Canberra are done and getting bagged from every man and his dog, this alone can produce a good effort from players.

We should win, but dammit I am concerned.

Reminds me of round 4 vs Warriors - they couldn't beat an egg but turned up against us.
KAPOW!

I'd like to see us put some big numbers on the board. Melbourne just very inconsiderately scored 46 points against Parramatta, which nudged us out of the 8 on F/A. We need to beat Canberra, not just because everyone else has (playing canberra is basically a bye week with a cold road trip), but also to match the Storm's effort and get ourselves back into the better half of the comp.

It is a game that we should win if we want to make the eight.
If we do win, we are in sight of a top 8 position...
We have alot of home games on the run home, Im starting to believe.....but if we lose this one, we are right back in the mix...

We haven't played great footy for 2 months.

I reckon it will be a high scoring, close game.

I think we are going backwards at the moment. Gone away from the 4 forwards on the bench which was belting teams. Picking 2 passengers that let the team down nearly every week.

I reckon we wil get away with a 2 point win, which will cover over the cracks.

The minute you start worrying about F & A and winning big you are in trouble

Get the 2 points first and if we play our best everything will take care of itself

Shoulda, woulda, coulda. I agree with King Sirro. Kiss of Death. We're already talking about how much we'll win by! Let's hope the team is taking a more measured approach.

The Tigers came out of the blocks this season full torque and full of self belief. That seems to have gone missing. We really need to regain that to progress as a team, independent of ladder position. We're a good team. We need to prove that this week. Then we need to prove it again next week. As Potter and Farah said several times through the early part of the season; We haven't achieved anything yet.

The Tigers IMO are ripe for a touch up and I think Canberra can give it to them... Not to confident ,the out come hopefully will be positive but watch out!

I think you have missed Happy's point there. Once you start thinking of trying to win big rather than just getting the win you aren't respecting the opposition.
And when you aren't respecting the opposition they come at you like a battalion and can pull your pants down.

Like Happy said if we turn up and play to our best the rest will look after itself.

thank you! i was thinking something similar, but you phrased it so much better than i could.

teams get thrashed all the time, but USUALLY (unless it's 1st versus last or 2nd last) they are somewhat difficult to predict. Even the best teams can get hammered by 20 or 30 points.

So like you said, get the 2 points every week and you'll find every so often they won't turn up and you can run up an extra 20 or 30 pts.

I don't see anything wrong with saying we SHOULD win. we just need to appreciate that this is not the same as saying we WILL win.

The only time a coach and his team should ever think of winning big is not until at least half time has been reached in a match. By that time if your team has been playing well and building up a lead you should be able to sense the opposition team's weaknesses and where you need to work harder to keep the roll getting. If it starts to work then you should increase the pressure and begin to start thinking of winning big.

We will win if the forwards get over the advantage line, play the ball quickly and create space for Brooks, Tedesco and Simona.
