    This is gonna be hidious to watch...

    The Roosters are full of class out wide and will demolish us up the middle.

    Glad Napa aint playing cause we could need a few players from real nrl to cover the guys that woulda died on the field after his hits

    I don't see us getting close

    Roosters were embarrassed by the Broncos and will be looking to rectify that, We lost a game we should've won to average opposition

    The packs are a mismatch so the Roosters should have no problem marching up the field

    Hopefully they prove me wrong but I think this will be an absolute hiding

    Roosters are hot and cold.
    You don't know which side will get off the bus to borrow a Wayne Bennett term.
    I don't know why their best side would show up. This is a game they will find it hard to get excited about. They'll think we are easy beats not worth their effort.

    They'd be right. The dogs only had to produce 30 good minutes to put us away. The roosters are a better side, they probably only need 20.

    I think we could give the roosters a solid run. I reckon we have a chance of winning

    We will try hard... But this will be like the panthers... We struggle to score even after dane makes players liike speed humps we still can't hit the desired target...

    I'm sure those type of plays will come natural, most of the times things just don't go our way, we wll need all the 50/50 calls this week and hopefully cause an upset...

    But its hard to see a win here

    They key for us is to just keep the ball in our hands, we made good progress against the Bulldogs by actually trying to get some repeat sets in the second half. When we have the ball give it to our ball players & strike weapons in Barnett & Gagai. If we do that, our defence has been okay enough to not be a thrashing. Unfortunately all we've really shown so far is that we like to drop the ball which will allow the Roosters to annihilate us if we do it enough.

    Roosters will be too much for us to handle. But I hope we score points and not concede too much.

    If Gagai plays like he did on Friday he'll give Mitchell an absolute bath. We'll be able to get some points out of that.

    Just crossing my fingers that we don't play like we did against Penrith otherwise it will get embarrassing quickly.

    28-16, we will look in the game through a bit of luck through our outside backs but won't really get ourselves close to looking like winning

    I have a weird feeling about this one. Not sure why.... Either we win by 12 or lose by 12. Time will tell....

    lol slots in the first 41 minutes the Dogs produced 60 seconds of good footie and was enough for them to hit the lead and never lose it. Mind you the geese helped them more than a little.

    I still can't get over leading 6-0 with 16 seconds to go, Lamb loses the ball inches out from their line and they are allowed to score!

    Okay watching the replay it was Daniel. Dropping the ball instead of scoring really hurtnus and turned the game around.

    It was Dan Saifiti coughing it up mate and to be fair it was about 40 seconds.

    Geez mate that's bloody harsh saying ALL WE"VE SHOWN IS THAT WE LIKE TO DROP THE BALL ...really I think we have shown a xxxxxx site more than that . I think that is just negative crap to be honest and not letting the guys know that effort is appreciated and they are trying bloody hard mate ...

    It is harder to defend Ethan when the ball is turned over too many times in one's own half, added to the amount of ball we dropped.

    In fairness in 6rd we are averaging 72% completion...

    Effort is great though when all that effort is tackling ur way to a loss the effort isnt enough.
    More effort on ball control will get us further in any game over effort in tackling.

    All that is true but it just pisses me off when someone comes out with rubbish like that. We have shown a hell of a lot more than just how to drop the ball and **** like that makes me angry ....Don't forget we are still only 6 games away from 2 spoons its not like they have a heap more experience yet , but they will , infact we have less experience in the team than when we got those 2 spoons...
