    It definitely wouldn’t surprised me if we got it to be fair, I can’t see us winning any of our remaining three and we have the worst f/a in the comp which doesn’t help our case. May snag a lucky win against the choking Dragons but who knows? If I had to pick though I’d say it’s a race between the Cows and Parra.

    The Eels would seem to have only one win left in them, maybe the Dogs also. The preferred option is for us to win one game and we avoid the spoon.

    The third last round is often the big upset round for some reason, so this week the bottom sides might all go well, but the last few rounds the sides heading for the finals get serious and the bottom sides all give up for the year and start booking their holidays in Bali.
    The 5 sides behind us will all be lucky to win again after this week, unless they are playing each other, and even then, someone will lose.

    We normally aim up for old boys day. If dragons are playing like they are now we will smash them.

    Could be wrong but thought we had a pretty good record for old boys day. Ok we have not won in 15,16 or 17 but we didn't win many games at all those 3 seasons.

    For the record I think it will be between Dogs and Cowboys, Eels are firing and must be sorry for poor start when amongst early favourites.

    Who can pick what is going to happen in this competition ?

    18 pts Knights already in the bag the worst we can do.
    16 pts Dogs, likely to do it tougher than us with Worriers , Sharkies firing , Dragons anything could happen.
    16 pts Eels , Even though Eels are on a role Roosters , Storm should be too good, and JTs last Home game could be tougher than they think.
    16 pts Cowboys, Sharks too good , Eels big game , Titans nothing to play for away game.

    Here's hoping

    Was talking with an ex Para player on the week end and he said that Hayne is without a doubt the best player he has played with , if only he kept his mouth shut and played footy - well they taped it shut on the weekend and he scored a hat trick, so he was right.

    If we get our fourth spoon in a row then, there’s a massive chance Nathan Brown will be sacked as head coach, Three strikes you’re out.

    No chance we get it, with a few of the contenders playing eachother making it even harder for ALL of them to climb to our points.

    Eels and Cowboys have to play each other plus the Eels also have to play Melbourne and the Roosters so personally I don’t see them winning again this year.

    You got the pts wrong lol

    Parra Cows dogs are on 14pts

    Parra and cows play each other so at best they can only reach 18pts, but they have tough games to get to 18pts.

    Dogs wont win another game this yr imo.

    Dogs 16th, parra 15th, cows 14th, titans 13th, knights 12th.

    88 Knightlife, my figures are the points I think those teams will finish on by the end of the year , best case as they all have tough runs home against top opposition but I am prepared to let them have one more win each and may the Footy Gods prove me right cause I don’t think we can win any more this year (even though I will still back the Knights each game)

    Now that we have avoided it I've moved the thread into the General Discussion area

    I'd love to see Manly get it
