    Souths next four games are against teams outside the top 8. So I think you can also say July premiers

    Bunnies fans should be happy, they’re a damn good side playing footy that is light years away from the junk they played under Maguire. The 2 late tries will serve as a warning that they aren’t home & hosed yet.

    I honestly don’t care too much what we are doing right now. We honestly were even more dominant than this in 2013 but it didn’t matter because we weren’t peaking at finals

    Let’s see how mature they are about that. We can easily get ambushed by a lower placed team shaping up to us

    Agree. I thought our last 5 min tonight was ordinary. It should be a wake up call for the team.

    We have won our last 5 straight against some good opposition. But that doesn’t guarantee anything for the next four, regardless of the opposition.

    I decided to watch 2014 Premiership again. Honestly we are nowhere near that level right now, so still lots of improvement needed even if we are looking good

    Souths are trash until they prove themselves against the Eels

    BM's wisdom is the weeks before this one showed we have the top end talent to go all the way, yesterday showed we also have crucial depth to withstand the origin headaches as well as any potential future injuries.

    We are unquestionably the form team of the comp. Dominating forwards, the best hooker in the game, halves who control the game, and outside backs who know how to score plenty. Both attack and defense, we have the best attack in the game and a top 4 defense.

    In my mind the premiership contenders are Souths (best attack), Panthers (best defense) , Dragons and Storm. In that order.

    I can smell premiership number 22.

    We started that season 1-3 and after 10 weeks were still only 5-5. We were mediocre in those early weeks. We are much closer to premiership form now than we were at this point in 2014.

    You're right we have room to improve but we're closer than any other team to going all the way.

    Souffs are Penrith-lite. Very similar side just not as good in any area
