    You're in a mood aren't you ?

    We improve from spoon to Top 8 all year, yet you refuse to concede that it's been a much improved year.

    You sad sack cat's bum face merkin you. [​IMG]

    There have been 4 teams who have never been out of the 8 all year. Storm, Bunnies, Raiders and Eels.

    never said we haven’t improved, I mean it’s hardly a great achievement improving on what we offered up last year. Just like I believe limping into the bottom half of the 8 isn’t hardly to get excited about either.

    Don't get excited but definitely be satisfied with it. It's a solid effort for our club. It may even be a sign that we are changing.

    Yes, Manly killed us in the ruck and our defence was terrible there!! It definitely needs to improve as it happens to often this year. And it was a poor performance.

    But a lot of Manly’s tries were down to poor individual efforts:

    - gutho let tommy steal ball mid air, but being fair it was tommy
    - Manu lazy in defence for another
    - Parry weak attempt on Parker
    - Sivo getting ball stolen mid air
    - 2 tries on Sivo’s side, were fairly weak defensive efforts

    Good chance with Jennings / Blake / Ferguson back we may have stopped a few of those tries (3 from Sivo’s and Parry’s one).

    6th with our squad is outstanding achievement.
    I mean 2 rookies in the spine and a rookie winger. Along with an average forward pack.

    You don’t think making the Finals is an achievement?

    Considering we’ve only done it once in the past decade, I’d consider it something to be happy about. Especially coming off a year where we finished dead last.

    Sure it’s better than coming last, but we are still just making up the numbers. Manly showed us on Sunday just how far off the pace we really are.

    I think you may be better off supporting the Storm.

    Just about every team other than the Storm and Roosters are making up the numbers.

    Yes. But on a neutural ground if you added MJ,Fergo,Blake and Terepo and took out Walker,Turbo,Suli and a bench forward is the result different? Heck even if they had those 4 and we had our 4 the result is different.
    On a neautral ground.the game is different.

    Everyone who makes top 8 is a chance. In any sport a bit of luck,form and injuries can stay a result. Finishing top 4 is the harder part.

    Do you reckon we might show them how far off the pace they are when we meet them at Bankwest in a few weeks?
