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).
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.
