It is a must win game, for a host of reasons. Failing to win would confirm a downward spiral that would be difficult to break; a convincing win would reassure many fans that we are actually on the right track.
This is also, surely, a test of GM's coaching credentials. As has been stated on this forum many times (and to misquote my young student Einstein) constantly doing the same thing yet expecting different results is a sign of madeness. Drastic radical change isn't called for but a change in approach and mindset on the field is - let's hope that we see something of that on Sunday.
I am confident that we will win this, provided that we make the right team selections at half back, and will predict:
