    It's quite depressing that our season is effectively over....and it's only f**king May!

    I can still find stuff to cheer for though. Still got to beat the Dogs and finish above them on the ladder.

    Season not only done but I can not see us winning a game. And it all stems back to shitting ourselves 2nd half first game of season. Gunco is the only one who doesn’t look physically, mentally and emotionally shot

    Agreed. At some point we will score back to back converted tries and land a field goal.

    ....right before we leak 5 unanswered converted tries. 30-13, it’s an improvement on tonight.

    2 from 13

    as at 4/6/18

    11 more wins needed minimum, from 11 matches.

    Gets us to 28 points (26 points maybe sneak us in?)

    Cowboys in Darwin next


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



    in a simple nutshell we need 15 wins in a row to be crowned 2018 Premiers

    Cometh the day cometh the team, we are getting some troops back from now on
    Surely things will turn very very soon??

    Probably should mention we still have Souths twice considering they are one of the form teams

    Of our remaining games I think there's three we could possibly win. So if we get one or two of those and squeak home against the bye then we will finish with 8 or 10 points. Has any team made the finals with 10 points?

    Thanks. So one team in the first two years. At that rate well over 50 teams would have done it by now.

    At least back then we knew we had a shitty team and didn't expect anything from them
    We are coming off a top 4 finish last year, so it's not stupid to think we would be going better than we are.
    I mean, if not a top 8 finish, then at least a couple more wins than we have had so far.

    Our worst finish in recent memory was our 5-win season in 2013 under Ricky Stuart.
    Can we beat that? At the moment it seems unlikely.

    Just need two wins to avoid the spoon... and hope the dogs don't win another game.
    Beat the dogs and Titans, spoon avoided. Titans can at least score points though, just can't defend worth a damn.

    If we find a way to finish above the Dogs this year, I will be celebrating like we have won a GF.

    Not that I know what it's like to celebrate a GF. :(
