Despite the doom and gloom and also the reality that the Dogs will be a hard test this weekend, we are still a chance: Glass is half full today. 1. We are unbeaten at Brookie and our form against Sharks, Melbourne etc has been reasonably good. 2. Our backs look to have more firepower than earlier in the season. 3. The Dogs are still without their superstars. 4. We have beaten them once this year away. 5. They are the reigning premiers and a side usually needs no motivation to perform well against the Best. 6. We have been flat over the last little while and should be able to lift the way good sides do in big games. 7. Kennedy and Beaver are playing. 8. Should be a big corwd at the Fortress to give the dogs heaps. 9. Kite will be keen to play well against Shrek. 10. Our forwards have more mobility than the Dogs and if we can match them we can pressure their very good halves. 11. It is the most important game of the year. 12. There is no number 12. A good challenge that will tell us where we are in relation to the rest of the year. We can do it - but we will have to play well.
