    It really mixes the comp up for us, takes points differential out of play, and has its positives and negatives

    What it means for us is that there may be a lot of table hopping, with a good differential on even points, it isn't easy for teams that were behind us to catch and jump us, a loss now can leave us vulnerable to a chasing pack

    On the flip side, Souths and Chooks have a much better differential than us so if they drop a couple we can skip up the ladder easier

    It will prove valuable. The match showed that we will beat Melbourne at a neutral venue and with neutral refs. We had a few key players out. It was a massive effort.
    If they back-up against Canberra they are super-human. Must be that new Yugoslavian strength conditioner is having a good effort on their stamina and endurance.

    Yeah it takes the F/A out of the equation but i would not read to much into it, at the end of the day we just need to work on our attack and discipline and everything else will fall into place.

    If you asked me before the game would you take the point I would have said 'hell yes'.

    Yeah the 1 point is an interesting one.

    It worked for cornulla last year, that 1 point proved to be a pain afor other teams all year.

    I agree with The Who that the 1 point will be valuable at years end. Realistically, I think most people thought we wouldn't get anything out of tonights game. 1 point will prove to be a bonus, although we deserved 2.

    The 1 point is a valuable buffer and it definitely beats the Scum receiving 2 competition points that they don't deserve.

    Didn't Greese take over over one of those countries before they went belly up?
    He was still born in Yugoslavia, that can't change.

    It's takes the For and Against out of the equation EXCEPT for the Storms F/A. We'll be tracking with them all season.

    Storm 77 (15 points)
    Manly 71 (13 points)

    Considering we could have come away with 0 points, 1 point is almost as good as 2 in my opinion.

    Fair point Weev - and that could be crucial if we are fighting for 2nd & 3rd.

    50% of something is better than 100% of nothing. It got us back into the top four and with all the BS of last night in terms of the penalty count i think it's a very big positive.

    It is clint, and also if we are fighting between 4 and 5 or even 8 and 9.

    This weekends games could see us bump them.
    Storm v roosters
    Manly v c'bra

    And we meet the storm again in the second last round at brookie.

    I get your point weev, but I can't see us fighting the Storm for 8th spot to be honest mate, or even fourth for that matter.
    I think it's possible that we could end up in a battle with them for 2nd though.
