We showed what we were about today. A strong forward pack, the occasional slick backline move and good scramble defense. So if we play our best footy, as we probably did today, how far can we honestly go in this competiton? I can't see us winning, that's almost out of the question. Any rational fan would agree with me. The fact is though, if we hold our own and stumble into 6th spot, we can afford to lose our first game and still have a second chance in the finals. We could find ourselves playing a higher ranked but out of town team in week 2 of the finals, such as the Cowboys. We put 80 minutes of good footy together and suddenly, we're 80 minutes of more good footy away from the grand final. It all sounds a little crazy but it's more realistic than any MSE thread.
