    I was just told we still can make it to 5th. I didnt think that was a chance.
    Rooster lose to the Cowboys.
    Warriors lose to Eels.
    We win - for & against does not matter.

    Then again we lose and Rabbits win - we could be out.

    we need the tigers desperately as they have the weakest pack..penrith flog us out there very time and with a weakened side like ours we would be flogged.i think the tigers are the only side we have even the slightest hope against.Sts and Penrith will murder us.

    it doesnt matter really as we will be fodder the following week but a second week final campaign in my book would be an outstanding result given our injuries/suspensions and referee problems.

    Yep, hopefully we make the 2nd round of the finals. I want Glenn Stewart fit for our 2nd trial next year.

    I hope we dont cop a flogging tomorrow but still make 8th then suffer the inevitable embarrasment of being flogged by Saints next week. Better to end the season tomorrow in shame than next week in total humiliation.

    I hate to say it but some of the 'supporters' on here are disappointing. I'm not running the 'true supporter' line here, far from it. Yep, we aren't going well. It is obvious and there is a raft of reasons why and we have discussed them at length. But to want to see us bow out early I just don't get. Tomorrow is shame, next week is humiliation mick? It may happen and it may not. I'd rather see us finish in the 8 than not. Every week is a new possibility.

    TBH I wouldn't be to embarrassed if we're out in the first week of the finals or this week. Think about it we got rookie halves, our fullback has been out for the majority of the season, our back row has now been decimated by injuries and suspension. So if we make it I'll be proud of the boy's none the less

    Making 8th is a good effort either way - if we had a full compliment of players we would be one og the favourites.

    Im happy being in the 8 and we have done well and how would you feel being a dogs or Eels fan right now.

    I personally would be happy being a team that would be a premiership fav but some times we just have to suck it up and be happy where we are.

    Yeah our luck with the refs decisions has cost us a top 4 spot alone not to mention our injury's and rookie halves ect.

    Those that are happy to accept mediocrity are destined to live with it for all time. Me, I accept winning, anything less is failure.

    [/quote]

    We have 2 options
    1. Accept a little pain for long term survival
    2. Lets go all out and go over the salary cap and come last (the dreaded wooden spoon)

    1st option for me. We've now given Hoppa Jnr and the like experience at top grade and they know they can play there it's only a matter of time until we reap the benefit's. A prime example of this is look at the Canberra Raiders and the New Zealand Warriors who's young players are playing great football no matter how you lookat it.
