    If the Roosters can scrub up like they did in the last game they are in business this year. Suspect they won't have things go their way quite as much this time, though.

    Can't see Napa (hand) or Cordner (concussion) backing up for this

    JWH should be suspended as well but probably won't be.

    Potential to be game of the round.

    However if Roosters Origin players don't back up from injury i cant see them winning.

    Maybe he'll blame the altitude

    First game against Cooper Cronk. This might be hard to watch

    Nor I. But unlike last year's trip to Adelaide, most of the other rep (and retired-rep) players should be present, which is good for the game if not so much for us.

    This is a tough one to pick. I don't particularly rate Storm this year.. but I don't think we'll have a comfortable time of it. 2-3 forwards out could prove the difference.

    That said.. Roosters by 8 with Cronk to have his best game of the year.

    Getting a win in a game like this is a prime example of the reason why Smith retired from origin.

    There is no way Napa or Cordner play and I wouldn't be surprised to see Latrell rested if he still has any stiffness in that neck at all given we have the bye after this game.

    I still expect a tight tussle, could go either way.
