    As we have seen all season it seems there is 3 divisions.

    Top 6 - Eels, Panthers, Storm, Raiders, Roosters, Knights
    Middle 5 - Sharks, Sea Eagles, Tigers, Rabbits, Dragons
    Bottom 5 - Cowboys, Warriors, Titans, Bulldogs, Broncos

    Very rare have we seen teams win above there division, taking this into consideration, where should we finish taking we play anyone in our group we split points.

    Dragons (8) -14, Rabbitohs 1, roosters 0, Eels 0, Broncos 2, Titans 2, cowboys 2, raiders 0, knights 0, storm 0
    Rabbitohs (10) +26, Dragons 1, Broncos 2, Cowboys 2, Sea Eagles 1, Eels 0, storm 0, tigers 1, bulldogs 2, roosters 0
    Tigers (10) +58, Warriors 2, Knights 0, Bulldogs 2, roosters 0, panthers 0, sea eagles 1, rabbitohs 1, storm 0, eels 0
    Sea Eagles (12) -14, Panthers 0, Warriors 2, Knights 0, Rabbitohs 1, storm 0, Tigers 1, bulldogs 2, titans 2, warriors 2
    Sharks (12) +36, Broncos 2, Eels 0, Titans 2, Panthers 0, Cowboys 2, Knights 0, warriors 2, roosters 0, raiders 0

    Projected points

    Dragons 8 to 15
    Rabbitohs 10 to 19
    Tigers 10 to 16
    Sea Eagles 12 to 22
    Sharks 12 to 20

    Its going to be tight, we need to ensure beat those bottom teams and just jag one win from Eels, panthers, Knights, Roosters or Raiders and we are in

    Its splitting the points when playing in your division, not tipping draws

    The kinigits def not in top 6 after today.
    Have lost 3 hookers for the season. Brayley. Mccullough. Watson.

    Theres a clear top 5 and the rest can be grouped a number of ways.

    With moylan duges and ramien we are high in the group and could threaten some of the top 5...... Without we could be beaten by anyone.

    So do we forfeit ahead when we play someone higher than our division to save on potential injuries?

    I would be more likely to rest and of our stars if carry niggling injury against the better clubs, to ensure we have them against teams we can beat before finals

    We'll win it all! After a wake up call by the Panthers a few weeks ago we are Slowly building momentum minus a fair few of our best players and piling on the points. Flanno ball is long gone and i like it!
    Rarely have we had the same side or spine on the park two weeks in a row yet we are winning by big scores and flying under the radar.

    Top up your Neds accounts while they are matching dollar for dollar and dump it all on the lads! You've got to pump it up!!!

    I love the enthusiasm, I really do.
    The only issue I see here is that unless we fix the defensive issues it won't matter where we finish on the ladder. If we finish in the 8 we will be out in straight sets.
    Whichever two teams end up as 1st and 2nd on the best defence list, either one of them will win the comp.
    It is written
    It is the law
    We are a long way off the pace.

    Looking at points difference there's only a top 4. Raiders are similar differential to us and only 2 point ahead.
