      How things change right , it wasn't so long ago few on here wanted to return Gus and keep the change . Cords played fantastic last week and my point is that it was the fact that Keary wasn't playing that the left didn't fire as expected. Not that Boyd stifled the attack . I think you will find that Angus will persist on the right and develop a lethal combination with Joey . Yes Gus was great on the left when Cords was out agreed . Too many good players what a problem to have .

        Souffs are just a very disciplined team ..except for the eye gouging and the hair pulling !

          We won a grand final with that edge.

          We went a full finals series last year with that edge and only conceded 3 tries in 240 minutes.

          We won 8 straight games this season with that edge, included in those 8 games were 6 wins against top 8 sides.

          Form is temporary. Class is permanent.

          You're right. Don't change what you know works well for you.

            Went to Parra. Don’t think he’d appreciate being called a girl though.

              Yeah lets pick the NSW and Aust captain out of position because we had a winning run without him.

              What’s missing from this argument (and same with the keep Verrills instead of Friend argument) is that the recent winning run was mostly against bottom 8 sides. We would have won those games anyway.

                I was trying to figure out if that comment was in the wrong thread or randomly sexist or racist or both.

                  Its not just about the counts won. I keep saying its more about the when and where a matches penalties are given. I would love to see stats on that.

                    Yeah yeah I know he is the NSW and Aussie captain. What has that got to do with our present form? Latest form is what you should take into account. With Angus playing on the left, I haven't seen our attack play so smoothly. When Angus runs the ball on the left side, his supports back him up in anticipation that he will pass the ball. When Boyd runs the ball, they sit back and wait for his quick play the balls to keep the attack going. Different styles, different players. Angus seems to favour the left side pass with his right hand, it seems so natural. When he attempts the same type of pass to the right with his left, it seems clunky.

                    No player should have a guarantee on any position. Whatever is best for the team. Isn't Boyd capable of playing on the right? After all, he is the NSW and Aussie captain and should be able to adapt. He will probably end up in the front row in a few years. May even prolong his career.

                    Go the Roosters!

                      Our “present form” is based around beating up on teams like Saints, Gold Coast & Penrith. Bottom 8 sides that had given up the ghost. Robbo himself could have filled in on the left and we still would have won those games.

                      Fact is Robbo wouldn’t even consider playing Cordner out of position. It wouldn’t even cross his mind. Why even talk about it.

                            Great to hear George and Tom are playing. Two guys with little match fitness and already poor handling skills can only be an advantage to us.

                              They asked Bennett in today's media what he thought about the book of feuds and whether he'd read it. '... Well, it's quite a big book.' (laughter)

                              I've always liked Wayne Bennett. Don't get me wrong, I like Robbo more, but it's good that two great clubs with two great coaches get to meet on the big stage again.
