    Sharks would need to lose 3 of their last 4 and Warriors win all of their last 4 games to get 8th spot.

    If it wasn't for the 1 point from the draw, I think Newcastle would be dropping out of the top 8. They've had a lot of injuries but so have a lot of other teams. Knights have just fallen off the rails in attack and defence.

    I think it's done and dusted. Manly too far back with outside chance Warriors sneak in

    I think it settled - the 18pts scenario you've got means Sharks lose all 4 remaining. Warriors have had a good season considering, but a bit too much to do. If the Dragons didn't derp it up on Friday night, they might've had an outside shot as well.

    I can still pull some strings with the predictor to make the dragons make the finals . All hope is not lost Stoned Drunk

    But this is the first week I've finished in the top 30,000.
    Doesn't seem amazing but it's my first year playing, and I was outside 45,000 at one point lol.

    I'm hooked now though and it's definitely in part thanks to you guys.

    Hope everyone's end of season goes well Very Happy

    The first season is tough. I went from 38,000 R1 to inside the top 3000 last year - but bye rounds helped massively with rank rises. A little bit with strategic planning over other overall players, but also H2H players don't bother with bye weeks, which is huge when you're ranked in the 4/5 digits. This year, none of that - if you didn't know what you were doing in the first month, there was way less chance to catchup. So stick at it and you'll find 2021 a lot easier.

    CTR Herbie is much better. Some early ball is what he needs because he has the footwork and strength to be a centre (from playing soccer I would think so). He isn't much of a finisher or a tackler.

    I thought his defence was really solid.

    Didn't get to watch the Storm game yesterday, just a quiet one for CS9? Was gonna trade Lolo for him which I still feel comfortable with. 54 and a quiet game is extremely comforting to me

    Was 33 in 40 for first half after TA. 2nd half a bit down, probably due to few tries being racked up and mainly long-range tries by Storm meaning no KM as they scored before end of set and less tackles

    Second lowest tackle count in 80 minute games this year. Not much to worry about I don't think. Storm had most of the ball. Although I still can't figure out how that translates to Jurbo's lower than average tackle count.

    Manly should have Turbo back this week. Could make a little late push if Sharks fuck it up.

    Saw on nrl.com Hasler was saying Turbo at least 2 weeks away

    They may as well just rest him up and save him for Origin and next year

    Fair enough. The team he plays in probably doesn't help his cause haha.

    Similarly, a "break cause" is attributed to any player complicit in an opposition line break. - NRL.com

    The main break cause contributors for the Broncos in 2020 have been Herbie Farnworth (22 in 14 games), Brodie Croft (20 in 13), Anthony Milford (17 in 13), Xavier Coates (15 in nine), Darius Boyd (15 in 15), Jesse Arthars (15 in five), Payne Haas (11 in 14), Richie Kennar (10 in five) and Joe Ofahengaue (10 in 11).

    Lazy defence all around the park.

    Only Waqa Blake (25) has more break causes than Farnworth, while North Queensland winger Kyle Feldt and Parramatta veteran Blake Ferguson are in equal second with Farnworth on 22 each.

    Herbie is not a bad defender. The problems generally start well inside him. He's also been shifted around all season and had a different player either side of him every other week (that problem has extended through-out the team).

    He's one of the only players in the club who dig in though, and work hard in defense. Sometimes it does mean he's come up with a bad read but he's young and learning.

    Oh I don't doubt that! It is so easy to pull a stat out of anything or see a trend when you are influencing the stats to look that way.
