FRIDAY 16th April 2004
HAPPY Easter everyone. A quick preview for round five, starting with tonight?s game between the Roosters and Broncos at Aussie Stadium. The Roosters have six top line players out through injury and suspension and I believe the Broncos will take full advantage in what should be a bruising encounter. Brisbane are slowly finding their feet and should have enough ammunition to inflict a second straight defeat on the Roosters and give Ricky Stuart some more sleepless nights. Broncos by 10.
CHAMPION Broncos fullback Darren Lockyer has increased his lead and is on nine points in Leagueunlimited.com's player of the year awards for 2004.
FRIDAY 9th April 2004
DARREN Lockyer has shot to the front on eight points in Leagueunlimited.com's player of the year awards following another outstanding display last weekend. But he may have company with Raiders forward Ruben Wiki bolting up the leader table and sitting on seven points.
WILL round four answer more questions than it asks? I'm not so sure and after three rounds of the NRL, only a couple of things are certain, the Roosters and Penrith are the real deal once again, Manly still can't tackle and the Cowboys have taken out a mortgage on the wooden spoon after two narrow losses at home.
FRIDAY 2nd April 2004
ANOTHER sensational round of NRL footy with the upset of the round going to the Eels who defeated the Knights 38-34; a match which saw no less than 12 tries scored.
IF you can pick a perfect round this week, you are in the wrong business my friend. You should be working for NASA and trying to figure out if there actually was life on mars.
