IT will be interesting to hear what the Warilla coaching staff focuses on come training this week following the club's 51-30 victory over Berry.
The Gorillas, in this Group Seven Rugby League first grade match at Berry Showground on Saturday, recorded a comfortable win.
However, there may be a few things, with the semi-final series just around the corner, that the Warilla coaching staff may not be overly pleased with.
The 20-minute period where Berry was the better of the two teams could be of concern for the visitors.
Warilla very much looked like a top-five side in the first half and thanks to some sharp attacking raids went into the halftime break with a 38-6 lead.
It took the visitors only 30 seconds of play to score the first try of the match when winger Curtis Stone scored the first of three tries for the match.
Warilla produced some outstanding attacking play in the first half and possibly went into the halftime break thinking they had the match in the bag.
However, the Magpies, in what was their last home game for the COVID-19 hampered 2020 season, were not going to give up without a fight.
The likes of back-rower Joe Roger and prop Bill Ryder helped their team take charge of the first 20-minutes of the second half.
Before the Gorillas knew what was going on, Berry had turned things around and the score was 38-24 and the Magpies were flying home.
The drinks break, midway in the second half, came at the right time for the Gorillas.
The mini-break gave the Gorillas the chance to compose themselves and get back to the successful playbook they used in the first half.
Berry coach, Jayson Smith, was pleased with the fight his team showed.
"It was pretty good and the boys really stepped up," coach Smith said about his team's effort in the second term.
"The boys had a really good dig, considering we were running low on troops and we had no subs to use."
Smith, in an unselfish move, indicated it might be time for a change.
"We are looking at a captain-coach for next year," he said.
He said he had enjoyed his two seasons with Berry as coach.
"I think they need a playing coach,"he added.
"I would love to stay in the job as coach, but I think they need a captain-coach."
Coach Smith said the club had the playing talent to succeed in the future.
All the Berry players tried hard and all deserved man of the match points for their efforts, but special mention goes to Ryder because not many props cross for three tries in the match.
Rugby league experts say to win a premiership you need class players in key positions and Warilla key players, half Blair Grant and hooker Sam Hooper were outstanding on Saturday.
