    Of the 17 that played for Cabra in their 34-20 loss to Wenty in RMC on Saturday, Brent Anderson has been elevated to NSW Cup, Kisi Taulani has the week off and the other 15 have been named in a 20 man SS squad to play East Campbelltown this week.

    Wenty had won 4 GFs in 5 years - since Chris went there they havent made one. Cabra won the GF and then Chris took over and havent made one since. Dave Norman runs Cabra now and used to drink with Chris on NSW Cup Rep team trips and they are mates so the job is Chris's as Wenty want him gone and will have Hutchinson who was at Mounties. Its a shame as Cabra need a clean out of players and new coaching IMO.

    The GF has come a week early in each of the last 2 seasons and ironically it has been due to the fact that the Premiers, Mounties failed to win in the first week of the finals, meaning that they met Wenty in the second last week and each time won by very narrow margins and then blew away inferior Asquith and St Marys sides in the fake GF's. This problem can only arise by having 8 teams finals.

    And what was the score 3 years ago when they got knocked out with ex NRL players such as Liam Foran and Nathan Smith in the spine?

    Be interesting to know how many Ron Massey cup players Cabramatta used today?

    Top 8 is sorted in both comps.
    Top 4 spots still up for grabs (4th spot)

    13 players from the side that lost to Wenty RMC last week played today in the loss to East Campbelltown by 10 points but a number of those 13 would not have played RMC earlier in the season, as over the last few weeks Newtown has called back all its players that have been with Cabra for most of the season.

    Regardless of how East Campbelltown finish the season, they should be pushed into RMC next season along with Asquith.

    Auburn and Cabra had the bye in Rd 23 so do they both get the 2 pts for the bye round too? Which would put Auburn on equal 28 pts with Blacktown and Concord Glebe. If so, dependant on the competitions Rd 24 & 25 byes, wins and losses, Auburn could possibly sneak into 5th spot heading into finals....... Not a bad turnaround considering they were helping hold up the bottom of the ladder a few months ago!!!

    I have been avoiding commenting on the RMC Rd 22 Mounties vs Auburn game as I don't want to sound like I'm whinging through team coloured tinted glasses.... BUT I can't not comment anymore because I was so appalled with how deliberately dirty Mounties played in the first half especially that I'm hoping I was not the only person on here that was there watching that game as I'd like your thoughts on the game too!

    Now I know for a fact that Mounties train their players to be dirty in defence especially when in the ruck and wrestling an opposition player to the ground, so I did expect it, but what I witnessed was absolutely not in the spirit of the game!!! The amount of deliberate dirty penalties called against Mounties in that first half and the copious amount of deliberately obvious penalties when Auburn had them camped on their try line late in the half were terrible and at least one or two sin-bins were a sure thing but for whatever reason the ref didn't send any Mounties players off, even after giving them a final warning and they continued to penalise!!! Which resulted in Auburn having to take 2 penalty goals before half time!

    I don't know if the ref had a word to Mounties at the break but they came out with a slightly minuscule better attitude in the 2nd half like they decided they actually wanted to play some footy but their first half tactics obviously had their desired effect on Auburn, taking out their sting in attack and resilience in defence while also rattling some Auburn players, especially their dominating try scoring centre Addison D, which allowed Mounties to control most of the 2nd half.

    However, Auburn made a late comeback in the 2nd half and came within 4 pts but Mounties got down and dirty again, even deliberately eye-gauging the Auburn fullback as he tried to score a try, and no sin bin for it either, Auburn just couldn't hold the same resilience they showed in the first half and allowed Mounties to score again and come away with the win.

    In hindsight Auburn did need the loss after a few wins on the trot to bring them back to reality leading into finals, but here's hoping they learn from it so if they do meet Mounties in the finals they're not only ready for it but they've learnt how to overcome it.

    @footyfeverforever the ladders posted were from prior to Round 23 - updated ladders below.

    RMC - each team will finish having played 18 games across the 25 rounds. St Mary's are more or less minor premiers unless Wenty can record two massive massive wins.

    The eight is decided apart from positioning 3rd-8th.

    Shield - each team will finish having played 22 games across the 25 rounds. BWSE are a *very* outside chance of eighth but would need two big big results themselves. Minor prem wide open between Mounties and Saints with Mounties in the box seat on F/A.

    As for the finals structure, the good folk at NSWRL advise that RMC, SS and ISP are all top eight same as the NRL.

    Blacktown SS need to win both games as well as Cabra lose both games and improve the relative F/A by 84 points. Blacktown won 4 of their first 5 games with a side roughly equivalent to their current RMC side and have then won only 2 games in the last 15 after all the players went to other clubs, so while the might beat Hills this week the chance of flogging Mounties will probably be redundant after Cabra play Moorebank on Saturday afternoon.

    Absolutely - was only pointing out that it was mathematically possible.

    In an extraordinary move, Asquith have forfeited to Mounties in SS, in a move that could cost them a place in the top 4.

    In contrast, St Marys have demonstrated their desire to win the SS by recruiting 3 experienced players from the Penrith A Grade for the end of season games. On the bench today are forwards Eddie To'o, who has played the season with the St Marys feeder team, Colyton (finished outside the top 5) as well as Pat Hollis, who has played both NSW Cup and Qld Cup and Luke Aitchison, who were both playing with Windsor, who were eliminated from the finals last week. In addition, ex NRL player, Sonny Tuigamala is back after a 2 month break.

    It was interesting watching their SS side (same day as RM v Auburn), not too dirty apart from one absolute moron #18 who was an average player at best but relished in the filth. But one the field they did not stop whinging and it was obvious why, their coach ( I am assuming it was) never shut up whinging about every single call the referee made, right or wrong.

    But your post leads me to what I saw at Cabra today, They were very dirty. Not all, their big hard working props played hard but fair as did a couple of others But there were some more intent on being thugs So much so I was questioning whether Cabra had signed a new deal with Melbourne. But it went beyond the head and the neck, to the fullback with a very dubious history punching players while they were held in tackles
    The funniest was the #16 who couldn't tackle trying to bait the Moorebank 5/8 who then turned tail and ran to the edge when the Props gave a bit of lip back to him
