    Its amazing that we are still a chance (however slight) to finish second still. That would be amazing!

    Maybe we should rest the entire 1st grade squad and then we finish 5th.


    Advantages -

    we play Brisbane/Cantberra or Tigers in Sydney thus limited travel.

    we get to rest and refresh

    we get a hard game against a low ranked team as a hitout before taking on a softened up top four side. (Probably Souths).

    Disadvantage

    if we lose we are out. (But I couldn't see that happening, unless the NRL do their usual No Real Leadership thing.)

    I was hoping for a Manly V Bulldawgs game in the first round for quite a while, but the closer it gets the more I hope we play Melbourne in Melbourne. Either way, I'm not scared of either fixture.

    There should be like NFL a tie-breaker & not for/against to determine places when teams are on equal points.

    Manly beat both the Cowboys & Rabbitohs in regular season. But for/against is unfair as not every team plays each other twice.

    In the NFL it is decided between the teams based on who has best record against the other team.

    In all likelihood we will finish 4th.

    It will be an absolutely massive game between Manly and Scumdogs.

    One that Manly will win. The Scumdogs are shortening stride to use a racing analogy.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they get done again next week.

    The Cowboys result is irrelevant in your 2nd scenario.

    what about a:

    Melbourne lose both
    Souths win
    Manly win

    We play Souths, Melbourne play the Dogs.

    I could live with that scenario.
    (depending on for and against, Melbourne could even slip to 5th if the Cowboys also won)

    So many scenarios 1 week away from the finals.

    If we finish 4th, as expected, we'll play Storm in Melbourne. I expect Storm to finish minor premiers ...

    Wanna bet? Roosters are a basket case, they have untold talent and it's their last game of the year. They are not playing to impress Brian Smith, they are playing to impress Sonny Bill Williams. Good luck Dogs, it won't be easy.

    Where's the advantage finishing 5th?

    Best case scenario of finishing 5-8 is winning first week of the semis, which places you in the same place as the losers of the 1-4 games. Downside of 5-8 is potential immediate eliminition, and upside of 1-4 is a week off and jumping straight to the GF qualifier.

    I'm more worried about souths than any other side. We beat them easily 2 weeks ago but they didn't have Inglis. He was outstanding yesterday and gives them a lot more both in attack and confidence. I have a feeling the dogs are on the downward slope. Melbourne are a bit of an unknown quantity given their recent poor form, and the fact that apart from their big three the rest of their side is average. They're always hard in Melbourne though. For that reason I'd prefer to take on the flea beagles in week one.

    agreed Rex. We must finish top 4 imo.
    No one has won from 5th since '98 under the AFL system.
