NRL Round 18 

Well, truth be told, last weekend's loss to the depleted Cowboys removes 85% of the faith I had in the Warriors making the top 8.

Their performance in Townsville was appalling - Lance Hohia, in particular, stood out with his simply dreadful game.

Actually appalling and dreadful are too kind to describe their absolutely shithouse play.

With the Tigers hitting their straps the top 8 has never looked so far away.

Anyways, their only chance of redemption is to thump the Bulldogs at Ericcson this Sunday and back it up with wins over the Roosters (away) and Canberra at home the following week - I won't be holding my breath.

OK time for the world famous Bennyasena versus NZ Herald's Peter Jessup league tipping competiton.

Eels vs Dragons - both Eels
Rabbits vs Sharks - both Sharks
Panthers vs Sea Eagles - both Panthers (wouldn't bet a cent on it though)
Storm vs Raiders - both Storm
Warriors vs Bulldogs - both Warriors
Tigers vs Roosters - both Tigers
Knights vs Cowboys - Jessup Cowboys Bennyasena Knights

Last week Bennyasena nailed 6/7 but would have happily forgone those six for the Warriors to have won.

After 110 matches Bennyasena is on 59 whhile Jessup maintains his lead with 61.

Here's what the Aussie punters are backing.

I'm letting my sisters take the Season tickets this week (not that they are really mine to give muhahaha).

I've had a gutsful. Even if they win, which they could well do I know they will follow it up with a loss to the Roosters in a "hard fought match where it could have gone either way but the Warriors failed to complete enough sets of six etc etc".

If I was kemp and they win this weekend v the Bulldogs I would tell the boys that if they don't beat the Roosters the worst three players as voted by teammates will have their contracts torn up on the spot.

Fuck it would work, and winnings what it's all about isn't it?

Deep down I think these guys just still don't quite believe. No not in god, in winning two games in a row.
