Friend to bench, Radley start

4 day turnaround is gonna be rough on the players..

Lets sign Tahne Milne Give Baptise a go Get rid of Liu..Manu Milne will fix up our problems out wide

Sack the coach same old game play . What do they do at training count their money and rip off fans

Based on the pattern of WLWLWL Roosters will win this one. Bad luck for Manly they weren’t playing us the week after. We are the most consistent team in the comp.

Roosters need a new coach with fresh ideas. Trent Robinson and Jason Taylor are stale with no ideas. Blind man leading the blind. Come on Nick Politis time for a change of coach is needed now and not at the end of the season.

Will need an improvement all over the park to end up a top 8 team. Comon boys

I think I’m in trouble Stephen Bennett... if we play like we did last night anyways...

need to get your team pumping again, play some footy boyz

Let’s see if we can win this one

This is my first post. i have been a loyal roosters fan before the glory days of 74 and 75 as a kid. So... This season has been disappointing to say the least. Player wise a significant number are either unhappy, playing injured or unaccountable for performance. Coaching wise we have a coach who has, and has had, arguably consistently the best roster at club level and we have been spectacularly repeatedly unsuccessful when it has mattered. Shades of another over rated coach previously with us who has moved South. Our spine is broken, our hooker may do 100s of tackles, but so does Matterson and the other forwards as a result of ill discipline and poor skill levels evidenced by completion rates and penalties. Matterson offers little if anything in attack. JWH and NAPPA are yet to make post contact metres of any significance, let alone offload for second phase play. The fastest I saw JWH run today was when he sprinted from the field to be replaced in the second half by Tetavano who’s ensuring next 2 touches costs us 12 tackles in succession. Tetavanos’is handling is terrible, he may have intensity and be a defender who joins a pack of defenders who tackle by necessity given their ill discipline and lack of ball skill. Friend is slow, predictable and cumbersome, his service is always slow as he repeatedly takes a step from the dummy half position prior to passing. Cordner is our running left wide attacking weapon, the only one, aside from the repetitive sweep around play of Cronk to Keary to Cordner. Whilst on Cronk he is playing like any contented 35 year old newly married guy who is expecting his first child after buying a Mosman mansion and who has signed a 2 year contract to extend his time and earning capacity before he moves into commentary. Either he is injured, confused or playing under instructions, if so who issues them.....the coach. Cronk has been a world class player, but not a leader on field, who was surrounded and lead by other world class players both at club level and internationally. His origin world revolved around JT and a dominant pack. It is the culture of the Storm that creates players and refines others, we do not have that at present, yet we boast a roster second to none. Is he invested. Minimal try assists and kicks resulting in tries suggest not. Tedesco over rated and over paid his run metres, which Robinson trumpets, are pre contact as the fullback on ball return. He eats up the ground then and with his run frequency NOT as line breaks or try assists. Manu; at best a park level centre playing out of position who offers no attack, questionable handling and has defensive reads that leave the left hand side vulnerable continually. Ferguson continually makes mistakes at crucial time be it on the field or off, culturally a bad fit for any team, let alone one that is under the pump. How many times do we have to listen to excuses. Kearey trying hard. But he to has one trick shot sweep sweep sweep and either off to Cordner or worryingly delivering misguided passes behind outside supports, like Cronk did today that lead to one try. Previously we were concerned about our inability to breach the line and became over reliant upon the kicking game of PEARCE, we are fast returning to that. LIU is pedestrian, no go forward, no penetration is a poor handler and comfortable with a contract extension. At what point are they to be held accountable, it is a business, they are not curing cancer or putting people on the moon. They are well paid, treated and recruited to one thing.... and that is to play to the best of their ability consistently. There is no such thing as a rebuilding year, or time for combination building they are professional athletes and coaches who like us all live and die by our performances and/or results. Lattrell is under utilised, Radley must start, Tauka must start. We have little depth given we lost Michael GORDON and the decision to release PEARCE may be one we come to regret. We should never buy another back until we Replenish our forward pack with young skilful mobile MOTIVATED forwards. Backs dont win matches forwards win matches especially those that count.

Roosters fan for life but ill say it how it is sick of being acused of not being a loyal fan because i dont beat around the bush and tell it like it is.......... obvious from the start who the referees wanted to win with mciness not getting sin binned for one of the most blatant professional foul you will see... the mcdonald try has to be one of if not the worst calls i have ever seen in an nrl game complete farce... How ever as dodgy as the reffs were the roosters again only have themselves to blame at the end of the day.... as always friend doesnt create enough space for his forwards and halves around the ruck, keary trying a bit too hard and made many bad plays during the game and not giving mitchell any early ball, manu is a passenger get rid of him, aubbo great clubman but again him playing at centre gives us no threat outwide on his side, tetevano hands like feet, liu hasnt done much since getting his contract extension, jwh napa both still struggling none of the forwards bother offloading which is killing our attack. Taukiaho and radley both need to start the game. Getting realy frustrating watching our games so far this year we have the supposed "best roster in the comp" i beg to differ... some changes are needed asap otherwise we are in for a dissapointing year again. Robinsons days are surely numbered if he doesn't adjust his coaching style asap.

That game was a joke clearly the refs were clearly wanting St George to win no way was that a try and why wasn’t Mccinnes sin binned ,I’ll admit roosters didn’t play 100 % but that game was rigged

I parked in Westfield Bondi junction and left my two season roosters membership passes on my dashboard. I came back to my car and some low life smashed my side window and broke into my car. Now I have four season roosters membership passes on my dashboard

You cannot buy a premiership! This whole year has been a complete failure to date. Robinson has gutted a side to accomodate two players who don't wanna be there! Watching this team play is painful and I can't see things getting any better, it's actually embarrassing to watch!

As a passionate Roosters fan I was shattered when we let Mitchell Pearce go. Trent Robinson has it clicked in your head yet that the style of play you seem to persist with doesn't work. Every attacking set is the same, all set up for the big sweep play that ends up with the attack going sideways or Tedesco batting the ball on and it going to ground, Tedesco isn't that type of player! I cringe every time Jake Friend passes the ball, yes he has given his heart for the club but his service is terrible and he hasn't played well for a couple of years now, yet you have Victor Radley on the bench but bring him on and play him in the backrow, the team looks a lot better when he's at hooker. Dylan Napa should be playing for Wyong next week after his lack lustre effort today. How can you sign Cronk, Tedesco and have Andrew Johns as your halves coach yet the attack is continually getting worse??? Joey never played like that so I doubt he would be coming to training and encouraging this rubbish. I can't fault their effort today but if things don't change a premiership is a long time away.

If MacDonald's try was given no try on the field, would there be sufficient evidence to overturn and award it? Yeah nah. The game is ruined by incompetent assholes in the bunker. Do they realise that their job isn't hard and they can easily be replaced?

Unlucky boys, Mccinnes should’ve been binned and no way was that a try by Macdonald. Still a large attention needed in our attack. Get it right boys 🐔

Disappointing display today Nappa is a passenger. We have nothing in attack, relying to much on Latrell! Cronk and Tadesco have not even shown a glimpse of their pay packets. It's a shame we couldn't of stuck with Pearce and Micheal Gordon

These refs in NRLs Roosters vs Dragons are incompetent really that last try from 18-22 points fair dinkum corruption needs to be removed from the game even that the roosters won’t win or doesn’t seem like it it was still corrupt. Please get better Refs Nrl 😡😡😡😡 or is it just me 😒🤔 good try boys better luck next week

How stupid was I to buy Grand Final tickets the other week? Clearly I had more faith in this mob than they're currently showing! And to think we offloaded all our depth to buy two new players! Not like we have many options at the moment. We have nothing in attack and are going nowhere fast. And might I add, what a disgraceful decision to allow Nene's try! The bunker can go to hell.

What is this rubbish!! Is it just me or does anybody else want to see Robbo angry and show some emotion in the press conference. Same with the captain! The fans deserve something after a season that is dying very slowly. Our Attack is the worst I’ve seen in 25 years as a roosters fan and our D again was up and down. Not sure what the dragons did in the off season but we need to copy it. Congrats dragons

This is a very very average team I'm afraid I'm going to admit I was wrong re Pearce / Cronk Pearces energy kept this team on the front foot Cronk is so so slow and he just doesn't suit this team They are so one dimensional Get it to Latrell and fingers crossed is the only play available And that's when Keary isn't passing it to the turf What a massive disappointment Wouldn't have made any difference ,however the game is a farce Insufficient evidence my arse

Here is a tip for coach Robinson....teach your team to pass a ball. He is starting to look a lot like Ricky stuart in 02 where he walked into a team that were gunna win who ever coached them. Not the coach everyone thinks, seems devoid of anything more than basic skills.

Robinson needs to go back to France asap....his coaching style is complete rubbish and a reflection of this team.....

Forget the dodgy try for a moment. We've scored two tries against Souths, one try against the Dogs and one against the Dragons. Can the coaching staff not see the problem? We're not offloading the ball. Our sets are boring and predictable. Five hit-ups and a kick. Its hope and pray stuff. At most there's a sweeping play between Keary and Latrell, which is being overused. There was nothing particularly special about the Dragons' attack (a try off a kick, a barge over, a dummy and run). Yet they keep the ball alive and create holes through offloads. Until we start doing that, expect the same result. All the best teams in the comp this year are offloading the ball. Why aren't we doing the same? The first time we did it (50 minutes in) we scored quite comfortably. Its a waste of ALL our attacking weapons, not just Tedesco and Cronk. I am sorry to be negative because today the effort was there in our runs and work rate. Its just becoming extremely frustrating to keep playing the same way when it is evidently not working. Offload or perish! Dragons: 19 offloads. Roosters: 8.

Cronk can keep a level head when the game is on the line, but he cant bring a team back from behind to save his life. Politis has killed our club with his disloyalty.

Dragons a way superior team, and good luck to the club. No surprise in the result at all, predicable, if you watch the Roosters closely. On this seasons form will struggle to make the 8 . Fact.

I’m starting to get real sick of watching the Roosters play because every single game we play the refs are favouring the opposition, dragons player first half didn’t get sin binned, our players get tackled mid air and no penalty, we get no penalties whatever when we should have, and that last dragons try was clearly a knock on... therefore clearly no try yes we knock on the ball every now then but overall it doesn’t help that the whole game is always flowing with the opposition Napa is useless, looked slow, weak and had no energy since the start We need to hold ball if we want a chance beat whoever we are versing + the refs So frustrating 😪

Trent Robinson… pathetic again. No doubt in the press conference you’ll say we were good in patches and there’s room for improvement. FACT is you can’t coach, go into politics, with the dribble that comes out of your mouth, you’re perfect.

Hey all it's the Roosters style of play ( like the coach says) only difference is every team knows the Roosters style of playing except the Roosters themselves. I believe the senior playing group is pissed still about Pearce.

I am a roosters supporter getting annoyed with the team. You guys get paid a fortune yet you dont want to play . Maybe time for mass changes. Coach included.

Well outplayed by a better team. Our attack has looked pedestrian all year and it showed again today. We look so much more likely when we create second phase play, but it's like they're told not to offload. Discipline with and without the ball is still poor. Our error rate is still the worst in the comp - hard to win many games on the back of that.

Time to admit we just aren’t very good. Squad pretty tasty but performances awful. We look like our moves are rehearsed and if anything goes off plan we have no idea what to do - basically we are puppets. Time to look at the puppet master I think as he drives the style of play - been predictable for years now and whilst a lot of players have come and gone the coach has remained. Time to answer some questions Trent!

our tactics have not changed the last 2 -3 years, no off loads for second phase play, forwards not dominating, backs starved of good ball with room to move, need to buy good ball playing forward or two.but we'l get there roosters. just a prediction / thought uncle Nick to make a move for Bellamey

Looks great !!! BUT Now you need to look into sorting out drop off and pick up - it is appalling- !!!!!! Spend some time and money fixing it please !!!!! Maybe look at other airports and see how they handle it - for example Melbourne drop off and pick up are in two seperate areas!!!!!! You only need to read all the comments to realise everyone thinks it is an issue which needs to be solved

Agree with pick up and drop off criticism. Also needed are more toilets inside the terminal. One set at each end of the terminal and one in the middle is nowhere near enough when there is distance to walk and large numbers of passengers. Ridiculous.

Needs more bars 🍻 🍷
