    Cows get a chance tonight against the pretenders. Surely the cows can win it without Matt Scott and Thurston.

    I'd be happy if we stayed within 12 points tonight

    I'm not saying they're not good players (Gillett too), but as isaiah says, they have some forward depth, and Broncos don't rely on forward dominance. But the Cowboys lose half their spine (at least, maybe more) to Origin.

    And if the Storm only lost Smith or Cronk or Slater, that would be a big loss for them, let alone all 3. It's the concept of a pissing competition comparing clubs that are depleted from Origin that I find ludicrous.

    It will of course depend a lot on when the team's byes are, and which Origin depleted sides you play. The whole period is a bit of a farce, and frankly is unfair to the Storm, Broncos and Cowboys (and last year the Sharks, previous years the Roosters have contributed a lot), or whichever team gets hit badly with selections.

    Well they have put on 12 points since you posted, so he might want you to post earlier in the future.

    bet you had a bit of a nervous dribble there

    the only way you'd look more stupid would be if we had got up

    If they play like that with so many out(and Feldt derping it up)they are a top 4 chance when they get some players back. Can't afford to lose too much ground though with Origin likely to bite. BTW. Asiata looks good at half.

    If we make the eight with no one but Scott out, then I would be feeling pretty confident about shaking things up.

    Still a superb forward pack and the best halves combo in the business pulling the strings.
    Meanwhile, isaiah continues pulling his knob.
