    Don’t think the Knights will let what happened against Cronulla happen again, sadly I can’t see them getting over the top of the Chooks though.

    Roosters by 18

    It depends on what team we trot out.

    Being a non Sydney game 3 days after origin with a short turn around the following week I expect Cordner won't play and probably Napa. Latrell and Tedesco will depend on how they get through origin and Matterson still has the head issue.

    Our chances depend largely on whether Ponga plays this game. I reckon he'll play and the Knights will win by 4 thanks to a last minute show-n-go by Connor Watson.

    If the Roosters turn up with anything resembling their A grade they'll win easily.

    This legitimately seems like an impossible game for us with where we are at right now. I do believe we've got the talent to give anyone a run on our day... but we're wildly inconsistent and getting everyone to have a good day at the same time is proving difficult.

    I expect the Roosters to get up comfortably, but if our forwards work hard for each other we could conceivably make a game of it. It wouldn't hurt if the Roosters Origin players were feeling a bit flat after the high of winning Game 1, either. Dan Saifiti is finally hitting some form, so I think if the Roosters focus on making his life difficult and can shut down Ponga, they will shit it in. If they let Dan carry the rest of our pack up the field, and Ponga gets some space, we might cause some damage.

    Logic says the Roosters should destroy us. Even if they rest a couple of players their roster is still far superior on paper.

    I think Dan’s out for 4-6 weeks.
