then come to Australia and u'll never need to watch or hear about another game again. Of course you'll be swamped by Gay FL, otherwise known as aerial ping pong, or just that shit....

Yeah for people that complain about Union at least they don’t have fumble ball rammed down their throats

So that Dogs loss has kind of fucked us. Not looking like we'll finish any higher than 7th now, Broncos have Manly in Brisbane next week, so I don't see us coming away with a better differential.

Cmon Dragons,Panthers and Sharks to lose heavily!!!

Sharks and Dragons both have Knights and Dogs in their final two rounds. Dragons if anyone might stumble but don't think Sharks will. Will be annoyed if they both towel up the Dogs after we lose to them.

Hmmm.... with brisbane winning tonight it’s on like a donkie kong next week with Canberra!
Hopefully that keeps our motivation high to try and sneak up a place if we win and a few upsets occur. Can't be complacent that we finally locked up a finals place after a lean spell. This has a usual making of Warriors finals spot locked up, farewell departing club legend big crowd followed by flat performance.

Hopefully smash them off the park.

With how close the points table is there probably a chance to get congested on 32 points. The for and against is the main issue.

if the warriors play the sharkies for the first final do they play at shark park or is it moved for the same reason that they cant play at Mt Smart?
Some years they have done the first round of the finals at the home grounds and from the second week on it is at the regional stadiums. Usually get a few Sydney clubs complain that they lose home ground advantage. Or why did <insert team here> get to play at home last week where we get it taken away despite like usual the guidelines have been known all year it becomes an issue as soon as it affects their team.

Best fucking Footy comp in the world IMHO ...

when you look at the top 8 anyone of the teams could make the GF going off games played
It is all on in a few weeks. If any side is going to win the premiership outside the top 4 this year would be a good chance.

The 3 big sides in Storm, Souths, Roosters have all had the wobbles recently.

Yeah this is the year of the underdog.

The Minnows are trashing the chances of the big fish.

Cant wait for this arvo...could see both underdogs winning.

Even the last try we let in on Friday night has cost us a position on the ladder.... moral of the story... for and against is crucial and you can’t afford to clock off in a game because you are leading by a decent margin!!!
 

up the guts

Q..... if we finish 7th or 8th ..play the first week of finals in oz .. and win .. where do we play week 2
 

up the guts

We play over in Oz at the home ground on one of the top four teams who loses in the first week of the finals. Finsih in 7th or 8th and you never get a home

Quite honestly with the unique make up of this 2018 team ( its predictably all in their heads) we would be best finishing top four but not having a home game.

You cant have both a life up your sleeve and exclusively away games so this finishing lower 8 is the same difference.

The only time these head cases play well is either the adversity of a loss ( seriously we are better off losing to Canberra ) or as we saw at seasons start....playing games that no one gives us a chance in.

I Guarantee you if we lose to the Raiders, the following week the Sharks or whoever's season is over.

Why Is this so ?

It goes to the core of kiwi rugby league...the talented kid who's parents couldn't afford playing fees.

Its fucked up but that's how it is. The sport here feeds off negatives and cant deal with expectation.

Kearney will change it over time.

The lower we finish the better our chances.

As daft as that is....take a look at the little guys in the NRL this year rolling the top four...the competition has changed...its not the NRL we knew....the comp is even and teams with a negative psychological motivator win this time of year.
