    The commentators on Fox said that he had a shoulder and a wrist problem that he was playing through, it explains some of the poor passing

Same as keary, our left edge will light up again and strike fear. We played with heart tonight, i cant fault the boys too much. A full 17 is something we havent seen in months it seems, god i cant wait.
        Rads tends to defend differently to Jake.

        In fact Radley defends like a classic hard hitting middle forward even whilst at hooker. He misses a few because he looks to hit hard where as Jake is Mr Effective. He doesn't look to break any bones, he just makes his tackles efficiently and is often 3rd man in ala Cam Smith.

        No doubt we'll look a lot better with 9. Friend and 13. Radley.

              Friends clean up work around the ruck has been missed and his return will allow Radley to play in his best position as a ball playing lock . We've had more than our share of bad luck with injuries this year but it has given some young players plenty of opportunities .
              The big problem is Keary is just one head knock off having the rest of the year off, and with that our back to back chances....

                If Morris passes the ball to Tupou the Roosters win the game. If Cordner catches the ball the Roosers win the game. If Tedesco grounds the ball in touch the Roosters win the game. They need Friend & Keary to win the competition but it wasnít because those 2 were out that the Roosters loss.

                  Would have given us a better opportunity to win tho.

                    Could have both available this week

                    https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/07/01/...in-experience/

                    The Roosters' captain Jake Friend and star playmaker Luke Keary are bidding to lead more than 900 first-grade games of experience back into the premiers' line-up to arrest their mid-season slump against Wests Tigers.

                    Friend (ruptured biceps) and Keary (concussion) will push for returns from injury ahead of schedule for Friday's clash at Bankwest Stadium, with the pair to be assessed based on how they pull up from Monday's training session.

                    Trent Robinson will name his 21-man squad for round 16 on Tuesday, with Kiwi Test prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (hamstring), veteran English flyer Ryan Hall (personal matter) and Tongan tyro Sitili Tupouniua (illness) all certain inclusions.

                    Keary is firming to return in the halves as well after sitting out the last month following a heavy head knock against Newcastle that cost him a NSW Origin debut.

                    The Clive Churchill medallist had originally targeted next Sunday's home game against the Cowboys on the Central Coast for his comeback date, but has passed all return to play protocols and completed three weeks of contact training unscathed.

                    Friend is considered less likely to take on the Tigers, but remains a chance after playing through a ruptured biceps muscle on Anzac Day.

                    The Roosters co-captain spent the first month of his recovery with his right arm immobilised, but has since progressed from running three weeks ago to full-contact training as well.

                    Between them Friend (241 NRL games), Waerea-Hargreaves (208), Keary (122) and Hall (321 Super League and three NRL games) boast a wealth of much-needed experience for the Tricolours, who have won just one of their last five games.

                    "[Keary] has been a pest," Waerea-Hargreaves quipped when asked about Keary's recovery.

                    "The first few weeks he was recovering but he's back to himself now and being the annoying sort of guy he is.

                    "I guess he'd be itching along with Jake Friend there who's pushing the limits and doing everything he can.

                    "To see us older boys there isn't the best but we're doing everything we can to get out on the pitch."

                    Waerea-Hargreaves sat out last week's nail-biting loss to Melbourne with a hamstring strain picked up playing for New Zealand.

                    Despite the two-point loss to the Storm in Adelaide, the Roosters found more positives in that performance than several of their wins earlier in the season, Waerea-Hargreaves taking pride in the emergence of the club's latest batch of rookies.

                    "It's been hard but it's also been a positive sign to see the younger guys the way they've come through and play the way they've been playing," Waerea-Hargreaves said.

                    "They played well against the Storm on Friday night so to see these guys grow is a positive sign. Obviously for us guys not playing, it hurts to be sitting on the sidelines.

                    "But at the same time we take the positive out of anything and to see these young boys grow and we're really looking forward to our next match."
