No crowing going on for the Roosters in this here rugby season of 2015 in Australia.
You as an online sportsbook fan in Australia must have asked yourself the question : Has anything good come out of the Sydney Roosters’ 4 losses in a row? Well maybe not, but Trent Robinson can find solace in his team’s endeavors as they battled against Cronulla, Brisbane, Melbourne and St. George Illawarra recently. The Roosters is an Eastern Suburbs District Rugby League club based in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.
Thumbs up at least for their bravado, as they fought hair and nails, trying to dive down into the green behind the white line. How much consoling Robinson needs is something else, given how success has been elusive, to say the least. Roosters have another chance to gain victory against the young ‘uns, of the Wests Tigers team in an upcoming showdown. The Wests Tigers are based in Sydney’s Inner West side.
Can the Roosters beat the exuberance and flightiness of youth?
Whatever exuberance and flightiness the Tigers are reknown for sure will surely test if Mitch Aubusson and Aidan Guerra can manage to get a couple of tries in for the sake of the Roosters. This may not be the opportune time to bet on Benjamin ‘Ben’ Barba, the 90 kg 2012 Dally M winner, either. ‘Ben’ Barba primarily plays at fullback and Five-eighth in the National Rugby League is currently playing for the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.
But perhaps he may have his day on the field, some day or so his online sportsbook fans hope. But right now Barba has not succeeded in commanding a starting position at the Sharks. What’s happened though is that the ex-Prince Regent of Belmore has been sitting on the bench, watching rookies Jackson Bird, the boom youngster and Valentine Holmes produce a five-eighth and fullback respectively. Holmes primarily plays fullback, wing and centre.
Giving Barba a chance is a gamble for Flanagan
So, Shane Flanagan doesn’t know what to do with Barba who can only go on one of the two back-line positions. However, with winger Sosaia Feki sustaining an injury, Holmes has had to move over which may just give Barba the chance to prove himself on the position he adores. This would be the first time since the poor chap left Brisbane. Given the form Holmes has been in it’s a mobile betting moment for fans should Flanagan give Barba this opportunity to prove himself.
The St. George Illawarra Dragons, is an Australian professional rugby league football club, representing both the St. George region of Sydney and the Illawarra region of New South Wales which has won 6 matches in a row, may just beat opponents Manly. Another opponent, South Sydney, based in Redfern, a suburb of south-central Sydney, New South Wales is still not yet over their defeat of four of their five recent matches.
Can Inglis make critics eat their words?
On Monday they will have to strut their stuff without the help of Glenn Stewart who is injured. However they can depend on John Sutton and perhaps Adam Reynolds to bail them out. The biggest surprise though may come from Greg Inglis who was criticized for his Anzac Test performance, so we will have to wait and see what he’s got up his sleeves. Next on the list is the New Zealand Warriors which is based in Auckland, New Zealand.
They compete in the National Rugby League premiership and are the League’s only team from outside Australia. They have managed to win only one of five matches. Now we wondered why that was. It seems that all the talk about Shaun Johnson enforcing the Warriors’ defense is just that – talk. Meanwhile Manly is rising but with Steve Matai suspended once again; getting a winning team together is proving to be a tad difficult.
