    Boyd Cordner, Angus Crighton and Victor Radley are the three best specialist second rowers in the NRL (Tyson Frizell is a utility forward, not a specialist second rower). The problem with having the three best specialist second rowers in the NRL is that the interchange will be reduced to six in 2019. Four of those interchanges will have to be props rotation. So how do you interchange the three best second rowers, and not your hooker, when there are only two interchanges left for the coach? This is especially a problem because the Roosters first choice hooker Jake Friend is in decline and needs to have a replacement towards the end of each game. The current hooker replacement PNG rep hooker Kurt Baptiste is very good and adds value to the team.

    The Roosters will not want to lose either Boyd Cordner or Angus Crighton (currently NSW second rowers), nor Victor Radley (currently only 20 years old), who is likely to become the world's best second rower in 2019 or 2020.

    Really? How do you arrive at that conclusion. Remember, I was talking about 2019, when all three will be at the Roosters.

    Three best second rowers, or second best third rowers?
    Worth thinking about.

    That’s funny, I remember not that long ago you were calling Angus Crichton the most overrated player ever

    Lets just rename the NRL section "Roosters with Rosenfeld" and be done with it.

    Gus said himself that Cordner is done as a player; Crighton only has 9 fingers; and who or what the f**k is a victor radley?

    Matterson is already better than all three of them

    If all 3 are on the field together, the 2019 comp will be as good as over by mid season.

    I know your threads are basically a meme, but Frizell is better than all three of them.

    They're better than kikau Sutton (lol) sims and Yeo... You can't rank players of 12 rounds of footy and forget the past 3 or 4 years.. You gotta stop overrating every Penrith player you're starting to make us look bad...

    Yeo has been good for a couple years now.

    Kikau, no.

    Sutton, on achievements, sure.

    Sims, maybe a few years back.
