This week against Brisbane in Brisbane looms to be the Eagles biggest test thus far this season. WARRIORS: good win- surprised many, especially away from home. CRONULLA: Good win at Brookie especially down a man. STORM: Best win of the season- against quality opposition but still at home. DRAGONS: in a funny way probably good to lose one to keep everyones feet on the ground. Dragons have a quality side and were due to fire. This doesn't make this loss a good thing but easier to deal with. RAIDERS: got off to a good start like us but at Brookie with our firepower we blew them off the park. I don't rate Canberra and my prediction is for them to fall in a heap this season. RABBITS: A run of poor form from the bunnies, no Heggarty, Ben Walker straight from the pub (slight exaggeration but you get the drift), loss of Adam 'BALCO' MacDougall = not too big a test for the Eagles. Don't get me wrong a big win and stuck to a good game plan which basically never allowed Souths into the game but in all honesty they weren't much opposition on the day and that's a fact. This week is test for the team.With our form thus far I am confident about this season and with the personel we have both on and off the field BUT if these last few seasons have taught us anything that is not to get too carried away with things.....something about counting chickens before they hatch- I think we have a little bit of growing to do yet before we hatch- imparticular our baby eagle backs. I hope we give it to Broncos this week but I am wary of them. I agree with Matabele in regards to Jason King, granted he hasn't had much game time recently but even when he has he hasn't been that impressive. He has been touted for a while as a State of Origin prop but at present the only thing I can see he has is size- and not being the 80s anymore he is going to need more than that. I'm Manly through and through and I hope (sometimes pray :roll: ) that King gets going- if he does I will happily eat my words. As far as some of you fair weather posters who like to come on and have a go at posters for posting their thoughts instead of putting a constructive arguement back to give your point well I think the whole point of a forum is lost on you. Mata seems to be the main target for some of these lame arsed retorts with very little substance to them. If you don't agree with something why not give your opinion instead of having a go at someone for simply putting their case forward. I'm sure that Matabele doesn't mind copping it but all the same it's getting a bit tiresome.
