    We're nowhere near Panthers, Storm or even the Roosters. We've got a favourable draw though that we need to take advantage of and get as many winnable games in the bank as we possibly can. First goal is to win each week and give ourselves the best chance of booking a berth in the semis. If the boys let their thoughts stray too far ahead or start worrying about future games against the top teams or SOO contention they'll bring themselves undone. Focus on the job at hand.

    Wont surprise me if the NRL owe the Roosters a few favours...especially after those long lunches in the company of the Godfather.

    "Beware the wounded animal"

    "A desperate team is a dangerous team. It's like a wounded animal, fighting for their last breath"

    ANZAC day and the Rossters will be primed, no mattwr who they put on the park. Assume they are battered and beaten and they will batter and beat us.

    We also face a desperate Warriors tomorrow and that should be our focus.

    Let's not put the cart before the horse.

    Your quiet right about the media having their knives heating in the fire , waiting to apply them to the Dragons bellies at their first stumble .

    Fortunately Griffin will have the teams mind on the job at hand , being against the Warriors tomorrow and not looking ahead , as we supporters have a bad habit of doing .

    I am glad that Morris may not be playing , in fact the NRL should penalize him a couple of games for showing that big bluudy rump of his to the unfortunate viewer .

    The rorters will do anything to win a match , but that was going just too far !

    I’m sure the boys aren’t looking past the Warriors game they are no easy beats.

    But I win tomorrow & we’re taking a lot of momentum into ANZAC Day. Should be Moose’s debut game to reap destruction on the soft Rorters pack.

    The boys only need to look back to last Anzac Day, Roosters with something like 9 first string players out, ripe for the picking, yeah, nah.

    Watch us get a little more attention from the Match Review Committee this week. We'll have a couple of players with charges to answer to. Usually happens the week before our ANZAC game

    Roosters get 2 days extra rest and warriors won't be a walk in the park that's for damn sure.

    Melbourne may have softened up The Roosters Mickey but to be honest on our performance today they will have to be marshmallows

    Looks like the Warriors have softened us up for the Roosters.....and they have a longer turnaround.

    All I stated was that the Roosters post their game w Storm are punch drunk - ripe for the taking - I wasn’t talking about the Warriors game as that was a different kettle of fish.. you must remember Roosters lose another 2 forwards this week incl JWH and we get back Hunt, Lawrie and a 2nd start up Josh McGuire.. If we are ever going to beat them it’s this week.. it’s up to us now..won’t be anymore vulnerable than they will be next week.

    New week - new day and a new beginning , time to shake off yesterday’s bad - but almost predictable result .

    The Dragons need to get together and talk about the bad aspects of the loss to the Warriors , preferably watch it in living colour . Listen to the coaches and realize that they are going up against a very good team in the Roosters who will be hell bent to reestablished themselves as one of the NRL’s top guns .

    Anzac Day itself will bring a far better effort from the Big Red V , however it would be far better if they stood proud on the day and take not only the Anzac Day Trophy itself , but also the two ever so valuable competition points back home .

    We need to get back on the bike and reproduce the form we showed against Parramatta.

    How does this bold statement look now. Roosters likely full strength except Keary
