10 day turnaround will mean we *should* be full strength.... Just worried it might be too long of a break

It is there for the taking, win this and we are in a good spot, looking like us and Titans for 7 & 8 with Manly and Eels fighting it out for 5 & 6. Injury free we should do it

All going good i think this is our 1st time for “full strength/best” team for the year (minus Edrick Lee).

I'm willing to back us into the finals if we win this week. Titans have to get past Souths then Melbourne (as well as us), and the Raiders have to get past Melbourne, Manly and the Roosters. It's legitimately on a platter, and completely in our control as far as I can see. This is exactly the kind of situation we manage to fumble completely, so lets hope we can at least take a step forward in that respect.

This match and the Titans match in a couple of weeks are absolutely critical. What's more critical is that we improve into the finals, rather than limp. We're 2 wins on the trot, but we need to get up some legitimate momentum to try and get past week 1.

I see a lot of comments saying that this is a must win (or titans being a must win) because it will garuntee a spot in the 8...

I see it as a must win, because if we can't beat either of those teams, we don't deserve to make the 8, and will be just making up the numbers as we were last year

I’m at the point where I don’t really care what happens come semis. I feel there is more to be gained from stringing together the back end 6 games as a platform for next year’s run.

Of course, it’s not mutually exclusive, and a 5 or 6 game streak gets us in this year, but I think we all agree that we (and all 5-8) are cannon fodder for Melbourne, Penrith, etc.

A strong finish keeping our players fit is essential in the longer term. We need to win these games and try to get our combinations a solid base to work on in the off-season.

Sharkies without Graham is always beatable. Graham is a bit of a talsiman when fit. Moylan being absent doesn't hurt either. Had found some great form this year.

We have won 4 of the last 6. If we can win the rest, that's 8 of the last 10 games of the regular season. That's a great platform to build on.

Proving we got the better Brailey is important but I hope we make Ramien look like dirt. Hate him to the core.

Is that the best team we have put on the paddock all year? Maybe the past two years?

Where will Sasagi play when he comes out? Backrow?

Easily the best team we've named this year. Sasagi off the bench is a bit of a head scratcher but I guess he has utility value off the bench. We learn't last week what losing an outside back looked like for us.

Really really really excited for this game. This is our knock-out semi-final game for mine.

So expect some rage if we turn in some shit! Haha
