i dont give them much chance. it is difficult to defeat team spirit. new zealand should be out - terrible performance last night - and melbourne couldnt beat newcastle in the second half. we will only defeat ourselves. sleep well people - sleep like they sleep - in belief. nothing can beat team spirit.
Thats my concern too. Taking it lightly. On this weeks performance….Yes we should win and they should lose, but that was this week! Which Warriors will turn up next week? I’m more concerned about this game than i am the Storm the week after should we win. I just hope the boys don’t let themselves down with a poor attitude this week. They have worked too hard, and we have felt some pain along the way too for it to be over on attitude. Besides…Gibbo aint ready to be a Shark just yet!
I don’t think the Tigers will forget in a hurry that the Warriors had them dead and buried at Mt Smart stadium earlier this year until Benji unleashed the fury and the Tigers stormed home. The Warriors have a good pack which can generate second phase play and they have a decent halves combo and a good fullback. They have a tendency to play off the cuff football which can be devastating when they are in form, but right now they look unstructured and down on confidence.
Enthusiasm and doing the simple things right will see the Tigers win this. The Tigers pack can match it with anyone at the moment and it’s just a case of replicating the second half against the Dragons - Hit them up the middle, draw the defence in and then look to go wide, keep the likes of Farah, Lui, Marshall and Moltzen trailing around the middle looking for offloads and most important of all, try and keep the defensive line straight.
Warriors will be a lot better. Wouldn’t surprise me if they jump us in this game early and we win in the last 20 minutes. There more then capable of winning. However, we are going better then them, and even if they do jump us, playing down in Sydney we will come home and get them. Pretty confident even though I think it will be pretty hairy for 60-65 minutes.
Sounds like alot of complacency here. We are more likely to take an understrength side for granted and get subsequently embarrassed. Mark my words, Vatuvei will be baying for blood next week.
We will need to be on our toes, it won’t be the walk in the park that it should be.

I’m sure the team will be much more composed than most of you lot on here. They really don’t need to do anything special against the Warriors. Just bash them up the middle and play smart footy. Repeat sets, kick early in the set to turn them around and keep the game down their end. They have a lot of errors in their game when they are under pressure (evident against Brisbane). My only concern is if Mateo gets a few offloads away (always seems to play well against us).
