You don't rate Gillett?
Didn't think of Matt
Cows get a chance tonight against the pretenders. Surely the cows can win it without Matt Scott and Thurston.
I'd be happy if we stayed within 12 points tonight
I'm not saying they're not good players (Gillett too), but as isaiah says, they have some forward depth, and Broncos don't rely on forward dominance. But the Cowboys lose half their spine (at least, maybe more) to Origin.
And if the Storm only lost Smith or Cronk or Slater, that would be a big loss for them, let alone all 3. It's the concept of a pissing competition comparing clubs that are depleted from Origin that I find ludicrous.
It will of course depend a lot on when the team's byes are, and which Origin depleted sides you play. The whole period is a bit of a farce, and frankly is unfair to the Storm, Broncos and Cowboys (and last year the Sharks, previous years the Roosters have contributed a lot), or whichever team gets hit badly with selections.
hey foggy, hope i am not in here too early for your liking this week
Cows learning what life without thurston looks like. Looks good!!
Well they have put on 12 points since you posted, so he might want you to post earlier in the future.
both teams among 5 battling for positions 5-8 at season's end.
bet you had a bit of a nervous dribble there
the only way you'd look more stupid would be if we had got up
he would be really handy, imo. played on most of 2015 with back troubles. wouldn't have made the gf without him.
how many more losses til you admit they are not top 4 material?
when you started this thread we only had Matt Scott out
you've turned into a smug wanker now things have worked out the way you hoped
i think the broncos will just make the 8, but go the first week
Lol we've got 3/4 of our spine out
Plus Scott .
We will go ok but will struggle against quality sides
If they play like that with so many out(and Feldt derping it up)they are a top 4 chance when they get some players back. Can't afford to lose too much ground though with Origin likely to bite. BTW. Asiata looks good at half.
If we make the eight with no one but Scott out, then I would be feeling pretty confident about shaking things up.
[QUOTE="Life's Good, post: 12124855, member: 46087]BTW. Asiata looks good at half.[/QUOTE]A half wannabe in a small forward's body. But it was still good to see him get the chance to use his ball skills, need to see more of that.
Still a superb forward pack and the best halves combo in the business pulling the strings.
Meanwhile, isaiah continues pulling his knob.
Down three of four props from the last two years.
