A travelling day for me today. Hope it’s a good game.

Good luck FD and your Tigers.

If the Tigers win this game they have about a 5% chance of making the finals. If they lose, it's zero. I think they can win although Elijah Taylor's out so that isn't a good omen. I'm glad to see him out and I wouldn't play him again this year. I think he's had 5 HIAs this year and should have had a rest earlier than this.

Manly off to a good start with a DCE try+goal after 5 minutes.

Tigers looking good in attack but blowing the final pass several times.

And now another... the points differential between 7/8 is getting closer FD...

... and it is possible that Broncos and NZers could both lose this weekend. And Broncos could lose big time if the Chooks click into gear.

Ruan Simms and Joey both are spot on. When 1 marker, you have 1 job and that’s the dummy half. When 1 marker, your A defenders must be tighter

Wow, Manly gift them the 2 points, but the differential could be hardly less a favourable result for the Tigers.

A win’s a win. Pity they look as though they more than likely won’t get a top 8 place. 

It’s turned out to be a ‘what might have been season’. They  just needed that extra win. Still a season with promise and good signs for the future.

For me, it's been an excellent season. We don't have A-List players. We have B-Listers who try hard (nearly) every week. That's all you can ask for. We lost 4 games by 2 points. I said at the start of the year that we couldn't score enough points and that turned out to be the problem. If we'd got 1 more try per game, we would be 2 points clear of the Storm on top of the ladder.
