    Teams who have beaten the dragons normally lose the week after , i think goldcoast was the only team who won the week after beating the dragons

    LOL Nice to see you still haven't gotten over that.

    You'll need to be put on suicide watch if Brisbane miss the 8!

    No, i am fine. I thought they would miss the 8 for sure after the Raiders game. What is happening now is just a bonus. If they make it great, if they dont its not the end of the world. 17 yrs straight of finals appearances and 6 comps somewhat eases the frustration.

    How bout dem cowboys!

    Right, you couldn't have come up with a more original comeback?
    Most Cows fans thought the 8 was slipping 3 or 4 games ago...

    Broncos win plus Tigers loss and a result in Parra/Penrith = playoffs...who would've thought that after the 56-0 loss in Canberra?

    The Cowboys have really let this season slip through their fingers...so many winning opportunities squandered...and it comes to this, a win is paramount for them to stay alive for another week. Maybe one more Thurston encore here.

    Cowboys didn't let anything slip. O'Donnell has been hurt a bit this year and they lost Aaron Payne for the year. He's so underrated it's ridiculous. And to make matters worse his replacement is a bum. Since Aaron Payne got ruled out is when it all went sideways for them. No coincidence. I think they've one once or something without him.

    Matt Bowen is gone now too. Folau is supposed to be back this game. Brisbane to notch up a win and continue their charge into the eight.

    Hate to say it but the Broncos should win here. I can't imagine a worse outcome this season than Broncos and Manly going deep into the finals/OR 1 of them winning it, they're not that good (oh and I despise them too) and it just goes to show how even the comp is. Anyone who hits form at the right time can win this comp, no matter how undeserving. If Bowen won't play then its hard to see the Cowboys scoring more than a couple of tries, Thurston can't do it all himself. Even Penrith can win up there and we aren't that good. The Broncos are a good side at full strength (terrible at less), we all know the Broncos will win. Probably by 18 points
