It took him a while to wrap his head around an extended NSW Cup stint, but now that he is back in the NRL, Warriors halfback Brett Seymour says that it is just the wake-up call he needed.

As the Warriors have had a rather indifferent start to the season, Seymour, along with other players were the first to feel the brunt of coach Ivan Cleary who did not hesitate to demote players to the NSW Cup.

In light of what is going to be a tough road trip to Melbourne to face the red-hot Storm, Seymour knows that he and his team-mates will have to lift their games and perform well.

“Off the back of three losses the coach had to make the decision to send me back but hopefully it’s just the wake-up call I needed and I’m looking forward to Monday night. No better challenge than Melbourne in Melbourne,” Seymour said.

“That’s the choice the coach has to make at times, it’s a tough job he’s got.

“We’ve got to wear it. It’s our job to play good on weekends.

“Him and the staff are doing their part so we’ve just got to repay the faith.”

After admitting that the Warriors have drifted away from their normal attacking style for the first part of the season, but they will be returning to the style of football that they know and love best.

“We’ve gone away from what we do well and that’s promote the footy,” said Seymour.

“We’ve just gone into our shell a bit and the more things got tough and the more mistakes we made the worse we got, so we’ve just got to play what’s in front of us and take what’s on offer.

“We’ll soon find out, won’t we come Monday night (how my confidence is). Up against Cooper he’s obviously playing some quality footy, him and Thursto (Johnathan Thurston) are pretty much the benchmark.

“A lot depends on which halves combination comes out on top on the weekend, hopefully we can challenge them.”
