We can't even control the ball in sunny weather, It's gonna turn into a forwards game and it's going to be a struggle for us with the size factor. Here's hoping the roosters complete at under 50%
Kiks and Curran are great line runners on the edges who'll be harder to tackle if they're muddy. And our backline is dynamite. Burton has looked dangerous at times with ball in hand and aside from the 15 minutes at the end where we went to shit with a million opportunities, Hutchison has combined well in backline movement.

I think if we'd done a few more things right last week e could have notched up 3-4 more tries. I'm not confident of beating the chooks, but I have a glimmer of hope.

We will probably just do the one-out flat b.s again.

it will come down to our kicking game...our ability to pin them in their half and our short kicking game near,their line. Can't give away penalties and need to smash em in defence and force errors

Heavy ground, slippery ball....
Fatigue amd errors in this game aplenty.

The team that best manages where they turn the ball over will likely win, unless it is individual brilliance that decides the result.

Kicking early to turn their forwards around wouldn't be a bad thing, as long as it finds space. Teddy is good at getting to the drop zone and returning the ball on front foot.

I hope Taaffe grounds himself in tackles otherwise he can get driven back.

Early kicks. Burtons boot will come in handy to boot out of trouble. I think the weather prevents a blowout. Roosters generally have poor completion rates. But like Souths last week, i expect them to complete over 90% as we always cop that shit from other teams.

It will level up the game and probably make it a 6 all game
We haven’t been offloading much in tackles, so with a bit of rain tomorrow, maybe the Roosters might take caution too

Rain is a great equaller.If it is wet, it will be played in the middle third .This is the week Burton and Mahoney need to get us home with their kicking game.
