Manila Preparation & Injury Update

NewsWarriors Players and Supporters:

Warriors have been dealt another injury blow ahead of the Manila Cup with news that Ben “Eggs” Simpson will miss the next six weeks with a ligament tear in his knee; The President of the Warriors confirmed the injury today ahead of the club's main training session this Saturday at Pedang Merbok.

This compounds the Warriors injury woes and preparation for the Manila Cup Title defense with Key Midfielders Clint Watts, Adam Kaminski and Ruckman Josh Welsh also sustained injuries during the weekends defeat by the Singapore Wombats and draw with the Cambodian Eagles.

With the emphasis at training this week focusing on The Warriors conceding losses in the past three weeks, it is not just an issue for the back six the whole team needed to lift their defensive efforts. This will be reflected on the track Saturday and focus will be on full ground defense that will be the difference between winning and losing games in the future.

Our primary focus is for the team to sticking together over the next 3 weeks and training hard, it’s about the team working together as one and really pushing that.

JUST like a counterpunching boxer the Warriors need to absorb the pressure before landing a few blows of their own against the opposition in Manila.

All Players & Supporters ensure you make your way down to training this weekend and get onboard for our build up to the title defense of the Manila Cup.

*Note* If you are injured please come down and support, turn a snagger and crack a tiger.

Warriors defeat Orang Eire - Saturday 9th March

Match ReportsThe eagerly awaited opener between the Warriors and the Orang Eire was always going to be a tough one. Smarting from the drubbings of the previous year, the Irish had put in another solid pre-season and posed a genuine threat. In bright, sunny conditions, the Warriors put those ambitions to sleep. A.Kaminsky and J.Sinclair’s one-two opening punch saw the latter score an over while Sinclair made a tackle shortly after that K.Stocks pounced on for the first under of the match. S.Lawson, the badgering midfielder, led the next attack and shuffled a handball to the running Buma who also posted an over. And minutes later, after a desperate attempt by the Irish, the Warriors defence fed Buma again whose perfect pass found J.Flanagan at centre-half forward. Sadly, he pulled it to the right for a behind. An Irish counter-attack got as far as a half-back and it was P.McCalman and S.Di Grigorio who thwarted two attempts, saw the ball to the midfielders, who provided young debutant C.Kilpatrick with a brilliant low finish for another over. The Irish appeared as ineffective as an ashtray on Andy Lee’s Harley until a rare foray forward allowed them to sneak an unlucky under. P.Woods was taking big marks up at half-forward and helped Prez B.Simpson to a valuable over as the Irish replied with a measley point. J.Mosel, busy at the back, produced a fine pass for Kaminsky who steered an over through. S.Job and Simpson were combining well with M.Coombes to give Flanagan another set shot from the pocket. Uncharacteristically, the skipper pulled it left again. Points were exchanged after that but midfield stalemate was broken by the call for the first break.

First Quarter Warriors: 2.4.3.27 to Orang Eire 1.0.2.8

Match Report: Warriors Vs Tigers (23-Feb-2013)

Match ReportsWritten by Michael D'Oliveiro

After a heady 2012, a few would have thought the mighty Warriors would have had a hangover to recover from. From the opening bounce, it might have seemed the case. The Thailand Tigers showed their renowned spirit and vigour in midfield, getting to the ball first on several occasions. After Jason Flanagan narrowly missed his early set shot, the Thais forced a turnover and the free kick against Mitch Booker brought a fine running goal from the Tigers. This seemed to sting the Warriors into action and Booker himself, who marked and kicked a long-range effort that was smartly shepherded through. Full-forward Marcus Coombes followed that up with a fine long bomb before a spell of aerial ping-pong began. The Thais forwards were desperate in their attacks but Jason Mosel took a courageous mark and teamed up well with Corey in half-back. The latter sprinted gazelle-like to land another bomb and split the sticks. Midfielders Barry Hall, Stuart Job and Clint provided more drive and the Warriors would have scored more if it wasn’t the effort of a certain bald Thai back pocket who kept clearing the pill with his driving right-footers. Veteran Paul McCalman put in a sterling effort in half-back again while James Drummond and Mosel combined superbly like a just-married couple. Flanagan, Coombes and Adam Kaminsky added the minor points as the Warriors went into the early break ahead.

Warriors 3.1.19 to Tigers 1.0.6 and in front by 13 points.



A open letter in response to the alleged racism and abuse suffered by Chinese Aussie rules players

NewsWritten by Jon Hopper
President The Guangzhou Scorpions Australian Rules Football Club

As president of The Guangzhou Scorpions Australian Rules Football Club, the hosts of the Australia Day Aussie Rules carnival that is at the centre of this alleged incident I feel compelled to respond to the comments made and correct the inaccuracies in the recent Herald Sun / news.com.au article "Chinese Aussie rules players suffer abuse, racism" as well as the subsequent dialogue that has ensued across various social networking platforms.

Firstly and most importantly there was absolutely no abuse or racism of any player, official or spectator during the days events and the assertions being made are completely inaccurate. The video clip that is at the centre of the issue shows a Guangzhou Scorpions player on the receiving end of some pretty serious sledging from an unseen spectator, it would be fair to say that the language used is profane and would be deemed inappropriate by many. However the word heard on the vision audio is "fat" and it is clearly being directed at a specific player, with his guernsey number being called out several times during the clip. The comment was in no way racist and most importantly in the context of these discussions was certainly not directed at a Chinese player, as is being suggested.
