The Roosters were one of the most penalized teams in the competition last year. They try to rectify this by signing Maloney and O'Donnell.

Top 3 in penalties for the last 5 years! Worst offender in 2/5... Maloney & SBW won't help that count...

Well funny that the Roosters lacked direction & solid last tackle options.. :/

So you don't watch origin? You are really missing out.
.

Have to admit I watch it- just don't care who wins- always supported the blues too but can't cheer for any team with tamou in it.
Plus I've spent ten years in Qld and played touch for them so should prob support the Morons but it's all a bit meh to me these days.

Haha yeah fair call - I used to love cheering against the Kiwi-poaching Morons but now the fuckin Blues do it too!
I do enjoy origin as it features some of the top players in an intense series, but I am strongly of the opinion Test footy should become the pinnacle of the game again. It's just convincing the media to spin it that way which is the hard part...
I actually hope the NRL 9s may provide some fun factor and distraction from origin being the be-all and end-all of league as a spectacle for the normally non-league-watching public.

Was only round 1, and they've got new players all over the park. Souths are a settled lineup, wasn't a big surprise that the result ended that way and Maloney wasn't able to do much.

Yes I did, well...I changed my tip to them. Wasn't based on any great belief they'd win, just thought that they could've come out amongst all the hype and put on a strong performance. Especially if the Bunnies started off a little rusty. Didn't happen that way, turns out the Bunnies actually looked pretty good, picked up where they left off last season.

Pretty impressed with the way they created overlaps and space out near the fringes. Not particularly well defended there by the Chooks, admittedly, but still some great work with the Souffs ball carrier drawing in two defenders.
