If Will Smith breathes on a football field, might aswell chalk it up as a loss. He is a poison chalice that fella.

**Although couldn't happen to a nicer bloke after his instant karma session against us from that last game.

"Ado-Carr, Ado-Carr goes all the way" You would hope so from a Ferrari. Wow Latrell Mitchell showing ALL centres how to play the game. I was so worried after game one he wouldnt play. Anyway, back to normal footy at last after the Blues just regain posession of SoO dominance, woot.

I reckon it will switch and Foran will end up being the cover for Lewis hahaha. Ogden the kiwi looks awesome sauce.

Some big games for us if we win.

Roosters v Storm, massive impact. Sea Eagles pulling out a speccy and taking down the panthers. Cowboys doing the same against the Rabbits. eventually some of these games the top 6 are winning are going to have to go our way, that Dragons win last night, just too frustrating.
 
There’s certain shit that happens and you realise this just isn’t your year- this is one of those
Yeah, so many close games not going our way. Kind of somes up the quality of the 6 around us who have been losing by 6 or less in the last 5 minutes in the last 3 rounds its nuts how many games could of, should of gone our way. Then if we lose to a good team like today we will drop to 7th or so potentially. So frustrating.

In saying that we are in the best position we have ever been. We surely wont miss 3 from 10 to make the 8. If we can really get our offense together so we are not defending all the time we could potentially crack 7-8 from 10 which would have us in MP potential, but I just hope we get 7/10 and make the top 4. And these teams around us start losing some of these close games.

Also half of the top 8 have already played 15, so we have a game up our sleeve yet to play. You can look at that glass half full or empty, I say full.

That first Bulldogs try had a unique draw and pass. Most of the time its a long ball back in field, move slightly infield and look to play infield before giving the ball out to the short side.

Watching Tyran Smiths boy on the wing for the doggies, set up a good try for Holland, was a nice inside pass - Newcastle having injury problems though - Ponga out with hamstring and now Griffen gone on the medi-cab with knee issue i think.
