    Great news, Cordner is made for the captaincy.

    I am hoping Cordner does the on field leadership and Jake the off field i.e. Cordner talks to the refs and Jake does the post match pressers.

    Poor Jake was out of his element talking to the refs last year.

    Who knows if that will be the break down, but it certainly will ease the pressure on Jake.

    The article I posted the link to (se previous page of thread) gives the breakdown of the following positions within the squad -

    Captains - Boyd Cordner and Jake Friend.
    Vice-Captain - Jared Warea-Hargreaves.
    Club captain - Mitchell Aubusson.

    If any catches the buses from the SFS to Central Station, be aware they have changed their drop off point. Instead of turning into Elizabeth Street, and then going around and dropping you in Chalmers Street right alongside Central Station, they now drop you at the last bus stop in Foveaux Street, which is about 30-50 metres from Elizabeth Street.

    I and many other people found this out the hard way last night after the Bulldogs game. Looks like this has occurred to du the construction of the Sydney light rail.

    Just thought some of you may find this of interest.

    Yeah that happened to me last night, wasn't sure if it was a one off. I didn't catch the bus to the game though, do they leave from the same spot?

    Yep, left the game from the same spot, outside the SCG.I don't think it's a one off Valheru as Elizabeth Street right near Central is dotted with partial road closures where sites are being set up for construction of the light rail.

    Time will tell I suppose.

    Love the juniors at the Roosters. They certainly aren't the transit lounge they used to be. Watson and Matterson are both absolute stars.

    Still, I hate your shit club. Bring on round 3.

    1996 game v the Bronco's was better- Monday night 34k in attendance- Junee's try to level it and then the stuff up by Andrew Gee on the tap restart for Cleary to kick the winning penalty goal(12-10) - Rugby League at it's best as Rabs described it- I remember the night also as the pick the margins went off - 1.3 mill or so - only 3 live tickets left for this last game of the round - one had Roosters 1 to 12 / one a draw/ and one Bronco's 1 to 12- Hopefully a Chookie fan won it

    Not a great result but could be worse as well. There are 8 rounds to go, one of which is a bye for us. Hopefully it is more like 6 weeks and he gets a game or 2 in prior to the finals.

    Looks like it will be sink or swim for young Connor. I don't think we lose anything at all in attack with Connor there, defence is the issue and of course goal kicking.

    Better hope we score all our tries under the posts.

    Is SST back next game? Hope he's been getting re-acquainted with kicking tee. Aside from Tauks do we have any other realistic options? Latrell?

    If Latrell was kicking at AFL posts he wouldn't even register a behind with half his conversion attempts.

    So hopefully SST is ready to go.

    Meanwhile Jake Friend has broken his hand at training and will miss 4-6 weeks.

    Injuries are killing our season at the wrong time just like in 2015.

    It is not quite as dire as 2015 IMO, it has happened 6 weeks earlier than 2015 and both players should be back at the business end.

    Injuries are just part of a long season and if the team is serious, they just need to get on with things, win our fair share of the last 7 matches and sneak in to that top 4 with (hopefully) a healthy squad come finals week 1.

    Man, the injuries to Gordon and Friend are cruel and come at the wrong time

    Friend we can cover and if he's back in 4 weeks it may be a good thing as he'll be rested
    But losing Gordon is going to hurt us - especially as Connor Watson is likely going to play dummy half and we don't have a recognised kicker

    I'm really trying to have a glass-half-full attitude with all this, I really am, but its not easy.
