Real danger for this game is that we don't turn up with a good mentality and Dragons turn up with high intensity.

Can sense an ambush.

This is my big worry too mate. Any other team below us on the ladder I'd be confident with. But Dragons and a local derby? Never confident, even if we were first and the Dragons were last.

Really need to shut Hunt down. The rest will take care of itself.

Ladder places mean little when it comes to the grudge match between us and the Dragons.

We certainly need to turn up with intent and willingness otherwise we will get overrun

3 wins gets us top 4 I believe. Ideally we get 3 in our next 4 so we have an option to rest guys in the last round.

Parra v Broncs, Parra v Storm and Broncs v Storm all still to come. This means at best only one of those sides below us could possibly win 5/5. I'll be surprised if the eels and broncos manage 4/5 with Moses and Carrigan gone respectively for the month.

34 points is the target I believe, 2 points here will be a big step in the right direction.

Prefer to be playing the Dragons than the Tigers this week. More chance of getting up for a local derby than 15th on the ladder.

Uele and Tracey were both interviewed and said these are danger games for us, these teams can be dangerous because they've got nothing to lose and if we're complacent it could be costly for us.

So I'm hoping the team is switched on. Though it's one thing to say it and another to go out and do it. The good teams go out and do it so let's see what we are.

I think a win here will pretty much guarantee us top 8 ? but makes top 4 a bit easier too.

Yeh I heard that too. Let's hope they play that way.

Really looking forward to this one. Derbies are always fun and the Dragqueens should give us a good game, they’re not as bad as people think but we’re in better form. 22-12 to the Sharks.

Can you make it 24-12? I have them with -11.5 start / under 42 points

Thanks CM

Was surprised to see Dykes get the call up over Miller. To be honest I haven't seen any of the NSW Cup games this year but Miller tore it up in his NRL debut earlier in the year. I've been excited about seeing him in sharks jersey again. Oh well, hopefully Dykes has a solid game. Have to be good under the high ball with Hunt kicking. Lachie's kick returns in that game were killer.
