On paper that is the weakest side we have fielded since 2003. I challange anyone to find me a weaker one. A slow backline, rookie halves, undersized backrow, rookie prop, rookie bench. Farah and Woods are the only 2 players that would make the starting side of a Top 8 team. It’s probably not since 2003 that I went into games thinking we need a miricle to beat our opponents. I feel that this week.
Ironically in 2003 we beat the Bulldogs at the Showground in probably the upset of the season. I remember in that game LIncoln Withers smashing Matt Utai in a tackle. Can’t really see it happening this time around but you never know. Sometimes tough times bring out the best in teams, nothing to lose attitude is one that is easy to play with.

Gee that’s an understatement Eddie; if Withers smashes Utai this time around I’ll walk backwards to Melbourne!
I remember we had a heap of players out in 2006 v the raiders at campbelltown. The one where Todd carney kicked a field goal in golden point to end our season. Anyone gather up that team?

The worst team I can think of was back in round 14, 2008. It wasn’t our backs that annoyed me it was our obviously undersized forward pack up against a massive Parramatta side.
Anyways, I think we can surprise them so long as our forwards don’t give up easy metres.
I dont know how you can say Farah and woods are our only decent players. You think any of the top four teams would knock back Koro or Fulton. I sure dont share your pesimism. We still have a reasonably strong spine despite the smashing weve had at the hands of the injury monster. I recon it will come down to who wants to win the most. In my view this game could be a lot closer than some people think.
We have probably offered weaker teams but not many weaker in the backline. Once again I just can’t many points in us.
As for the result I have no idea - the dogs have been woeful but could well show a flash of form against us… for sure Desi will be firing them up for this game, selling it to them as being a big opportunity, and he is right!
