Although the Warriors' attack is starting to look a lot better (and Foran and Johnson have the makings of a great partnership), as long as they have these defensive lapses they won't be troubling the top half of the table. They only just managed to scrape past a Titans side way down on troops, and some of the tries they conceded were just embarrassing.
