    Yeah, Lomax for starters. Field would give us speed to burn instead of Flo. Matherson Johns looked good in the one game that I saw him play on the wing in 20's scoring multiple tries that day. He looks like he would go alright. But Aitken still wouldn't pass them the ball either.

    Given their problems of injury and poor form, there's no way that you can say that Brisbane and/or Cronulla are genuine semi finalists this year.

    That's the difference:

    Let me tell you the barometers here - it's not the Roosters, its not the Cowboys and its def not the Storm who are playing without a recognised halfback this year and CANNOT win the comp without one.. The barometers this year thus far are:
    PENRITH
    Tigers
    Warriors

    Beat them and we are a top 4 certainty if not already..

    It's funny isn't it. People will always find the negative.
    Dufty scores a beautiful individual try and its labeled selfish.
    Aitken bumps of Inglis to score and people say he can't pass.
    We win 6 from 6 and people say we haven't played any real opposition.
    All it will take are a few injuries to de-rail our season? No shit! The same can be said for all teams.
    I understand people being cautious and not getting ahead of themselves but if you don't celebrate the good times along the way winning the comp doesn't mean anything.
    My take- 6 from 6, an amazing start. We are playing like a team capable of going all the way.
    And I don't subscribe to the idea that until you play the best opposition you can't gage how the team is really going.
    We could beat warriors, roosters and storm then lose to raiders, titans and knights. Its all about momentum.

    While it's nice to be 6 and 0, I just can't get excited yet.

    Remember last year when we were on our early season run? After about Round 3 before each round we'd say, 'this is the one which will test us out'. We'd win that then say the same thing the next round,and so on.

    Yes, we passed all those tests, then from halftime Anzac Day it all went pear shaped.

    Now people (Gus) are saying, 'but Saints are a different team this year and they won't fade.'

    I'm going to wait until about Round 20 and I'll see where we are then.

    Maybe I'll entertain a bit of excitement then, or maybe it'll be, 'oh well, it's the Dragons, what did you expect?'.
