They've been penalised for salary cap breaches and written off by all the pundits but despite their predicament a Warriors revival appears to be underway with three wins in their last three games.

So why aren't they talking playoffs, when statistically speaking it's still a possibility?

Well they'll need almost unprecedented consistency if they're to make the top eight with a minimum of 30 points is seen as the cut off point this year.

The Warriors have 12 and need to win eight of their last nine games to reach the magic mark.

They've got the Panthers, Bulldogs, Eels, Sharks, Cowboys, Storm, Roosters and Broncos to go.

Except for the Bulldogs and Sharks, they're all sides that are in the bottom half or they've beaten or come close against this year.

Lock Sione Faumuina admits the play-offs are something the players are thinking about.

"I guess it has been at the back of our minds but we've got a bit of a roll on we just want to play some consistent footie. We're at the business end of the season so anything can happen," he told ONE News.

The club's average crowd of just under 9,000 is the smallest in the NRL and down by more than 4,000 on last year but that is not worrying coach Ivan Cleary.

"They've obviously got other things to do, all we can do is play well and hopefully people will come along and watch."

But second row Michael Luck believes there is some optimism at the club

"We still think we can make the eight. Looking at the draw I think its realistic. We're here to shake some sides up and hopefully come the first week of the finals we're there."

It is possible after all as the West Tigers won 11 of their final 13 games to take the title last year.
 
GO THE WARRIORS!!!!! I have faith in you making the top 8!
