I am looking at the moment. Going to be hard to get an number of large tickets ie 7 or 8 in good viewing. The gold tickets are not much better than the tickets allocated for the team members even platinum for any more than 4 or not great. What are people doing waiting if we beat Melbourne or buying ...

Re: Second week of finals

Assuming we happen to win next week. Who are people preferring to play week 2 out of Panthers or Roosters? Clearly we would love Para to upset Melbourne to then have to play Para to get into the GF.

Re: 2020 Rd 20 V Sharks: Game Day

The bunker decision was correct Loose carry and the ball contacted the tackler. What happens after that is moot. Knock on every time..... except this one. It’s knocked straight out the Sharks hands backwards. That’s not a knock on. Not sure you can say 100% went back. Therefore ruling on the field ...

There is no way in my mind that finishing 5th is better than 4th. Finish 4th and I really like our chances of a prelim final. Then anything can happen.

Souths all over the Roosters at the moment. They could very well knock the Roosters into 4th which would result in a much tougher game for us if we finish 5th and advance to week 2.

Re: 2020 Rd 20 V Sharks: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I really don't see why we can't win. Sharks don't really have a lot to play for and probably have 1 eye on next week. We have a bunch of players (some with great experience) that will be busting a gut to try and show what they can do with their only chance to perform for the year.

I am still very confident we finish 4th. Oh what I would give for that DCE pass that was incorrectly call in round 4 against Parra to be call correctly. Or a Jack Wighton kick for the corner instead of a 40 meter FG attempt in our over time loss.

Warriors have nothing to play for this week now. I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing. It is also likely that the Sharks will have nothing to play for in the last round either other than form.

Not much difference between 5th or 6th spot so if Papalii is injured, rest him until the finals. Top 4 is out of reach IMO. Doubt there'll be much choice.

I think a quick 1 year deal for Starling is a good move for both club and player. Starling gets the certainty of a contract for next year so reduces his concerns regarding an injury over the remainder of the season. He also gets to see if there is a future here at the club with him beyond next year....

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

To right we are! Key will be health over the next few months. Hopefully, we have had our fair share of injuries and the Panthers are yet to have really any. Hopefully with a little bit of travel for them and a little less for us this all changes. It might be 1990 all over again!
