    Ive stated on here a few times over the past few weeks that I wasnt getting to carried away with our wins ....BUT if we can replicate in particular that first 40mins against the Eels I will be getting excited.....based on that performance no team will hold any fears for us....as I said last night to win against packed opposition stadiums is a good testiment of our resolve, belief in our selves and game management.....well done Hook and staff for turning this club around and putting back some spirit and hope to not only our players but our supporter base as well

    Love your enthusiasm @Blood Shot Eyes . Lets not get ahead of ourselves...its a long season, with many unknowns eg injuries etc.... Definitely happier days...but lets wait until round 15 before making declarations like "based on that performance no team will hold any fears for us "...

    We are yet to play sides Like the Panthers,Roosters,Storm etc...with such a physical approach it is inevitable that injuries will occur that will test our depth, which is skinny compared to the sides I mentioned...

    Congrats to Griffin and the staff and all the Boys for showing passion in the jumper....hasn't happened for a while.

    Hey bro,

    Real deal or not, I am enjoying the footy being served out.

    Haven't said that for a decade.

    Premierships aren't won in April.
    Don't believe me? Just ask Mary.
    Still not convinced? Just ask any Parramatta fan.

    He probably thinks he set it up perfectly for Griffin and co. He is the master of delusion afterall.

    We are playing well but I feel we still need to improve a lot compete with other top four teams.
    Griffin and Co deserve credit for such a big improvement.
    I am also glad that Griffin is proving dickheads in the media wrong.

    He's probably clinging onto the hope that he still put on the best barbies for the boys. And that's something he hopes can never be taken away from him. ....... if only provided a bit more sauce....... or really cut the mustard.

    Agree with getsmarty - still a long road ahead of us and there shall undoubtedly be hiccups on the way , but for now let’s enjoy the ride along with the team , Griffin and his 2 amigos .

    Tru dat.

    I'm having a field day with a bloke at work who's a gummies fan.

    I even let him have the " Well, at least the Sharks can say they've finally beaten a top 4 team" line someone had posted in the gameday thread.

    It received a huge round of laughter from everyone in earshot.

    Happy days indeed...

    Can some of the smarter posters here tell me the difference between the first 6 games of 2018 and now ? Why won't we burn out ?
