Our review identified changes needed to be made and, in Stephen, we have a coach who has a reputation for demanding the highest standards.


Warriors lost to the Storm by 2, but not much to take out of it there weren't a lot of proper firstgraders to be found. Chanel Harris-Tavita played well, hope he gets the 6 over Nikorima who I'd much prefer as a 14.

Adam is a wonderful example of how a player should go about his business in the NRL

My preference would be to send Blake Green to the glue factory now and get Harris-Tavita and Nikorima playing together.

Don't forget Blair's albatross of a contract.

Of course the new regime continue to show they have no loving idea what they're doing. After Afoa did his ACL, they did the logical thing and let Lisone go to the Titans. Who needs front row depth anyway?

What? Really? That is bizarre.

edit: read up on it, apparently bad blood with Kearney for a while. He was dominant in u20s but never really amounted to much in first grade and had terrible discipline so oh well. Looks like we've upgraded Jamayne Taunoa-Brown to the top 30 and trying to sign Murchie from Canberra.

When was the last time this happened? Oh right, the whole Shaun Johnson fiasco which resulted in our 2019 season being torpedoed because Kearney got butthurt.

I would've preferred Johnson to stay but there's more to it than that. He is notoriously inconsistent and somewhat injury prone yet was demanding 1.1million+ per year. The club handled it badly but he was delusional about his worth so what are you gonna do? I don't see much point in forcing an unhappy player to stay at the club for a lame duck year.

Great World Club Challenge this year. St Helens could easily have taken it, just a couple of passes that didn't go to hand. Overall one of the higher-quality WCC games I think I've seen--certainly better than Saints' 2015 appearance.

Kalyn Pongaís contract allows him to swap to union should he want a tilt at making the All Blacks and play at the 2023 RWC.

He will be entering a congested area of the field though.

If he takes the upgrade, which he would be silly not to because it almost doubles his pay for the next few years

Iím happy they are approaching it smartly as if they tried to hem him in heíd probably want to look elsewhere

I'm not entirely surprised. After the initial media beat up going after a footy player and everything else came out she seemed a like a head case.
