  • NRL Nines, defending premiers

    With the NRL Nines in Perth on Feb 14-15 and the World Club Challenge in England the following weekend Feb 23, our team will be split between two hemispheres and it’ll be interesting who goes where.

    In the training photos, there’s a lot of the younger guys in with the main group and what looks like two squads wearing different strips.

    We have the trophy for both weekends and with a $1m up for grabs in the Nines, it’ll be worth winning both too.

    Will be two straight weekends of what to look forward to.

    Carn the Chooks!

    Is it 1M for the winner Skeez or is the tournment worth 1M?
    How much will the Roosters get if they win the WCC?

    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.

    Chook.

      Total prize money of $1 million is on the line, with a bonus $1 million available for any men's team that can win both the Nines and NRL Telstra Premiership this season.

      We could definitely get the bonus $1m for both titles.

      I would love to see our trophy cabinet right now!

          You'd think we would take a much younger team to the nines and have a similar lineup to the WCC last year.

            Nines is Mickey Mouse footy. All the stars will be in England. The leftovers will be in Perth.

              You’d need plenty of time.

                It will be a Bears/Flegg composite at the Nines...but I love that style of footy so hope we go well. Good points Skeez.

                  Because the main team will be in St Helens, I actually would like to see the younger guys together to see who stands out. Especially with 4 less players. Both defending and attacking.

                  And I seem to remember seeing the Manu fend, step back inside being first unveiled to me there.

                    Given there will be no first graders, we will exceed expectations if we have only narrow losses. Still, we're the Roosters so you never know. Good chance for some younger guys to have a go on a bigger stage with no real pressure.

                      Not worrying about injuries will make this Nines more enjoyable.

                      I went to the World Nines and had a great time.

                      Chook.

                            Sevens were my real favourite back in the day.
