    Definitely cheering for the Cowboys, I fear the plastic club from Bondi might win though.

    Cows all day. I think the entire country (and half of Bondi) will be going for the cowboys.

    Yep you can't get more plastic than being the only remaining foundation club in existence to have played every season since 1908!

    Roosters to represent all the butthurt NSW fans with honour and make it to the GF.

    Roosters all the way. Cows and Broncos ended my dream final and only Victorians and weirdos support Melbourne.

    Can't see why we can't win this one as well. I'm sure big game mitchell will provide a gifworthy moment

    NQ will win this. They are on a roll and Easts have been unconvincing.

    If the Cowpokes can produce an 80%+ completion rate and charge relentlessly up the middle like they did last night and last week, the Roosters will need to be something else to stop them. The Cows seem to have been gaining strength from all the travelling. I don't buy this banged up talk. They were banged up a month ago. They have two topliners out, and have covered them very well. Every team still in the running will have niggles. They picked up TMM who isn't quite Thurston but seems to be learning from the great man at a great rate. They are going to take some stopping.

    Pity for them they haven't got a better goal kicker than Ethan Lowe. This might cost them in the really big games to come. No doubt the great man is lending a hand in this area as well.

    Cows have got this far why not go all the way. I give them a good chance in this one. I thought they were lucky against sharks But last night they proved it wasn't a fluke

    So pretentious they changed their name from Eastern Suburbs to Sydney, as if your club represents Sydney generally, LOL.

    Any self respecting Penrith fan doesn't wish the Roosters any success after what they did to us in the 90's, and how they bitched about the '03 GF loss saying the result would have been different had it not rained. I haven't forgotten the likes of 'Rooster Cogburn' on this forum back in the day...

    If the Roosters play the Broncos in the GF, I can't really say I would have a preference. I might not even watch it at all.

    Cowboys all the way!

    Whatever the result this week my highlight of the season will still be the round 3 towelling we gave the pretender panthers, particularly that beautiful legal pass for the last try.

    Makes me wonder how many convincing and non referee assisted wins the Rorters have had...

    Very few convincing to be fair. 0 were referee assisted though as can be easily determined by us once again receiving the least amount of penalties in the comp and having the worst penalty differential despite being 8th best disciplined.

    The teams match up well and the Cows don't need to rely on the ref so much (unlike Penrith Manly Cronulla) to score points.
    Should be a great game.

    My comment (and I'll make it a "NRL loves Roosters conspiracy" because that what we do here)
    Why dose the team who finished second (Roosters) get to play the team who came eighth (Cowboys)?
    While first (Storm) plays the team who finished 3rd(Broncos)?!
    Even if the eels won, forth would still play second meaning all advantage from been top seed is lost after week one.
    It make you realise that this afl system the NRL copied is [email protected] and pretty much shows the level of dumb that walks the halls of our major sporting codes.
    *I'm sure uncle nick has something to do with it...

    I think Sydney will end the Cowboys run. But I still want to thank them for what they did to the sharks,

    f**k Cronulla.
