We're only 5 games into the season. While it is great where we are right now, there are so many more games still to come. Teams have got off to great starts in the past and fallen over, including us!

2000 - Wests Tigers 3-1-1, finished 10th
2005 - Raiders 4-0-0 (1 bye), finished 14th
2006 - Cowboys 5-0-0, finished 9th
2008 - Titans 4-0-1, finished 13th
2015 - Knights 4-0-1, finished 16th
2017 - Dragons 4-0-1, finished 9th

Of course, there are many more teams that have gone on to the finals, but let's not get ahead of ourselves!
I've been a member since 2012. We last played finals football in 2011. Just saying...

Having had a listen to the video he goes on about us missing Packer and how we dont have the depth to cover that.

Sue, Felise, Twal, Eiso, Aloia and Grant are a hell of a lot better than Ava.

Think we got this Gal...
Its an opinion!

It's Packers leadership and presence on the field that none of those players can replicate. Hopefully Reynolds can tho.

Who replaces Gallen at the Sharks when he is out?

Its just Cronulla rubbish trying to say they have some sort of better depth than us.

The sharks first 40 minutes against the Tigers was the best 40 minutes the sharks have played this year after the had a shocker against Manly the week before and they had 95 percent completion in the first half against a team with so many new players if they can not put in the regular season who cares about a trial and Parramatta had the best trial form of all teams this year they where amazing in the trials

Channel 9 have the worst recruitment. I'm not sure where their head is at.

Foxsports are going to crush them if they keep hiring people like Gallen. Most of 9's commentary team is utterly arrogant and/or negative. They really are tiring to listen to.

Foxsports are killing it with people like Ennis, Sampson, Hooper, Ikin, M Johns... If they just could get rid of Gordie and Blocker, they would be flying.

They give the nod to washed up ex-players over professionals who can actually articulate an unbiased opinion. Fox have a better mix, and the ex-players they choose seem to be a lot more level headed.

Add Anasta to the list with Gordie and Blocker..

If he's worried about teams that might struggle with no depth he should have a look at the Warriors and their reserve grade side - who got lapped by our reserves last week.

Pfft, hardly anything to get your knickers in a knot over. He was actually quite complimentary using words like "impeccable" to describe our efforts and defence. He's entitled to his opinion like everyone else. The way our side is playing is very energy sapping and it will be a true test for them to maintain it for 26 rounds. Like he said, enjoy the ride, i know i am.

It's just laughable saying we have no depth when our ISP team is top of the table.

Personally I don’t think much of Gallen but he’s entitled to his opinion. Like the other post about Channel 9 recruitment I also don’t get where they’re heading with their panelists on both The Footy Show and 100% footy.
As far as where we’ll finish I’m hopeful we will make it into the finals as our depth seems very good. It will be interesting to see how we fair with no Packer this weekend. The great thing is with competition for spots there should be no complacency when someone gets the nod for NRL.

Agree completely. Gus is getting more arrogant by the day, won't listen to anything that doesn't come out of his own mouth. He's gone well beyond his used by date.

Since when did this Grub be the beacon of all social commentary in the NRL???
Do people remember the disgraceful things he used to do on the pitch when he was younger??
