    Your constant snubbing of Jake Friend for Wille M points is egregious. He is the worst starting hooker in the NRL, at least in terms of attack and a constant liability for the Roosters.

    • Robbo says:

      Cmon, Who else at the Roosters will cop 50 tackles a game? Someone has to have a work rate at this excuse for a Rugby League club

      • Pauly says:

        Ran for 6 whole metres too. Yes, 6.

      • Al D says:

        Friend is a tackling machine- that’s it. He offers no penetration from dummy half, his passes are slow and often forward leading to the defense being on top of the runners by the time they receive the ball and his decision making is abysmal. Any time he opts to kick a collective groan goes up from the fans. I’m pretty sure you can replace those 50 tackles but you can’t get back the numerous attacking opportunities he squanders.
