    I just did my ladder prediction at nrl.com and here is what I came up with.

    1. Manly Sea Eagles 40
    2. Melbourne Storm 38
    3. Nth Qld Cowboys 34
    4. Parramatta Eels 32
    5. Canterbury Bulldogs 30
    6. Brisbane Broncos 28
    7. Cronulla Sharks 28
    8. NZ Warriors 28
    9. Wests Tigers 26
    10. Gold Coast Titans 24
    11. Canberra Raiders 22
    12. Newcastle Knights 22
    13. Sth Sydney Rabbitohs 16
    14. Sydney Roosters 16
    15. St George Dragons 14

    That is with us losing 2 more games the rest of this year.

    *All home teams win

    Second week of finals: (warriors and sharks drop out)

    Broncos beat Eels
    Cowboys beat Bulldogs

    Nutz, how can you realistically tip us to finish ahead of Melbourne on points on the Ladder?

    I expect that he has looked into his crystal ball and forseen season-ending injuries to Smith, Inglis, Cronk and Johnson...

    We have an easier run home than them.

    I'm also hopeful we start firing once we finally get a full team back on deck and no interruptions.

    This is our run home and what I predicted:

    Rnd 16:
    Manly beat St George
    Melbourne Bye

    Rnd 17:
    Manly beat Roosters
    Melbourne beat Rabbits

    Rnd 18:
    Manly beat Wests
    Melbourne beat Newcastle

    Rnd 19:
    Sharks beat Manly
    Melbourne beat Canberra

    Rnd 20:
    Manly beat Parra
    Roosters beat Storm (they'll be comlacent) ;)

    Rnd 21:
    Manly beat Broncos (cuz i'll be there)
    Sharks beat Melbourne at home

    Rnd 22:
    Manly beat Newcastle
    Broncos beat Melbourne

    Rnd 23:
    Manly beat Souths
    Melbourne beat Parramatta

    Rnd 24:
    Warriors beat Manly (the road trip from hell)
    Bulldogs beat Melbourne

    Rnd 25:
    Manly beat Dragons
    Melbourne beat Titans

    Watch for the Melbourne form slump between rounds 20 and 22 :lol: and the bulldogs fighting for a spot in the 8 to roll them aswell.

    Obviously, there is alot of wishful thinking but i'm a glass half full type and you gotta admit it's not impossible. The only loss I have down for the Storm I would consider a boilover is the Roosters game. But you gotta throw in a loss like that I reckon.

    I reckon we can afford to lose 2 of our last 9 games against St George twice, Newcastle, Rabbits, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Tigers and Warriors.

    If we lose just two of those I think we have a chance of being around the minor premiership.

    The Storm have Bye (no easy beats), rabbits, newcastle, canberra, roosters.. but then I reckon it gets hard for them.. they have Sharks at Cronulla, Broncos in Melbourne, Parramatta in Melbourne, bulldogs away and finish withthe Titans at home.

    I think that Broncos and Parra will go down to Melbourne and play well... broncos will still be looking to secure a top 8 spot and Parra weren't far off beating them in the final last year. Bulldogs at Telstra where they will also be trying to secure a spot won't be easy either.
