Do you mean specifically this year, or just our general benchmark?
Coz if you mean general benchmark I'm with you, top 8 or failure.
But if you're talking about this year, the year following a wooden spoon and the worst season in the clubs history with just 3 wins from an entire season, where the team showed basically no heart ever, and then this year given the hardest draw in the comp, then I have to disagree.
There's a place somewhere between last year's nightmare and the top 8, a stepping stone from 1 to the other, that this year should be given a pass mark.

Just general benchmark, but I still think we have the capability this year to finish at least 8th. We are better than what we are showing.

I think without Milford we can get alot more wins as we tend to drop heads less in games without him, but top 8 is looking basically impossible now.

That saying the teams that have smashed us all look premiership level with a Massive gap to the rest, IMO even making the 8 is pointless as the gap between the top 4 teams and the rest is like NRL and a weak Qcup team.

For mine, not getting the spoon and even finishing above the bottom four is a win for this year. 9-12 would be excellent.

Calm down and have faith! We're still making the 8! We we're never going to beat Melbourne (and we don't need too).

End of this round we'll be 4-6 points off the top 8. Next 6 weeks:
Dragons (away)
Raiders (away)
Rabbitohs (home)
Sharks (home)
Bye
Tigers (home)

I don't see why we can't win all of them.

All these games are state of origin affected games (which doesn't affect us as much as it used too), which would help us with the raiders and souths. Besides souths these are all bottom 8 teams, who we will overtake as we beat them.

Its our year!!!

Oh yes.....its all been Milfords fault. Never mind the fact that he's been in the side for 2 of our 3 wins this year.

Yep we're sure to turn it around now without Milford in the side.......

It's the old spine's fault 1,9,6,7. Milf is a major part of the problem. We've removed a few deadbeats MILF, Dearden, Croft, we just need to remove Turpin and Isaako and she'll be right for next season.

We don't need Milford to beat Bulldogs and Titans.

We definitely don't win with him in the team if he played the Roosters.

Hate to burst everyone's bubble, but if the Doggies find even a short patch of form we are going back to back spoons.
I think our absolute best potential finish will be 12th on the ladder, and that's if several miracles occur in just the right order at exactly the right time.

In fact i honestly think the single biggest factor in us not getting a second consecutive spoon is the Doggies.

HOWEVER.

If we dont play Milford again this year, our chances increase dramatically for avoiding the spoon again.

They have an easy as **** draw too, outside of Manly x2, Eels and Souths. They’ll jag another win or two somewhere at least I think
