Josh McGuire
vs

Big Jared has filled the gap left by the Roosters’ previous international enforcer Adrian Morely. JWH ticks all the boxes: big, cranky and funny accent... but can he manage to monster the young Broncos ram-raider and help the Roosters rise?

He is part rock-star and part footballer, but that part footballer can still hit pretty hard. Like a Queensland version of Paul Sironen, the booming Bronco wraps on the head tape and steams onto the field to damage his opponents.

Shaun Johnson
vs

He is the older half of the young Warriors playmaking pair, which means he also gets tagged as the wiser one. Does wisdom lead to Warrior wins or is there more to Maloney than meets the eye?

With speeds to burn and a passing game to rival the magic of Marshall, there should be no stopping Shaun from tearing apart opposition teams. Is Johnson the key to a Warriors premiership?

After blowing a half-time lead against the slippery Eels, the Shire boys will be looking for revenge against their sandy friends. Can the Sharks stay in touch with the top eight while their stars are swanning around in the sky blue?

Three wins in a row and just two points out of the tip eight... can you believe we are talking about the Titans? A win against the struggling Sharks will surely make the punters stand up and take notice of the Titans... surely?

 

Beau kicks for Beau

Benji kicks for Beau

vs
Tuesday 5th June
Tuesday 5th June

There has been nothing funny about his form this season and when the Tigers send the ball out wide Beau has been there to deliver the big plays. The captain of the Wests Tigers wingers deserves a nice pat on the head for his efforts.

While he has shown that he can chase his own kicks and score, it is also nice to be able to chase someone else’s kicks as well... like a good team player. So when Benji kicks, Beau is always there to enjoy the spoils. Good boy Beau!

Sir Kurt of the Sideline

Not easy Campese

vs
Tuesday 5th June
Tuesday 5th June

It is not much fun leading your team into battle when you are stuck on the sidelines, but Captain Kurt will need to get used to it this season. Maybe a gig as a trainer like little Alfie Langer might help lift the teams spirits and make them feel like they still have their leader?

One too many goose steps meant the end to this Campese’s season in green. Now it is going to be a long cold season on the Canberra bench for Terry, and he will need to rug up to avoid his green turning to blue. Cheer up Campo!
