After we win next week, do we then play the storm in Melbourne? Or is it in Sydney?
Really? So even in week three teams still get home games... That's a bit suss
Looks like I'll be going to Melb
Yep has been the case for a few years now, remember Warriors beat them in Melbourne last year to make the GF
You can't be serious ?
That's a f*cking joke.
Why don't we just play the GF in Slater's mum's back yard. We can just moving the outdoor furniture.
Yep winning last night was more important then many realize The Dogs get to play either Canberra/Sharks or Souffs at ANZ to make the GF.
How about we take one game at a time !
You are kidding aren't you?! The team that finishes second wins their first final match and you expect a home 'state' advantage for us?! You are pulling my leg aren't you
It is exactly how it should be
We play 26 rounds to get a ranking, and that should hold all the way through
it's a worry that the two teams we have to play are the teams that looked good in their first outings.
Yeah it's a joke mate! Melbourne finish 2nd and get a home semi. We finish 4th and dont. Thats wrong on all accounts.
Yep losing last night has landed us on the **** side of the draw. We can still do it but damb it will be hard.
Disagree. 4th with a loss - should be us vs Melbourne @ brooky
Dogs 1st and win should have to play canberra in canberra or Souths at Redfern oval.
You have to be kidding, ALL games should be played at Brooky regardless, even the GF.
I must agree with you.
We are going to Mordor in two weeks....
Most sensible post all season
So by this logic if the Scum play anyone but the Scumdogs, the Grand Final is in Melbourne ?
Old age must be screwing with my memory.
I thought home region advantage ended in week 1.
