    I’m currently burning some sage and have my healing crystals out for them.

    We literally just won a game without any first choice spine players and scored with 11 on the field lol

    Apart from the top 4, the rest of the comp is just junk.

    This. Post Vietnam Lieutenant Dan could score a try against our defence.

    Of course it is "only the knights". How do you reckon Penrith would go without Edwards, cleary, luai, api and kikau or souths without latrell, reynolds, walker, cook and su'a.

    I know you don't want to admit it but it is pretty impressive.

    Yeah, I'm just having some fun. Although, Sam Walker seems to be an adequate fill in (actually he craps all over any other half you have apart from Keary) and Verrills must have been close to first choice at the start of the year if he had not been injured.

    We knocked over Melbourne missing Api, Cleary & Edwards. Well Edwards started, but didn't last long.

    Yes both true. Verrils was probably always going to start by end of season and Walker would have played some role even if Keary/Lam didn't get injured.

    Gotta say...

    Verrills n Walker look like the future of that club, couldn’t be more impressed with em both. Whoever is managing that player farm at the Roosters deserves a raise...

    Eggs on the faces of those who said “the roosters are gone for the year” after kearys injury. Absolute horseshit thing to say at the time, not just with the benefit of hindsight...

    The only thing that eclipsed those statements for sensationalising injuries was Corey Parker and his comments last round when Nathan Brown went off and later suggesting that if he was out for the year “That’s Parramattas season gone”...

    Corey effing Parker. Who the hell signed him up to Fox.... all the insight of a toilet brush.

    Anyway there’s severe danger what with players like verrills n walker coming through, the Roosters club could actually become “likeable”.... oh dear...
