the other team is clearly offside but only gets pinged late in the game. Either way. If we can not be pegged on our line for the first 15 minutes we will be 12 points better for it. And also not dropping the ball 30m out from our line. Back to last years posession stats like the first round. Although that Tevaga dropped ball when it was raked and he regathered was just another NRL quality decision, not.

 

Top of the Table currently :-) lol

Wow we got a hard next 10 weeks, 8/10 games top teams including roosters twice.

 

Sadly for Penrith Cleary their half back is out for 10 weeks, which is about origin time, I really thought hed be the blues half back.

 

Also I was hoping we would be playing Penrith in the next 10 weeks but we arent ugggggh. So I hope he gets well before origin or at least by game 2 for the Blues.

 

So this is our draw, playing expected top 8 teams twice the whole year and only 3 softer games. We are going to have to be good to make the 8 with this draw, which I guess will be the measure of just HOW good we are.

We were number 1 for a day haha, was going to screen grab it and doctor the round to 24.

 

ugggh, we have everyone in the top 8 twice this year (except replace Newc with Manly), hardest draw ive seen us get yet. but if you wanna be the best you have to beat the best. the storm last year didnt lose often even to the top 8. Aim high.

Warriors are like $4 for the win, Roosters hot favourites.

 

Johnson out and 2 debutants to start, with Lino playing 7.

 

Warriors still missing 2 of their best forwards, Mannering Papali'i and now Gavet out FRUCK a duck.

 

If the Warriors dont get pasted 48-10 or whatever it was last week like Newcastle and we finish within 10 points Ill be happy enough.

 

Will be our 3rd out of 4 games on the road so due a loss. Who knows though, Lino is more a tradtional half back and the team still has some classy players in the team.

Lol, im not a fan but working on it, retired many years ago! Roosters are apparently the go to pick for the comp. So, I will side with Teaman. I was going to say Teabag but this is not fair, so I won't. Re Prison Break!

 

As I type this, my go to NRL fan of fans texted and said its packed with internationals, so a good loss is a solid result.

It sounded meaner than it was intended I think. I just feel for the fans that the Warriors are so hard done by season after season. I hope they deliver.

Up 18:4 in 25 minutes with Johnson, Mannering, Papalii, Gavet.

 

Pretty impressive.

Haha no just a realist. Like any team losing 4 of their best players and their number one play maker in Johnson against a quality team away from home, you would be expecting us to be beaten. But at the moment we are steam rolling them with Lino replacing Johnson.
