The size of the Warriors forwards though once true is a bit of a myth now, generally used as one of the media's cliches they seem to have for all teams. Souths, Dogs, Raiders and Roosters are all way bigger than the Warriors as an example. : :deadhorse:

Thanks for that information watcher however I was focussing on this weeks game in the heat against the Warriors whom I believe are a larger team and may not adjust to the heat.

As well as the heat going for us, is warriors are favorites which now means they are expected to win and win comfortably. They normally don't do we win under pressure.

Pre the Dragons trial all us Warriors fans were really confident going into the Tigers game. Not so now. However that is a good thing and a kick in the pants often does a team good attitude wise. I reckon it will be typical early season game with mistakes and dubious options.

Hopefully we see a good game and both sets of supporters can be satisfied with their sides showing win or lose. All the best Tigs.

Yes but the correlation between the team named on Tuesday and the one that takes the field isn't an exact science especially as the season wears on and injuries and the like kick in.

The Warriors have one of the best backrows in the comp

Going to be crucial in the reduced interchange era

A lot of us think the key for the Warriors will be Luke, Hooker has been a problem area for years, Nathan Friend is a courageous little bloke but is pretty ineffective both sides of the ball. Losing Leuluei last year was up there with Johnson.

We have the potential, but potential means you haven't done anything.
I love the last sentence. So true. WT have a lot of potential too... :(

Don't know about genius, but the selections and game plan have been going well so far.

His allowing them to play what they see in front of them and what most have been crying out for .

Early Days , we all know we have the players to complement this style of footy and defensively ? full credit there only Try from a bomb and i could be wrong but feels like they have had the better run of the Penalty count.

Very proud at the moment .
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

TT, at half time I remembered a game early last year against Canberra when we led by a huge margin (I think it was something like 20 points) and still lost the match. Today our tackling was great in the first half but fell away in the second half when Warriors received more possession. Still we held on grimly in the last ten minutes to take home the points. The team will take a lot of confidence from this game. Whoever said there was no team spirit in this team is definitely wrong.

Understandable after a second half like today.
