    Can't complain we are getting the rub of the green this year w some of our draws...Roosters getting pummelled both physically and on the scoreboard by the Storm...they look battered and ripe for us next week ...as long as we get through unscathed this Sunday..

    Jinxes ... :joy: rugby league is synonymous w injuries - anytime that a team survives a week without an injury is like winning a mini lottery.. like I said as long as we get through warriors Roosters have been bashed and bruised and a little more softer for our monster pack..

    If Walker is ruled out with anything serious - expect Manu to move to the halves and Joseph Suualii to potentially debut in the centres

    On that game, how good is Harry Grant! Holy crap, he is going to cause a lot of teams a lot of problems for years to come. Including NSW unfortunately.

    I hope they don’t lose too many. I want the chance to beat them at, at least salary cap standard for a normal team.

    I hate to rain on your parade mickey , but the Rorters did play some excellent footy tonight , but were simply outclassed by a team that were better in every facet of the game - including determination .

    Realistically our boys will need to have everyone at their best both in attack and defense , plus some advantage in refereeing decisions to be on level pegging with those Steggles chooks with or without injuries .

    These steggles chookes are certainly ready to be eaten on Anzac Day . I could be wrong but there's every chance this new team THE BIG RED VVV ,might just be up there with the BIG BOYS, Penrith,Purple Scum , we shall get a better idea next week ......in HOOK we trust ......

    Roosters have a 9 day turn around. They’ll be fine. They’ll be hard to beat on Anzac Day.
    But before we start talking about walking through the Roosters we should probably focus on winning tomorrow’s game first.

    Agree
    love the way the Dragons have defended their territory this year and even some of the tries scored.
    But we still need to improve our attack and error rate and maybe change the tactic of happy to give away too many six agains by slowing the ruck down

    it’s bad enough nearly all media incl the Naysayers Gus etc singing the teams praises loud so early in the season
    I prefer the Hook and supporter humble approach and fly under the radar
    Let’s see how we go tomorrow as roaring favourites
    I feel the media are almost cynical at the moment with the stories already written and ready about our bubble bursting by the knives thrown again at Hook

    Fine sufficient even if that
    TBH careless Grade 1worst case
    Anyway they can give in him grade 5 intentional
    roosters have a habit of challenging judiciary and getting off like during the week
