Our problem vs the Cowboys was the same as it had been all year - ball control and critical errors.
Our forwards were suffocated because of half a dozen errors in our own half. Plus the two kick offs out on the full.
We dumb. We super dummmb.
That's our problem. We could do with a metre eating prop off the bench but all things considered I rate our pack as one of the best in the comp.
Behind the Cowboys and Melbourne but the equal of any other.
You’re being too kind to your front row. They went missing which diminished the on field authority needed in such a big game.
Because of that I couldn’t have your pack that high, definitely not higher than ours.
Don't get me wrong, JWH and in particular Dylan Napa were disappointing in the Prelim. Well Napa was disappointing all season actually.
And we could do with a LOD style signing like in 2013.
But I still wouldn't call our pack a weakness as some are suggesting.
Cordner, JWH, Napa (play like its Origin!), Liu, SST, Aubusson. I expect Nat Butcher to step up too to fill out the pack along with Tetevano and Matterson.
I'd probably have the Dragons pack slightly ahead, too. But there's not much between them. Same with the Sharks.
If we can complete at 80% in the big games then I think it's good enough.
agree...played some real dumb football at times. But so much talent there... Just got to get that dumb stuff out of their game. I expect Roosters and Cowboys to be the teams to beat next year.
I think it'll be the same top 4 except cowboys in for broncos. I can see Broncos dropping a bit next year. Losing Hunt and Blair will hurt them and no back up half with Benji gone if Kodi doesn't work
In no particular order
Cowboys to win the comp.....
Swap the Dragons and Broncos and I think you are spot on. It's nice to see a bold prediction though.
Nope top 4 for you guys....
Says the mong who predicted Souffs to finish 5th this year.
brisbane to be "kicking down the door" to the top 8
the bottom 8....
Can see the Eels dropping... I didn't bash my wife Radradraaaa accounts for 20+ trys a year basically with freakishness.

Spoon : Bulldogs.
Last year I got about 2 out of 8 (predicting the Tigers for my dark horse was brilliant imo )
So yeah whatever. But I do think the Panthers will improve the most, especially after signing Maloney.
