Four point game / a literal 'must win'...

I know it gets thrown around a bit, but this week is literally a ‘must win’ game.

If you look at the ladder and draw, the top 6 teams will all very likely make it. The Bunnies have a tough run home, but Bennet and their back line = you would expect them to make it.

The team who really are vulnerable however are Newcastle. Badly injury hit and in a slump…but they have a pretty soft run home. Titans, Dogs, Warriors and Dragons all on their schedule. In all likelihood, they will limp into the top 8 with their run home ***

Currently…they are three clear of us.

After the game they will either 5 clear and there is no chance we catch them…especially with their draw compared to ours (ours is brutal).

OR

They will be 1 point ahead and, at the very least, close enough we can apply some pressure.

Four point game / must win.

Hopefully the players are up for it.

***Noting, of course, we lost to the Titans and Warriors and it would be helpful if Newcastle were to do so also.

it is so depressing every year we end up in this situation
we need Broncos to kick into gear and wun some games peg some teams back

They are the wild card for us…if they can beat Souths. Would have also been ‘very’ helpful if they could have held on v the Sharkies.

Noting, of course, that we have only ourselves to blame yet again (Titans / Warriors)

Cool, bonus points, so will be back in the eight with a win.

I think we’re more likely to beat Newcastle than the Dogs.

I hope we win, but from here on out it’s about seeing what this playing roster can offer. Keen to see young AJ have a crack, looking forward to seeing a repentant but fired up BJ, and intrigued as to how Brooks will go at 6. Hoping MBye can have a dig at 9, at least not be terrible, and interested to see who in the pack will stand up without Twal there. Aloiai looking at you.

No, we will be outside.

But 1 point outside rather than 3 (8th) and 5 points to 7th.

I dunno. Most years we are still optimistic at this stage.

Lucky for us the tigers are must win specialists!🙄

Every year you are right, we lose the games we should win and end up in this situation, the Titans and Warriors games are going to burn us as usual, we are still a mentally weak club

Honestly, at this stage I’d rather we be no hope of making the 8 three weeks out from season’s end than having to go through the same old crap of being on the cusp, having to win ‘must win’ games, which we inevitably lose and then waiting for other results to go our way - I’m over it.

we all have doctorates in Mathematics by now

Broncos & Warriors win this round we can move into 8 (of course assuming we win!). However I too am with others in finding this exhausting every year we are forced to rely on other teams in order to remain a chance.

Warriors V manly will be a stretch but I have some hope Brisbane can cause an upset on the Bunnies (who I believe are just stumbling through this season so far) Oh the joys of being a tigers fan…

Must win games and the Tigers aren’t a good combination
