The Eight is set, you'd think, apart from the Sharks who have the Warriors looking good behind them. They have a good buffer though, with four competition points and a healthy f/a in their favour. Surely the Knights will do the Warriors a favour on Friday night? Before that we have the hapless Broncos v redhot Panthers. Brisbane has become embarrassing. Rabbits v Storm. How good are Souths and, in particular, their recent good run of form? Canterbury v Titans, c'mon Dogs. This is the chance to hand the 'spoon to Brisbane. The neutrals want that. Manly v Tigers. Two also-rans, unfortunately. The comp is usually for the better when these two are going good. Raiders v Roosters, match of the round. It would still make an appealing GF, with Canberra winning of course! Warriors v Eels. How good will this be if the Sharks lose? Oh, and please, only Eels fans want to see Fergo played back into form, on such an important occasion for the Warriors. We conclude with the Cowboys hosting the Dragons. Both those sides will avoid the 'spoon, but that's the merest consolation for two clubs that have won premierships relatively recently.
