Let's get this match thread started.

If last game against the Storm was a must win, then this one is even more so.

And it won't be easy. Tigers have plenty of points in them through Brooks, Tedesco etc, so we have to be up for it defensively.

Short turnaround does not help either.

Yep I'm not overly worried about last night's game. We've been up for a long time now so it wasn't totally unrealistic to have a game like that at some point. Some of the teams above us have done the same thing recently.

It's all about how we back up now. If we put in another shocker against Wests then you start to get a bit concerned. We should be fired up after last night.

4th is mathematically possible if the rabbits lose all their games, and the storm lose most of their games, and we win all our games. Unlikely - we're probably gunning for 5th or 6th now, so in order to avoid facing manly in week 1 of the finals we really need to beat them at home in round 26.

Tigers always seem to get one over us, for being a **** side. Hopefully Woods is out for it. Last night was really critical to our ambitions, I'm usually mad after a terrible performance but I actually feel depressed.

Tigers get it over us? I haven't checked the stats but I feel like we have beat them more than they have beat us in the last 10 clashes.... im probably completely wrong.

We'll beat the Tigers comfortably, their attack is over rated, although they obviously have a bit about them, and their defence is very poor.

Only able to listen to the match last night so hard to comment, but we can't win without beating the opposition pack owing to our inability to kick long. Woods and Tapou are pretty handy but we should get on top of their pack.

If Souths only win 1/3, which is very possible, we can still nab 4th by winning our last 3.

Yeah not fussed by last night, we werepathetic but it gives the team a dose of reality coming into the finals. Id be less confident if we'd won.

Hopefully tiges have lots out and we smash em

Did I read somewhere yesterday that Farah and Woods are in doubt?

I think it's just Woods in doubt now. Read something yesterday that said Brooks and Farah will probably play. Guess we'll know more on game day. I expect them to all be named today.

I guess if they play you could only assume they're fully fit. No point risking them when they have nothing to play for.

We will win but it will be ugly- how the team react to last nights loss against high quality opposition will be very telling for our finals aspirations
