The good players are very very good.

A few good players, yes, but overall a pretty poor team.
That team listed there will not make the finals.
So…if we really believe we are a top 8 team, we need to win.

They don’t have a prop on the bench. One lock, 2 second rowers and a hooker.

I really don’t understand how that roster is performing so badly. On paper it isn’t bad.

A lot better than I thought
If that team fires they will be a handful

I’m confident we’ll get them, they’ve got some good individuals but I think we’ve got more strike in us.

This game is going to come down to the battle of the packs. If Walters can provide good service our pack will roll through their middle easily which will give Brooks and Benji the space and opportunity to fire up our backline.
Kicking will also play a big factor. Lomax is suspect under the high ball and average at goal line scrambling.
If we can get that right we’ll win.

I’ve watched Trent Merryn carve us up many times. Hope those days are gone.
Better team than they are being given credit for. Quite strong pack. Good test first up.
6 through 12 are very good - very dangerous.
The rest are terrible.
Not as bad as I thought they’d put up considering they have injuries.

Lots of shaky hands at the back. Kick at Lomax and Ravalawa all night long. Very good forward pack but we beat that forward pack pretty easily last year, and our pack is better this year
McInnes is a big loss for them
Tough game at Wollongong but if we can hold their edge back rowers in Sims and Frizelle and get over the top of Paul Vaughan we will win this game. On paper they have 4 origin players and we have none. Tigers have the better side and better coach but the game is away from home .
I like our pack Mikalele, Musgrove, Twal, Aloai and our edge forwards Garner and Luch look strong. I think we are badly underrated this year.
