Two years ago the second game of the season was at Brookie against the Chooks. It was a Saturday night game and we had scraped a win over the Cowboys in the first round.

I waited 30 mins to get in a second or two before the kick-off.

The atmosphere was sensational and in the end the club had to open the gates as the queues outside were so long. Posted crowd was 18000 but the tip was that there was more like 22-23K in the ground.

The chooks basically smashed us that night though we scored two or three tries to keep the locals happy.

I can't wait for Saturday March 11th as it is 10 years since we have had a home game for the opening round. Did we have a night home game at all last year???

Now that we have a 'real' team this one should be a beauty!!!!

Manly :clap: :clap: :clap:

I was in our corporate box, talking us up to all the banks customers (Roosters supporters). KA stand area. If we belt them that day, we would have had massive crowds the next game...

Like CW says, we have ateam that other teams supporters are saying, "how can they have so many good players in it, and still be under the cap" for the 1st time in a hell of a long time.

Rose, Cuthbo, Ballin, Bryant, Witt etc in PL also makes us pretty potent.
