    I am somewhat nervous about tonight's encounter. Will Nat make a fist of the lock position? Will Jared and Lindsay back up successfully after their concussions last week? Will Holmes take the field, after being initially named on the wing? I am hoping that, despite our injury run, we will still be too strong for them tonight. I am wary, however, given their form last time at home against the Knights, who are a solid side.

    Anyway, time will ultimately tell. In the meantime, it is game day, ladies and gentlemen. Fire up you mighty mighty Roosters, fire up!

    The Chooks should win this comfortably. I am hoping my Cowboys put up some kind of resistance, but I am very pessimistic about our chances.

    You guys certainly did for most of the first half. I was pretty nervous there for a while, as your team was playing out of their skin. We finished off the first half well, and then kicked into gear in the second. I am not sure what happened to you, to be honest. It seemed as though the half time break was your biggest enemy. I feel very sorry for Paul Green, as he is one of the true gentlemen of rugby league.

    No, that's okay, I think we are full up at the moment. ;) However, if Fitzy decides to eventually leave, which I think will happen sooner or later unfortunately, we might be happy to reconsider then!

    Been saying for 18 months now we should go after Fitzy. I reckon he'd bring some steel to our defence... Swap?? Even throw in boom foward Cooper, he's just starting to peak

    A swap between Fitzy and Green? Ah, no, I don't think so! ;)

    Nice try adding the deal 'sweetener' in Gavin Cooper.

    Boom forward, LOL. Anyway, chin up, hopefully you will turn the corner. I don't mind the Cowboys. Went up there in 2013 and had a nice time. I am looking forward to visiting your new stadium one day.
