Mid-season grand-final for us.

Playing a desperate team coming off the back of successive losses. We just gotta play exactly like we did against the Dogs. Make them work coming out of their 20, control the ball, starve them of repeat sets (no penalties) show them we aren't afraid of getting into a grind but will do it on our own terms.

Work RTS over (he is still getting used to playing FB) and attack them through the ruck.

RTS more than anything. Widdop and Marshall showed how to contain him regardless of whether it was wet or dry. Brooks and Moses will need to be just as clinical as they were last Friday to put them down there and continually apply pressure. Will also be a big week for Dela Hoeter if picked who will have the assignment of marking Jennings

We're due

A bit off topic: Does anybody know how bad our record got against Parramatta when they were a real bogey side for us?

You could say we are due to beat the Rorters, although the WT have a habit of playing teams into form which is a bit of a worry.Totally agree Benji and Widdop's kicking game limited RTS time and space with the ball which restricted the Rorters primary platform of attack.

We lost 8 games straight against Parra between 2005 and 2008. (I was always grateful for the Cowboys knocking them out in 2005!)

By the end of that run, we had played them 18 times for 4 wins and 1 draw (so a win % of 25%). Since then, we have won 9 out of 12, giving an overall win % of 45%.

Thanks for that Juro, geeze that was a bad bogey, seems like it has reversed now.
I sometimes wonder as well what would have happened if they had beaten the Cowboys. A Parra friend of mine always blamed John Morris for costing them that game.

maintain the rage (another week) the rep games are on this weekend. still 10 days to go.
too long. would have been good for us to go into the Roosters game with that momentum and game plan from the dogs game. instead most of our team goes aways on rep duties, then comes back and tries to regroup for a friday night game.

pierre, wasnt that the game with ryan at fullback and we lost in the dying seconds?
Nope that game you're thinking about is round 8 2010 at Campbelltown, we were up 8-0 at one stage & lost 12-8 in the last 5 mins

Sheezus he must have had a bludger of a game that arvo- they got belted 29 nil! Then again it was in the days before Johnny Cronk became part of the scientist lab-rat crew at Sharks.

Hindmarsh was returning from injury and they decided to rest him in preparation for the GF. That sort of arrorgance deserves to get crushed 29 - 0 in a Prelim.

[quote="supercoach"]Big hard fast pack usually brings us undone. We will be competitive but I doubt we will win. I still think our defense is a issue against big mobile forward packs but it is getting better[/quote

Yes, it's not so much which team it is that's our problem , But as you said, the type of team it is
Teams with big fast ( and hard) forwards who are prepared to run onto the ball hard and can keep it us, usually wear us down.
But there's been some times this year when we have withstood long stretches on our line , I hope we can do that next weeks cause they will be coming at us all day

I don't think so, the Roosters are on the decline by the looks of it.

If our blokes can beat the rorters then that will be an indication to me that their progress is going better than expected.
