  • Official Match Day Thread: Roosters v Raiders

    No excuses about missing players. There’s enough strike power to beat these pretenders! JWH needs a big game and Angus needs to keep up last weeks form. It’s time to cement top 2.

    Go Roosters!

        If the refereeing is fair...every forward pass pulled back, including those by the Raiders.(unlike in their last match.)
        Our legitimate passes not called forward, ...calling them forward robs us of momentum and tries.
        Raiders players not allowed to flop on our tackled players, hold them down, rough them up in tackles, hit them in the head, and hit them late/high.
        Then we're in with a chance.
        We need to play mistake-free footy.

          Could go either way, whoever wins it’ll be by 2.

            I second this today.

            Big shout out to the Roosters faithful attending the game. You guys deserve a good show.

            May the best team win.

              I think they may pull this off today the Roosters.
              Go the Chooks.

                  I want a good game from both sides with a Roosters win by 10.

                  So many good matchups accross the park.
                  Build the wall. Keep the Drug Lords out!

                    I also think we’ll win this. Go Easts!!!

                      Whats the bet that Latrell will be out to terrorise Jack Whiton ???

                            At the moment, half an hour before kick off, the weather is better than I thought. Sunny but a bit chilli.

                            I have yet to experience a win down here driving down here for nearly a decade. A win will make the 3 1/2 hour trip home more bearable.

                            Easts by 1

                              Raiders should be too good in the conditions down there. We can't beat them there against weaker raider teams than this one.

                              Let's hope we are not smashed and at least keep this close.

                              Raiders 1-12

                              But Go Easts.
                              Who said 13 was an unlucky number? 13th Premiership in yr 13 on our 100th anniversary of our 1913 premiership.
