If I read the table correctly the Warriors are safe on 13th 50 points clear of the Tigers on PD. I thought it was less than that so the only thing the Tigers have to play for is 20 point win to get them above the Titans to 14th.

If they beat us by 26 or more they leap us to 13th, would thought we where safe... But warriors? and Tui may have a point to prove?

According to NRL stats the Warriors are -119 and the Tigers -170. I thought it was less than that but the website must be correct.

I can't find the stats but I don't think Shaun Johnson or Foran have any.
I can't even recall any of our halves even getting remotely close or ring for a 40/20. Even when in ideal range we stick to the process and kick it up the middle. In Forans case usually straight to the fullback on the full.

This Dragons Dogs game is exciting as hell. You'd have thought both teams had their season on the line.

Phew the cowboys didn't get knocked out.

Credit to the dragons though, they had a really good crack tonight.

Dragon players look so gutted. Will be a contrast to the end of the game today when after the game the Warriors players will be rushing to give fist bumps, butt pats and hugs to their tigers counterparts.

Amazing that the Dragons missed out on the 8. They were sitting 2nd at one stage in the early weeks...

Great game - right down to the last play - dragons could have won but still, great to watch.

Anyone who has been listening to Kearney's post match conference each game, please have a listen to nathan brown's post match talk after the team just won their second wooden spoon in a row. Him and Bruhrer spoke really well and clearly tpuching on a number of points we never get to hear about. Such a huge gap between what we get dished up.

Brown also said on NRL 360 a few weeks back that he also has the club management who are aware of the situation they are in and are prepared to go through a rebuild. Now compare that to our last few years with coaches probably aware of that but sacked for various reasons and supporters in awe of the roster.

Are our management team prepared for a few lean years to turn things around?

Can the club afford a few lean more lean years even if it is what they expect to turn things around long term? New Zealanders aren't like the Newcastle faithful who turn up in decent numbers to support their club most of our sports sides the crowds fall off whenever results are tough.

I suppose the difference is, on paper Browny had nothing so he could only go up.
We on the other hand have the Kiwi spine and a big pack (LOL) and on paper we should be top 8 material.
As someone said "we had a good team on paper, only problem was the game was played on grass"

Fair point. I have posted the question a few times is it better to rebuild or fix a squad from mid table or lower on the table.

In theory from mid table like we have been should be easier at it is a case of recruiting a few players to plug gaps. Since 2012 when we have been in this slump other clubs have come from bottom of the table rebuilding and got to the finals.

The last few years like in our early years new coaches have probably felt the roster was better than it was and they could get the best out of them whereas the previous regime couldn't. They fail as well and rinse and repeat.
