    Pffft. How about the one where Gordon tore them to shreds and set the new points scored record for us.

    We have a similar quality team. Only a shitload better halves for this match.

    Listen Mr TinFoil hat, like has nothing to do with it. My memory is still fresh with the floggings they gave us. Never write off champions and GI and Sam are champions. Better than anything we have at this point.

    Gus used to say this about Laurie Daley "don't poke the bear, Don't antagonise him". He reckoned when Daley got fired up he was almost unstoppable. GI and Sam are both like that. Applaud them onto the field, give them mementos for their visit and a little gift for their kids. By the time they realise they are in a game it will be too late, Waqa will have a hat trick.

    Mx don't take yourself too seriously all the time. This is just banter, just don't wake the bears.........shhhh be very, very quiet. We are hunting wabbits.......

    Guys Rabbits are shithouse, make no mistake.

    Thats not being over confident, just telling it like it is. We should expect to win and we should win well.

    If we get our backs involved I think the Souths backline can be picked apart.

    I thought CHN's was very slick. I've never seen him as mobile as he was on Sunday in attack.

    Other than in the halves, our main advantage over Souths is on the bench - our interchange forwards easily outweigh theirs in regards to impact.

    Still can't believe that Farah can't crack the Top 17, even with Reynolds injured.

    My hat is very stylish. I think MX gets it a bit rough here.

    As for Souths, we should win this. They have a few great players but overall it's ours to lose.

    And ofcourse our international wingers.

    Souths biggest advantage should be the centres. But Inglis returning from an ACL injury is obviously in the same boat Whare was in last year. And Gagai is the opposite of most players. Hes actually poor in club games and goes to another level in rep games. Or atleast he did at Knights.

    I think they're vulnerable outwide. Blake. DWZ. Yeo. CHN and ofcourse Kikau hitting their fringes with good size and pace should create alot of opportunities. As should whoever plays our other centre spot.

    Obviously we need to show up to destroy them. But I think the upside to losing to them twice last year is we will not take them lightly. Likewise a poor start against Eels will be a focus point this week.

    No guarantees in footy..but this is a great opportunity to put on some points and for Maloney to show what he can do.

    I am sure the same things was sad about Roosters over Tigers last week. Early season is hard to predict we should flog them but same was said last year too

    The main difference this season is that I honestly believe only two teams will fight it out for the spoon.

    The rest will be a real shot at making the eight. Talents been spread out but to the point the teams legitimately improved and it will be a tight squeeze.

    Manly and Souths are spoon favourites for mine.

    A little respect for the opposition goes a long way. The Rabbitohs are a much, much better side than they showed last game. They have several players who would easily make our team. Inglis, Gagai, Chrichton, Burgess, etc. It's a tougher pack than Parra. If they come ready to play and continue to play well for the 80 we will have a very tough game. They will miss Reynolds though.

    Gagai is maybe the most overrated player in the sport. NEVER puts in at club level

    I rate our players. I just dont rate our coach.

    But it just takes a bit of effort for a gun roster to slaughter a weak roster . Souths are weak at the moment.

    I dont give us a hope in hell against Storm though.

    True. All it takes is one game of effort though.
