    I’m surprised there isn’t a thread on this. I just heard Paul Kent suggest there’s a concern that Jake may have ruptured his bicep. It goes without saying, I hope this is not true.

    I hope that it isn’t true, he’s just come back from injury

      Robbo said he had an ankle thing that's not serious at all.

        Kent did say it was just a rumour.

        Said he spoke to someone from the Roosters team (female, didn't recognise the name) who said she was unaware of it and that the players had already left so she couldn't confirm. The players have their medicals tomorrow morning so we'll know more then.

          There was definitely something wrong with his arm or shoulder. One arm was hanging limp before he went off.

              I didn't see any sign of an ankle injury, but he hurt his right shoulder or arm. in a tackle with about 18 minutes to go and went off straight after that. He doesn't go off for just a stinger. Came back on with heavy strapping on his bicep with 6 minutes to go. He wouldn't have come back on if it wasn't so close.

                Don’t believe Robbo when it comes to injury talk.

                  NRL Physio has posted about it and The Sporting News has picked it up.

                    And saying that to return after rupturing your bicep is pretty much impossible, but who knows?

                    Btw, I for one have no problem in Robbo not being as honest and open about what he says to the media. No other long serving coach in the history of the NRL was as honest and open as Robbo was, but he has tweaked it a bit. So long as he is honest and open with the players is all that counts.

                      That's a lie then. The only female in the roosters team was Dallas Hood and she left years ago. How would she know?

                        I agree. Why show your cards to the opposition. I’ve learnt with Robbo not to pay too much attention to the Tuesday side.

                          And Dallas’ wife Jamie Soward.

                            Did we end up signing Cameron king from parra?

                            would be handy now.
