Calling it now! We're making the 8 this year:

- Most of the games against the top 4 are out of the way.
- alot of games at home for us from here on in.
- we hopefully shouldn't lose too many to origin (unlike the teams we play during that period)
-looking at the reminding 14 rounds we only need to win 9 games (plus the bye) to make the 8 (assuming its 26 this year).
- besides Melbourne and Penrith, I don't see why we can't win all the others.

Storm, Suncorp Stadium
Dragons, Netstrata Jubilee Stadium
Raiders, GIO Stadium
Rabbitohs, Suncorp Stadium
Sharks, Suncorp Stadium
Bye
Tigers, Suncorp Stadium
Panthers, Panthers Stadium
Cowboys, Suncorp Stadium
Knights, McDonald Jones Stadium
Roosters, Suncorp Stadium
Warriors, Suncorp Stadium
Sharks, Netstrata Jubilee Stadium
Knights, Suncorp Stadium

I love your optimism, but we have seen crazy highs and lows this year so i am completely confused about where we will end up on the ladder.
Case in point, a win over the Titans followed 2 rounds later by a 50 point flogging at the hands of Manly.

A close loss to Penrith followed by a 40 point flogging by the Eels.
If we follow this pattern, then expect a 50 point flogging at the hands of the Storm next round.

Now with the insanity of the games knee jerk rule changes, its next to impossible to say where we will end up.

All that being said, 100% for sure we make the 8.

The issue this team has is consistency. They CAN get up for it but it's not in their DNA yet. After a gutsy win they MUST back it up to build momentum and confidence bit the draw keeps denying them that chance..

Storm
Although.. the constant stop start nature of the new interpretations does allow for our team to regroup and avoid huge lapses of mental toughness for periods of a game that previously allowed the opposition to score quick back to back tries.

Including having some of these old heads around is probably helping with that 'mental toughness' too.

But the draw is looking better for us.

It’s a nice thought, but in reality we’d probably need to win 10 or more of the remaining games this season...

It is not as outlandish an opinion as it should be such is the gulf between the top 4 and everyone else. 5-16 are all likely to be pretty far into the negative.

No chance of post season action. Would have to finish at least 8-5 and these chumps aren't capable of that. It will be a positive if they can avoid finishing bottom 4. Even that is long odds.
