    10 matches to go, 7 games at Brookvale.
    But the Brookvale games are all tough matches:
    Shark
    Cowboys
    Warriors
    Broncos
    Rabbits
    Eels
    Roosters

    Away matches:
    Titans
    Warriors
    Raiders

    Can only see us beating sharks, Warriors and Eels.


    Can we avoid the spoon?

    Win the next 3, and anything is possible! Tough games, but the Brookvale factor should get us near the 8!

      I appear to have given up hope. Working on it.

        I've give up on the 8. Don't care too much for this season. I've got a tough exam in early Sep so us not making the 8 is in my selfish best interests haha

        Looks like we'll have a solid squad for next year though so it's not like we have a long rebuild. If we can **** off the dead wood pack members and replace them with more of what we've been buying, top 4 is in play.

          I think we will get between 8-9 wins for the season. It is a race between us Nits and Tigpies for the spoon it seems.

          I've never really thought the 8 was gonna happen and I remember the night we got trounced by the Dogs at Allianz that we would contend for the spoon. I have a gut feeling that we will avoid it by the skin of our teeth though. The silver lining is that any victory is celebrated like a GF, whereas in seasons gone by, it always felt like a form guide for bigger things to come at the end of the year and did matter quite so much.

            How the mighty have fallen. We've become like those sad sack EPL teams that cheer avoiding relegation like they've won the Champs League.

            We could get a few upsets at Brooky. I think we will be bottom 4 but not get the spoon

            You're not wrong. I remember last year when he pushed the Dogs to extra time in the SF with a horrendous injury toll, and I thought to myself how special the club and this group of players were, and then less than a year later we are contending for dead last...it's a real shame.

                A win on Sunday, then Killer and BJ back the following week will make things interesting.

                    Injuries are excuses. Even at brookie, we are struggling to put a gap between our opposition when we do get a lead. Celebrate if you wish if we avoid the wooden spoon, but let's call a spade a spade. Manly are s**t this year.

                      Well this is an interesting post......one for the true believers

                      I will state that after about Round 5 I "nearly" posted that this was going to be our first wooden spoon.........

                      The doom had set in BUT Things have now changed very much!! but also so subtly that the doomsters can not see.

                      The last 2 games were "nearly" Sea Eagles of old "nearly" and we have BJ and Killer to come back.

                      My take..........we will win MORE than we lose of the next 10 games there will be much joy and the NRL referees will be powerless to stop it!!!
