    Getting way ahead of myself here, but have looked at the table earlier and this could be something to keep an eye on the next couple of weeks.

    If we say the Storm won't drop another game, and we finish 2nd on the ladder

    The Roosters lose to the Rabbits and Dragons, which is quite possible, while the Raiders, Broncos and Dragons all win at least 1 of their matches, that would set us up with a clash against the Chooks in week 1

    What a clash that would be if they turned up interested, would be an awesome game

    It could still be on, but now requires the other 3 sides to win both their games now

    Dragons flogged them earlier in the year on Anzac day so that will be a good game next weekend

    Anyone but the Dragons please, they have the wood on us of late and have a good record at Brookie. I wouldn't be confident facing them first week of the finals, rather the Eels, Roosters or Raiders for sure.

    Ditto on the Dragons, no matter how **** they are they always seem to beat us. Still it would be a nice to knock them out, and it'll be at Brookie.

    Only upside I can see....have way to many mates who are Dragons fans who'll give it out both barrels if they roll us in the finals.

    We will beat Dragons or anyone else at Brookie in Round 1. It is semi finals people and the Dragons specialise at bombing out in September!!!

    CW, in recent times in the finals the Dragons have been pretty good in weeks 1 and 2, but week 3 in their hurdle from memory

    With the Storm losing we could get the Minor Premiership. Who knows who will fall over the line to come 8th - it could be the slimes and that would be great to put them out of business at Brookie!!! (Especially on a Sunday arvo!)

    Sharks fans have written us off with comments like:

    "how poorly Manly have gone against the other top 8"

    "melbourne will make the grandfinal. i think only us or bris are the team to challenge them.(manly's lost the plot.)"

    "I think there is no chance of Melbourne not making the GF and I think there is no chance of Manly beating Melbourne, in any scenario. The Storm just seem to have some psychological edge on them, I really don't think the Manly players believe they can beat the Storm."

    slimes can't finish 8th now

    the only 2 teams that can force their way into 8 are Panthers and Warriors now.

    The way i see it now, although have already been wrong 1000 times in this topic

    If we finish 1st, we get the Knights or Warriors (have written Penrith off, we must beat them for 1st)

    2nd and we get either Canberra or the Dragons

    Jethro, interesting how quickly gummy supporters forget the hammering we gave them down at that ****e shire stadium.  They'll win nothing as per usual.
