    I started laughing when I saw Stringer in the starting line-up.

    Then I remembered we had King.

    A draw in mediocrity.

    Fitzy does well to fit that lot under the $3.25M cap.

    If we saw that team listed last year, we'd be pretty confident.

    im confident.. i like Parra but if both forwards play to their potential ours would win imo.

    Looking at their stats Moi moi and Hindmarsh.. their parras monster metres and their both gooone.

    Forwards have to step up.. we wont win it in the backs. Come on boys fire up!

    To win, we will need every 50/50 call to go our way, every bounce of the ball to favour us, Monas' kicking game to be 30% better than last week and as KaZa says our forwards have to dominate the eels forwards.

    We can win it, but we need a lot of things to fall our way.

    For once I find myself agreeing with Contrary Pete.

    This is getting dangerous!

    its all about possession.. we all know we cant hold out a great parra side.. but the less oppurtunities they have at our line..the closer we will be of winning

    65% + possession of the ball is necessary.

    Add Hindmarsh to that Stuey.

    And the NRL question us getting Orford / Bell with the reserve grade players we have playing 1st grade:-

    Scott Donald
    Paul Stephenson
    Mark Bryant
    Steve Matai
    Ashley Alberts
    Michael Witt
    Terry Hill (match payments even - doesn't count)

    They'd all be on VERY small money & made up 33% of our team.

    Consider Orford / Bell are both on $250k each next year (that was what was advertised), and we have let go of:- harris / randall / hill / hoppa / donald & I'd say one of matai / steppa, I'd either question if we are getting value for money, OR we are still well under the salary cap.
