    Ok, it's now into the second half of the season and I am trying to come up with what is required from the Dogs to sneak into the finals and for Des to maintain his ongoing semi's appearances. So for this to happen in my opinion the following is required.

    Taking into account another bye and winning 6 from 10 takes us to 28 points which could be the cut off though based on our for and against we may need 30 but let's work on 28 making up the eight.

    We play....
    Warriors (A)
    Parra (A)
    Knights (H)
    Broncos (A)
    Panthers (A)
    Parra (H)
    Rabbits (A)
    Eagles (H)
    Titans (A)
    Dragons (H)

    Where do you see our 6 wins coming from? Seriously, it's not the toughest draw. C'mon I think it's do-able and possibly I can see 7 or eight if we get on a roll. The next couple will be tough with turn around's and so forth. What do you think or predict?

    Oh and no Bob Marley pics there's no smoking going on here..lol

    If Josh Reynolds can find a bit of form then i say its possible. I have no confidence in Mbye steering us to a finals appearance.

    If you believe Des's stats then yes. He would say I got a 60% odd win date

    6 from out next 10? Hasler is our coach for the next 2.5 years. We'll be lucky to win 6 from our next 60!

    We can technically win all of those games. We won't though. We'll probably win 4 of the next 10.

    Knights in golden point?

    Seriously though, two of those teams (Manly & Penriff) have pulled our pants down 38:0 and 36:0 respectively. If they don't come out all guns blazing for those games alone, we might as well not play semi's.

    It will also depend on injuries to us and other teams as well as form.
    We can beat Warriors, Newcastle, Manly, Titans, Dragons, Rabbitohs, and hope to get up in one of the Parra games.

    I don't think we have the cattle to win consistently. 6/10 is too much of an ask for this team.

    Yeh we can make it but unless we get a wriggle on with our f/a we probably need 7/10 to make it

    Warriors (A) - Should win though depends which Warriors side turn up. No Foran for them, but full strength apart from that. No Lolohea anymore which is good as he does most damage against us. Vete and Lisone will match up to our pack though.
    Parra (A) - Parra are on fire at the moment. If that form continues we'll face an uphill battle.
    Knights (H) - Bogie side, could go either way. Should win
    Broncos (A) - We should win this. Brisbane all over the shop and probably no Milford.
    Panthers (A) - Bogie side, could go either way. Depends if we turn up.
    Parra (H) - Parra are on fire at the moment. If that form continues we'll face an uphill battle.
    Rabbits (A) - No excuse not to win. Souths are a bit of a rabble at the moment.
    Eagles (H) - No excuse not to win. We should have the wood over them if we turn up.
    Titans (A) - No excuse not to win. Titans fade towards end of season.
    Dragons (H) - No excuse not to win (again).

    Should win: 7
    May win: 2
    Hard to win: 2

    What's Dib going to do if we don't make it. His main excuse will be gone of making the finals every year.

    I can't see the dog's making the semi's this year, just not good enough and why would you wan't to make the 8 if your only making up the numbers, agree with Hacky McAxe we will be lucky to win 4 out of 10, another let down of a year yet again, thanks for ruining our team Hasler hurry up and bugger off.
