Get a grip boy … or maybe … loosen it … ;)

We have a good run home and should finish top 4 at the worst. Maybe top 2.

We have hit a wall - but we will come back.

Injury and suspension will start to have an affect in the coming games for all top 8. As will the teams that must play each other in the coming weeks - some a few times.

I like StGI's run home. Souths not so much. Roosters look to have a good run too.

Melbourne in box seat.

actually injuries are the only thing the Dragons have had a pretty good run on this year.:) although Nene is now out injured.

Hitting a wall is one thing but the question is have the Dragons got the mental ability to get over it:banghead:.
I tend to think Bazza might have the right idea sometimes....Follow a team you know are capable of winning a spoon and when they do better its a win.:rolleyes:
I also think that playing the same teams again so soon is a silly look for the NRL and it needs a bit more work to avoid.
Another Mc Merge or an added team or make Origin games stand alone to even out the competition.

I think we do need more speed out wide - Nighty's time has come - and Mann is not really a winger. I have strong doubts on Lafai too.

Whereas I feel Aitken is slowly improving.

We have a team that can beat anyone - on our day - you just hope that day is GF Day !

The Knights now have the toughest run home of any team by that metric, edging out the Raiders, while South Sydney's draw becomes significantly tougher – jumping from seventh easiest last round to third toughest as of this week. The Rabbitohs are neck and neck with Melbourne at the top of the ladder but face a huge challenge if they are to earn a minor premiership with matches against the Storm, Roosters and Broncos in the next three weeks.

Wests Tigers remain a mathematical chance of sneaking into the finals, sitting two wins behind the eighth-placed Warriors after both sides suffered surprise defeats on the weekend. The draw, however, favours the Warriors, whose toughest game will be this week's trip to face St George Illawarra, while the Tigers will face the Dragons and Rabbitohs in the final three rounds.

Can't believe the stats they do - I guess we can all "mathematically" still hope we're in it … :)

I don't like the Bunnies chances tonight as we have lost our left edge in GI and Jennings and it's been so prominent...

We need a miracle....

Well - look at last night. If your lot can just play up and hold them - plus score. Maybe take Smith out early … :)

I'm very nervous for this...

Haven't felt this way in a while.....

I just worry where our points will come from... especially without GI and Robert

Well the Warriors winning today has made it harder for the Wests Tigers, as they will be 4 points out of the top 8 after this round.
