I think we have any hopes of a top 4 finish its a game we need to win. Our next five: Souths, Canberra, Penrith, Manly, Canterbury.

Most would look at that and say, yeah we'll be in all those games but could likely only win one. Even then we'd be a shot at the 8 given how tight it is

W the storm and titans injuries I think they're a worse chance than us in making the 8 and I really think it's going to be a battle between those two, NZ, Parra and us for 7 and 8

I think you can throw Brisbane into group as well

Taking off my black and gold sunnies I think the Top 4 might be beyond us

I wouldn't right us off from 5th - 8th though

I reckon the Souths game will be a really tough assignment We won't catch them off guard a second time

In my opinion a lot will depend if Gavet is back or not and who pulls up fit

No chance Sirro will pass the cognitive tests with only 2 days available

Can't see why we can't pull the fur over the wabbits eyes.
They only beat sharks by 18 points,Dragqueens by 19, two underachieving team and broncos by 2.
They've lost same amount of games as us, 5.
We've got players, so have they.
I reckon we can do it! I'm putting $20 on it.

I believe we are a good chance to beat the bunnies. They are missing a lot of strike power in McQueen, Teo, Inglis and Dylan Walker. So that's there starting second rowers, fullback and there gun centre who has been scoring plenty of tries.

Yeah we don't have Woods and Farah but I reckon we are in with a good chance if we can dominate through the middle. The likes of Galloway, taupau, Ava, Gavet, Sue all need to rip in and we should be very competitive.

Probably a good thing we're missing a couple ourselves tbh. If we were full strength, theres always the chance that we'd take them lightly. I know the mentality of the side is different this yr, but that kind of complacency can affect any footy team. Because we're under manned theres no doubt they'll turn up ready for a tough battle.

In the past 3 teams required 28 points to play semi finals.

We are on 16 points and have one more bye to give us 18 point.

Need another 5 wins to make the semis (28 points)

Draw as follows;

Souths - need to win

Canberra - need to win

Penrith -

Manly

Bulldogs - need to win

Dragons - need to win

Storm - need to win

Cowboys

Roosters

Bulldogs

Too run home but if you want to play semi final football you need to compete with the best.

we're probably competing with broncos, eels, cowboys and warriors for the last 2 spots. broncos and eels have a very easy run home with versing raiders, dragons and warriors almost twice each.

rooster, rabbits, dogs, manly, penrith and storm are certainties imo.

Very much calculated. Only danger games I see are this weekend and the Roosters in round 25. I'm banking on a win this weekend starting a roll that manages to get us over the Roosters. The rest of the sides are either overrated (Dogs, Penrith), s*** (Raiders, Dragons), our b**** (Storm, Cowboys) or can't get a full team on the park (Manly).

We will be bottom of the eight at best, we will keep going at around 50% win loss ratio for the remainder of the season, but from next season we will be right up their with the guns
