Roosters have 7 of the last 8

Head to Head
Roosters 15, Tigers 8

The last time the Tigers beat the Roosters without Benji Marshall was in 2003 (before his debut)

Robbie Farah has missed the last 3 games against the Roosters. The results of those games were
Roosters 42-28 - 2012
Roosters 44-20 - 2012
Roosters 56-14 - 2013

The last time Farah played against the Roosters, the Tigers won 19-12 (in 2011)

You now have the added "bonus" of having Anasta.

Chooks in a canter to be fair.

Injuries have hammered the side.

3/4 of the first choice spine is missing along with Simona, Nofa in severe doubt, Galloway playing busted and Gavet gone on top of the pretty heavy injury toll.

Keep the for and against in reasonable shape and the WT will have done themselves a good service.

Another year heading the injury count FMD

pearce to dominate against a busted side and justify being labelled "origin material"

If the Tigers somehow beat the Roosters here serious questions must be asked about the Rooster's premiership credentials. The Roosters should put us to the sword to the tune of 30 at least.

I thought Sue was back? Damn

Roosters should do us well.

Fingers crossed we get through unscathed. Will have Farah, Simona, Sue and probably Gavet back for the sharks.

Dunno why I'm feeling Tigers on this one. They seem to win games when no one expects them to.

Things that have to happen for the Tiges to win.

Forwards at least match it with the Roosters.
Win the battle of the penalties.
Halves to click and carve.
Not to let the Roosters get points on points.

If the Tigers are to win this game they need to not let the Roosters score tries in batches. That's where the Tigers lose games. Richards needs to be an absolute prick with the kick offs.

I'm feeling bizarrely confident but all logic dictates a huge win to the Roosters here. The Roosters backrow and centres around about the same part of the field and Brooks and Austin is going to hurt badly.

They will inevitably win the penalty count, our opposition always improve their discipline just for us.

This is the dreaded ?should? win match complete with opposition fans writing off their team to the tune of 30 plus. Last year we, for the first time in 9 years, actually won the vast majority of these should wins. We will see if that continues.

Quietly confident about this one. We've been building over recent weeks and I just hope the rep weekend hasn't trimmed our sails too much.

Us by 14.

Chook.

Interesting to see how Casty goes.

It was mentioned by Dave Middleton that should he play, he'll be the 4th French born player to play in the NRL.

Only two others I can mention Jason Baiteri and Jerome Guisset ironically played/worked under Trent Robinson.

Casty is out injured again. He did his hamstring at training during the week.

Don't see enough points in us to worry a strong roosters team. Austin at 6 should create something. Hopefully we defend we enough to stop it being a rot. I'll say roosters 28 tigers 12
