    The time has come to look at the run home.

    Despite some horrific performances it does appear we are still in the hunt for the finals but will need to win a fair few games to get there.

    7 wins from our final 11 games will have us make the magical 28 points mark. We missed out purely on points differential in 2015 so 8 wins should see a guaranteed finals spot.

    In our favour is the fact this season seems to be weaker than others - there are many teams ready for the taking if we can just get our heads around the brocess.

    Round 14 - Away - Gold Coast (Point to consider - great record)

    Round 15 - Bye

    Round 16 - Home - Bulldogs (Origin players backing up from game 2 days prior)

    Round 17 - Away - Manly (Game is in Perth)

    Round 18 - Bye

    Round 19 - Home - Panthers (Origin players backing up)

    Round 20 - Away - Cowboys

    Round 21 - Home - Sharks

    Round 22 - Away - Knights

    Round 23 - Home - Canberra

    Round 24 - Away - Souths

    Round 25 - Home - Manly

    Round 26 - Away - Tigers

    Going by the first 13 rounds, we'd be lucky to win another 5 games including the 2 scheduled against the bye

    I had written off making the 8 prior to first round (against Doyle's prediction) solely on the basis we didn't recruit no one, so NO CHANCE AT ALL.

    Picture this...round 26 needing the win at Leichardt to get into the 8. 79th minute sideline conversion, Tigers new prop Tui Illhavabeer steps up to the plate. He sinks it, to down the warriors 50-48. Finishing up 2017 in 9th, oh the joy.

    I could believe we would concede 50 points but there is no way we can score 48......

    If we can beat the Titans and Bulldogs then I'll get interested.

    Otherwise forget it!

    If we some how scrape into the 8 (I don't think we will) what then? Knocked out 1st week by the Storm or the Sharks? Does that make our season a success?
    Sure the players might all suddenly have an Eureka! moment "that's what the process is" and suddenly transform into a winning team but I can't see it.
    Auckland is a real city with real attractions it's not a provincial backwater like Townsville, Newcastle or Canberra we should be making the 8 every fucking year as a minimum requirement not just trying to scrape into it.

    After what's been dished up the last 5 years I would say yes- I'd take it.

    There's no forcing involved, I'm sure we happily agree in order to "spread the game"...Tui, anyone?

    Same way we agree to take a home game to another part of New Zealand.

    I'd take any sort of winning season, even 12-12, but unless the team has a heart replacement - it ain't happening.

    Look at those last 5 games, away games to 3 teams that LIKELY won't have anything to play for, they'll probably still beat the warriors, cos out guys won't be interested in making the season last any longer than it has to. You don't get paid extra for playoffs.

    A few years ago that was correct.

    8th place would play 5th which will probably be Manly, Dragons or Cowboys away

    Jesus Wept.

    Yes I could imagine these creepy bastards sneaking in.

    Why make victims of us all in yet another thought experiment ? Because we like to dream....there goes the demarcation between us....the unpaid the dreamers....the hopeful....and the defective employees of this outfit.

    They haven't yet finished molesting us in season regular....let alone toying with us mice come top eight do or die Warrior Dystopian world surrender.

    The real question is :

    Are we on track to sabotage a perfectly achievable top eight target ? Its rhetorical.

    No disrespect to the thread creator I'm glad of the opportunity to post in here.

    Players union strikes the top 8 playoffs, every team docked their points, everyone finishes 16th, we change our name back to Auckland Warriors so we finish on top of the table.

    Top 8?

    Have you not been listening to Stephen.

    Its not about the top 8 you know.

    Its not even about winning you know.

    Its something deeper you know.

    Its about self enlightenment. Its about giving in to your deepest desires. Look beyond winning. Look into the light.

    Stephen will show you the true meaning of consistency.

    Stephen the spiritual guru.
