In a surprisingly not so strange set of circumstances Cronulla will finish eighth regardless of whether they win or lose next week against Canberra. With their current for/against there is no no way they will overtake Souths and take seventh spot.
Even if Cronulla manage to win they will possibly have to head to Canberra the following week and beat them again.
Now, I could be wrong, but I'd imagine they would almost prefer to just lose to Canberra and hope tigers get up against us in benji's final game.
Yep, I'm calling it. I actually have no doubt. Cronulla would prefer to play us at bankwest. They will fancy their chances and whilst totally unprofessional and unsportsmanlike I can see Cronulla "taking it easy" next week. We can't complain though, we, according to all reports did the same thing in the final round of 2009.
Of course none of this will matter if we find a way to beat the tigers. Surely our players can get the job done. Regardless of it being benjis last game it would mean a lot more to our team overall.
