Lame lame lame - stunning collapse against the Knights and another loss -Cleary Year II now slips into the void with which we are far too familiar of desperately trying just to make the top eight. Top eight is of course still a possibility, but you need to be in the top four to be a real competitor in the playoffs.

For now though top eight is the dream and I have updated the doomsday countdown accordingly. Ten wins from sixteen remaining games is what is required. At the current win rate of 50% the Warriors will win only eight of those remaining games and will not make the playoffs again. So pick it up now guys or wait out yet another season in the wilderness.
Sixth in the table is not a fair indication of where this season is at.

With all that said - this was a round of upsets - tipping this competition is hard when its so even. Only one more week till Origin so the Warriors need to make the most of any advantage they can take from this and get some wins. Next two games Tigers and Eels are both winnable games - however both of the last two games were winnable as well.

the comment by watson "i will not sell the team til we win the NRL" - when did he say this?

he never said it, its supposed to be humourous, similarly Cleary has never said "coaching this team is like having my teeth drilled"
