Hmmm… When you look at it like that I think we just need to win 2/4 to get into the 8\. I think this draw shows why you cant write off Newcastle, they have a very winnable run in.

i think souths are gone now. Parra have a hard run home, so do brisbane.
I rekon we will beat the sharks and bulldogs. Unsure about bout titans and eels though, fingers crossed.

I don't think Souths are gone yet. If results are kind this week they could still sit 1 point outside the 8.

with the finals calculator I had the cut off as 28 points, plus a good f/a. Their are several games there which will be crucial in the top 8 race.

Some very interesting weeks ahead, looking at who plays who. The Panthers have probably the most interesting run home playing all teams hoping to fill the last few spots in the 8.

I did one with each game decided by the team highe on the table winning. We win against Cronulla and the Eels and make it into the 8\. Results have followed that pattern so far this round but I am definitely not relying on it.

i think every team has a hard run home.
remember none of the teams fighting it out are above 50% in win rate.

right now you can only expect the majority will win 2 of their last 4

It's always difficult when you have to rely on other team's results to to see where you finish.

We just have to focus on our game, one game at a time and if we are lucky, other results will go our way…

I think we have THE toughest run..

But Titans are quite beatable even at home and surely the Bulldogs will have their foot off the gas in the last round.

Cowboys are in; they will win two of those games and have good F and A.

Manly are not certainties to win more than one game so a win over the Sharks today by a big margin is essential.

if the dogs can not finish any better than 2nd and do not need to win to keep 2nd spot in the final round, i highly doubt they will come out 1000 miles an hour and risk injury.
i am always confident vs the dogs coz we have a good record against them n can beat them.
the teams vying for a top 8 finish are all playing vs eachother in the last 3 rounds. we are only playing eels. this means that some teams will cancel others out and therefore benefiting us.
i think the game we must win is vs parra. if we beat parra we are in. its all comes down to this game. if we lose then we need to win the next 2 to make it. if we win then we can still make it even if we lose the last 2.

Once we smash the Eels this weekend EVERY side in the top 8 will be scared to face the tigers!!!

yeah on the ladder predictor I have us winning this one and then losing the next too, we still finish on 6th spot.

Next week,
Dragons beat Broncos
Bulldogs beat Roosters
Cowboys beat Knights (just can't see the knights winning, even at home)
Bunnies beat Penrith (again, just a feeling)
Storm beat Eagles
Titans over the crap Sharks
Warriors v Raiders (who cares)
We beat Parra

R25
Dogs beat Warriors
Cowboys beat Broncos at home
Eels beat Panthers
Dragons over the Bunnies
Raiders beat Knights at home
Eagles beat Sharks
Storm beat Roosters
Titans beat us

R26
Broncos beat Raiders
Dragons beat Eels to secure minor premiership (although with their for and against, they may rest players, if Parra win that one, we're still in the 8 at 7th spot)
Panthers over the Knights (even if the Knights win, by this stage, makes no difference)
Cowboys beat the Roosters
Titans beat Eagles
Bunnies over the Sharks
Storm beat Warriors
Dogs beat us (although, same with the dragons, I can see them resting players too, with their for and against much better than the titans, they'll have 2nd spot all sewn up before this round regardless of the result unless we thrash them and titans thrash Eagles)

5th spot Cowboys on 30
6th spot us on 28
7th Eagles on 28
8th Broncos on 28
9th Bunnies 27
10th Panthers 27
11th Eels 27
12th Knights 24

the same people that are negative at the start of our run, is still negative…
why cant people just be positive? the boys are showing us that they can do it...
People who are positive have more chance of being successful,
People who are negative have more chance of taking prozac...
Try to be more positive!!!
We will beat Parra, Titans and the Dogs!!!
:laughing:
