Next 7 Games (9 Rounds) - Great Draw!

Still riding the excitement from last week and have noticed we have a great opportunity over the next 9 rounds to move into the 8 and, hopefully, cement a spot.

It goes:

Cowboys (minus origin stars)

Bye

Dogs

Manly (minus Turbo and DCE)

Dolphins

Bye

Warriors

Titans

Cowboys

It gets harder after that, but we also enjoy a Bye in the last round prior to finals.

It would be great to bag 5/7 games and pick up 14 points in that period - which is a very real possibility if we keep playing well. It is conceivable that we could do better than that too (perhaps that's a little too optimistic).

Giddy up!

  • I thinnk the top 5 will remain relatively the same season end. 6-14th is up in the air. Given how close the mid table i think if we win less than 5/7we don't make the 8 (considering we have a tough end run to the comp).

  • We are likely to get Matto and possibly RCG back for dogs game but most likely manly game .  Great bench will be massive to avoid the mid game fade outs etc . 

  • What will also help is teams above us are playing each other which is a bonus 

  • We have a top 5 for and against too. We can very easily be in the top 4 if results go our way, but we really need to win these next 7 games.

  • Thats a good looking draw, JBG. 

    Every game winnable if we are serious contenders. 

    Kinda perfect from here. We can hopefully get some points and build momentum then have a tougher run into the finals and get battle hardened.

    Full unicorn, not giving up on the top 4 if we win tonight.
