please refrain polluting real rugby league with names like st helens...its rubbish and pathetic

i watch super duper stupid league and im often amused of how silly your gameplay is....lame running lines towards non-existant defensive lines and then rediculous tries that come from set moves that were planned outta the players butt cracks...

please leave this thread and talk about the non-existant quality northern hemisphere have

he didnt play at all

Warriors upset Johns-less Newcastle
03 April 2006 

The Andrew Johns factor was underlined in triplicate as the Warriors took advantage of the champion playmaker's absence to scrape a nervy but deserved 26-22 victory over National Rugby League leaders on their first trip across the Tasman this season.


The absence of Johns, injured in a mid-week weight-lifting session, was acutely felt by the Knights, who went into the game not only topping the ladder but also leading the competition in points scored, tries, line breaks and offloads.

Warriors fullback Brent Webb made no attempt to downplay the significance of the Johns factor.

"Obviously he's an important part of their play," Webb said.

"When they go forward and he gets his running game going he is dangerous and can help them put on points. But we know everytime we come here (Energy Australia Stadium) that they are going to come out and play well.

"We knew we would have to play well to beat them and we are just glad to have got the win."

The win means the Warriors have now wiped out their four-point handicap, a penalty for breaching the salary cap last season.

"We were having a laugh about that in the changing room," Webb said.

"We know that our season really starts next week."

The offensive potency that saw the Knights open the season with three comfortable victories was on show as early as the fifth-minute when fringe Kiwis squad member George Carmont carved past Jerome Ropati and sent Johns' replacement, Todd Lowrie, striding away to score between the posts.

That try proved a false indicator as to how much Johns would be missed, however, with the Knights' halves creating little behind a dominant forward pack and their only kicking option, stand-off Kurt Gidley, having three consecutive kicks charged down by the astute Steven Price.

The first charge down saw Price come within a whisker of opening the scoring in just the second minute but the Warriors skipper was just overhauled by Knights fullback Milton Thaiday in a foot race to the loose ball.

AdvertisementAdvertisementIf the Knights were stilted in attack, the Warriors were equally as passive in defence, allowing the Knights' forwards to roll over the advantage line with minimal effort.

Eventually the visitors paid the price. Gidley finally got a kick away – a towering bomb – and Todd Byrne made a spectacular hash of it, fumbling the ball directly into Matthew Gidley's path for the simplest of finishes.

Down 0-10 after just 14 minutes, things looked bleak for the Warriors but they began their revival with a simple Tony Martin penalty goal before rocking the Knights with three tries in 15 minutes.

Evarn Tuimavave stormed over from close range to give the Warriors a desperately needed shot of confidence and Martin added the conversion to pull them within two.

Ropati, Clinton Toopi and Brent Webb then combined for the move of the match to send Manu Vatuvei racing down the touchline for a try that, once converted, gave the Warriors an unlikely 14-10 halftime lead.

Coming seconds before the break, Vatuvei's try was a bitter pill for the Knights to swallow and they were unable to recover during the interval. Just 90 seconds after the restart, Tuimavave stepped through the ragged Knights line and found Brent Webb and the fullback drew his opposite before sending the impressive Grant Rovelli over the try.

The Knights hit back through second rower Steve Simpson but Rovelli turned from finisher to creator with a left-foot grubber that deflected kindly for Nathan Fien to score and Martin's fifth goal once again stretched the Warriors' lead to 10.

Matthew Gidley grabbed his second, once again from brother Kurt's kick, ensuring the Warriors would endure a testing final quarter.

Ropati had the chance to seal the game but fumbled over the line after a weaving run and the Warriors were left thanking a try-saving tackle from Vatuvei on Brian Carney that preserved the victory.

warriors thread anyone?
wooden spoon thread u mean :p ? [/b]
hahaha the wooden spoon will belong to either the raiders or the rabbitohs


warriors are on 0 pts now..i found that a marvelous effort to come from being -4..and they have won quite well with new team,new players,new coahces and new management

a back to back victory and better individual performances have been most impressing and are pushing last years blunders aside...and last year had a more established team

as for raiders...they havent been the same since ya golden era days...and they lack the talent to prove that
:bravo:

truth hurts gun guy....peow peow

warriors got a good smash up...wooooooo boy see steve price get smashed back 5metres??? bwhahahaha

if there is any better mongrel on defence to have other than sonny bills shoulder charges..its kylie lueluai's onslaughts..i hope he gets the kiwi jersey this anzac test and bump heads with o'melee..that would be a classic

anyways.....the warriors f***d up and finishing was very very poor..suprisingly tony martin was the best player and that was the best game ive ever seen him play(all that super duper stupid league he learnt in the north is rubbing off now)..

gud 2nd half defensively but finishing was poor again..they botched 5tries in total..not good

i think the warriors can still take some heart out of this game...they created the chances...which is a good thing...but they stuffed it all up....they made stilly handling errors...which can be ironed out over the next few weeks...after that the warriors will be a pretty dangerous team to play against

Who thinks Gary Tupou deserves a Kiwi jumper come May? As long as Vainakolo isn't playing I'd think he'd be a certainty to start along with Utai.

Vainikolo has been rubbish all season anyway, he doesn't deserve any sort of call up.
