Yeah, can see either of those being a real possibility, but to be honest we had our chances tonight to take that out of the league's hands. If we're going to have to beat Penrith just to make the GF then we have to be able to win next week anywhere, against anyone.Probably at Allianz v Roosters and at Accor if v Rabbitohs knowing the NRL...

I've got zero expectations now, we blew it tonight. Weren't helped by some atrocious calls but we let 2 ridiculously easy tries in during the first half when we could have shut them out.
It was that. There is consolation in that there is a lot to build on in this side, and the new coach has made a big difference. Hopefully the form continues into next year, but yeah, just not clutch enough when it mattered.Going to be a massive ask from now on. Obviously no consolation to you guys, but a cracking contest for the neutral; one of the games of the season, I thought. I expected it to be close, and couldn't separate you guys, but that close!
Yeah I think we were just underprepared for the intensity of finals. 70 points conceded in two games is something to work on for next year.
Mind you, had last week's game been 15 seconds shorter, we'd be in a prelim next week.
I think you're right, fifth is about where we are at the moment. All four prelim finalists are a rung above at this stage. A promising first season for Fitzgibbon though.
