    I have a feeling Sharks will unleash here. Not confident

    Sharks put in their worst performance of the year Friday night, they won't do that again

    God I hope we get Mbye this week, if so maybe a chance

    Yep.

    This Cronulla belting will put the final nail in the coffin

    After today’s performance I wouldn’t be confident we’d beat titans or Canberra either

    I’m sure whilst ever it’s mathematically possible to make the 8 we will all b hopeful.However the writing has been on the wall since the knights game that we have some glaring weaknesses in our roster that will very likely prevent us from playing finals footy again.

    Sad reality is since the manly/Knights game we just haven’t been the same

    We ask why? That 1st half performance against Manly was the most complete I’ve ever seen from a WT team. Why can’t we play like that week in week out? Was it a fluke? Have teams just worked us out?

    Having a genuine hooker play the first 40 sure as hell helped.

    I'm just laughing because it's the state of mind we supporters have grown so used to having over the past decade. I still feel OK that we have a good coach and are in the early days of rebuilding. Definitely need to trade and upgrade a far number of the squad. Still, I get the disappointment that we are not performing as well as we were earlier in the season. It was good while it lasted.

    It certainly is turning out that the 1st 6 rounds were a false dawn !

    And if Thompson had rolled over just two inches further the tone here would be entirely different with us jumping to 6th spot
    Relax. ....halfway through so give it another month before hopping off

    Well we are still in contention for the eight unlike previous years when we have been trying to dodge the spoon,credit where credit is due the WT have improved and further improvements and wins will occur with astute signings.

    So they would have beat a side missing 5 of their best players?

    I thought the Roosters were bog average yesterday and the Tigers had more ball and close to their best 17 and still couldn’t win...

    I think the writing is on the wall... they are brave in defence but just don’t have the talent to get enough points... a score of 14 or so is not going to win you games most weeks..

    Can’t see that changing the rest of the year even with Mbye...

    Let’s see how they go away to the Sharks this week who might have a point to prove...

    The chook's attack was as lost as our's but their defence was great ..as was our's. I'm not saying a narrow win over them would have papered over the problems we have to fix only that we're part way through a process. Go and have a look at your car halfway through major crash repair. ..it looks worse than when they started!....and you can be sure we are undegoing a major crash repair. Also have a look in on the Panthers and Sharks forums from earlier on in the season...penrith supporters wanting Gould and Griffin gone....how about McGregor's rebuild?...how he survived long enough to see it through to this stage is amazing..at one stage they couldnt buy a try for how long? The things you point out are all fair enough and we may miss the 8 this year but you know that Cleary & Co won't be stopping there. We started this season as spoon favourites. I think an early Mbye and an increasingly match fit Reynolds will get us on the front foot again ..definitely. ...maybe...who knows ...enjoying the ride anyway.

    Yes they are going better than expected at the start of the season, but I allowed myself to get excited when they smashed Manly at Brookvale for the first time in my life and started a season 5-1 for the first time in god knows...

    Like I said though, I think reality is setting in now we are 7 weeks further along the path and I don’t think they are playing well of late...I’m hoping for improvement the rest of the season but not overly confident...

    Next year might be differtent but they are going to need more pace out wide from somewhere...
