    Please just not 60 points again, anything but that. Come to think of it, 40 points sucked enough as it is. Anything under 40 would be a pass tbh.

    No no no no no.......
    Imo the best chance we have tbh although it wont happen

    D saifiti
    Levi
    J Saifiti
    Barnett
    Buhrer
    Stockwell

    Sione
    Starling
    Tupou
    Yates/ Stone

    Send our biggest guys out to start the game and try monster them early then send the tackling machines on to hold them off till halftime then run them around as much as possible and slow the game down until the big boys get back on then monster them in the final 20.

    Jacob is either injured or so out of form he should be in cup.

    Tupou would be good to give it to his old team mates.

    Jack Stockwell - 62.5m
    Luke Yates - 60.8m
    Jacob Saifiti - 40m
    Sam Stone - 37.5m

    Sharks

    Andrew Fifita - 154m
    Matt Prior - 88.8m

    Starling's contract expires at the end of the season. If he does not lift his game, I hope he is not re-signed.

    Last year both games combines score was 98-4.

    I have no illusions of winning this game. But they have to stand up, no swiss cheese goal line defence. Actually move in defence like you mean to stop them.

    From there I just hope we compete hard, and don't get belted.

    Not looking forward to this at all, they will put another big score on us. I just hope it doesn't completely wreck our confidence. Bulldogs at home next week is a winnable game.

    I hope so but I have a feeling they'll have a point to prove

    That may well be true elvis, but to prove any point, first you gotta score 'em. Look at our forwards effort in rhugh89's post.

    Depressing. We really did need to pursue a good prop or two in the off season. Not rub outs from other Clubs.
