At the end of the day, does it really matter? Doesn't change the improvement we've seen the last few months. Regardless of what happens we'll head into the off season better placed than the Dogs and Titans. Recent form is what matters, and we have run rings around those 2 sides.
You base this predictions based on what?
What you read in the papers?
Titans are NRL backed. They will come back stronger.
Dogs have endless cash flow.

We might look good on paper next year but lots of crap can happen between now and 2018 rd 1.

Don't count your chickens before they hatch.
If somebody cannot see that we are going better than Dogs n Warriors (even before today) then they have rocks in their head, head up their blurter, or both. Painful either way.
I'm sad I quit watching at half time. I went swimming and checked the nrl.com and what a surprise.
I always miss the good games.

Sorry Ink I can't read your posts. I have had you on my ignore list for a while now. It's probably just a short baseless reply that's riding popular opinion like all your other posts
Quit quoting my posts, your wasting your precious seconds of life with those short retorts.
You debate nothing.
Nice to know Im so far under your skin you resort to this

Another fighting performance by the boys.
In fact it is probably just as good as a win at this time.

Newcastle got touched up by the Storm and we lost a close one so the for and against is well in our favour now with 2 games to go. I'm thinking Newcastle must win both and we must lose both now to get the wooden spoon.

We look a chance to win at least one of our last two. The cowboys as missing players everywhere and we play well against them. Warriors are a mess at the moment. I'm confident we will win at least one if no both.

We avoided the spoon by defeating Manly last week.

Yeah I reckon so and with their big loss tonight, I think Newcastle might have claimed it. Titans are a still a chance though, depending on results, but that will be a long shot.

We'll win our last two games and finish in front of Woodsy's new club.

Hopefully all 3 of Titans, Bulldogs and Warriors!

I really wish the Warriors had had a more recent win though before we face them. The longer the losing streak, the closer they are to getting a win and I don't want that win to be against us!

Warriors have shut up shop. They won't much motivation to come over here, last game of the year and win. They're just going though the motions.

We are still second most likely to collect it, but the more deserving teams (dogs, warriors and Titans) are in reach of both us and the knights. I hope we both overtake a couple of them.
Against the 5 teams in contention this season we are 3 wins and 1 loss this season, with a game left against the Warriors. If we got another crack at the Knights, Warriors and Bulldogs we'd walk away with 6 points, but unfortunately it's not to be. That said, if we beat Parra on Easter Monday and beat the Sharks away (two games we blew) we wouldn't even be in the conversation.

Yeah hopefully they will be thinking about their Mad Monday activities when they arrive to play :mrgreen: Just as long as we aren't doing the same!

I heard the Warriors vs Souths game.

The Warriors were completing every set, had great possession but at half time the score was 12-12.
They were as soft as butter and made our old defense look good. The rabbits had the ball twice and walked over twice. Unless Stephen Kearney actually works out how to coach the guys it will be the same story. Big attack in front and apple crumble in defense.

Steve Kearney couldn't coach an egg out of a chicken. Why the club appointed him is beyond me

Well let's hope that we can manage a win this weekend , or it could be a second equal last performance in three seasons. A finish that isn't very desirable

Wouldn't mind seeing us leap frog the Titans and actually finishing third last, but I'm probably hoping for too much.

Yes, that's the extent of our hopes. It is possible. If we can get to 7 wins then it's just an average bad year.
Need more props.

Huh... I can't see Newy beating Cronulla by 40 unless they tank to avoid the Storm..

Well technically they don't have to win by 40 if we get pumped by the Warriors.
