Silly Gazza. I see hes selected in Flegg this weekend.What happened to The Chook Joshy? Is he injured. Haven't seen him listed for a while.
playing this week, think he was also picked for a NSW cup recently but pulled outWhat happened to The Chook Joshy? Is he injured. Haven't seen him listed for a while.
Salmon ruined our salary cap for a decade ffs! We’re subsidising his Penrith contract to the tune of $300k/year. Massive failure by our club.
Maybe it's having a bye week, but when you step back and look at things we're in equal fourth. Provided we beat South we're also a reasonable chance of becoming fourth on for and against - especially when the Broncos lose to the Cowboys this week, and the Sharks lose to teh Strom the following week.
We are four points clear of the closest teams (Souths and Dragons coming equal seventh) and also have one game in hand compared to the team coming third (Cows). On our day we can beat any of the teams in the top three, and if we finish the rounds in the top four we can even afford to lose against one of them in week one.
I've done the ladder predictor, and if we split the two games against Souths I have us finishing equal 4th with the Sharks, who are on comparable for and against. I have the Raiders pipping Souths for the final top 8 spot. We lose to Storm in fianls week one, beat the Sharks week two, face the Panthers in week three to come up against the Storm again in the Grand Final. It's doable...
I feel we're more likely to be Premiers this season than we have ever been at any stage in the last 20 years, with the exception of 2005.
That doesn't neccessarily mean we'll end up winning the comp this season, but we are better chance than we've ever been for 17 years.
Hardly an ambush in a semi-final.
That reads like some of the speculation posted in this forum any time in the past 2 or 3 weeks.... Dunno if "Masked Panther" is just regurgitating what he's read here or if there is any substance to it... Or maybe a bit of both!!
