Just as long as the attitude is like the last. 2 games you can make a few changes but only if necessary. I do think we will be the complete team with a long term 6.

I worry about us getting cocky with this.

We got away with it once because no one was expecting it. Im not sure we can do it week in & week out.
We have put a pretty big target on our heads.
I'm not saying we shouldn't have done it, but it wont be so easy going forward.

That's true, we won't be underestimated again this season and every team for the next 23 rounds (and hopefully more) will lift in order to win unlike the souths who (i think) got a little complacent after their first try

I think Potter is a bit smarter than some give him credit for. We've seen a couple of slightly different playing styles the last couple of weeks and I wouldn't mind betting he'll tweak the approach for the Warriors pack too.

Re the OP, I know we are winning and I am not whinging about that but there is always improvements to be made and I tend to agree that going 'OK' is not really good enough and Anasta falls into this bracket. I really like the look of Austin but I am happy to let the coach play that out.

Lulia however, is a different kettle of fish and for mine he looked a bit out of his depth in the Bunnies game. That is a change I think could be made without upsetting the apple cart too much.

Rowdy is back this week Barra , so that might force a change

Will then come down to whether Simona passes the cognitive tests this week and is also able to play

I agree, I don't think bashing the Warriors is the way to beat them. I think we'll come out and try to play a fast paced game and run their forwards around the park, then look to open up a few gaps.

Yep no sence in banging a brickwall!

Mobile is the way to go against these boys... If there was a change to make, maybe Ava for Patto/Fine on the edges?

Wasn't there mention of Ava having an ankle injury? If he is carrying one I can understand the call for him to play against Souths for his size, but maybe best to rest him this week...

Liam Fulton, should be out for at least another week, for his own personal well being :pray:
would not be surprised if the NRL bring in a rule very soon, that if you get 2 head knock/concussion within a month of each other that you must have at least 3 to 4 weeks of not playing. :?:
yes I know there are rules to follow and may be given ok by medical staff, and can be over ruled by the CEO of the team you follow, but I think this may occur.
