    We've done well to be 6 from 7 given that we've pretty much only played top 8 teams. Still, teams like Penrith and the Cowboys could be firing by the time we play them.
    Agree 100%. We are winning by moments of brilliance and not putting opposition sides to the sword. A performance llike the Eels over the Tigers will convince me we've got it all together. But the Anzac game was a scrappy affair. Melbourne first half was great but not maintained and the best lies ahead. So saying we have had a lot of disruptions and Friend's absence is huge.

      I expect us to go to 100+ on our for/against next week.
      Eels are pretenders and put a big score on the Tigers.
      They will get false confidence after playing the Titans and them come up against a real team in us.

        we aren't setting the world on fire, haven't put together more than 40 minutes of top class footy in any game, got done by Souths, could have easily got done yesterday, and squeeked home against Melbourne.
        after blowing a 20 point lead, they just missed a field goal in real time so I wouldn't get carried away. Complacency is our big threat, there are no easy games and if we have an off day we can lose to anyone. Canberra are a big threat, as are the Broncos. Any team which turns up with the right attitude could catch us out, the guys ae great, but they aren't robots.

          We are playing at 60-70% potential, and 60-70% of the 80 minutes.

          A mix of injuries and clocking off defensively, has seen scorelines closer than anticipated.

          But we are still winning and top of the comp. The scary thing for other sides, would be the massive upside we have. Origin time will be tough.

          We are good enough to go back to back!

              Reality is we're playing second gear because we can. The quality of teams this year has to be the worst I can remember. Our attack is so slick there is no one that can match it with us when we're on. We just need to build slowly and peak at the right time.

                  Great story, Stephen. You old tough hard nut rugby props. My father was also a Santa and I respect Santaís nearly as much as our cheerleaders.

                  glad they remember how you helped them

                    Good on you Stevo!

                    I seen an Easter Bunny giving it to someone on the news the other day, but haven't seen a "bad" Santa yet.

                    But seriously, these disrespectful grubs need civilian justice as they only get hit with a feather from the authorities, if anything.

                      Good on you stephen for looking after the girls and giving that scumbag a well deserved beating.

                      And awesome effort to be playing rugby at 67. Matt Dunning clearly isn't your role model

                          We didnít play it right all year last year.. til the last one.

                          The thing is, we have so much strike that we can afford to play at a lower rate, whether intended or not, and still win well.

                          That is the difference.
