Roosters want help
SYDNEY Roosters greats are calling on NSW fans to put aside their tribalism and cheer for the Rooster as state pride goes on the line in the NRL title race.
The opening fortnight of the finals has been disastrous for Sydney teams. Manly, Cronulla, Penrith and Parramatta have all been eliminated, leaving the Roosters as the Harbour City’s last remaining hope.
So Sydney fans are being urged to grab a latte, jump aboard the Roosters bandwagon and cheer for the Bondi boys to stop the trophy heading to Melbourne, Brisbane or Townsville.
“We are the only Sydney team left,” former Roosters champion Luke Ricketson said after the Western Sydney surge ended when the Eels and Panthers lost on the weekend.
“You’d hope that everyone would get behind the Roosters.
“It would be good to keep the trophy in NSW.”
Roosters legend Minichiello agreed.
“You don’t want someone from Melbourne or Queensland winning it, do we?” Minichiello said. Anthony
