are all out injured this week. If they were all available surely we would beat the dragons.
Throw into the deep end coming off rehab or sickness in Asu Kepaoa, Jacob Liddle and Kelma Tuilagi.
Others have niggling injuries.
We are showing some "....."

Its funny how a lot of people bag Madge for the teams poor performances,but if you look at that list,have them ALL fit and playing combined with who we are fielding today suddenly we have a top 17 with some pretty good depth to call on...that list is 1/2 of our NRL team....we are going ok for a makeshift team,today will prove how much stealth we have to keep winning,its all up to them today,the last 2 wins were gutsy,hopefully they are even more hungry to prove themselves....

He deserved bagging for the seasons start...he is not immune
They played like they had no idea
Credit where its due hes changed something, injuries and suspensions
are something all teams must deal with
Its the beauty of sport, the unkown, its why many of us are still here
because we know things sometime can change suddenly, for better or worse

Not sure what Trent Robinson's excuse can be. He had injury issues last year and still fielded a team with players we could only dream of. Not nearly as many injuries this year but missing some key players in his squad that he hasn't been able to replace - yet. A reality check for a coach that has been blessed with the best of resources.

Their spine is cooked.

Teddy is out of form, by his standard.
The halves pairing is not balanced, two running 5/8s with no organisational skill.
Lacking at hooker... seen some class from Verrills in the past but he's been very ineffective.

I'm not mad at it either.
Good to see the Roosters losing and struggling.

That's why we need to lock up Hastings particularly if he keeps his form up and is injury free.

Hard to believe he would consider going back to the Roorters where all his dramas began, but then maybe he would want to prove a point.

Just lock him up!

And also suspensions have caused Radley and Hargreaves to temper their marginal play which has made Keary and Walker "shy".
