    Probably how he feels. Him and his team have been raped all night by the refs he’s probably sick of it. I know if I were raped for 70mins I’d probably have something to say too so lay off the rapee and just be grestful a undeserving NSW team were handed the victory for fuck sake..

    Slater absolutely should have been there. I hate Qld, the Storm, and for most of his career, Slater, but the way some on here are carrying on is a joke. He tried to milk a penalty from the field goal, "oh no" nobody has ever tried to milk a penalty before....fuck me.....he was actually one of the few Storm who had a dip all game for mine and for the crowd to boo him after the game, get fucked.....comfortably the best FB ever, give him some respect.

    You want to give it to someone, give it to Munster....what a scum bag, actually kicks a guy in the back of the head, lucky not to be sent off.

    Mighty Fishes, you've obviously had a couple mate, but seriously, Roosters lost the penalty count, Storm got three consecutive in the first half to help them out, couldn't believe it when people on my FB feed were blaming refs for the storms prediciment.

    They were simply outplayed today in every facet of the game and to do it with Cronk in his condition in my view was one of the great victories we've seen in many years.

    Cooper Cronk, deadset, last week and this week, just a superhuman effort, can anyone see Pearce doing that. Folklore stuff.

    Good win by the roosters. What cronk did was truly amazing.

    This premiership doesn't have the off smell of the last couple.

    Well said Ice - agree with your entire post.

    Chooks looked the best team post Origin, they tapered off leading into the finals but stormed home and that GF was utterly dominant.

    On Cronk; amazingly gutsy stuff but could they not have just played him as a trainer and had the same effect?
    Probably not I guess and I also think it was the impact it had on the other blokes more than anything else.
    I know if I was slacking off during a match and I looked at the bloke next to me plugging away with a broken scapula......I'd quickly pull my head in and have a fucken go!

    One thing I'll say about Pearce, his timing is atrocious.
    2014 - he stuffs up is dropped and Trent Hodkinson (who struggled to make last years wooden spoon team and then Manly's bench this season) happens to fall into a SOO winning team.
    2018 - I'm 99.99% sure he would have partnered Cleary in SOO this year and jagged a series win.
    2018 - a bloke with one arm, who barely made a stat....happens to take his spot in a GF victory.

    It shows what rorting the cap can achieve, throw the fkn TPAs out the window

    But as usual the NRL is in the back pocket of the least supported team in the league

    Fingers crossed they get done for rorting

    Strong game by the Roosters to come away with the win. Gutsy performance by Cronk even if his stat line didn't reflect it. I was dead set certain he wouldn't be able to go tonight and not only did he, he lasted longer than I expected.

    Didn't think that the Referees had such a crazy impact on the game as I didn't see many harsh penalties blown. I forget who went sliding in against JAC on his try but felt that was lucky to not get called a penalty try. Again no real impact on the game.

    Luke Keary finally stepped up, but credit to Cronk again for helping take the pressure off him by being around the general area to keep defences making sure he stays honest. Big example was the field goal. No way was Cronk ever taking the shot, he got the ball on the forth to force a rush up on him and get the ball center field getting it ready for Keary. Another small note, it was Radley? Who Slater tried to get the penalty off of for tripping. Definetly not a trip and when the commentators were there questioning it. I was so upset because he did just plant his foot, and instead of going around Slater drove his knees into the player to milk the trip.

    Didn't even realise Hoffman was retiring until the Roosters players bought it up at fulltime. Blake Ferguson has looked good all year, and looked good again tonight. I genuinely had to check his age because I thought he was like 30+ at this point but is only 28.

    Another player that went big for mine was Joseph Manu. He helped protect Cronks edge IIRC, and just looked good all game. I didn't watch many Rooster games this year and when I did I just watched Latrell and Tedesco, but dead set Manu had a stellar game tonight, I always thought he was overrated and nothing more than an average winger and didn't rate at center but tonight he was good.

    Also there was a little push by Smith on Cronk when he made the pass on the play before FG which wasn't needed. Nothing in it, but just one of those things. I think Smith may go out this year. Similar to Origin he doesn't want to do it when the fans know or expect it and doesn't get fanfare response. Instead let's the likes of Billy and such get the fanfare on their way out.

    Yep, agree. I think the mental impact of Cronk being there on his teammates would be massive. They'd know they simply couldn't slacken off for a second and they didn't. Conversely, for the storm, they'd be thinking "why can't we bust this line, they've only got half a man at halfback" and that would be frustrating. To be honest, I'm amazed they went at him so rarely and he actually came up with the tackle of the game on NAS on the try line. That was MASSIVE!

    I'm over the Rorters talk too, people are so Salty, it's just shit form. Get over it people. I hate the Roosters as much as the next person, but give them their due or shut the fuck up.

    Players rating on foxsports gave Keary a 10. I think everyone has got a little carried away with that first try assist to Tupou, which was a cracker, and he did kick relatively well and had to take control because of Cronk, but there is no way you can throw an intercept pass that leads to the oppositions only try and gives them a sniff and be declared as having played the perfect game. 9/10 for mine.

    I actually think Teddy was pretty unlucky. His effort to overcall Keary to set up that try on the short side was huge, he ran hard all game for over 200 metres with 2 Try assists. Both worthy.
