    We have 2 games coming up I feel will show if we're Premiership contender's or Premiership Pretenders.
    Throughout this season while we've been beating the lower sides we're yet to win a game against top 4 opposition.
    Firstly the Rabbitohs - injured John Sutton, a suspended Sam Burgess and Greg Inglis coming back from injury helps us out immensely but an we've also got an injured Choc.
    Secondly the Storm - have started there run now with the big guns firing.

    Agree. Particularly about the Storm. People wrote them off last year around finals time too.

    I expect at least 2 of those 3 rabbids players to play on Friday

    Sam Burgess won't play, neither will John Sutton. And I'm going to take a stab and say that Inglis won't be back until next round.

    Manly vs Souths will be a very physical encounter. I don't think they'll risk Laura in this game.

    Id be just as happy to win the Canberra and Penrith games. Both worth two points just the same as the other two games.

    The 2 important games were just played,Manly vs NZ and Dogs vs Titans.

      The next four games will have a real impact on our final standings on the ladder, leading into the finals.

      I would have thought Manly proved themselves by going to Melbourne, without Brett Stewart, to play the full strength storm and coming away with a draw. None of the top 4 teams need to prove anything. All four have done enough this year to prove they are capable of winning the premiership.

        Personally just want to get 2 or 3 wins in the next 4 weeks. Whilst 4 out of 4 would be brilliant, need to shore up the Top4, and a loss wouldn't be the end of the world either.

        Didn't you watch the game against the Warriors? He's going great.

        but sutton was running around at training without his ankle even having any strapping on it so cannot be that far away. I still believe at least 2 of them will play and wouldn't be surprised if all 3 play. We will be depleted to a far greater extent but there will be no mention of that

        I agree with Bones. Still the game I want to see us most win before the finals is the Brookie game against the Storm.

          His loss will put the power of Souffs' forwards to the test icle.

          Choc is a bigger loss than that pommy gimp.
