As predicted there were plenty of movers last week, with the Warriors the big winners and the Cowboys the big losers in the Top 8. Teams are still jostling for positions like deck chairs on the Titanic. I get the feeling this week that there will either be more congestion between 4th through to 11th, or there will be a clean break from 8th to 9th.
Storm - Sharks (a), Broncos (h), Eels (h), Bulldogs (a), Titans (h).
I said last week that I thought they had one loss in them, but I never expected it to be against the Roosters. Now that the rest of the comp has seen that, perhaps they are looking a little more vulnerable now.
Whilst all their remaining games are now all winnable, if I were coach Bellamy I might pay teams a bit more respect and play my best side each week.
Injuries seem to be the only thing that can stop them this year but Crocker is due back at some stage which will help things.
Sea Eagles - Broncos (a), Knights (h), Rabbitohs (a), Warriors (a), Dragons (h).
The Sea Eagles got home in a fantastic game against the Eels. They face a tough assignment in the coming weeks, having moved their clash against the Knights to the Central Coast meaning their only remaining home game is against the Dragons in Round 25.
I think they may drop one of them along the way but they should pick up most of their remaining games providing their stay injury-free. Last week
