    that might have angered me a few weeks ago, but I fear it might be true. I think its good we have the bye this week. The players will show if they are together or not...

    Parramatta wont get the wooden spoon, its between manly and the sharks IMO, i still think warriors will make the 8, but they need to improve soon, next year will be a big year for them, they are loosing Seu Seu as well as the posibility of a few others.

    We're only 6 rounds in...there's still time for even Souths to lose the plot yet.

    I think the Warriors will miss out on the top 8 this season but even with their current problems they've still got world class players at that club that can at least help them avoid the wooden spoon.

    Mark Tookey can leave, I saw him at the supermarket the other week & he looks far too overweight.

    With all due respect to Souths, I don't think Ali would choose them.

    He's more likely to sign with Wigan. His manager Frank Endacott used to coach them & he'll probably be telling him to go to England & rake the $600,000 he's apparently been offered.

    Of course, money is really the only reason why he'd go to England. I think you'd find that generally most players would stay in the NRL if they weren't constantly shown dollar signs by English clubs.

    I reckon if Jones left the Warriors, he'd quit league. I honestly don't think he wants to play for any other club & I think the current angst against him by some people is uncalled for.

    The current Warriors side isn't that bad...last week they were in the match for 90% of the game.
    Lets not forget they've still got P.J Marsh, Lance Hohaia & Monty Betham to return..im certain they can avoid the wooden spoon.

    OK, I've heard from quite a reliable source that Ali's priorities were not right. He was asked if he wanted to win a premiership, and he said 'no', and that he only played for 'fun'. When your on 300K a year I don't know if you can afford to treat it like that. Maybe we are better off with out him. Somehow I doubt players like Jones and Toopi will be leaving. I also believe we can sort this shizzle out and get back to our winning ways.
