I am now grudgingly satisfied with the outcome of this season. Six weeks ago we were favourites for our first spoon and all I wanted then was to avoid the spoon. I believe we have now done that and it is looking like the drugcastle have both hands on that title. We won't make the top 8 I'm afraid. I believe we will fall one game short and the loss to Penrith will be the one that got away. Our only hope is to slip past Melbourne. They are on 26 points and play Cronulla (A), Newcastle (H), Nth Qld (H) & Brisbane (A). They will beat Newcastle but could lose the other three to finish on 28 points, which means we will need to win every game from here. The run for 7th & 8th is relatively easy and they need to win 2 or 3 of them: Canterbury play Titans (A), souffs (A), Newcastle (A) & Warriors (H) St George play Brisbane (A), Penrith (H), Titans (A) & Tigers (H) I see both winning at least 3 to finish on 30 points and with better for & against than us. The simple answer is we need to win every game from here and have Melbourne lose three to make the 8. Sadly, it just won’t happen.
