    We could hammer the warriors if they stay on the bus, or if they get off the bus we could be in for a long day.

    Im going with a 34-14 win

    First time this year I'm confident of a win. Warriors have been awful. I just smell back-to-back... hopefully.

    Are you "hopefully confident" or "confidently hopeful"

    Hello from the Warriors. First off well done against the Dragons. No more than what your club has deserved. You guys have done it tough these last years and you guys deserve to shout yourselves for how you have handled it as a club. Newcastle have been a great club and with supporters like you will no doubt be great again.

    As for us Warriors fans, disappointment is a receding image in the rear view mirror and has been replaced by anger. With the roster we have our place on the ladder is unacceptable. Generally there is a feeling some of our players are there for the pay cheque, winning doesn't seem a priority. he club is in no doubt about fan feelings.

    I actually give you guys the favourites tag this week. (A poisoned chalice for either club I know) I just hope we get a good game. Oh well, there's always the All Blacks.

    Another top post mate :thumbsup:

    I feel for the Warriors fans, the past decade has been a huge fail in so many ways.

    Should be a top 4 side pretty much every season yet for 1-27 reasons they stumble to get off the ground and amount to any great hights.

    Can the bookies give out even betting?.neither team holds the favourites tag well.

    Is it weird that I have been waiting for this post? Always like to see another opinion thrown around. As for the warriors they worry me to so many extremes but watching them play makes me feel better. I dunno what is it about that team but you as fans must be just about fed up with their lacklustre performances.

    Well said mate. Because I don't care about Union I hope the All Blacks hammer the Wallabies again for your sake.

    Very much so, this year is different though in that they had all the advantages with them, all excuses had been resourced and recruited away from them. They had it all and only had to bring the effort and will, like you Aussies we can cop a loss as long as our team is having a real dig. A lot of fans are voting with their feet. In my view they don't lack ability, they lack character. Not all I hasten to add, but a significant number.
