End of season mode

Well the Warriors are out of the playoffs after what can only be described as a stunning and humiliating collapse in Townsville.

The blog is of course pretty horribly out of date as I have just been away in France for a week watching the ABs demolish Italy and Portugal. Nice weather there too.

So to summarise the Warriors are out, the blog is out of date and I am back at work in London.

Its not cool.

I will update the blog though, just give me time, and if you are looking for a silver lining, look at it this way, Cleary Year II still ranks overall as one of the top five warriors seasons ever, and you have the rest of the RWC to look forward to.

Countdown to D-day

Well only 24 hours to go until the biggest game in recent Warriors history and not a single comment on the blog? Where are you Warriors fans?
Hope someone of you managed to get tix to the game - I love the quote from the Mad Butcher ("Butch") saying that he would "spit in the faces" of scalpers denying true fans the chance to attend the game. Hey mate why don't you show a bit of emotion - its almost like you don't care enough about the not.

Anyway I am pretty pumped up - both about the Warriors and that this is my last day at work for a week as we are flying out tonight to Marseilles for the All Blacks first RWC game vs Italy on Saturday.

A massive sporting weekend awaits, if I can watch the Warriors in Marseille tomorrow morning I will do so - should be 10.30am kickoff by my reckoning.
I hope all of you have a great weekend - get yourself a slab of lion red and enjoy the big games!
Go the Warrriors!

Booyaka - Into the TOP FOUR!!!

A win over the Panthers and the boys have done what I had thought was unthinkable only a month or two ago. The top four, it does not seem real. A new golden era awaits!

Anyway so now we look forward to a home semi next week. Who will the opponent be - I am trying to figure that out now but if you know already let me know - Broncoes or Eels if they win tomorrow I guess?
Stunning stuff I am excited! Hit me with your thoughts Warriors fans.

A big apology by the way to all those readers who may have noted my rather slack posting over the last couple of weeks, its hard to keep up with the blog sometimes but I will try and do better during this crucial time.
