Agree with you on it's importance. We need to win at least 9 (because of current +/-) out of our remaining 16 games to be in with a sniff. Considering we have to play the Panthers twice & the Storm again, if we lose today there's not too much room for error thereafter
Yeah. That's right. We lost games we should have won in first 2 rounds. If we had had a couple more pre-season games I believe we would have won those. When you lose against weaker teams it means you have to win more top 4 level games. It's so crucial to thrash the bottom teams.

Concerned that Moylan and Hynes will run our edge defence ragged today. Hoping for the best but worried about our edges. A positive is that mulitalo not playing.
I think that's the biggest threat. We generally do ok at containing players Ike Talakai. But our edges are scary. It's funny how people used to blame Manu and Ken's slowness for our edge defence issues. But we have much quicker, more agile wingers now and it's arguably worse? Can't wait for Montoya's return. Hope Pompey smartens up on his defensive tactics.

watching the Melborne Storm cant wait till we get Metcalf.... we need speed.... Nick Meanie is average but with his speed in a Storm backline looks devastating lol

Apparently hunt is out/ fafita in and Hynes and talakai are both struggling with the flu (still playing as far as I know).

That is good new, the wings and hynes/molan combo are the 4 we need to keep the extra eye on and try and kick out of the game. But odd they playing with the "flu". Takakai is a beast.

Berrys edge is my main concern, especially vs Talakai. Id be pulling our best defender into that spot, possibly even Pompey. lets hope hes on point.

I couldn’t quite bring myself to take us in the tipping comp this week but I’m all over the $5.50 on offer at Sportsbet- we’re a much better chance than that.
True mate. I couldn't help myself. Had to take the $5.10 on the TAB. Great price in a two horse race

Mark up on Talkai to stop the wing (which has been their big scores). Possibly Shaun Johnson to target with the kick.

Shut the halves down as usual.

The simply do not drop the ball with no pressure and have Lodge under leash so no cheap 4 penalties.

Do that, and our halves have shown plenty of times this year they go 24 points in them minimum.

We lose because we gift posession and position and eventually our goal line D folds.

If Browny has managed to correct those major (u13 like) errors, we should have this. But I thought that vs Roosters which was not our doing.

We have them on paper, just catch the passes and put the ball over the line, finish the sets and we got too much game management in Shaun Johnson to not control the game.

The flip side, we continue to not complete sets this round and we lose. Its a guessing game. Its mental, Brown needs to have had sport psychology in there and he needs to make sure the likes of Berry and Villiami feel like they deserve to be out there.

It could be Sharks 13+ otherwise.

Dang, Storm to #1 they smashing the Red V.
