    See this as the battle for the spoon and I am not confident about us winning.

    I honestly can't see us winning a game until Pearce gets back and even then it will be a mission.

    Get ready to lose to dead last this week. Going to be a real low point.

    I also can't see us winning another game until Pearce returns.

    Worst defensive team vs Worst attacking team in this game

    We have conceded 342 points at an average of 28.5 points a game

    The Eels have scored 170 points this year at an average of 14.1 points per game

    Eels went better this week and seem to be getting ready to get a few wins, we went terrible, will take a big form reversal for us to win this, hopefully pride will allow a huge improvement

    Our defense has gotten worse even adding experience. Its all coming back to the structure in which they "believe" in...... Surely not much belief in it now.

    The three games prior to the weekend we lost them because we made simple errors which cost us dearly, then we compounded it by having the blow out loss to Sharks.

    As in most cases in life things are never as bad as they seem and never as good as they seem, after starting the year 5-3 I think some people got ahead of themselves and now people are forgetting we have played some good football not so long ago.

    Kicking game and defence that's all we should practice all week, the Eels are a bad side they'll give us opportunities we just have to make sure limit theirs by playing good field position and being better in defence.

    With Storm and Roosters to come we need this win otherwise we could be starring at a very long losing streak

    So with Ese'ese set to miss this week's game through suspension, I guess we get to see the dynamic duo of Saifiti and King starting...

    Brown won't go till Wests have a big name coach signed, sealed and delivered.
