    Our starting forward pack is better than theirs.

    Roosters forwards will be come out firing. They been copping all off season and now all week that they are powder puffs.....

    Keary is a massive inclusion for them. He loves to score tries against us. Might put $10 on him being anytime try scorer!!

    Their backline is basically an origin / international backline. Shits all over ours. The issue will be that their forward pack usually fires up against us. If they're forwards are angry and put on a show, then their backline could put 40+ on us, based on our defence from last week.

    Yes the Morris twins are rep players, but they're both well past their best.

    Mitchell might also have a massive game with Keary back and actually get involved. If our right edge is as poor as last week then they will have a blast attacking us.

    There back 3 are strong on kick returns. Our kick chase needs to be spot on. If we close down there back 3 on kick returns then im confident we will beat them as there forwards arent that great. None of this getting lazy bullshit. Tighten up our fucking def and we can beat them.

    Jesus Kas looked skinny last week. I actually think he will lose his x factor because he won't have the size to do what he used to.

    Any side you play that has C.Cronk as halfback is going to be incredibly tough to beat.

    Also surprised they have Napa on the bench. Is he coming from an off-season injury?

    Napa has been shit for them and that's why he's benched. All his good for is a couple of swinging arms these days, should probably look elsewhere to spark his career again.

    hoppas and jacko need to be on point.

    The mozzles maybe past it, but jmoz is still the premier defensive centre in my eyes. Nothing is getting past him.

    Keary is the key, he always plays well against us

    I still have nightmares of his short side raid on the 5th setting up the opening try for Alex Johnson in the 2014 GF

    I don't follow the Roosters form closely, but I have memories over the past two years of him almost single handed shutting down opposition forward packs. Seems like when he gets fired up he can pull out some massive performances, but maybe his issue is consistency week in week out?

    Defensively he's had some good games, attack not so much lately. He doesn't look to be making the impact a player like him should.

    Fine's an edge forward that can play centre though, we need a proper middle forwward coming in.
