Discussion in 'NRL' started by Albert Rosenfeld, Oct 20, 2017.
I was very encouraged by last night.
No Cordner, no JWH, or Manu and Aubusson and yet we still should have won even though everything went against us.
The forwards are hitting form. The backs are deadly. The attack is improving. The defence is the best in the comp. The desire is enormous.
Even if we don't finish top 4 we'll give the comp a huge shake. I think only Souths can match our best.
Probably not the greatest time to bag the roosters. With our bye next week that will be 8 points out of a possible 10 during origin period.
We are tracking ok.
If we don't make top 4 i don't fear playing 'away' games against any of souths, dragons, penrith or warriors.
I wouldn't fancy playing in melbourne but a bit of luck with the draw and that won't happen.
No reason why there cannot be a Sydney Roosters vs Melbourne Storm Grand Final.
Tommy, why are you watching if Godner didn't play?
We still had GoaTrell and Vlad the Impaler; both of whom are welcome to spit roast me whenever they please.
The GOAT of hitting the upright from dead infront, costing the team a win against a very poor Melbourne side on the night.
Latrell Mitchell had a bad miss in his goal kicking, just as Lionel Messi did against Iceland. That does not erase Latrell's status as GOAT, jut as it does not erase the same status for Messi.
Well, there *are* those GI comparisons...
Latrell does not go missing in games. It is his team mates who go missing in getting him quality ball.
When he gets quality ball Latrell is a game breaker. His tackle bust stats are phenomenal. 18 tackle busts so far in State of Origin. He will soon be recognised among centres as GOAT.
A good centre would go looking for the ball, if his teammates aren’t getting the ball to him then he should go in and get it himself, but he doesn’t cause he’s to lazy and just stays out wide doing nothing. There was a game not long ago, before Origin, where he touched the ball twice. 2 touches in 80 minutes of football. And his defence is still terrible, Chambers got around him so many times in origin it wasn’t funny. All his defence is is trying to grab the back of collars and drag his opponent, then pushes down on their heads. Real grubby player but doesn’t get called on it
If Latrell is grubby, what the f**k is that wannabe tough guy chambers?
What exactly makes him a “wannabe tough guy”?
Chambers is the best centre in the comp. wannabe tough guy well pick a fight with him and then tell me who the tough guys is.
Well I have to agree with you here!
Storm had a few out too I think and they're a bloody good team too!
A big blow for us with GI out next 5-6 weeks!
When we play you I worry about Latrell running at Gagai. What excites me is Cookie tearing you guys apart in the middle!
The Roosters can still make the top 4.
Oh i dunno...being involved in just about every push and shove in every game, his constant niggle-especially funny after latrell mitchell has owned him in the first two origin games. He's a f**king grub, so he fits in perfectly at the storm.
