    It's a little late, but I wasn't sure if it had been posted yet, or anything similar for that matter.

    I think a top-8 finish isn't beyond us but I wouldn't be disappointed to be mid-table. The first full season with Andrew Johns and "the deadwood", plus missing big name players at key times, Buderus going at the end of the year. A solid season, next year will be the test. They've got to make the 8, if not the 4. Build the backs around Kidley and Mullen, let Hilder and DeGois fight over Danny's jumper and get some solidity and consistency in the pack.

    Our run home is;

    Sharks (A)
    Rabbitohs (H)
    Eels (H)
    Titans (A)
    Raiders (A)
    Cowboys (H)
    Storm (H)
    Broncos (A)

    I think we can finish in the top 8 easily, whether the boys turn up in the games or put in dodgy performances is another thing.

    Melbourne and Manly will likely be the top 2 so we need to come 6th or higher(unlikely though) because if we have to play Manly at Brookie or even worse Storm in Melbourne we are no hope whatsoever so we need to win at the very least 5 of our last 8 and we can realistically win 6 or 7 (I don't like our chances against Storm or Broncos) it's gonna be close but even if they don't make it they've done great this season

    The last two games will be the most difficult and we will probably loose them, so we need to win the next few, thats for sure!

    Storm (H)
    Broncos (A)

    Think about it this way. A win in either of those games (especially Storm), would give the team so much confidence. Huge boost going into the finals (hopefully).
