That back 5 for the dragons is just about as bad as you will see in first grade.

I will be very disappointed if we don't win this game. Mind you, Widdop usually has a field day against us.
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

He is doing his best to play this year in the hope to impress and get a contract for 2017
He cant afford to keep missing game time BUT at the same time i dont think he is giving himself enough time to recover hence the re-injury

Massive catch 22 that doesnt look like ending in his favour sadly
I've been telling my mate who's a dragon that he won't see out the year but the rounds are running out. Definitely won't be there next season tho, so England's his only go I reckon.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

But is there any other club as stupid as us who signs injured players ?
Really, no brainer if someone signs him and he sits on the sideline the whole season.

At least in Aus Benji is still good for marketing, in England/UK not so sure

Agree,
2 pts will be good, improved f/a is a bonus.
Unfortunately our team isn't the smartest. I'm afraid they will think they just have to turn up to get the points ( as they usually do with the bottom teams ) and get flogged.

Should win and win well, but we are talking the Tigers and we are coming off a bye so anything over a one point win will be a bonus and I would not put stolen money on them, they have a history of turning a certain win into a loss.

Would actually like them to come out and put a real clinical 80 minutes together to bolster my optimism for the next month and a bit, but have not seen that for a long time

I couldn't agree more,it would be nice to win comfortably but as long as we are ahead when the final siren blows i will be happy.
Funny i was talking to a saints supporter the other day who laughed when i said i follow the WT,he didn't rate our team, and assumes Saints will win comfortably this round ,he then gave me the reasons why which is fair enough from a supporters point of view,what i found intriguing was how he then went on to tell me how saints won the comp in 05,losing all credibility i informed him the WT won in 05 and that i was also at the game while Saints actually won GF in 2010,the dumb puzzled look on his face was priceless as he stood corrected hopefully he will be wrong again this weekend. :lol:

You can't ever accuse a Saints fan of being intelligent ,when I think of Saints fans I think of Forrest Gump

You know that scene with Forrest's Mum and the headmaster :lol:

I'm getting more worried about this game by the minute

Just noticed that the Dragons have two milestone players( Marshall 250 and de Belin 100 ), been bagged out in an article

And God knows how we will react to the combination of the Farah furore and coming off the bye with a different dummy half

I suppose if we want to prove we are a genuine Top 8 side we need to be able to overcome these obstacles

Can the young fellas cope though ??

I'll get back to you with an answer at about 6.05 pm Sunday

All of my friends were Dragons supporters and I always copped heaps from them, I hate the Dragons with passion.
Go you mighty Tigers 60-0
