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

Huh... I can't see Newy beating Cronulla by 40 unless they tank to avoid the Storm..
If we lose, and theKnights win, we both finish on 16 points.
Best thing is for us to win.

Are you picking on this guy just for the sake of it Geo? What he is saying is correct - we lose and Knights win we finish equal last again! Equal last is last as far as I'm concerned, forget for and against. We need to win, simple!

It's pretty clear that a couple of fans don't support the Tigers and want to see us lose.

I can't remember when they had 2 x wooden spoons in a season.

Just like the team that comes equal 8th with a bad F/A - they are so happy to make the finals - oh wait.

As cq says - 2 teams finish on same points in 8th spot. Do they both go into the semi?

NO!!!!!

It is for and against - best F/A goes to 8th and into the semi, worst is 9th.

Same at the bottom - tie for 15th - best is 15 worst is 16.

Doesn't matter what you think GCT - you are incorrect. Always glass half empty with you.

Unless we get a flogging and the Knights pull off a hell of a upset the history books will have the Knights as the 2017 wooden spooners...and thats all what counts, its black and white and there is no grey

Interestingly, depending on results, we could be ranked as high as 12th on defence this season. We haven't copped a hiding since the Roosters in round 14.

I never mentioned the spoon, nor not wanting us to win. Just faced the fact that winning this week is the only way of gaurantee ing that we don't finish equal last.
There is plenty here that don't want to face that fact, as they didn't the last time we finished equal last, it's called clutching at straws.
Hopefully that won't occur but it's up to us to make sure of it. If we can't do that, then we deserve what we get
Then all the excuses that we usually come up with won't be needed

I hope we win ....It will be good for the Club,team,players, fans and Ivan....good luck WTs .....IF we end up with the spoon,who really cares,I look at the improvement within this team and club since Ivan was appointed and things can only get better the way we are progressing...
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Either way we will know what we need before we play, but we need to win regardless to springboard in to a good offseason

How is it clear? From what I read of his post it appears GCT would rather we win to make sure we avoid finishing equal last, rather than just relying on the Sharks beating Newcastle. How is that wanting to see the Tigers lose? This really isn't making any sense.

Agree. I don't see where the confusion for GCT post is coming from

Are people really worried about this?

We are facing the mighty Warriors, who have great attack, the highest completion rate in the comp and a Defense that makes ours look bulletproof!

Yes, they will show up and so will we. Our year has been horrible, but we have a stronger team now.

I reckon were going to kick NZ arse. Seriously they are going nowhere.

if you finish 15th you get a Plastic Spork. Not quite the spoon but enough to remind you how close you came.
