Marko's - we've had on average 22-23 points scored against us per game mate.....come on. We are 11th (after coming 12th last year). Let's all at least be realists mate. We could drop to 13th this weekend.
Or we could be back in the 8. No way we're letting Flanagan get both wins on us mate.

I don't disagree with what you've suggested but I will point out, the Dragons have achieved a higher ladder position than us, with a significantly inferior roster. It's one of the worst rosters in the league but they are doing well to adapt to a new regime and are playing with hunger and passion.
I guess you can only beat who is in front of you.

After us they have Dolphins, Roosters, Broncos, Panthers, Storm. Will be keen to see how their hunger and passion is fairing after that.

Losing to a premiership heavyweight at home isn't a good barometer. We were in that game but the ref didn't police the ruck enough for us to have any serious chance.

We have lost some very winnable games, that's the disappointing factor for me. We could easily be in the top 4 right now.

But that also just goes to show that we are far from done. Our draw is quite good and our defensive problems can be fixed, especially if Siebold stops picking Garrick at f#$king centre.

Maybe the difference is down to the coaching.......

My guess is a stint in each.
Agree, it looks a little scrambled tbh. Brownie will just give his all, but can't see him putting in a 20min shift. Likewise with Sips, he's playing busted, we really need him to aim up. And Bully becomes our defacto impact player of the bench. And lastly lets all hope Ola is over his calf soreness.
 
Can anyone tell me if the all Players, Coach and everyone involved in the club read any of our compliant or its just us and all going on deaf ears. Bit of a waste of time if not, might as well go back to whinging to my cats and fish.

They were tipped by many to get the spoon, but to me after 14 rounds, their roster looks on a par with ours.

We will most likely finish in front of them but the difference between say 7th and 9th or 10th is often luck with injury and decisions by refs.

Think that there was a very likely valid stat mentioned by someone before the Storm game , 8 wins out of 13 remaining fixture games required to make the eight , [ 7 out of 12 then on that prediction then no doubt ] with the Panthers loss now 7 out of 11 required .
Loss against the Dragons , then presumably 7 from 10 , certainly just that bit harder on any measure then .
Very much in the really must win category against the Dragons considering the current circumstances and what should be a quite winnable game , if Manly is up for it

I guess we will see on Sunday. I desperately want a win however our defence out wide is paper thin. Lomax may score 5!
last week our defence through the middle was paper thin, they would race through the middle and then send it wide when our backs were trying to cover
