While there are always a few gripes we can express about our team, certain players, our club's executive, each other, etc etc, how good are we going compared to many of our rivals? The brouhaha concerning Souths reaction to losing Sandow is hilarious. Merritt has come out saying it was Souths fault they lost him. The Roosters are another fancied rival that have unravelled spectacularly since the season opened, as is Parra of course as well. There are rumblings of unrest in the Titans camp. Panthers have the sacked coach albatross around their necks. It is already looking like a long season for some of our chief rivals. Which is a cheering thought even in a week when we ourselves are coming off a loss.
