    To be fair I've always got the impression Kane is the kind of bloke who struggles with his own name...

    Yes, I think the ideal solution is for Souths to maim the Storm for us.

    22 rounds in a row that we have featured in the top 8.

    Currently tie 5th.

    Come at me f**kers. :fire:

    Dylan Brown is just...wow.

    He's such a gun - that kick for Sivo's try, under the pressure we were...ice cold.

    He's a special talent.

    His defence today was sublime. Big or small, he just stopped them. Special kid this one.

    We only need 2 from 8 results head to head with Tigers and Sharks to go our way and we’re in finals. And they play each other in final round so one of those head to head results is already assured

    A draw isn’t an assured result!

    With the demise of Alliance, it seems that there will be home games up for grabs all the way to the Big Show. From wiki...

    Then it’ll be one of each of the head to head results required

    Well there’s lots of permutations of those 2 from 8 results. The simplest is just for us to win next 2 games

    Assuming we can hang onto 6th or even 5th, we might just be entering the second week of the finals for the 2nd time in 3 years.

    Even if we lost the next 2 rounds, we are in the 8 until at least Round 23. If we lose in Rnd 24 as well, we drop to 9th and need to beat Manly at BankWest to make it back into the 8.

    So one more win and worse we can finish is 8th. BIG BIG improvement from 2018 Wooden Spooners.

    In the true spirit of this thread, I have the final ladder looking like this and us having BankWest finals all the way to the Big Show.

    We just need to win all our games and have the Dogs continue to be giant killers for us.
