Clearly we're coming off a really demoralizing loss and coming up against one of the best clubs in the competition. In all seriousness, if we get all our lads back, I think we can sneak a win. Even if one of the key spine guys are out, we will lose by a ton. I believe this is what AOB is also currently thinking.

In all fairness..... We should welcome back Pearce, Dsaf, Best and Sue this week, with Klem and Ponga back.

Toohey is reporting that Fitz and young might be dropped with Toa playing and Jones taking Fitz's spot and Sue on the bench.


Jsaf playing with a bit of a ankle problem at the moment.... So you would think he might come off the bench and Klem start

Wow that would be huge and a first for AOB, dropping a regular from the team for not being up to scratch and rewarding someone who has gone above expectations.

Quietly confident thinking we can get a win here. It's just about must win territory I think too. To get our confidence back and beat a team like the Roosters.

I'm okay with Young being dropped for To'a. Can't expect a rookie to play week in week out and perform. I think it's better for Young's development to get some rest.

Fitzy for Jones is what everyone in Newcastle has been calling for. Great news.

No real x-factor off the bench like Watson but it’s not a bad side.

Barnett has been average at best this season. Wonder why he hasn't been at his best this season. Hopefully he can step up his form and start dominating during our finals run.

Good to see Watson start. Offers something different from the get go. If he starts on a regular basis, he will sign that extension immediately right?

So much for To'a coming in.

Probably last chance for Dom though, needs to have a really solid error-free game.

Don't like Lachlan on the extended squad either... Just get a feeling he'll find a way into the 17 somehow.

Also get the feeling Walker will be throwing rainbow passes and catching out Young on several occasions.

But on a positive note, with Mann in the side, we’ll be able to counter Walker’s rainbow passes with hospital passes.

AOB has been copping a hammering for his post-game conference and using the disruptive week as an excuse.

But NRL also showed this little graphic... Our last 10 games against the Roosters. Brace yourselves, expect the worst and you can't be disappointed.

I don't think the Roosters form against us in the past is why we'll lose, and probably soundly again. I think it's primarily because Pearce is having another week off. I don't know if anyone has noticed yet, but we kinda suck a lot more ass without him on the field.

Shaking that monkey off our back is way more important than our past history. Someone has to step up and own this team, especially because there's going to be a time in a season or two when he's not there anymore. Then what?
