    I'm pretty sure we won't Moses go or sign Semi. Stranger things have happened but those 2 things arent going to happen. You heard it here first. Period.

    1 Storm

    2 Rabbitohs

    3 Roosters

    4 Raiders

    5 Eels

    6 Sea Eagles

    7 Knights

    8 Panthers

    9 Sharks

    10 Broncos

    11 Cowboys

    12 Tigers

    13 Dragons

    14 Warriors

    15 Bulldogs

    16 Titans

    PREDICTED FINALS SERIES

    First qualifying final: Storm (1) v Raiders (4)

    First elimination final: Eels (5) v Panthers (8)

    Second qualifying final: Rabbitohs (2) v Roosters (3)

    Second elimination final: Sea Eagles (6) v Knights (7)

    6 Parramatta Eels (20 points, 23 +/-)

    Formline (most recent first): WWWLW

    Remaining games: Sea Eagles (A), Warriors (H), Dragons (A), Knights (H), Titans (A), Bulldogs (H), Broncos (A), Sea Eagles (H)

    Key injuries: Waqa Blake (Round 20), Peni Terepo (suspension — Round 20), Michael Jennings (Round 21), George Jennings (Round 22), Ray Stone (Round 24)

    Analysis: There’s some crucial games on the run home which will determine Parramatta’s season. If they can beat the likes of the Sea Eagles, Dragons, and Knights, they well and truly deserve to play finals. They’ve been running hot and at the moment they look like a finals team ... the question will be consistency in the final two months.

    Predicted run home: LWWWWWWL

    Predicted finish: 5th (32 points)

    Mine is a disaster but generally happy to be proven wrong. I might still snag a couple before years end though.
    Any word on Bernies tenure? I understand his contract expires this year?
    MJC?

    I haven't looked back through the thread, but from memory Gleneel's predictions that the club would fold, the stadium would burn down and Brad Arthur would be arrested on animal molestation charges aren't looking too flash at the moment... Still time for one of them to happen I guess....

    You predicted us to finish last and are still unhappy with how we are going.

    I hope we continue to prove you wrong.

    So they see us only losing two more games, both against Manly?
    As much as I'd love to only lose two more games this year, I really can't see this happening.
    Happy to be proven wrong though.

    Yet they have Manly below us in 6th position. They obviously think we have an easier run home.

    Agree. But was it not hindy111 who predicted we would win 4/5. Did this happen. YES
    This prediction was made after we where in our slump.

    I reckon from now on end we most likely will win 4 of last 8. But at same time I think we can go undefeated.No reason we can't go into every game with chance of winning.
    We do not play Roosters,Souths,Storm or Canberra in Canberra. We are good enough to beat anyone else. Manly are very beatable if we turn up. Of the games left to play beating Manly Brisbane and Knights would be better then Saints,Dogs,Titans....

    I always thought we would go on a run from about rnd 13. It's a new team and it's gelling.
    Unlike Storm who are at peak we have a half finding his feet and 2 of our best strike weapons and centre pairing out.

    I'd say so. We play mostly team who are sitting out of the 8, plus Newcastle who seem to be on a bit of a slide. Manly look to be the most competitive team we will play, but as we all know we could easily lose to the Titans, Bulldogs or any of the other teams we are expected to beat.

    I haven't looked at Manly's draw but I could only assume they play much more difficult competition than we do on the run home.

    Ii agree, especially with the part in bold.
    We should be expected to win most of our games from this point. Problem is how the Eels have historically played when having expectations of winning leaves me (and probably most others) having a laugh at the thought of us only losing two more games.

    We have a pretty easy run home.

    As for Manly, I'm sure they'll beat us this weekend but I'd be surprised if we lost to them at Cumberland Oval.

    Dunno. Who creates the list? I know he hasnt been popular with some. My thoughts are he will move on at the end of his contract but if hes doing a good job then I hope he stays. Its gone pretty quiet on Markey O and Bernie. Thats not necessarily a bad thing Gronky.
