Spewing Munster is out. He’s on fire this season and so is Keary so that’d have been a good battle

Think Rooster will get us this time around - will be close again. Could possibly swing our way if Cam Smith plays though

24-20 Easts

This time the Storm will have the game won well before the championship minutes and Robbo will be out on the back 9 with Nick begging for more of a relaxation on the salary cap to get another 4 internationals....oh wait this will be SBW's return to NRL so Roosters by 20 with SBW to be glazed in commentary jizz after doing a hitup or 2 and a couple of shoulder charges that go unpenalised.

Expecting the Roosters to welcome back a few players who've been out for this one (and one who's been out for 6 years). Robinson would have been planning for this match for ages. Win this and their top 4 position will be pretty safe, although they do finish with teams 5 to 8, they'd have to lose 2 of those to be in any danger. Lose though and they'll likely have to battle the Raiders in Canberra for 4th. He'll be delighted to be facing the Storm sans their 2 best players.

I think its safe to say the top 4 is all but mathematically locked in. Just look at the points difference.

I don’t think for and against will come into it. It will come down to competition points between easts and raiders. Raiders have arguably the easiest run home; Broncos, Titans, Bulldogs, chooks, Dragons, warriors, Sharks. This is a massive game for us a could well lock up 4th place for us. If not the game vs raiders in Canberra could well be a 4th place playoff.
I’d almost prefer smith and Munster play. We have a habit of dropping games against teams missing key players like the raiders a few weeks back.

If the Roosters lose to the Storm, the Raiders can equal them in competition points by beating the Broncos in Canberra, for which they are $1.15. In that case the Roosters and Raiders will play for 4th place in Canberra in round 17. The Raiders won this game at the SCG just a few weeks back. The Raiders have a much easier run home than the Roosters. 4th is anything but locked in.

Roosters will be too strong and will win by 16. In saying that it would be better for my team if the Storm won, but it won't happen with Munster out. If the Storm are ahead at the break expect Alderley Rooster to drop in and have his usual half-time whinge.

Looks like Smith won't be named - was slightly confident that'd we'd sneak him in there but I suppose it's better to play it safe.

Resigned to a loss - We are going to lack creativity in attack... just hope we make a game of it

I wouldn't be resigned to a loss at this point, the odds should pretty much even up now the roosters have named their side.

Only J-Moz to return. The others (Cords, JWH, B-Moz, Toops and Crighton) not named in the squad at all.

Huge game for Roosters. Can't afford to drop it for their top 4 aspirations.

Not so much for Storm.

Looking at the lineups Roosters should win this easily. At full strength though I think the Storm are too good this year and will probably win the premiership and to everyones disgust send Cameron out a winner.
