Good game last night with the tigers and dragons. Any night the dragons lose and the dogs win is good by me even if they weren't playing each other

Geez what a crappy year for my Eels... I'd say we'll get the wooden spoon.

If we don't make the 8 next year I give up!

Okay looking at the table with only three rounds to go, there are some interesting implications:

 

 

- Unless the Bulldogs win tonight by 55 or more, they will remain on 10th position

- Unless the Sharks win by 42+ or lose by 32+ they will remain on 12th position

 

- The Melbourne Storm have secured a Top-3 finish

- The Manly Sea Eagles have secured a Top-4 finish

- The Brisbane Broncos only need one more win to secure a Top-4 finish

- Only 12 teams are still in the hunt for a Top-8 spot, and even then the Sharks have to win every game

- The Roosters, Raiders, Eels and Titans are no longer in Finals contention

- The Cowboys and Dragons need one more win to secure a finals berth

Always said don't think NSW and QLD need another NRL team, more so NSW. If and when they expand it should be WA and SA. I think WA pretty much have a chance of 1 of the expansion teams. If NSW get another team, they should/need to relocate 1 of the others to SA. At least that's my stance and opinion on it.

Yeah there was a game the other week in Perth, can't remember what teams were playing (both NSW teams).......but sounds like the NRL are trying to get "the west" into the comp which could be good I guess, considering it's mainly a NSW (or Sydney)  based comp

I remember that game, it was the Rabbitohs and the Broncos. I can understand why you wouldn't remember it too well, those teams seam to attract the most angst from Manly fans. :P

 

Surprised by the low-scoring affair in the Storm-Dragons game tonight, I thought the commentating was funny. Gus in particular was ripping into St George and praising Billy Slater the entire night up to about the last 10 minutes when somebody reminded them that St George could still win it off a lucky try. One of the anomalies of the game where the score doesn't really reflect the match that was played before us.

The Dragons n Storm was a good game, unfortunatly the Dragons have gone in the wrong direction at the wrong time of the year..........they may not even make the top 8 the way they're going 

 

Manly will flog the Storm, just like the 40-0 GF win a few years ago....the biggest win in GF history :smileywink:

 

GO MANLY :Thumbs:

The Dragons will make the 8, the only way they wouldn't is if the Knights defeated both the Broncos and Bulldogs but lost to the Rabbitohs, the Rabbitohs won their remaining games against the Broncos and Knights, AND St George lost their remainders to the Warriors and Panthers. Any deviation from that and St George are in.

On a point about the Dragons, it's bad news for them but even worse for NSW. With so many Dragons involved in Origin this year, and it would've been more had it not been for injury, losing the series the way they did would've had an impact, and it's lead to this. But in less than 12 months time, the Dragons may not even be the form team of the competition anymore (not that they are now). We could well see the Knights become what the Dragons were in year 1 - defensive resolve, not a great deal in attack but that'll come later - and the Dragons could slide back to their pre-Bennett days.

 

For NSW, for whom change is the enemy, how do you pick a side with a large volume of players from one club who aren't even the best in the competition anymore? Do you suddenly draft a lot of Knights players to help you out? It's scary when you think that NSW won't get two games in Sydney until 2014, and the team may undergo a drastic reconstruction in the process.

Well, as entertaining as the brawl was on Friday night, Adam Blair is gone for the season and no doubt Glenn Stewart's the same. I wouldn't slash either team's premiership odds, but it will have an impact.

I think its stupid that they're punishing them so harshly. Its a CONTACT sport, people get frustrated and fight.
Get over it. -.-
When i played footy for my local team - there were all in brawls all the time.

Yeah, unfortunately I think this is less about appeasing fans and more about appeasing advertisers. As David Gallop said, there are a lot of parties investing in their brand, and they have to take action to keep guys like R.T. Edwards, VB and AAMI happy.

Yeah cool, make it about the investers...not about the actual game.

NRL officials are a bunch of sell outs. So long as the price is right - they will do whatever you want.

So the Tigers, Broncs and Sea Eagles are the winners so far, provided Melbourne win tomorrow it'll be the first time in a long time each of the top four sides have prevailed in their opening finals game.

 

 

So the slate for the next couple of weeks if Melbourne win will be:

 

Dragons @ Broncos > Winner @ Sea Eagles > GF
Warriors @ Tigers > Winner @ Storm > GF

 

 

If Newcastle wins:

 

Storm @ Tigers > Winner @ Broncos > GF

Dragons @ Knights > Winner @ Sea Eagles > GF

Wow, two sensational games over the past 24 hours. Warriors really surprised me, the Tigers dominated the last game against St George and I really felt they'd go on with it. Broncos, well, Lockyer's all class.

 

It sets up for two real heavyweight clashes that may be more exciting than the Grand Final itself. You can bet your life the Broncos-Sea Eagles clash will be close, I don't think either match played in the regular rounds will be a good indication of how the game will go. If the Storm had to name one team they'd like not to play in the Finals, the Warriors probably would've been it. Nevertheless, both matches are worth catching.
