Re: TOP 8 Next Year

Oh I forgot Liam. I like Liam at Lock. His defence is good but people shouldn't expect him to make heaps of meters from hitups. That's what the 2 front rowers and 2 second rowers are for. He can be used like a second five-eighth in attack. Our players should be running off him on both sides of him. Also, I get annoyed when he is used as a decoy runner.

We will have a good enough squad to make the eight but if players are played out of position and the wrong tactics are being used over and over again then it will be number 5 in a row not making the finals.

Somewhere between 9th and 11th. That's all that Supercoach has in him.
MOTH and proud.

Our Tigers are a tough team to predict. On our day we can and should beat almost anyone. 2010 is building better than the last few years thats for sure.

Who would have guesed we would lose 4 or so games by 2 points or less in 2009.

Mutts
Souths
Broncos
Melb

Heres not forgetting the brain snaps agains panthers, cows and GC where were in it until the last quarter.

For me it all depends on the "Rocks to Diamonds" comments and subsiquent actions by Coach Sheens.....

I will take 5th or 6th....

If we can get some consistency in 2010 I think we are definately a top 8 side but we've definately gotta win the close ones.

The salary cap is pulling this comp together,every year it gets tougher and tougher. On paper I think top five is a near certainty, but anything can happen, injuries and just plain bad luck play such a big part. I think their will be some teams from this years eight go backwards, Manly,Dragons and the coast and their will be teams like Souths and the Tigers who should be the big movers. Anyway the season cant come quick enough for me

Injuries tend to go around in cycles. The sharks had a retched run this year, as did we towards the back end of the rep season with lawrence, galloway, tuiaki, gallant all proving pretty hard to replace. Clubs identify that depth is required and they cover it for the next season. E.g. lawrence, tuiaki - daniella, brown. Galloway - cayless etc. I'm tipping this is how it'll end up

Dragons, Eels, Bulldogs, Tigers, Souths, Sharks, Panthers, Roosters.

Ha! All sydney teams!! Move the GF now!!

That finals series would be epic!!! There would be genuine interest in every game. Could see myself going to games involving and not involving the mighty tiges.

2. Eels- Will consolidate on their miracle run
3. Storm- Not loosing many players
4. Brisbane- Loosing Taylor is a blow, but they have a good pool of talent with a city of such large proportions... Might miss Hunt a bit as well
5. Tigers- really see us being premiership contenders next year... Us and Brisbane for 4 and 5 is a 50/50 call..............
6. Dogs- If anything happens to Kimmorley they are gone... personally i think they are pretty average
7. Manly- Filth will fall to 7th
8. Rabbitohs- A gun forward pack wins them some matches...

good analysis Syberian. i agree with the whole top eight except for the eels at 2nd. they'll finish somewhere in the eight, but doubt they can repeat last season's feets
With Wests in the finals, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE

Disaggree with you Alien

Daniela and Brown are reserve graders. Brown Is a Good young Utility,
Taumata has already been sacked from 4 clubs. Taumata - Rated very highly, off field issues
Cayless is injury prone, as is Topou. Benji was called Inury Prone aswell, Ability of both not in question
Fitzhenry 100% plus i question Liam Fulton coming back as well...

Yeah atleast Brown has some size but he could hardly make the sharks first grade side in 2009 and they were terrible.

Taumata I hope has a big year. I have no doubt he has the ability but I am a bit worried about what happens off the field. Hopefully our other players are a good influence on him.

I think Cayless and Topou will be very good for us if they stay uninjured. I think Topou could be like another Tuiaki for Wests on the other wing. I hope Cayless starts the match with Galloway in the frontrow, with Gibbs and Payten on the interchange.

I'm not sure why we signed Fitzy. We have enough wingers already. Maybe he is just a signing for balmain ryde eastwood. Fulton will be good for us if used the right way. We need his defense but he shouldn't be expected to make huge hitups, and shouldn't be used as a decoy runner all the time either!
