    Not necessarily

    Bulldogs offload a few more of their players eg Klemmer, Jackson, Morris will help us a bit

    and the likes of Manly, Tapai stranded in USA till October, Jake and Tom get kidnapped after origin 3 in Brisbane

    Im gonna live on the edge here and say top 14 is in our sights...

    I haven't kept a track of them but are the Morris twins still up for it? Surely, they've had their days in the limelight.

    They still go ok, though turning 32 in August

    Brett would be the better value
    still quite quick and safe
    can play wing or FB with ease

    I think Jackson would provide some much needed leadership in this team.

    We did indeed get the two. And a win by 37 points or more tonight puts us in the Top 15! Which will be further cemented when the Bunnies smash the Dogs.

    You would think we might be fine with a less than 37 pt win if the bunnies can do a job on the doggies

    Im thinking 35 points would be good enough

    Im suspecting the 37 might be just out of reach

    Not running last would be the worst thing to happen to this team.

    It is the only thing that is going to ensure that the coaching staff finally realise that the squad is not good enough to be a contender

    We won games the last two seasons purely on individual brilliance that is currently no longer there, whether it is Semi's departure or Gutherson yet to return to what he was before the knee injury. I think we now have to possibly consider that after two ACLs that Guthersons speed might not return to what it was.

    Well I was looking at the wrong numbers yesterday. Our differential is now 59 points worse than the Dogs, after their loss today. Our Top 15 prospects are bleaker than I thought. On the bright side, we actually improved our differential compared to theirs by 16 points, so a definite step forward. Things are looking up.

    Not sure how our differential will improve still having to play Roosters, Dragons (with no fatigue) Cowboys (in Townsville), Storm in Melbourne and 1st placed Souths

    We are gonna have to reel in 60 point wins v the dogs and titans to have a chance
