    At least those 2 refs aren’t bad, and it’s not Cummins, Sutton or Perenara

        It’s a shame the weather has gone downhill since last week, hopefully we don’t play dry weather footy in the wet like round 1

            Really?
            Yes they will, but I think that helps them more than us!

              So if the refs you mentioned are against the Roosters than why are they on top of the comp?
              If the Roosters turn up to play they will win if they don't turn up they will lose no matter who the refs are.

              Why the fark anyone takes any notice of modern media is beyond me. It's all click bait populist crap aimed at the lowest common denominator.

                  They have big forwards who will tire quicker with wet ground under foot. Our pack is much more mobile. Don’t make excuses cause of the weather. I know our coach won’t be making such ridiculous excuses.

                    There will be referees and it could rain. According to some we are now no chance of winning. Looking for reasons for us to
                    lose might help compensate some of our supporters if we do lose. It was raining the refs were against us blah blah blah Makes them feel all warm and fuzzy inside to be able to blame something or sometime. I really hate rain as an excuse. Both sides will have to play in the wet.

Our experienced forwards will school their pack of children. Let’s hammer another nail into Shebold’s coffin.

                        Souths did well against us in round 1 with big forwards...
                        We like to attack and the rain wont help. Fact. Our completions hopefully will be good.
                        No excuses dude, just stating an opinion that's not to your liking

                          And I respect your opinion “dude” I just think it’s weak to suggest the rain will work against us cause we like to attack when both sides will be getting wet. And guess what? Brisbane might be shit but they like to attack too. Pathetic excuse really. It won’t be weather that beats us. With the side we have the only reason we could lose is poor attitude.

                            Not if Sutton is the ref as he will run around with an umbrella up when Brisbane have the ball shielding the beloved broncs from the inclement conditions.

                              The papers say the Roosters should be beaten by the Broncos tonight. Well they would if they weren't filled with lamentations about someone, as an ALP supporter, I wouldn't lament myself.
