Pickin's after round 23 

The Rabbitohs beat the Sea Eagles. Fair to say neither of the resident tipsters saw that one coming, although we all knew it would be a tightly contested match-up. On the one hand this makes things even tighter for the Warriors with yet another team (the Rabbitohs) in contention for the top 8. On the other, perhaps morale will be down at Manly, and we can give them an old-fashioned hiding next weekend. That would partly make up for the very damaging loss at Canberra.

Here's some commentary from a learned colleague at sportsfreak:
Yet another lead blown against mediocre opposition. 10 point lead v the Raiders, 10 point lead v the Knights, 8 point lead v the Rabbitohs (luckily got out of jail), 12 point lead v the Roosters, 8 point lead v the Sharks, 2 point lead v the Melbourne reserve grade team.

I reckon their confidence would have taken a MASSIVE dent and we will be very lucky to beat the Sea Eagles next week and avoid heading off to the Panthers with our season on the line.

Some interesting stats for you all

Warriors 90 tries

51 in the first half and 39 in the second half.

Against 72 tries

32 in the first half and 40 in the second half.

Our wins have been by 16, 10, 20, 2, 10, 40, 18, 28, 12, 40, and 24 so only one win all season by less than 10 points. Our losses have been by 18, 3, 2, 6, 4, 24, 20, 2, 6 and 2. So that's seven losses by less than 10 points. We should form a choking club with the Sharks.

Anyway, if Manly had won I would be back over 60% success in tipping.

Yamis 94 correct out of 152 picks = 61.8%

DC_Red 50 correct out of 84 picks = 59.5%

Bennyasena 65 correct out of 114 picks = 57% (retired)

Isn’t it about now that Randomanity should turn up with his Warriors review piece?

I used to enjoy those.

I can't believe that weekend.

I get scuppered by the Warriors capitulating in the last ten, the Sea Eagles doing the same from 12 up and Sharks blowing it v the Tigers to lose by a point.

Those were three awful results for the Warriors that might have shat on their season.
The loss at home to my "B" team scuppered the Warriors.
