Are the news media gonna start saying Brisbane are at threat of missing the 8 instead of us now?

Haha nope! Even if we win this weekend and even if we move up a couple of places it’ll still be us in danger as far as they’re concerned

That Cowboys win Makes tomorrow's game a massive one now. Must win for the warriors. Could move to 6th spot if the sharks get done by Melbourne, and with Brisbane playing the bunnies and roosters in the next two weeks a win should see us in a good position for the finals.

if the Storm beat the Sharks and we win, we'll be in 6th by the end of the weekend. If the Dragons lose this week against Parra (long shot but still possible) and the Tigers beat them next week, we could be in 5th by the end of next round. If we keep winning and the Panthers slip up once in the next 2 weeks, our game at Mt Smart could be a battle for 4th. But we have to keep winning. I'm not losing hope just yet of a top 4 finish!

We are due a win at home against a top 8 team. If we keep winning and Penrith start to slide, there would be nothing better than moving into the top 4 based on a solid victory against that mob. Of course we need a lot to go right- Broncos going off the radar after continued losses to Souths and Roosters in coming weeks, Dragons continuing to slide and us to keep winning. But it could happen. Then we would be the genuine dark hose contender in the finals.

Pretty annoyed at my self, had the Cowboys picked all week and then dropped my balls at the last second.

Best not to start worrying about what other teams need to do or not do to benefit us, all we can do to control our destiny is win games.

Hyping this game to death, it'll probably end up a bit of dud, always seems to go that way, picked the roosters -12 as the rabbits put alot into last week's game, already made 2 errors and look rough as

Big forwards dominating this game, JWH hard to stop and the Burgesses smashing it up and attack and defence

I think the key to competing with these teams is to somehow match the Burgesses or JWH and Napas physicality. They just get more and more physical if they arent shy about going into contact. Both these team have cancelled each others forwards out

Crazy with the bunnies, its like the refs have just decided they have a fast ptb so give the other teams no time at all in the ruck, where as they are the worst floppers ever.

Man the roosters flail their legs in the air like crazy trying to manufacture pens, and in the case of JWH they get em.

Because there is a (largely) effective salary cap the competition is very tight. Any of the top 8 can beat each other on any given day, Bunnies could just as easily have won that game.

Fingers crossed we hit form in the play offs as I am convinced we can have a good run at it this year
