Winning next week is not a choice, it is a must. Even if we got through Sea Eagles / Panthers, we then face Melbourne in Melbourne, stuff that.
We will have to face them some time to win the premiership. I'd prefer to face them after they have a week off. A week off may make them play better, but it also could get them out of their form

Not necessarily... If we win this week the only time we would meet them is in the GF, assuming they make it there

Yeah true. But if another team can knock them out there is no reason we can't. If we want to be premiers, we should not be worrying about avoiding teams

Breaking News: Young Matt Moylan's hamstrings have given away after finding out that he was born in 1991 and in fact is not young.

Not only will Panthers not have Matt Moylan for this finals series, they also won't have Waqa Blake after he was ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury suffered against the Sea Eagles.

I can't see Panthers making it through to week two.

it is a sad day for rugby league when the Swans AFL team has already sold out their venue for their finals game and yet neither the Sharks vs Cowboys or Sea Eagles vs Panthers have sold more than 5000 tickets for their games

Largely because the fans are sooking that the games aren't out of their home stadiums. I do agree with them, but it wouldn't stop me from attending. Soft cocks.

I don't it's a pissweak excuse, for years we didn't have the luxury of even having finals outside of sydney, always traveling south of the border yet our supporters and other teams traveled to those games down in Sydney. Pathetic that only that amount of tickets have been sold so far. No excuse for any team in the sydney area to not draw good crowds especially come finals times.

The TV audience for the NRL games will dwarf the afl finals.

especially it's not like the NRL are making it expensive to go to with tickets starting at $20 ... I expect the tickets to our home final in week 2 or 3 to be higher than that.
