Dogs are on an upward trajectory and should be too much in this one

Dogs deserved favorites, however I think we went ok the last 2 weeks, just hopelessly outclassed by the best 2 teams in the comp. Will be good for us to come back a level. When you look at who the two teams have played this year the Dogs has been considerably easier than ours. Their wins against 2 bottom 4 sides then a Roosters team with 11 players.

We desperately need to find some attack. At the moment its basically Api or nothing. Maybe kick to the 6'5 winger we debuted last week.

Not getting a howler from the Bunker would be nice too.
