    Ummm I might be a bit slow on the uptake here but I don't get what you are trying to get at here.

    For example, this is where we came:

    2007: 2nd (Runner up)
    2008: 2nd (Premiers)
    2009: 5th (Out first round)
    2010: 8th (Out first round)
    2011: 2nd (Premiers)
    2012: 4th (Out week 3)

    The premiers came from the following positions:

    2007: 1st
    2008: 2nd
    2009: 4th
    2010: 1st
    2011: 2nd
    2012: 2nd

    Finally, where did the Premiers come the next year:

    2007: (Brisbane) 8th
    2008: (Melbourne) 1st
    2009: (Manly) 5th
    2010: (Melbourne) 16th
    2011: (Dragons) 5th
    2012: (Manly) 4th

    The only point I see you trying to make is that Melbourne didn't win in 2009 and therefore, because they knocked us out, we should have been premiers (from 5th place). This is completely incorrect as we don't know what would have happened if things were different.

    Not at the end of the regular season. We haven't won the minor premiership since 1997.

    Technically seeing as how we lost the prelim final to the eventual premiers this year we came 3rd, Souffs came 4th.

    Well here's one to look forward to if history's right : the beaten grand finalists don't make the 8 the year after.
    2010 - roosters
    2011 - warriors
    Both failed to make the 8 the year after there gf appearance

    Same with Parra in 2009 as losing finalists missing the 8 the next year, so hopefully 4 in a row for the losing finalists!!

    I think the point was, as defending premiers, we finished 4th this season. The last defending premiers finished 5th.

    In fact, we were the best placed defending premiers since Penrith in 2004 (legal anyway)............and showing just how hard it is to back up the following season after winning a comp (legally anyway).
