We are currently sitting on 18 points the same amount we finished season 2017 on and with the likelihood of a few more wins we can consider that we have had a good year IC has a plan the foundations for which have been laid this year to build on next year and the year after lets be patient and enjoy what us to come remember its marathon not a sprint.
If the hospitals had as much patients (patience, little play on words there)as this Forum the beds would be empty.

Does it matter? even if we made it to the finals we would only be making up the numbers.
Yeah lets not bother...may as well go to Bali now... :roll:
I'm not saying give up. I want this team to play their best for every game. I'm just saying our best will not win a final should we make it there. We have too many positions made up of average joes. I'm looking forward to 2020 honestly.

Did everyone else notice how buggered virtually our whole team looked in the last 8 mins of the game against the Dragons?? Guys were on their knees everywhere and it wasn't a really fast game. It wasn't as though we had suffered on the wrong side of possession for the previous 70 mins of the game... what was going on there? We looked terribly unfit. I fear that this along with missing Lawrence's efforts might prove too much for us when we are facing teams that play the game at a higher tempo than we can maintain.

When we start losing the wrestle and our line speed drops off, we look very vulnerable in the middle. If we don't start putting guys on their backs teams like the rabbits will hammer us in the second half of games.

Our best will win a final. Our problem is not playing to our best, and giving away possession and field position through unforced errors.
Ifwe can regain our early season desire and form, Wests Tigers can beat any other team. With the additions of Farah and Mbye we should be very competitive, but we have to lose the unforced errors. If everyone stays fit, it is do-able.

I don't see the raiders getting to the finals without their captain and seizer.

Check their run home aswell...they only play teams in the 8 apart from us

Unless we win 5/6 games sadly we will probably finish 9th seeing as the raiders will likely only win about 2 games max

To make the 8 we have to get past Broncos (two wins ahead of us) and Warriors (3 wins).

Broncos have an easier draw from here than Wests Tigers and all the bottom 8 teams. Warriors have a less easy run but still easier than the bottom 8 sides.

Forget it. The top 8 is decided, except for the order within it. . No bottom 8 sides will make it. We're playing for pride.
Bottom 8

I don’t want to be negative but I don’t see the Tigers playing finals
We have to win every match from here on in to have a chance of playing finals
All those wins which we lost by 2 points are coming back to haunt us
GO THE TIGERS !!!!

Never say never , whilst there are points up for grabs we are still a slight chance
We beat the dragon , and lost lawrence during that game and he has been very good for us , but when he went off we still got home , if we can beat Souths and I think we will we are a big chance to sneak in , other teams like Parra , Canberra , Cows could upset a few in the 8 , I have not looked at who plays who but it can happen , we can start this weekend with an upset over Souths and once you start to get a couple of wins you go better , we also have Fanua to come back and he was just starting to fire prior to his injury ,

Our season relies on Farah and Marshall. If these 2 don't turn up, we won't go anywhere. The rest are gonna be as hot and cold as usual, but if Farah or Marshall go down we won't win anything.

The first step would be to never wear that Members jersey again. Every time we have worn it we have lost.
Ohh Stop it Tui :master:

I agree, frustratingly happens for majority of seasons. :deadhorse:
Yes once again, season 2018 is no different, more than likely will result in no top 8 finish. :brick:
