Even after 2 wins I can't see us beating the Chooks. The_Fanatical_Rooster The_Fanatical_Rooster
I can it ....if they move up in defence, offload the ball in the tackle and support Dufty by their play defending field position.
If they mount their defend on the back foot he will be under all sorts of pressure from the last tackle kicks.
The roosters will apply a lot of pressure to try and rush the Dragons into making basic errors to get repeat sets .

Teddy out I believe. "Concussion" ?

Will help us - but I can't see us within 20 of them if we play like we did yesterday.

Yes, that is my understanding. If HIA protocols are followed properly, as they should, I honestly cannot see how he could even be considered for selection next week. I actually would be disappointed if they were to neglect their duty of care in that way. Brett Morris is more than capable of filling the void, as he has already proven.

I think we will win, but I don't believe it will be the walk in the park that many are predicting or suggesting.

I agree - they MUST obey the protocols … ;)

Yes, I would imagine so at this point. I think Ryan Hall is okay for the time being but, with him, who knows! He has had a very rough time of it over here. I think it will be best for all concerned that he returns to the Super League, and hopefully to some reasonable form there before he retires.

He has been a very good winger for England/GB over the years. He does turn 33 in November though.
