Big test this week but hopefully the boys are up to the challenge.

Well the Tigers have certainly found some form of late - they pumped the top 4 Panthers 34-6 and now move to 8th position while the Panthers slip to 7th. Another tough test next week against the Knights who sit 5th but we did beat them earlier this season.

@willow Good to hear. The team seem to be getting its act together at the right end of the season. Perhaps few boys ready for CC next year.

Good to see them get another win. A bit of stability in the lineup has helped them a lot. Missing Smith, Burey, Fenn and Jankovic too.
A double to Dillon, and tries to Cini, Lee Silva, Scolari and Ngati ends up with a 34-6 win. 4 in a row now and our destiny in our own hands.

Scolari always gets his name on the try scoring sheet. Good for Dillon and hope to see a few of the backs pushing for high grades.

I wonder if they’ve been told there are FG opportunities in 2020 for those who stand out. I hope so because despite the obvious quality gap, at least the team seems to have speed.

@balmain-boy Yes a great win. Realistically we need to win the last 2 games which would get rid of Warriors (behind us) but if Dragons win both we are most likely to be behind on for and against. Saints play Warriors so a win next week to the Warriors would be good. Dragons play Raiders in the last round who are hot and cold.
Panthers should beat Bears so that would put them beyond us. Raiders will most likely beat Manly next week so if that happens we can’t catch them.
Knights however play Rabbitohs and then the Sharks so if they lost both and we win both we would jump ahead of them.
So - we need to make sure we beat Melbourne first! If we do we are still in with a good shot but still need a bit of luck even if we beat Warriors in Auckland.
Anything is possible in this competition but funnily enough the Tigers and Dragons have all the momentum and yet are both scrambling to make the 8!
