Let's put this into perspective.

Even though I can't stand the Tigers losing it's a good thing and let me explain before jumping down my throat......

If the Tigers keep winning right now and stay undefeated there will come a time when they will have to lose, personally, as hard as it is to swallow (watch the Tigers lose) I would like them to win 3 games and lose 1 game (to keep them grounded) till rounds 16-18 and than build steam by winning 4-5 games in a row heading towards the finals. If they peak too early we will have a Dragons of last year situation on our hands and not make the finals. Now to me that is not acceptable, I don't want to make the finals just to be there, I want the premiership.
Hope you've told Cleary what is expected of him and the team this year.

This should be the priority. If we do this we will be playing finals footy.

The team needs to take a lesson out of a loss and show some resilience to bounce back.

well we managed to let them score about 3 trys (almost 4 trys) in about 5 mins last time. and tried to blow a 30-6 lead, and now they are coming off flogging manly (which we did as well) which Shows Manly just SUCK and have internal issues.

so I have no confidence at all at beating them. I do however know I have confidence for beating the warriors because we will show up against the big teams and not show up against the crap out of the top 8 teams. its bean this franchise mentally for 18 years. I mean the friggin knights cost us the 8 in 2004 and 2008 I think it was. we always have issues against them, I think 04 was the big old CHOKE a 10 point lead with 10 to go and miss out on the 8 if I remember I can't remember the wingers name but we just watched him score.

Terrible time for us to play Parra after a win like that.
Norman and Moses both confidence players and really hit their straps last week.
Gutherson at the back makes an enormous difference. Thought they were due for a win, but after our ordinary performance last week
we will really need to lift to contain them.

Welcome to the NRL - no game is easy. Each week presents a whole range of hurdles and opportunities. The question our boys will need to answer is how do they regroup and lift their attitude and effort. The scrambling defence and energy that was winning us games early has been slowly weakening over the last few weeks. We need to be up for a battle this week because I am sure the Eels will be.

In 1990, a loss in the 2nd last week to Sterlo's Eels cost us a go at top spot, and a loss in the final week vs Knights meant we had to play a play-off against Knights again a few days later to officially claim 5th spot.

Knights have been a bogey team for a long while now...

They'll have their tails up but a good dose of old school defence might seem them fold again, that confidence is sure to still be fragile... Gutherson on the other hand will make a difference.

Manly were terrible.

I reckon it's better they won, they would have been still desperate for their first win.

Not hard for the halves to look good in a game like that.
