    Atlanta Braves beat Washington Nationals 8-4 @Atlanta - Half a game behind NY Mets and 1 game behind Philladelphia in the National League East with 52 games to go- the chase is on

    Fair bit of pressure on Atlanta to ban the Chop and change their name as deemed as racist - So Canberra Raiders should ban the Viking clap i suppose as well.

    From the outside I would rate the top 6 as follows

    1- Storm
    2- Riff
    3- Vermin
    4- Manly
    5- Chooks
    6- Parra

    Difference between the Storm and the Riff at full strength and the rest is their defence and ball movement and they generally play 80 minutes.

    If the other 4 teams can match them in the key areas - high set completions/ low errors ( low missed tackles/set restarts and penalties conceded) / good kicking game and defence that moves at speed and cuts down their time and space in attack and sustain this for the full game then they will be a chance. Whether teams 3 to 6 can do this time will tell

    Need to make them (Storm and Riff and any other team) beat you and not beat yourself by putting in a poor performance

    As Big Jack Gibson would say you don't like losing but if the team played to it's ability that is all you can ask - only was critical if a team lost because of errors , ill discipline and dumb play

    On NRL360 Buzz, Hooper, and Kent were discussing of the merit for Parra to finish 5th or 6th thus avoiding the Storm or to a lesser extent Penrith because it’s preferable to go into the second week with a win(if they could even match that) rather than playing the Storm and be thrashed and go into the second week of the finals down in confidence after such a thrashing.

    Considering our disastrous injury list and how lack of experience our players are, that could be a thought for Robbo, but at the end of the day, it’s a gamble and also considering that we seem to get injuries in every game, it maybe best to try and play as less games as necessary.

    Souffs to my knowledge don't seem to have had any injuries at all to key players, basically playing with same side week in week out to win 9 on the trot. They just don't look like getting injured, whereas I half close my eyes every time one of our players is involved in a tackle, waiting for the next season ending injury.

    We are without about 10 of our first string side and yet almost every week another of our players joins the disabled list.

    This week we have a brand new starting winger whom we discarded 5 years ago.

    Incredible we are around top 4, but only 'top 4' side we have beaten was Parra last week.

    The betting says its close, but I will be amazed and very pleased if we get over pamfers tonight.

    Fourth after the weekend, Parra season is over and we will have an easy win against a wounded Penrith.

    4/ Roosters/Manly
    5/ Roosters/Manly

    Also assuming we make it to the prelim (touch wood).

    Using the NRL site's predictor and assuming 1st and 2nd win in week 1.
    Regardless of whether we finish 4th or 5th we play Manly in week 2 and Panthers in the prelim.
    Only difference is who we play in week 1. We play Storm for a shot at a week off or play 8th (likely Titans or Raiders).
    I see no advantage in coming 5th and playing every week. Come 4th and have a shot at a week off. You never know what the teams will look like with injuries and suspensions.
    If we finish 6th then we are likely to play Souths in week 2 then Storm and prelim. Obviously Mickie's preference.​​​​​​​
    Thats what I was thinking but not the finishing 6th bit. But if we did finish 6th & we faced Souths & won then we faced Melbourne & won it would be the best ever result for the Chooks with 5 out.
    4th or 5th doesnt really matter.

    Would we be better of if we could come fourth . You get to play the next week if you loose . Fifth we loose we are out and based on this year when we play teams below us we don't seem to do to well.
