    Penrith have had by far the easiest draw in the NRL so far. They've only had 3 games against top 8 opponents. On the other hand the Dragons have had the hardest - they're still the yardstick IMO.

    Certainly looked better than us last night. Minus some of there better players too.

    Long season, injuries etc. But contenders this year.

    Smashed Merge and gave your plods a 14 point head start. Neither side worries me like Melbourne

    Our youth policy is now paying off and our depth singings this season are filling in as needed keeping the starting 17 under pressure to perform.

    I still don't think we've got full value out of Gagai yet, so there's definitely upside there when he and GI are back from Origin.

    At the start of the season I was hopeful for a strong season and a possible top eight finish with Sutton just getting to his 300 games with more games from the bench.

    I like most supporters are pleasantly surprised with how well we are doing this season. Are we premiership contenders? Not yet and who wants that tag anyway.

    It might be Souths and the Roosters playing in the Grand Final. Winner gets control of juniors from Randwick and Coogee.

    If they don't win in from here it will be the biggest fail in World history

    We already won that. Roosters have no juniors. Coogee and Randwick are Rabbitohs territory

    You are flat wrong. Roosters have juniors in Clovelly, Bondi and Paddington. Victor Radley is a graduate of Clovelly Crocodiles. Roosters deserve to have Coogee and Randwick back as well.

    All of those take part in Souths Juniors comp because Roosters and their Leagues Club don’t want to put any money into junior development. How do Roosters deserve two suburbs that Souths Juniors have spent half a century developing? Meanwhile Roosters are happy to let Rugby and AFL jump into thee little territory they do have and gain a major foothold

    Besides this was surveyed a few years ago and Coogee, Randwick and even Clovelly are majority Rabbitohs supporters

    scoring 42 points tonight was great, giving up 24 was not. But a win is a win. It's now seven straight wins for the team.

    As I said letting in 24 points was not great

    They’re definitely a serious contender. Personally I still have Penrith, Saints and Storm ahead of them. Attack is slick however that defence won’t win you a Premiership.

    Also had virtually no injuries to contend with this year.
