  • Welcome Home Silly Farmer

    We've recalled the Farmer!

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2020/06/27/...rom-nz-return/

    Also read an article confirming 'ACL injuries' for Radley and Verrills, with the surgeon to start work on their recovery this Monday. Be interesting to know the grading (Radley could still walk so an optimist might wish for a grade 1 or simply a 'pull' or something, with him possibly returning some time this year... presumably not though).

    Be good to have Silly Farmer back! My understanding is that:
    - Butcher was out this week with broken ribs
    - Liu broke a rib on Friday night
    - Brett Morris can't sit down in meetings (back issues - seems to be managing them well + doing all the right prep though)
    - Eeerm... who plays #13? This will be interesting! Particularly with suspensions and injuries along the way. Butcher? SST? (I don't really have much insight into what the role involves when compared with the other forwards... I generally think of a big bopper like Liu filling it, but Radley can too)
    - Teddy, J-Moz and Butcher will be back next week

    IMO no need for panic at this stage as we're doing well and seem to have enough troops to fill all the gaps. Wouldn't want any more ACLs though! Is it just bad luck that we've had 3 this year or does coaching players to do a lot of stepping increase the risk? Be interesting to know if there's stuff we coulda done to protect our players better (forward thinking - not so I can blame the coaching).

    welcome back po.
    we're still a fair chance to do good things this year. other teams have/will have injuries.
    sammy's injury is bad cos he's a prospect, but you could argue that he's not in our top 17. so long as jake stays fit his absence is not a game changer.
    no doubt rads is a loss but butch and isaac are no slouches. also flanno might evolve a bit quicker than we'd planned.

      Great to have the farmer back.

      On another note I'm concerned the Warriors won't see out the season. Following the coach getting sacked and a few defeats I would imagine being away from home would becoming harder every day. Now with the Aus border force blocking many of their families from joining them here, It's another nail in the coffin.

      What happens to the comp if their players turn around and say it's enough? We are out???

        I dont think they'll bail out because none of them could earn the money they earn now if they return to NZ to a 9 to 5 job.
        With the Warriors having to relocate plus Melbourne it really isnt an even playing field & its another reason I will always have an atrix against the team that wins it this year even if its the Chooks.

          Agreed. My hope is that this unites them rather than dividing them.

          They're all on decent $$$. Doubt you'd give up $200k+ a year under the current climate. I remember being on about $65k a year (a junior job I only took on the basis that I'd get promoted in 6 months) then having a shyte of a time with no promotions for more than 5 years because there was a freeze on promotions and my personal life went to shyte. I COULD have quit and gone to live with mum. However, that was the best job opportunity I had at the time so I stayed. The place was rife with bullying and stuff too (being 'junior' due to outside factors I copped it big time from opportunistic bullies)... I imagine it was worse than earning $200k+ a year to lose a game of footy every week. My school's footy team lost just about every game I played from year 7 to 12... sometimes you're part of a shyte team. I'm sure it's not THAT hard getting paid $$$ compared with your mates to play sport full-time. If you can't handle losses, you're not a professional grade athlete.

            If men & women can go and do jobs in oil rigs out in the middle of rough oceans to put food in the table, then footy players should be able to do the thing they always dreamed of and put lots of food in their families table. As for changing their losers mentality they currently have, well they need a footy players whisperer OR like we did for the warriors in lending them Farmer, the storm should lend them a player. Maybe Cam Smith can help them out for the rest of the season. ;-)

              Speaking from experience, you either completely rupture your acl, or nothing at all. Totally different to medial ligaments. I'd say both Rads and Verrils are gone for the season.

                ACL'S are either partial or full tears - both are full tears - so season ending- don't know if Butcher had broken ribs though - Butcher will be lock and is a ball player like Radley although has been used as a ball runner since Radley is playing that role. Flanagan will have a bigger role one would say so Cronky needs to develop this role further(fast track). Sitili will step into Butchers ball runner role - when Liu comes back I figure he will part of the prop rotation ( JWH/SST/Collins/ Liu) - Second hooker is the one to sort out - sure Maubs can fill in but his role would be coming on for Cords/ Crighton - Freddy Lussick was mentioned - possibly Lam( a kind of Dan Mortimer) or they could go to the market meaning they will have to release a player to buy one. Poasa is supposedly coming back and may well in the 17 vs Storm.

                  3 Grades from stretch to snap. In footy a grade 3 is the most common but WAIT before saying you 'know' everything...

                    Welcome back Farmer. Please do your best to forget everything you learnt at The Warriors. I expect after your experience you will just relish your opportunity at our great club.

                      Drink some hand sanitizer and inject some disinfectant. Problem solved!

                        I'd like to see Egan Butcher debut if he's fit and ready.

                          Nat Butcher will rise to the occasion if he is medically fit.

                          A good solid player in a crowded pack.
