Time to move on and focus on Panthers
Well I could bask in the joy and glory of the Warriors rampage for a few more days, tears in the Souths dressing room and all but I think it is time to move on, forget about it and focus on the Panthers.
Lets not get too congratulatory - Roosters are on now on the same points as us (although having suffered consecutive losses and without a points deduction) and are tearing themselves apart over how badly they have performed this season. So lets keep a level head here - Warriors are still in a dire position table wise but the mathematical possibility of an eigth playoff spot - and a consequent playoff matchup with the rampant Storm is what I am clinging too.
And don't think that I do not recognise that the Warriors having won three in a row are on a positive upswing - this definitely bodes well for next year - although the loss of Webb will bite us in the butt in due course.
On a favourable note looking towards this weekends game Warriors are able to field a near full strength side minus Price who is playing Origin, Sam Rapira coming in as his replacment. Panthers on the other hand lose key skill players Craig Gower and Rhys Wesser.
