Sorry for being offline for a couple of days…but i’m sure you didn’t miss the news that Sonny Bill Williams most likely will not play in the foundation cup this week, which certainly takes away the luster of the game somewhat; a trial which Fox was planning on broadcasting for the first time ever.
It does give us Roosters a chance to see how Luke O’Donnell is faring and what he has left in the tank. If been the harshest critic of his signing but this is the first chance to see if the critique is misguided and perhaps a bit premature.
It gives Roosters fans a chance to get a geez at former captain Braith Anasta in Tigers colours, and gives us a first glimpse of how his replacement will combine with Mitchell Pearce.
For 15 bucks it’s still well worth the price of admission, and i’m still heading there. I’m going to give a review of the game on Sunday so watch this space.
