    Looks about right.

    Will be very interested to see if Penrith string together 3 or 4 games though.

    The Broncos are shithouse, they're not staying in the top 4.

    They lose to Manly on the weekend if T.T doesn't go off.

    That wouldn't surprise me.
    Storm wouldn't blow it again ...especially against the Sharks.

    They won't beat us, we have their measure.

    If we played Manly or Titans, we'd lose for sure.

    Like the look of the top 5. Would add Cowboys in to make the Top 6 and the balance fighting out 7&8. This will mirror most seasons where it's 3 or 4 teams scrambling to make the 8

    Manly and Cowboys are top 8 certainties too IMO. Hard to see any of the current top 7 dropping out for the teams not yet in the 8. Would take a big injury to change that.

    Raiders. Eels. Panthers and Titans fighting for one spot. Eels have the edge right now. But those other sides can be hard to stop when tgey build momentum.

    Storm winning the Shield will do me ol'mate, if anyone is going to win 2 in a row Flanno would be the perfect shitstir . . . I'd be tempted to use his noggin as my avatar for a week

    I think this week Panthers/Raiders will be important for the 8. If we win it will be 4 in a row with a bye to come and our strongest team on the field finally. I can see Raiders getting some confidence as well seeing as they only went down by 1 point to Manly previous game.

    Yeah, if my mob (Eels) are fair dinkum a Finals spot is there for the taking. We've got Dogs twice, Newcastle, Tigers and Titans all as home games to come plus the Storm without Chambers, Slater (maybe), Cronk and Smith before Origin III

    With troops returning from injury, the platform is there to launch a play for a finals spot. 5 more wins will get us to 28 points, but with F/A posing a potential issue, 6 wins is probably what we need.

    The race is that tight,for and against is going to be the eventual influence in the very last round.
