Who drops out, who comes in?

North Queensland, Cronulla, Manly and Brisbane are all a chance to drop out I reckon. A lot of these teams play each other in the final rounds.

Tigers and Warriors gone I'd say.

Big game for Newcastle on Saturday.

Souths look good.

Yeah, Newcastle are looking likely of those scrambling.

They don't seem to fear anyone at the moment.

As I said, big game for them on Saturday. I honestly believe that they'll roll the Dogs

I was just thinking that, if there were 14 rounds to go I'd have Parra as genuine dark horses

Cows:

Manly (H)

Warriors (H)

Dragons (A)

Newcastle (H)

Cronulla (A)

 

They'd need at least 2 of them, which they should do. Not a given though

yeah, shame they garbage the bed for that 5 week stretch. They really should have won 3 of those, and they'd be potentially running 3rd or 4th

Take a look on wikepedia at the Broncos' record at the back end of seasons since 2001 - it's disgraceful. 

they're done, just like that ... weak as piss, they don't care anymore... and neither do I

This week will tell us alot more about the Titans......

If you look at Souths, who have they beaten? Penrith, Tigers missing half there team, Eels, Roosters (Just), thyey lost to Brisbane, beat the Dragons.......and they lost to us.

Dont get me wrong, i think they are a good team, but they have only done what they should have done.

Warriors dont have the defense to win. If they dont have the ball in there hands, they dont want to play. Its a shame that because they have the most talented roster in the comp...I could only imagine what they would be like if Des , bellamy or Bennet was in charge of that team

You got it easy fella,a Broncos team that has made the top 8 on most occasions since inception and a QLD SOO team that never loses,try being a NSW Blues fan and a Eels fan,NSW haven't won a series since 1804 and the Eels have won about 10 games in the past14 years

That 16 year old Asian girl at the Olympics who came home with a faster finishing sectional than Lonhro could surely give Frankel a scare on a wet track

This. If the Warriors fail to make the 8 with that roster, they'll easily be the biggest disappointment of the 2012 season. The 'Bluey' McClennan signing was the worst thing to happen to the club, Kearney would have been a better fit for the club in all honesty but could only imagine how good they'd be with a good coach...

I will have a stroke if the Eels beat the Tigers this week,beating the Storm scum at home was great and then beating Queensland scum away was brilliant but followed up by beating my arch enemy scum the Wests Derps,surely my body couldn't handle that trifecta.
