    :pray: Hopefully the NSW selectors do us a favour and pick Kimmorley and Ennis ... then we might have a shot.

    Was just thinking: we could get a weakened Dogs team heading into Mt Smart. We'll definitely feel the loss of Pricey, our best player. Fact of the matter is 15 is the magic number for a team to beat us at the moment; the only times we have won in the past nine weeks has been when we have kept teams to nil (ironically in both of our last two home games). Dogs are the best attacking side in the comp on averages though. Not stacking up, but I hope we put in a good performance.

    tbh, you still wouldn't be able to score enough ponits to win

    Bulldogs easily imo.

    aren't the warriors averaging 15 points a match, only?

    edit: ah, just saw Rovelli's post

    If the Warriors do not win this game they've got serious problems!

    We'll have no Kimmorley, Ennis, Idris, Warbourton, Armit, Hannant, Goodwin & Eastwood (Hopefully not lol) & Stagg was limping last night??? Short turn around from such a brutal game... I really hope we manage a scrappy, gritty win next week but not confident.

    If Warriors don't win this, Clearly should commit seppuku on the spot.

    Yep all correct!!

    Bulldogs next weekend will be missing the following players...

    Hannant
    Idris
    Josh Morris
    Bryson Goodwin
    Eastwood
    Kimmorley
    Ennis
    Chris Armit
    Gary Warburton

    If the Warriors cannot win against a Bulldogs NSW Cup team, they've got MASSIVE problems.

    Lol @ Warriors if they cannot win. The Dogs at nearly full strength weren't too impressive against Manly, but defended well until the last 10 minutes. The Warriors have not scored 18 points or more since around about rd 5, here is their big chance to score more. Warriors easy.

    don't discount club morale. I think the doggies will punch well above their weight in this one.

    That Bulldogs' side is average and most teams would beat them at home. That said, Brisbane and the Gold Coast fielded weakened teams against us and won comfortably in the end.

    The Bulldogs have impressed me all season, despite the loss, their D was really tough. It will be close and I hope the Warriors grind it out.

    The Warriors are going like busted a*seholes at the moment. Even without those players the Dogs should be able to beat them.

    Hang on, you called me a fool when I suggested a while back this might happen to the Dogs....I do recall saying in about 3-4 weeks time the Dogs will struggle and could slip a bit....you couldn't help but take the piss, yet now you agree with me??
