If this game had have been last week, we could have been in terrible trouble taking the Warriors too lightly after they got smashed by the Storm.

With the Warriors being last start winners, hopefully there'll be none of that this weekend.

But to be fair, the Raiders were terrible with the amount of errors they made and the Warriors weren't much better.

Even though we made too many against the Broncos, we should be able to fix that and capitalise on what the Warriors do.

Keep our minds on it and we should be too strong.

SJ returns to Shark Park (what fun!) and Reece Walsh is one to keep quiet. Other than that, I don't see many other dangers from them.

Even Jazz Tevaga has gone quiet.

Royce should have a sit down with Blayke and let him know what the code word is for when he has Reece picked out defending the try line.

If we don’t win this by 13+ we aren’t anywhere near where I thought we were. Should roll this mob very easily

Bort is basically saying that Reece is a speed hump while defending his line so we should be identifying and targeting our forwards to run over him.

Reece or Royce? I am so confused at the moment. Your statement suggests Reece Walsh, I think Bort is talking about Royce Hunt.

Could somebody please sort this out before I go mad?

Royce HUNT should have a sit down with Blayke BRAILEY and let him know what the code word is for when he (Royce HUNT) has Reece WALSH picked out defending the try line.
Should have gone with surnames haha
But basically yeah I think Hunt can crush Walsh into dust on the try line

Was thinking of the try where BHU steamrolled him and then had the celebration with Jack Williams.
But actually Reece Walsh wasn't defending the try line that one. We did steamroll him on the line with Nikora last year... the highlights of that game were a wild ride, do not recommend

All good mate, got you now. Totally agree with you on that - would be great to have Walsh isolated and big Royce running at him!

Whilst I agree Royce needs to target Reece, I also think Jessie needs to outplay Jesse and Wade needs to put pressure on Wayde.

Also, in my opinion Katoa can literally run rings around Katoa.

Have a feeling JC or Hazelton may get a go this week, Unless Tracey somehow comes back into Center but that’s pretty unlikely at best he comes off the bench for a week or 2.

Is Tracey expected to be back?

Are you thinking someone is out, or will get dropped for Calquhoun (any relation to guy who tore us up on weekend in lower grades?) or Hazelton?
Assuming Dale is fit we'd really be dropping players to get one of them into team, especially if Tracey already bumped Trindall.

Always hate playing Warriors - causes massive divides in my family.
In laws live in NZ and are stoic Warriors fans.

I’m dropping Tricky and Williams for Finucane and 1 of Hazelton, JC, Tracey ( no idea if he is due back )
I’d even go so far as to rest Tolman or say Wades pulled up stiff.
We need another Prop who can play decent quality minutes and have some impact at the moment we have Rudolph and Finucane that’s it, the rest of the squad all play low min high impact or low impact more minutes style props and we cant run a team with 3-4 of those in it 1-2 yes to fill rolls but it’s currently unbalanced.
