    If Brisbane lose and the Tigers are a chance to sneak into the eight. Melbourne by 30

    If Brisbane win and the Tigers season is officially over. - Tigers by 12

    The only question here appears to be whether Bellamy elects to rest key players.

    If they beat Sharks tonight and secure top 2 finish - I think Bellamy will take the opportunity to rest those carrying niggling injuries or in need of a rest.

    Justin O'Neil would be one. Hoffman another. Jason Ryles may also be rested to ensure he's fresh for finals.

    I doubt Bellamy will rest all of the big 3 - we all saw what happened in Round 26 last year - he's clearly wanted to build momentum not demolish it - but I think some will be rested.

    Cam Smith to play off the bench is my tip, and Billy and Coop rested with 20 to go.

    No one will be rested. Bellamy learnt his lesson last year.

    Storm have only just come off a very ugly losing streak, shouldn't be resting players at this point. Especially since there is still a minor premiership up for grabs if the Doggies somehow manage to lose to the Roosters (I know, but stranger things have happened).

    A win at Leichhardt is exactly what Melbourne need heading into the finals.

    Players may not be rested but I reckon he will use Smith off the bench and will drag Slater late in the game.

    Storm will win

    Hopefully the team shows some heart for Big Gareths last game.

    Smith to get 13 clean line breks by running through the gap between Blair & Ioseffa

    I think Tigers fans have a right to have a defeatist attitude. Ink like myself is a passionate tigers fan but fed up with the shit we have been served this year.of course we will be both cheering our team come Saturday at 7.30 but I have zero faith in them even competing in this game.

    None of us think we deserve to be in the finals but if on the off chance we do make it I know I'll get excited and watch them go around hoping for some sort of miracle run.

    All week I've been saying I'm not going to go Saturday. But at about 5.30 Ill realise I don't want to spend the night with my stupid girlfriend asking questions like 'How many points are a goal worth' and end up at the game.
