I would agree with that. However I've not really seen it from any of our immediate challengers in recent weeks either and I'll gladly take the ability to defend and have the individuals who can make something out of nothing right now. That gives us more than a chance in a final. With Flower and O'Loughlin (and possibly Bullock) I think we have a chance to better the parts of the game where we're currently falling a bit short.

I think that this is pretty spot on.
We have very little options in our kicking to cause too many issues with well drilled defences.
I'm just enjoying the ride at the moment.
For the first time in a while I jumped out for seat to cheer the second try from French which was a little cameo in itself.
The Cas game I think will be a tough one and for me Cas could be the dark horse in the playoffs.

One word Mr Chairman Jarrod Sammut.

Honestly believe his kicking game would be the difference between us having a dig and being genuine contenders.
I think we look a much more balanced team with him in it.

Can he play in a "moon boot"?
And if he can who would you drop?

He was at the fanzone before the match on Friday Brian, no boot on. Didn't notice any limping either, hopefully his injury was only minor.

He can only come in for Powell or Leuluai and he can’t defend anywhere near that standard. We’ve won 11 out of 12, I’ll stick with what we have thanks.

I think it should be four forwards on the bench in the playoffs. French should start on the wing.

And therein lies the problem. Our halves aren’t doing it atm but who would be brave enough to drop anyone?

He plays at scrum half. Powell and Leuluai fight it out for the 9 jersey.

Especially when Lockers may be one of those four and he can cover the half’s, to allow Tommy to them cover the hooking role.

I’d start this on Thursday with Greenwood moving up to replace the banned Farrell and a bench of Flower, Lockers, Byrne and Navarrete.
