    Big week at work for me so I'm just copying and pasting Phil's comment from last week:

    "So next week.
    Warriors beat Rooster :)
    Manly beat Tigers
    Panthers beat Broncos
    Dragon beat Sharks

    Warriors move into the top 8.

    Don't get excited the refs will be briefed on this during the week and know what to do. :p"

    I'm actually going to my first game for the year too. The historic SCG, I don't think the Warriors have played there. Not a great ground for league of course, due to its shape.

    I hope the Chooks go in flat and give us an easy one!

    Game of the round has to be Storm v Raiders. A win by the latter would really shake things up.

    Marty looked in trouble pre game with his knee.
    The Brookvale high injury rate continues. The young Tiger no9 Liddle has done a knee 5mins in. Cannon balled by his own team mate.

    Warriors paying $5 to win. Sounds like a certainty. Have a pretty good record of 4 wins from last 5 games against them and handy away record this year.
    Hell what am i saying!

    Needed to tip Tigers, Broncos and Sharks.

    Also forgot the potential Penrose triangle.
    Raiders beat Warriors
    Roosters beat Raiders,
    Should mean Roosters beat Warriors, but Penrose triangle means Warriors beat Roosters.

    that looked ugly - no fault of Brookvale there - just awful luck... seems the kid has a history too

    They had me a bit edgy there. Especially at six-all, I had no confidence they'd be getting the job done, mostly in attack. Does Dessie use 'buzzwords'? If so, I'm sure 'execution', or lack of, would be rolled out post-game.

    A pretty good crowd on a freezing Thursday night at Brookie. I think they're sensing a decent end to the season.

    There might be ticks all the way apart from us! That'd be typical.

    Why not just tick us out of the comp? Oh, wait, that's another thread.

    Manly sealed the win with a try that involved a dodgy ptb from Tom T. The commentators were dead-set certain he should've been pulled up for it.

    Yeah 1 pass away from another 4-5 tries, Sironen was a bit out because he would have run the lines to finish off some of them

    Made me laugh in the commentary now they were saying we still have to prove ourselves in the next few weeks, already have the scalps of Storm, Raiders and souths in the bag

    Beating (or competing with) the Storm takes a big tactical, physical, emotional etc effort I reckon... still a hangover from that? Also, now focus on semis, no doubt Hasler has plans?

    Credit to the Storm though - they are f**king relentless, they seldom drop in intensity

    Yeah I’m thinking so, against the knights DCE took an intercept and pulled up halfway through the run with an empty tank. Also maybe a feeling of winding it back a bit for the last 3 games knowing that Raiders, Storm, Eels is a big finish to the regular season

    Advantage is Hasler has been here before so knows how to tune them

    If we win tomorrow can we officially stalk the Panthers too? I'd love that.

    Dragons beat Sharks, we beat Roosters, then what a game next week at Shark Park!

    That bed, and who's on it, could be a metaphor for the Warriors season, as it is, right now.

    I wish the old bugger well though. Manly have a great rapport with the NBs community.
