Latrell going to cop a suspension for his wrestle session ?
it's under the rug now I'd say

Even though Haas got suspended and fined 10k and Kelly 5k by NRL for similar incident that didn't include arrests...

Are Souffs that good? Were we that good in the Dogs Trial or they just off the pace? NFI- just know ,that we gotta win the middle, to win this game . Send Burgess/Tatola to Lala off the kick off.

Dogs looked alright till they lost Kikau. Reckon they would have scored a couple more tries had they had him on the whole game. He’s going to be the X factor for them me thinks.

That's if he doesn't keep knocking himself out trying to tackle one of the smallest players on the field.

We also crammed most of our **** football into that 10 mins.
Don't think Kikau made Blayke kickaut on the full, made Toby drop it twice, was offside inside their 20 etc

It's probably a bad time to play Souffs, they haven't had enough time to be moody yet.

They have a mix of guns and nuffs. Just hope we start well against their middle.

Because of the Charity Shield will they be a game ahead in match fitness and combinations?

Always hard to tell.

Souths started slow last year, so will be looking to get out well and Trell is a big part of that. Just need Ronnie to stay away from him and go at walker instead. Walker gets stupid when he's angry, Trell goes super saiyan.

Disgraceful.

No d***h*** policy certainly does not apply to some players in NRL.

Some role models…

Souths are probably a top 4 side this year. So this game might be a good measuring stick to see if we truly are cooking. Looking forward to this one, a good match up to start our season.

I do agree that Souths will be up there again. But I think it is too soon for a measuring stick though, we regularly perform poorly on the first round. First round is generally a bit hit and miss for clubs as they build match fitness and get into the season. The roosters round 6 will be a much better indication as to where the are actually at. Hopefully we win them both!!

dogs are tripe

they will ruin kikau until they get a halfback and a proper fullback.

As the first half of the trial was pretty serious, I am hoping that that half counted as Round 1 bad performance :cool:
