    Now now. Your boys defended extremely manfully last game, without ever looking like troubling the scorer after the 7th minute. If they do that again, they won't have to score many to win. It is the time honoured Warren Ryan strategy. A low scoring Wests win here.

    That’s how I see it too. I reckon it’ll be something like 16-8 in a game we always look better but never kick away or are convincing in.

    Dogs have put in ever game this year but just don’t have the cattle to score enough points to win games.

    We should have a full squad to pick from for the first time this year. No excuses. If are going to challenge for the 8 have to win this.

    If our defense is on song I can’t see dogs scoring anymore than 2 tries. You’d think we d have more than 2 tries in us as we appreciate playing a team near the bottom of the ladder, my concern is the dogs like to get into a bit of a scrap which we haven’t been handling well lately

    I think we have the cattle, just not the consistency of game plan. Often we'll start playing expansive footy which has troubled teams with weak edge defenders (e.g. Ramien last night) but then revert to Des-ball (one-out rubbish) for long periods. Foran taking on the line (which is when he's at his best) is increasing and once he becomes confident we'll start scoring points more often.

    If we can keep playing decent footy and not fall into old habits for 80 minutes then we should start winning games, otherwise it's a long season.

    Tigers named their strongest 1-17 including finally f**king off rochow. If we lose this then I think put a line through us for top 8

    Tigers, but if they lose this, it'll be a long road back mentally.

    Agree

    Swap Benji and Reynolds and I think this is what Ivan wanted from round 1. Sadly injuries prevented happening before round 12 it but amazing effort to be 6-5 before we got to see it.

    Tiges were good in defence against us last week. Can't see the Dogs in this one.

    Tiges 24-12.

    Dogs seem to be improving and the Tigers have gone off the boil. I'm picking Canterbury.
