I have a sneaky feeling we might finally break the Roosters curse. Just a hunch as on talent it is not really a contest -they have far more firepower.
Round 1 is a great time to get the Chooks. Play them when they are rolling in Round 8 or Round 12 and we probably have none as in previous years. Surely their attack wont be clicking into gear first up (pray)
However they are coming off a long season. Plenty at the World Cup. Controversy in the off season with Pearce debacle.
Keary potentially out Cronk first up.
Most are expecting us to get pummelled. I really think we can ambush them up front and just try and out hustle and out work them,. We have that mentality there with not much to lose and no expectations from the outside we are hunting them. I think we can win this game in the forwards
I have tipped us to run 15th this year but I think we can win this game. Our Round 1 record is excellent over the years.
