  • Well done Roosters, too good, B2B bound imo

    I haven't watched the game nor does my heart want to let me but I have been told the first half featured some scintilating football from the Roosters.

    I will have a few drinks and watch a replay of the game.

    Well done ROosters, the Rabbitohs live to fight another day but I honestly think we will go out in straight sets while the Roosters will go on to B2B premierships.

    Well done, you have a special team, enjoy it.

        Good on you mate. Hard to face any kind of rugby league after a loss, let alone the Chookpen. Good form.

          it is a special time and we all should remember that the gods of depth and roster management are on our side but maybe not MRC and health. Just show why no one has been B2B since 93.

            Thanks Pride , but never concede while you are still kicking mate.

            Can I add that Souths fans (in general) are without doubt the best sports in the game. I never feel awkward or threatened amongst you guys. I'm sure every club has exceptions to that though.
            To our fans we tell you
            If you have not been told
            We play this game for all of us
            We play it from the soul!

              Well said PRIDE. I couldn’t go to the south’s forum and post like that if we had lost. I admire your humility and sportsmanship.

              you are welcome here anytime.

                  Thanks HC, I hope we can bounce back with a vengeance next week. Tall order to make it to the GF and it would be one for the ages if we played the Roosters in one.,The two oldest and proudest clubs and the biggest rivalry in the NRL. I really hope it happens one day.

                    TBH I don't hate the Roosters as much as some other clubs, Brisbane and Melbourne I dislike way more. Its a fierce rivalry between the Chooks and Souths but I respect your club they are a great club.

                      I could only last one post last night haha thanks BP. I did read some of the threads by it aint my natural habitat but that was the walking dead last night.

                      I hope we meet again but its a tall order.

                        Yeah having said that, if Jared misses a week (but shouldn't miss a final for a little trip imo, but they have rules around prior charges), he will be fit and firing for the GF should you win the pf. I read Cordner and Tupou should be fine for the prelim. I give you a pretty good shot at the B2B still. I hope Souths can stop it but being honest we don't have the cattle to beat the Roosters or the Storm.

                          Hi Jack "Pearce off" Gibson, lol. Not conceding but after getting a flogging like that you can see I am not a glass half full kind of guy lol.

                          We are a punchers chance next week, I think we can beat Manly or Cronulla but it depends on how are forwards go. If they can lay a platform for Murray and Cook we are a chance and hopefully we have some cattle coming back including Sammy and Gagai. AJ and Graham need to be on the wing, Adam D FB, Gagai and Roberts in the centres but defensively we have problems on the edge and we need to fix that to have a chance.

                          Also thanks mate, I have quite a lot of mates who are Chooks supporters and we get along great especially in weeks we don't play against each other.

                            Believe me it wasn't easy, but, at least most of you on the Chookpen are really nice people. We support different teams and the clubs somewhat loathe each other but banter between opposition fans should be fun and I don't take the sledging too seriously here on the Chookpen. We all love the game of Rugby League its just we belong to different tribes of Rugby League lovers.

                            Thanks mate but I will try not to wear out my welcome, usually only post before and after Souths v Roosters games though sometimes I get on for a read.

                              Thanks Thirteen, too good, hope you and your kids and parents enjoyed the game. You sound like a great Roosters and Rugby League supporting family.
