    Tigers are certs.. HAHAHAHA

    But seriously, i think it will be between Penrith, Bulldogs and the Roosters...

    I would love to see the Panthers win it but they need to prove their defence is strong enough....

    The roosters have been there and done that but with a few injuries i don't know if they will be able to again....

    The Bulldogs have a score to settle from last season and have hit their straps over the past few weeks, however in those games they have yet to come up against a top side.....

    The dark horse is Melbourne, although they are hot and cold they have a very good side which is under-rated, the big Q is whether they can win 4 games in a row away from home to do it...

    My choice is the Panthers...

    I have no doubt it will be Melbourne. Go the Storm and Kirk is the best (he is my avatar).

    This season has been slightly disheartening as Warriors fan, but look at the facts. We're only 4 points off the lead, and not once this season has our best 3 players on been on the field at the same time. If we could get Lauit'iti (spl), Marsh and Jones all on at the same time I think we'd do awesome. We beat Brisbane with none of these players...

    Next season we'll have a quality centre in Tony Martin, and with him we'll have a GOAL KICKER.



    So next season expect to see the Warriors re-emerge, as one the top 4 teams...

    Well Marsh won't be back this season, and i think without the home semi the Warriors will struggle, but i agree that next season they should go ok...

    As much as I don't want them to, I think the Bulldogs will win. The Roosters could push them close, but they probably need FitzGibbon back.

    As for the Tigers - they will be a good side next year. They have bought very cleverly.

    What do you think? Will Benji Marshall make the NZ team for the one off test against Australia in October?

    Its an interesting topic because he's been in Australia for about a year now..but his parents still live in Whakatane on the east coast of the North Island so it'll be interesting to see which way he goes considering he recently played age group league for Australia.

    bulldogs over the last few weeks

    Knights - 48-14
    Bronco's - 40-4
    cowboys - 44-22
    Bunnies - 62-12
    Storm - 50-4
    Sea Eagles - 56-24



    storm, knights and bronco's are all top 8 teams, the bronco's were understrength. note also that the bulldogs have also been missing key players like Anasta and Sherwin for parts of this run.


    if dogs beat the raiders they are guarenteed a top 3 finish, and with the sharks in the last round are likley to win that, if roosters of Panthers slip up than the bulldogs qill finish top 2 dur to the huge points difference accumulated over the last few weeks

    Im sure you saw it coming...PANTHERS.

    They have gone better than even a life time supporter like me thought.

    With gower going well i think everything is gelling for the first time in years. If they can get past the bulldogs then its theirs.

    Knights - 48-14 (haven't been themselves this season)
    Bronco's - 40-4 (SOO week, so Brisbane were well under strength. Sure Canterbury some players, they weren't hit nearly as hard as the Broncos)
    cowboys - 44-22 (****ty Team)
    Bunnies - 62-12 (Really ****ty)
    Storm - 50-4 (Hot and Cold this season. I reckon they'll be eliminated in week 1)
    Sea Eagles - 56-24 (****ty Team)

    Still in critising those results, they have been playing very well, and I expect that they'll be the team to beat...

    I don't think he will, it would be silly to rush him, The guy is an AMAZING talent but even i as a Tigers supporter am weary that rushing him and putting to much pressure on him could be detrimental...

    Im so excited though, i mean i can't remember the time when there was so much hype over a young TIGER!!!!
