I have a theory about the Warriors. I think they play a lot better when they aren't under scrutiny from their fans and the media.
Never has this been truer than over the last few weeks where the phenomenon that is Rugby World Cup has completely seized all available media real estate.
If I was Ivan Cleary my single biggest fear would not be that the players fail to turn up (they have proved that they will) but that the Media and the part time fans, owners and their entourage will turn up.
Yes they deserve our support but let’s allow them to do what they do best without the fanfare.
