With Souths winning tonight the team finds itself in 11th spot 1 point behind the rabbits and 2 points behind 8th. This win by the rabbits should ensure the boys really turn up to play next Monday night, especially if some of the results over the coming weekend go our way…If we beat Manly then I really rate our chances of sneaking into the eight…
The last bite of the cherry so to speak. No more second chances. A game that must be won. Lose and get out the calculator and pray on other results going Wests way. Win and the Tigers keep themselves very much alive in the hunt for Finals contention. 2009 is on the line. How badly does the team want it? Monday night will hold the answer.
Every game is must-win now. I think we could lose one game and still sneak in, but remember we have to play Bulldogs, Titans, Manly and Parra….all in pretty good form.
Fingers crossed we have actually turned the corner, but we have 3 wins vs teams in dire straits…Monday will be the acid test…
Souths are the least of our worries. They have an incredibly hard run in and almost certainly can’t make it.
Even though we can drop a match and still make it, I think the Manly game is ‘must win’. Too much pressure if we lose and every match becomes ‘sudden death’ as a golfer would say.
Last night’s result means nothing for Wests. The critical margin is the gap between Wests and the teams in the top 8 and top 4.
Sensational press this week regarding how Manly can win the comp after beating Newcastle. Facts are that our Flegg sides would have beaten Newcastle on Friday night.
as long as we beat parra cronulla and roosters we can drop 2 games against the dogs titans and manly.
if we beat manly ill be fairly confident we will scrape into 8th, the problem being over the last 3 years is that we dont win the games we should so IMO we can only afford one loss over the next 4 games, then probably have to beat either the dogs or titans to make it
some results in the coming weeks may assist wests-tigers.
if wests-tigers do not continue to win, they don’t deserve any chance of making the 8.
all wests-tigers need to do is concentrate on the game they play this week and win it.
exactly right. and the other games this round wont matter if we dont win ourselves
