Black Ferns show a strong drive to win

Eastern Courier - - LOCALJOBS -

If the team had played the way they did on a chilly Sun­day at Mt Smart, per­haps the sea­son would not have been as dis­mal as it has been.

I’m sel­dom a critic of my team, which I love, but we let Manly back into it af­ter we snatched the lead with a few min­utes to go and War­riors coach Stephen Kear­ney ad­mit­ted we were our own worst en­emy as we fell to our eighth straight loss.

On the plus side, it was a coura­geous ef­fort and might give us con­fi­dence ahead of for our fi­nal NRL game of the year this week­end, against the Wests Tigers.

We had a fan­tas­tic day in my lounge, and it never fails to im­press me how com­mit­ted the fans re­main.

My lounge mem­bers and guests are my kind of peo­ple. They aren’t key­board war­riors who bag their side, and they aren’t ra­dio call­ers who do noth­ing but slate their own team.
