    Bad time to be playing them, but if we are going to make the finals, these are the games we have to win and win well. On what both teams have produced over the past three weeks you would think we are specials, but every week is a brand new week and with no Benji I am certainly not confident. At some stage we have to start winning games rather than trying to stop the other side from winning games if you get my drift

    It is a bad time to play them. They will be fired up and the tanker may put in a good game.

    Its a given if there is a once in a lifetime ref call it will go against us .
    Its a given if there is a golden point game we will lose.
    Its a given Cambo Stadium cant draw a crowd .
    Its a given we will never recieve any favours from the NRL.
    It has given players injuries always last longer then estimated.
    Its a given that opponent's star player will always return just in time to play us.
    Its also a given we will play a losing side into form :(
    Conceding tries before and after half time have seemed to have disappeared for now , as has beating the rorters.. just hope we can add the last given about playing sides into form can also be abolished.

    this is a crucial game for us. in round 5 we play the storm, no way we beat them twice in 4 weeks. if we lose this chances are we're 2/3 and the great start to the year is already eroding away. if we're going to make the finals beating a team who os 0/3 and terribly low on confidence is something we HAVE to do.

    So bloody true !!

    It’s also a given we will snatch a loss from jaws of victory.

    It won’t surprise me if Gutherson makes an early return on Easter monday !

    We’ve got more chance of winning comp than Kev being MOM.

    In all seriousness we really need to win this one convincingly coz parra have been terrible & r a heck of a lot weaker than our 3 tough opponents thus far.Plus we owe this mob as they were lucky against us last yr & the oxygen thief moses betrayed us in same game last yr when he tanked it.

    We usually fire up for this game even when playing like busteds. I still have faith we can give them a touch up, despite the injuries.

    Hopefully a big crowd on board and Lawrence and the boys learn how to hold on to a ball this game.

    Jarryd Hayne is set to miss two to four weeks with a hip flexor injury. Bevan French is rated a 50/50 chance of playing this week after suffering a shoulder injury. Josh Hoffman and Kane Evans also picked up injuries in a nightmare evening for Parramatta. Tepai Moeroa received treatment during the game but was not a concern post-match.

    Clint Gutherson (knee, round 8)
    Brad Takairangi (eye socket, round 10)
    Jarryd Hayne (hip flexor, round 5-7)
    Bevan French (shoulder, round 4/5)

    Smash Moses early and he’s out of the game. The little merkin hates the tough stuff

    I’m more worried about Norman

    Hayne is one of those players that saves his 3-4 good club games a year for us so I’m glad he’s also out

    I can't think of a better way to bounce back than putting the slime to the sword.

    Beat Roosters, Souffs, Dogs and Eels all twice + a top 8 birth and I might consider Ivan Cleary a god

    Much like being a Tigers fan, LU is a long a torturous existence.
