Warriors and Cowboys are not top 8 Bench Marks They are Monkeys


You have to beat the Gorillas to win a comp
But I answered your question, and removing a monkey from your back infers we cannot win without him, which is not factually correct big fella 😉. Gawd, I’m sounding like Technical Coach 😂

Thats fine and thank you for your reply

We all have different bench marks and my Benchmark is beating the big bad top of the table gorillas and not the meek bottom of the table Monkeys :)

I've always defended our whole team when people suggest we are a one man team. What can we say though? Tonight shows we are a one man group.

Edit: Aaaaannnd then they come out and have a cracking second half. Anyone got some pepper for the egg on my face here ? Hahah

Des said quite definitively that Tom will play next week in the presser. No “we’ll see how he progresses this week” etc, just “Tom will play next week”.

Rest him again next week boys & girls ? Yes or no ?
Why would we? It's not like he's played even half a season. If he's carrying an injury or even just a niggle, sure, rest him, but otherwise, we want our best team playing together in the run into the finals to solidify combinations and momentum

Yeah, he'd wanna bring him back in. It almost backfired horribly leaving him out tonight

Well this just confirms it, Kurt De Luis is out most valuable player.
