For me, to beat Harlequins comfortably today, raise the standard next week to beat Leeds and raise the level a bit more the following week in the play offs. I am sure all will agree?

Come on Fartown!

I'd just settle for two points and get the 4th place sorted. If the lads follow the game plan, cut out the mistakes and at least match Quins for energy and aggression then I am sure we will be on the right path.

Realistic expectations going on the last 3 months are not very high, However things have to start coming right at some point and where better to start than today, Matt has hit the nail on the head with Energy and Aggression, especially in the pack, if they get on top i would expect us to have a good day.

I'm not sure expectations based on the last three months are all that realistic. Injuries have played a major role, and if our top players are coming back into match fitness again then we could spring a surprise or two. As you said a good performance today could signal things coming right. Since I'm in California I obviously didn't see today's game, but the score suggests a good performance.

It was a very professional performance. Everyone did their job and as a result Brough, Brown, Robinson and co were able to buzz around causing all sorts of problems.

Yes a very encouraging show with plenty of breaks and some good moves, some good kicking also, We need to carry that on next week against Leeds, It won't make any difference to our finishing position, but a win would be invaluable for moral.
Having just watched Wolves trounce Wigan It's obvious there are no easy games from here on, Warrington were extremely good and never really gave Wigan a chance, If they beat Hull next week it will be them that we play, But Wolves or Wigan we will need to be at our very best to have any chance.

Yep agree with Matt and Bo, a decent performance, Quins were weak opposition but a professional job done. We will need to up a level next week, but you can only beat the team in front of you. If we do continue the improvement the play offs could yet be fun for us.

If I'm being totally honest I don't see the type of football we are playing troubling Wigan or Warrington if it comes to a stick and lift (grand final)

I think we have a better chance of getting to the GF by going to Warrington twice if needs be,rather than going to Wigan.

Things have changed in the forwards,Eorl's stepping,Griff needs to up his game to what he was.Mase still not back,others asked to do the job in the front row not capable.We've abandoned the early season tough football and hoping the off the cuff stuff will do.Time will tell if that works now.

Dunno Wire seem to have the right formula against Wigan. Get it wide early, seems to work for them. Hopefully we can learn from Wire if/when we face Wigan.

Still Mase will be important in putting more biff back in the pack, as will Lunt for making sure we have speedy plays when Robbo is rested, although Fooey was very effective in that role today.

Still too much kicking early in the count from the halves,especially down Broughy's side for mine.It will work against Quins most times but Wire & Wigan will just say thanks very much for not putting a move on us.
