Just cant rely on those Dragons to do anything right. Hopefully they crack next week as well!

They are still absolutely no chance to miss the finals unless we utterly pants them and Manly do the same to Cronulla.

Also Benji is so used to missing the 8 at the last minute so he'll probs choke hard. I expect to win next week and for Manly to beat Cronulla but I still think that the Dragoons will make it. Least deserving top 8 contender ever though.

For the Dragons to miss the 8, there needs to be a 61 point swing in P/D between them and Manly. Just for the sake of argument, if we put 50 on them next week, Manly would only have to beat the Sharks by 10. Highly unlikely, but anything is possible i guess.

If we put 50 on them next week and they still make the 8, that'd be fun.

I honestly don't know how the Dragons lost today. I watched the first 15 minutes and they looked to be so fired up for a win, then I had to go out for a few hours. When I came home and found out they'd lost, I was stunned!

They will be desperate next week for sure. Would be nice to rain on their parade, though they will probably still make the eight, but going into finals on the end of a thrashing would sap their confidence somewhat, I reckon :mrgreen:
