5 Reasons to love the Roosters ....
1 Honestly Sydney, could you really cheer a side that not only hails from Victoria, but brought Wrestlemania to rugby league and cheated Nathan Hindmarsh out of a premiership? p 2
Dylan Napa Plays like he were lif ted straight from the Book of Revelations. And given the shoulder charge is again legal in rugby league ... well, the Fox Sports Lab will likely need a ‘body count’ category for this Roosters prop who tonight looms as the most dangerous redhead since Chuckie. 3
Underdogs Everybody loves an underdog and the Roosters are certainly that. Especially given they will either be: (a) missing a star halfback, or ( b) playing a star halfback who is missing an arm. 4
Defence Roosters coach Trent Robinson likens defence to a living, breathing thing. And certainly the way his mob tackle — alone and for each other — it’s hard to argue. Indeed, tonight the Roosters will be out to prove they boast a better defence than even the Melbourne Storm’s legal counsel. 5
Mitch Aubusson Undoubtedly, the Roosters have some real champions in Boyd Corner, Latrell Mitchell and Luke Keary. But if your son was ever going to be an NRL player, you’d hope he were like this bloke. And if your daughter is bringing one home ... yeah, then you’re definitely praying it’s someone like ‘Aubo’.
