    This would be the most confident I've been all year- I think we can put some points on them.

    Looking for a comfortable win, but our attack is pretty damn average so I fear that may keep things uncomfortably close until near the end.

    Cowboys did the Warriors a solid last night, if they win and the storm beat the sharkies it's up to 6th. That has me worried since in recent years they always seem to lose after another team does that.

    Im wanting a first half domination, followed by many extra points in the 2nd half.

    Kata to feed Ken for 2 tries, and pass from dummy half a metre out for a try under the posts. Then we spend a week discussing whether it was good coaching, or public (and team-mate) scrutiny that did it.

    I want Warriors 42 - 6.
    I expect Warriors 14 - 12, with a 14 - 0 first half, 2 quick 2 half Knights tries, then another strong defensive game that has us all truly concerned about our attack.

    Totally this. With Sharks against the Storm we have a good crack at 6th by the end of the weekend. But saying that it would be pretty warriors to shit the bed and make some of the plodders at Newcastle look like future immortals.

    Playing small ball with Tevaga after the break seems to be letting teams back in and isn't building momentum: Kearney has to wise up get some hard runners starting then play small ball once they have set the platform.

    We only need to win by 83 points and have the panthers loose to the GC, and we’re up to fifth place.

    Hoping for a win and a positive points differential.

    Fus to get four because he goes inside Beale twice and breaks straight through for a double. SJ hits him with a exquisite cut out pass and Green obliges with a high bomb to the corner.

    Jazz gets one tonight.

    SJ gets one.

    Bully dominates the middle and Blair plays the whole game. I know right?

    If I told you the 8th placed team in the NRL would be playing the 11th placed team in a random sports league you knew little about then you would be expecting a tight tussle with a perhaps a slight expectation the 8th placed team would win.
    And that is what we have here. This game could be really tight.

    Jazz said in his interview they were really surprised by the intensity of the Titans so they are preparing for this one like it is a top eight side.

    I have $20 on the warriors to win by 13+ but I would be more than happy with a one point victory.

    The fact they were "surprised" by any team's intensity shows how far the team and organisation still has to develop mentally and professionally.

    I'll just be happy with a win. The Knights are still a strong team on paper and Ponga is a constant threat in attack.
    That would all but cement a spot in the finals with only 3 games to go, especially if the Tigers lose to the Raiders.
    I know we can never take anything for granted due to our history, but this would be our most spectacular choke yet if we were to miss out!

    You are correct.
    And this isn't a defence of them. But Mannering predicted this. When he rejoined the side around round 5 he said that it was great that they were off to a great start but, and let me remember his words, it takes years to build a championship side, in terms of learning how to win and how to win consistently. He even shocked the reporter, who was riding high on the 4 straight wins, by saying there would come a time this season where we would lose two in a row,
