    I agree with you, unfortunately. But they are vulnerable to any injuries - if they lose Reynolds or Sammy they will be weakened by 50%.

    A short 5 day turn around and he must be pretty sore too. Hope I’m
    wrong but I think no Cords or Toops this week.

    As long as Teddy is there we will be ok.

    He is playing out of this world...if Lattrell was 10/10 last week, Teddy must have been close yesterday.

    Drongos, wests then the bye. all rested and ready to go
    I'll be surprised if Boyd and Toops play.
    Lats probably not either.

    Aubs to left second row.
    Morris onto the wing.

    Collins to the bench.

    I think the Roosters will be to strong for the Broncos but I think the week after that against Newcastle up in Newcastle will be the real tester for the Chooks. That will be the 3rd week that they have been on the road.

    I don't think we're 'due for a loss'. If you've tossed a coin and come up heads 8 times in a row, the 9th toss isn't due to be tails.

    We'll probably lose some more games before the season is out, but our draw is looking okay.

    No need to rush Morris. We need him 100% for Origin time. Otherwise I'm not sure who else we have to play fullback?

    Souths have played the bottom 7 sides and only 2 sides in the top 8.

    This emphasises how good our start to the season has been.
    And when you factor in our relentless injury toll in virtually every game it really has been the most remarkable winning streak.

    I think Friday night will be as tough as the Broncos game as we are surely due for a loss and all the ingredients are there. Especially the precious Broncos getting their 7 day turnaround and us a mere 5 days.

    But how could we possibly bet against this Roosters team? They're incredible. The most spectacular Roosters team I've ever witnessed.

    That’s right. Souths have had it easier and will now start finding it tough to win. They just beat the panthers with a dubious call in the last few minutes. If we beat the broncos, which we should, Souths should start to lose touch with us and we can get a break on top. We’re doing fine!
