Very important match, almost a must win game, they are behind is on ladder means we get further in front with a win, at home, next two are even harder

Only going to beat them if we can defend- they’ll beat us every day of the week in a shootout.

Last year we embarrassed them and they didn’t respond later in the season- let’s see if the boys can aim up after we were embarrassed by them earlier in the year.

This could be our last chance at a W for a little while, so we need to make it count. It's a bit of a rougher trot between this game and hopefully KP returning, so yeah... this win is worth a lot.

Same blueprint as the last month or so. Drag them into the trenches and out-effort them.

We’re going to need to try a bit more in attack to get the win here. Even with their outs the Dogs have been a pretty good defensive unit.

It’s interesting rewatching the highlights from our wins this season. Bradman does a lot for us. Hes clearly in the best shape he’s ever been in. The try against the tigers obviously showed his strength. But if you watch the dolphins game, he has a few moments (as well as getting burnt for a try) where he shows his speed and his strength. Highly recommend a rewatch on YouTube with eyes on Best
