    Massive game for us. Glad the roosters won against the warriors. Big forward pack like the dogs. Will need to stop them getting a roll on in the middle. Need a great kicking game from Benji. Wish Fergueson wasn't playing, very good player. Really need to win this to show all and sundry we are not pretenders. Thoughts please?

    Every game is a must win, don't want to see back to back losses, that will be a worry...

    Very important to bounce back to continue the momentum.

    agree with better to beat warriors, if they were 2 loss in a row they would be more fired up

    Doesnt matter how fired up they are. The fact is that THEY are catching US at a bad time, coming off the back of a harsh loss and a week to freshen up. We will be hungry and wanting to prove to everyone that we are actually the real deal, as well as wanting to get over this Monday curse of ours. They may come at us hard, but we will absorb, repel and fire back, and the Benji/Widdop Show will destroy them.

    When I know who the ref is, then I'll let you know my thoughts for the game.

    Roosters won't be taking it as lightly this time, our forwards are finally starting to fire up. its a long season.

    Will be interesting to see how Pearce backs up after what will be his 14th lacklustre, uninspiring appearance in the sky blue.

    Fun fact - he is the most capped NSW player to never play a Test. Although QLD has Andrew Gee (17) and Ash Harrison (15).

    The only thing that is making me nervous about this game is that it is on a monday. We have played 4 Monday games this season and we have lost.... Correct! 4... The only games we lose have come on Mondays. But, hopefully, through the law of averages this works out to our favour, we have to win one eventually...

    The lead up to this game has an easier feeling than the lead up to the bulldogs game last week, I don't think the Roosters will be as challenging as the dogs were. Hopefully we don't have Shitton refereeing this game, and if our team is full strength we will win this by 10, Benji and Widdop will terrorize Maloney and Pearce on the edges

    LMFAO! STI's pack had over achieved until Dezzy exposed them for the gnomes that they are, Roosters pack smacked the Dogs pack.. STI should be proud of their achievements thus far.. Roosters will be @ full strength V STI for the first time in 2015 [Minus a few]. Roosters by 20!

    So they'll be at full strength for the first time, minus a few?
    Ladies and gents, we are in the presence of a complete moron. Be kind. Minipeni ain't playing with a full deck.

    The fact that the game is on a Monday is scary. Saints have only lost their games on Monday's this season. Bad case on Mandayitis for the boys.
