    Amazing that we are even in any position to do this but here we are.

    9 games remaining:

    Titans (Home)
    Dragons (Home)
    Raiders (Home)
    Bulldogs (Away)
    Sharks (Home)
    Broncos (Away)
    Cowboys (Away)
    Roosters (Away)
    Knights (Home)

    We have a bye next week so we are technically on 16 points.

    6 wins takes us to 28 points which should get us close

    7 wins takes us to 30 points which would guarantee a spot.

    The other issue is our disgraceful differential. -93.

    We will need huge wins to level that out and we aren't known for scoring a lot of points.

    Broncos, Cowboys, Roosters away and Sharks at home will be the big tests.

    Broncos have the talent to be beat a lot of sides but they have been unusually shithouse this year. Not worried about them.

    Roosters/Sharks/Raiders look tough to me. Cowboys always a tough game away. Knights are like us and by round 26 who knows what that game will shape up to be.

    We need a big win or 2 because of our garbage PD I think, hopefully we come out and smash the titans after the bye.

    Amazingly though I think we have a shot to make the 8

    Need to increase our winning margins.

    Maybe that was behind our game-plan today? It was very expansive.

    Would've been a big win without the dodgy calls. Momentum swung in favour of the Warriors because of it which kept it close.

    28 points won't be enough given F/A.

    Only the Roosters of that lot have won more games than us. Broncos and Cows may be playing for pride by the time we meet them. Things are falling into place.

    Huge win by the Dogs today. We are equal 7th if you include our bye.

    The only fair way to order the table is win %. We are are now 7/15 (47%) which puts us 10th behind Wests/Sharks (50%) and ahead of Dragons (43%).

    Given the likes of Kikau & Naden are carrying niggling injuries, the Bye is a welcome bit of respite

    13 wins would nearly always be enough, even with a bad F/A.

    I believe we will make top 8. Then drop out in the second week.
