    Dragons are trash and will be lucky to dodge bottom 4 at the rate they're traveling. Penrith on the other hand are off the canvass and swinging.

    These useless sacks of shit keep surprising us with more and more inept performances.

    I’ll start caring again when Mary gets sent to he glue factory.

    Someone in the Panthers forum said you guys have a history of breaking our winning runs after 6 wins. You can't lose.

    That'd be me. If we could attack like the Raiders and actually turn it into points maybe we could lay on 3 or 4 tries before halftime and the Dragons would just give up as they did yesterday. But we don't, and so the Dragons will be still in the game in the second half and this will lift them, seeing how its a must win game. This is a danger game, no two ways about it.

    You blokes should talk to the raiders fans from yesterday’s game day thread who also thought their team was capable of out-derping the Dragons.

    Mary’s got a plan. And it’s written on an etch-a-sketch.

    Bow down before your betters.

    Yeah but we are kings of bad discipline. This will be the unstoppable force meeting the immovable object of derp.

    We’re in the bottom 4 right now. With your shithouse team.

    What the f**k has happened to our once great club? We have fallen below even the Darius broncos.

    Always a game to look forward to. Plus Dragons fans are usually a good bunch to banter with - possibly because we share the same pains of continuous mediocrity.

    Would love to see a huge win just like in 2018 at home. However, it will most likely end up a close one, either way.

    Panthers have won 6 in a row. But they're really not much better than they were in the 6 losses in a row.

    The biggest difference is we are putting in defensively for 80 minutes. Which has been enough the past 6 weeks against depleted and/or poor sides

    But our attack still sucks. We still have terrible handling. We still give away alot of penalties and put alot of unnecessary pressure on ourselves. Until we faced the Titans, all of our wins were very tight and not over until the siren went.

    Dragons should be right in this game. I think Panthers will scrape in another 19-18 win. With Jimmy being the difference.

    We still have to consider that the young replacements who have filled in for the players who have left the club, or who were injured,are doing an admirable job, You still cannot substitute for experience as displayed in our win last week o was the reasoning why it took a little while to get firing.

    The difference this week is that The Jimmy will be fresher as will Cleary. And with Penrith playing at home, the Dragons will have to have at least an 18 point lead at 1/2 time to have a chance of winning.

    Panthers by 24-12.

    Hope my amusement at all the 'Sack Mary' posts on this forum doesn't come back to bite me. Even after 6 wins in a row I'm still not super confident going into games, because we still are prone to silly errors, penalties and we don't score freely even when having long periods in the opposition 20. The big difference compared to earlier in the year is to do with effort and the enthusiasm the rookies have brought to the team. Basically we are staying in the contest and grinding out wins, whereas before the errors killed our confidence and we just leaked tries. We had too many players playing mentally weak and that seems to have been fixed.

    On form we should beat the Dragons, but they still have 5 origin players. Even with Mary being a dud coach, it still surprises me how poor some of their performances have been. I'm not comfortable in a situation like this because I remember plenty of out of sorts teams suddenly playing well against us before. I'll tip us by 6.
