WEEK 2 Manly - Nth Qld - almost a 50/50 imo - lets say Manly Souths - raiders - Souths will bounce back this week WEEK 3 Manly - Storm - ???? Manly Dogs - Souths - Dogs get a soft win imo GF Dogs - Manly/Storm/Cows I dont like to say it but the Dogs have a pretty nice run into the GF & must be rated a 75% chance of being there. All other 3 teams can get them on the day but all face harder hurdles along the way imo. The week off is not always a great thing & whoever plays them in the big game will get out the blocks better, but have less in reserve for the final 20 minutes. The Seaeagles have to overcome massive obstacles in coming weeks, far more than 2008, 2011 - but this will only make the victory sweeter if the GF victory is achieved.
