    At least it won't be 3 in a row... surely the Titans won't put 50 on Melbourne.

    Who else do we have? Tongue, Buttriss, McIllwrick all injured, Waddell deemed ineligible by the archaic and corrupt NSWRL... wonder if we can get special dispensation to bring Gorrell or Aubusson up from the local competition...

    They'll probably play McCrone at hooker, Dugan at 5/8 and Massey at fullback, unless he is injured or something.

    If Orford really is fit to play then it shows what an utter joke his signing was. He should be first choice halfback. Unless the club has decided he is just a backup for Williams... probably on about five to six times what Williams is being paid.

    Massey limped off injured as well. Orford is apparently having scans (yet again) and may not be fit either.

    There's speculation that McCrone could play hooker with Mick Picker coming into the halves.

    Ouch just seen Canberra's lineup. Missing Tilse, Vidot and Buttriss. Got smashed last week.

    I'm revising my prediction (last week I was caught out by being too conservative) from Souths up 30-10 to Souths about 40-6.

    More confident about this game than I was the Eels game.

    Throw in a "we got this" BM - you might get one right for a change...

    I was right with the Eels, infact i was too lenient to them when i predicted the score. I'll be right again.

    We got this.

    Our real test will be the final 3 weeks, this game is just to get within sight of the 3 teams on the edge of the 8. We run down at least 1 of them in the final 3 weeks.

    This season has been an absolute disaster regarding injuries. Right now, we have 7-9 first choice players out injured. Quite impressive that we can roll out that talent considering we have this horrendous toll, and is indicative of what could've been had we not accrued so many players in the casualty ward.

    Hopefully the wankers at the NSWRL do not refuse our proposal in having Travis Waddell become eligible.

    Knowing us, we could come out on Sunday and destroy the Bunnies or it could be the complete opposite and we get annihilated. I'm going to guess it'll be the latter.

    Being injury ravaged sucks. We've had to deal with it all year, and our best forwards still sit in the stands
