I think the Roosters have been amazing when you consider they've made the top 6 with their reserve grade team. They'll trot out a pretty handy team next week when you throw JWH and Radley into the side. They won't beat Penrith or the Storm but they could beat souffs minus fatrell.
They might beat the Titans or Sharks, but that's about it. The Raiders really were poor tonight.

Will be fascinating to see the referee response towards Trent's roosters, after his blast last week.

In years gone by, whenever Ricky had a referee meltdown the referees would scour the rulebook to find the most obscure rules or rules which are never enforced and ping us. Like the classic not touching the ball with your foot in the play the ball despite overlooking it for 200 games.
Well I guess uncle Nick sent a message to the NRL by sending the cheque by old fashioned horse and cart. The horses head was in the cart along with the cheque.

But to be objective there were some howlers but you've got to be able to defend them. This season has totally sucked for the Raiders, thankfully it's not being prolonged.

His bench use is probably the number one issue with the side

Even outside the wackiness and idiocy. He very often just leaves our players no chance by gassing them out

So, in other words, he is still using his bench rotation he developed at the Roosters.

We beat Knights and Parra IMO

Storm/Panthers no chance

Souths without Latrell and Manly would be favourites but we would make it a contest.

It is a pretty sad indictment on the rest of the comp really that a team missing 12 first graders is still the 5th best team in the comp.

I'm not saying we beat souths but last week's results would have absolutely no bearing and you would see a different game.

From last week's squad we add Keighran, J-Moz, Iku, Radley, JWH and Crighton. We lose Manu and they lose Latrell. I think souths still win but we give them a real close game IMO.

Newcastle, Cronulla, Titans, Parra, Manly, and a Mitchell less south's are all teams the Roosters can beat, definitely. Penrith and Melbourne are the only 2 that I can't see the Roosters beating.

Roosters would flog Knights, we're mental midgets. Unlikely to face each other though.

Seems likely you'll get Manly in week 2. Tough assignment I reckon.
