  • I don’t mind losing because we can’t win every week.

    But it I hate being robbed whenever we play Brisbane away.

    • It is what it is.Brisbane can celebrate all they want at this time of year. But it matters nothing because they won't be celebrating at the end of the year.

        His defence was especially good when he was in the bin.

          I agree he worked hard tonight but actually liu ran for 105 m tonight our most with our forwards and angus with 92.

            Depends which stats you look at, when I looked at Foxsports at FT Crichton had more run metres.

            • Have we finished a game this year with 17 fit players yet?

              Racking up all those early tough wins will be huge as we probably drop a few games around Origin now.

                Collins confidence has been shot since he got dropped a couple of weeks ago.

                Hall terrible first game although he can only get better.

                Mitchel - did he play ?

                Boyd - Wanker.
                Hall was fine.

                • crichton had an outstanding game . on top of a good game last week. the team looked very tired. robbo needs to start thinking rotation ,cronk, keary, teddy, latrell, joey, jwh, sst, aubbo, gus, maybe even liu, ikavalu all need breaks and games off this year. but im sure he has it under control. lets not under estimate the mental pressure the media has heaped on this team this year.

                    Which is basically every year.

                    Boyds only contribution these days is to dive.

                    But if people didn't think that was a fix before the Keary non penalty then what about afterwards?

                    Most blatant penalty all season.

                    Disgraceful.

                      Still not sure what his role is, but with no Boyd or SST, I would of thought some go forward was needed, Collins was ineffective, thought we were short a few hit ups, we already have aubs there who plays the roaming forward role with no straight up hit ups, with Angus doing a similar role, i thought it left us another forward down.

                      butcher is is getting better every game though, making some tough yards.

                        Agreed 100%. Thought it was his best game in a Roosters jersey tonight. Always involved and has that knack of bouncing out of tackles.
                        We deffo looked jaded tonight. Manu looks fatigued/injured and will be looking forward to the bye.
                        Hall gets a pass mark from me. Carried the ball up and didn't look timid considering the injury he had.
                        Keary quite and slightly annoying how for such a good player that there is nearly always a couple of rushed passes leading to drops.
                        Considering the turnaround, injuries, possession stats and a referee who gave us pretty much nothing, can't really fault the effort but I agree with Brain and we may cop a few more losses if the others up their game against us. It's no easy ride as premiers and we will need to be even better than last season to win it.

                          Good to have positives, but he did have an extra 10min on everyone else, but he is there to control the game, thought he went poorly tonight.

                              Let's not forget that halves go well when their forwards are dominant. We missed SST in his second stint.

                                I thought it was a tough,good match and both forwards did there jobs against each other well, it was made for a smaller man to win it, somehow Milford did. We were off tonight big time, injures short turnaround, will be a good test v Knights next week up there.
