Roosters 1.72 favorites to Manly 2.10. I love it when we are outsiders
This is going to be an epic battle. We are very much up against it next week. To win this will be the ultimate and greatest triumph in our history.
I hope the media talk up the Roosters all week.
This will be a memorable grand final. I hope its everything as good as the first week of the finals
And $2.10? As Homer Simpson would say when Krusty was going to personally spit in every 50th Krusty Burger...'I like those odds'
I hope the Roosters and their fans all go and get plucked next Sunday. Pluckwits.
I love a Sunday Roast personally.
Roosters deserve favouritism as minor premiers, beat us in the first week, etc. They have much more experience in key positions than the rabbits (who lost their heads out there) and are the toughest opponent since the cheating storm side of 2007 GF. But our blokes with snake at the back, and all the big game experience, aren't going to go missing. Quietly confident....
Having lost 3 times to them this year (4 if you count the trials), it would be sweet to gain redemption in the GF.
The Roosters really deserve their place, but they are very very beatable.
Im very confident, without Snake we almost beat them and they threw everything at us. If Snake plays we win.
I agree he will be better for the run too
Its no surprise that they are slight favourites, we have not beaten them this year and you have to say they were most impressive tonight.
I hope this week is similar to last week, hopefully the chooks get the bulk of the attention and we go about our business.
We need to start well, we cant afford to be 14-0 down again, Roosters defence is so awesome.
Were they really impressive or did their soft opponents make them look good.
What worries me is the Roosters are now in their 6th grand final since 2000 & have only won 1. Hate stats like that. They are due.

The fact they have beaten us 4 times this year should counter balance that @Brissie Kid
What was the 4th time? A trial game?
before the Manly-Souths game Gus spoke to the Betelgeuse Bros, tonight it was SBW.
As we all know, the Media don't like us.
I thought the CH9 camera crew would've told Sonny his hat was on backwards before they went to Air.
Richie Fa'aoso to go B2B.
One vital fact, they got Pearce, and we all know he goes missing for the big ones.
