    Round 22 gets started tonight with a throw back to the 80's with the Bulldogs taking on the Eels in what was the rivalry of the decade. Tomorrow Night sees the Dragons attempt to put a holt to their free fall out of the Top 8 when they face the Rabbitohs before the Cowboys and the Storm meet up in what promises to be the match up of the round.

    Saturday starts with the Knights taking on the Warriors with the Knights hoping to back up last weeks win, before the Titans and the Broncos meet in the South East Queensland Derby. The Sharks and the Raiders round off Saturday.

    Sunday sees the Sea Eagles take on the Roosters in a battle of the Top 8 before the Panthers hope to have the chance to move into the Top 8 when they take on the Wests Tigers.

    Suddenly we are looking like a very good football team.

    Surely Hasler has to get the boot from the Bulldogs before the season is out?

    For the life of me I'm not sure why they extended his contract.

    Dogs are cooked. How on earth is Hasler still in charge.

    They bowed to the media pressure at the time to do so. Of course that proves you should never listen to the media as the club falls apart as a result.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer club though

    Agree 110%. I hope Hasler buries them before his finished.

    The Dogs are currently worse than us imo. We at least put some points on the board - their attack is horrendous.

    Its just use their forwards to the halfway line and then get the halves to bomb it in hope.

    I honestly thought we would give up a stupid penalty in the last seconds for them to tie it up.

    Also sims could have scored himself there, didn't need to try and pass off

    Nice to see some of the kids play.

    Campbell Graham still in high school, got the call that he was going to debut this morning while study for his exams

    Hopefully do our best to hold onto him along with Crichton, Murray and Fuimaono

    Absolutely buzzing for this arvo. Carlton play at the same time but only one of my clubs is still dipping in at the moment so Newcastle get my attention first.

    Hug chance to win back to back today! SKD out hurts a bit though.

    The storm are the most clinical team i have ever seen play rugby league. No weaknesses anywhere. It will take one hell of a peformance from someone to beat them in the finals.

    Can't see it happening
