Based on finals calculator at http://leagueunlimited.com/static/calculator.asp, I see the top 8 being: Storm Bulldogs Sea Eagles Dragons Broncos Knights Raiders Cowboys This is based on Manly having 3 wins in a row after bye and losing against storm as they seem to fail winning four in a row. As for finals the following secaniorio should unfold. Week 1: Dragons defeat Broncos Sea Eagles defeat Knights Bulldogs defeat Raiders Storm defeat Cowboys Week 2: Dragons defeat Knights (eliminated) Sea Eagles defeat Broncos (eliminated) Week 3: Sea Eagles defeat Bulldogs (eliminated) Storm defeat Dragons (eliminated) Grand Final: Sea Eagles v Storm? Then it comes down to whether or not we can win four in a row (something not achieved for a long time) as to whether we can beat Storm in final. Optimistic, I agree but what are your thoughts?
