We will get flogged no matter who is picked.
I'm once again thinking, should I renew my membership next year?
Stupid me, of course I will.

I wouldn't be so sure.
I saw a few teams struggle the round after Origin II.
It may be difficult for the Drags origin reps to re-focus... They could be a little off tap

Swap Garner for the "Wannabeast" and I think you are on the money.

I've got a good feeling about this game and I have no idea why.

But I think if we continue to try to play this defensive grinding type of football and think we're going to win by 2 points we'll continue to come undone.

We need to change the way we've been playing and start playing more attacking football right from the whistle.
We only seem to start playing football once the game gets away from us.

Probably more likely to get our 400th loss before our 200th win

I’m reasonably confident by this time next year we’ll have that 200th win.

Apparently Reynolds is injured again.

What a costly mistake he is already proving to be.
Given that he was injured after signing with WT, isn't it bad luck rather than a mistake? McQueen too?
Hopefully both will retire by 2019 if incapable of playing at their best.

It’s not the team that concerns me about it’s the balance.

* We need more minutes from Packer and Mats. Both are averaging under 100 metres per game this year (Rusty is around 75m). I think they are both about 50 minutes each as well. I feel that the bench does not offer enough in attack and their minutes should be limited.

* I am not sure why Benji stopped those towering bombs? Niggle perhaps? Hopefully the the rest will see him at full fitness. He will provide a creditable last tackle option for Brooks to keep defences guessing.

* The left edge with Rowdy is our go to but the right doesn’t have the same penetration. This needs to improve (not sure how we do this with the available cattle).

Even though we were beaten fairly easily by the Titans, I thought it was the most threatening and we made more linebreaks than we had in the previous three weeks. Our ball control was terrible but the signs were encouraging. Robbie and Moses were great for their first runsand our only going to get better.

I think we might just eat the Dragons this week.

Here's mine. This team will pile 9 tries+ against the dragons! We'll win by 50+ no joke:

1. Kylian Mbappe
2. Romelu Lukaku
3. Dele Alli
4. Ahmed Musa
5. Sadio Mane
6. Antoine Griezmann
7. Harry Kane
8. Adebayo Akinfenwa
9. Sergio Aguero
10. Cristian Rodriguez
11. Marouane Fellaini
12. Yerry Mina
13. Roman Torres

14. Givanildo Vieira de Sousa
15. George Elokobi
16. Antonio Valencia
17. Stanislav Cherchesov

No. 17 will smash the dragons forwards like a semi trailer through a red foam house!!!

Tigers are a good chance of winning this week as I'm not going to watch them.
