    The problem for us there is who in the eight's gonna fall into a big enough hole to make room for us?

    We've got Storm, Rabbits, Roosters, Tigers, Sharks all on twelve points, meaning they each only need to win 5 out of 14 games to reach 24 points, so we'd be banking on one of them going for 5-9 ( win / loss ) and then lose enough PD for us to overtake them, or one of them going 4-10.

    That's without considering the Donkeys, Knights or Raiders improving enough to go 50/50 win loss or thereabouts.

    26 or better is where it's at. Which ignores PD, but if we manage to get to 26 points, that's an 10-4 result and PD will likely look after it's self.

    I think we can do it, I'm damn sure we won't though.

    2 from 11

    as at 21/5/18

    11 more wins needed minimum, from 13 matches
    Gets us to 28 points

    Broncos next week

    Mathematically we can do it
    but mentally and physically we are shot for the year


    We still need to play Souths twice
    Dragons twice
    Storm in Melbourne
    Brisbane in Brisbane
    Cowboys in Townsville
    Roosters n the last Round

    This should be changed to, ‘Avoiding the Spoon thread’ that’s all we should be worried about now

    Without looking at the draw, There are plenty of good sides we are yet to play. We should jag a few more (hopefully) but it's not looking good. We'll be lucky to avoid the spoon. Sad times.

    Dude did you used to have another name previously and opened up a new account?


    I’m starting to like your posts as much as Noise and a few others. This is rare. I cant cop most people on here.

    I did in the early 2000's. I can't quite remember and I did have a name change too. I think they were M'eels on Wheels and something else. No one spoke to me. It was a tough group to crack.

    11 more wins needed minimum, from 12 matches.

    Gets us to 28 points (or 26 with 10 more wins)

    Newcastle in Newcastle next week

    Mathematically we can do it but SEASON IS OVER if it wasn’t couple of weeks back. Now all we can be is a nuisance side.


    We still need to play Souths twice
    Dragons twice
    Storm in Melbourne
    Cowboys in Townsville

    We wouldn't be in this mess if Gary hadn't resigned. There, I said it.

    He might not have been the threadstarter we wanted, but he sure as shit was the threadstarter we NEEDED. I don't know about you but I'm becoming slightly remorseful about the ribbing he copped. I know to us it was just good fun but he obviously didn't see it that way.

    That's right, you don't know what you've got til it's gone. I would welcome him back with open arms and the promise of well wishes but those fans seem pretty angry.

    Maaate, I'm hearing you. I'd chuck in a few bottles of homebrewed IPA. Sadly, I don't think he can be bought so cheaply. Alas.

    What odds are you giving on us not winning any of those games?

    In all serious though point is well made
