    Decent....but not the best if you ask me.

    Without Tate, Hunt, Lockyer, their backline looks a lot weaker.

    Apparently Lacey and Carroll may be no shows as well.

    By the way - Lacey is my hero. Gives us little fellas hope !!! I'm actually a full centimetre taller than him !!!

    It will be interesting to see if Hodges is passed fit to play. I thought Frawley was with Canberra?

    I would love to see us beat them but they need the points and we have wrapped up second place!!!

    Rubbish mate. We want 1st place, and I'm pretty sure The Storm play Eels, Dogs & Cowgirls still.

    We can't lose this one. Up here they're billing it as the 20th anniversary of the shellacking they gave us back in 88. I don't want to walk out of Lang Park this Sunday copping the same as I copped back in 88.

    Despite the injuries they can still field a sizeable lot of forwards. They lack skill however so if our guys can just "contain' their pack then our backs will do the rest.

    Their forward pack is still top class, and they laid the foundation for the win over Cronulla on the weekend. Can't afford to take them lightly, we need to muscle up and take it to them up the middle. Watch Berrigan closely as well.

    [/quote]What benefit does winning the minor Premiership really give a team except winning the JJ Giltinan Shield that should rightly be given to the Premiers? You get to play 8th rather than 7th in the first week but apart from that, there is no benefit at all. It is all bragging rights and the last 20 years is littered with Minor Premiers who bombed out. I would rather fly under the Melbourne radar and have the opposition under-rate us than have to play up for the next five. We need to be fresh and ready, timing our run to play the tough games at the end of the season. If that means a loss or two in the next five weeks I am happy with that.

    The Minor Premiership is good for 1 thing only, the $100k which comes with it. Apart from that coming 1st or 2nd means stuff all.

    I must add the $100k is pretty important for us considering we had a funding cut from the leagues club, I know the company bean counter would be urging/praying for them to win it!!!!

    I am sure the Melbourne accountant was ecstatic about last year's minor premiership??? :lie:

    Point taken but what do you get for the comp? Sponsorship, merchandise, plus general interest would much outweigh the Minor Premiership.


    Question - Name the minor Premiers in the 2000s.

    I understand your point completely but $100k in the bank is nothing to be sneezed at when you are making a loss. As I said it is the only thing which makes it worthwhile over 2nd.

    Only one I know is Penrith in 03 as they won the comp that year, only team I think of who has.

    I think I read somewhere that only one minor premier in the last six years has gone on to win the premiership.

    Would be interesting if someone could find this out, or even where the eventual winner was placed at the end of regular season play.

    1998- Broncos 1st
    1999- Storm 3rd
    2000- Broncos 1st
    2001- Knights 3rd
    2002- Roosters 4th

    Good bench too. Taylor will prop the Queensland pack for the next decade.

    Good list Kiwi. Bottom line is that the side playing the best footy at the money end of the season wins, not the minor premiers. We need to be up for the finals.

    A new comp starts in 5 weeks called semis. All bets are off - form out the window, Just ask St G as they have looked Premiers the last years and fallen at the last hurdle. Manly have not won a Semi game since 1997!!

    We NEED to keep watch on Shaun Jerrycan.... If he has a good game they will give us a scare... I'm glad Lyon will be marking Hodges this weekend. Go with their forwards and don't give Berrigan too much room to move and we should get away with a decent win.
