A Bunch of Questions

Here at NRL Warrior HQ, I’m a little too frustrated to come up with an interesting anecdote this week, too downcast to wade through the darkness in search of a glimmer of sunshine. So, instead, I’ve decided to change things up: it’s question time.

In an ideal world, I’d like to ask a bunch of questions and have them answered immediately, but, since I couldn’t find an SP Kearney in the White Pages, you’ll have to picture an imposing man nodding his head slowly with his arms crossed while you read the questions and then use your imagination to come up with the answers. Full disclosure — I have so many questions about this season, recent events and the future, I decided to stick with the Set of Six format, focused largely around Friday night against Souths, mainly because I think it’s about all any of us can take right now.

Just the thought of the uncomfortable yellow seat I’ll call my own in 2016 sends a little shiver up the spine, brings a few goosebumps to the arms.

It feels great to be heading home.

Melbourne Error-a-thon

This is definitely the toughest review of the year so far. It’s made me feel very sorry for Andrew McFadden and the rest of the coaching staff for having to sit through that footage again. I really hope that’s the last time this season any of us need to watch a performance like that. Storm v Warriors, usually one of the best games on the calendar, turned into an absolute flop.
