Yeah I think he knows that Ese'ese is playing, he was just having a dig at me for not updating the teams haha :P

On topic: Broncos Twitter said as far as they know James Roberts is playing, despite the rumours of his missus going into labour this afternoon, late mail will be at about 6:50pm

Yeah, I think Roberts rumour came from Wacko's Whispers on Twitter and I don't think he has a great strike rate.

The "big name player in doubt" could be Adam Reynolds, who Fox Sports are reporting has a slight hamstring injury but should play.

Yeah I think you're right about that.

The 3 players I've seen named from Souths being in doubt are Reynolds, T.Burgess & Turner.

We'll need a big game from our forwards tonight. I have a feeling the Burgess brothers are going to lead from the front

im no were near as confident as alot of you guys here. i have a bad feeling about this game. i think its gonna go down to the wire. i expect inglis and burges brothers to have there best games of year tonight. rabbitohs on paper have to many classy players to be playing as bad as they have been

because if u cant get up agasint the comp favourites after being thrashed the week before while also playing at the best rugby league field in the country then nothing is going to get souths out of the rut they are in

Souths will be up no doubt, it's just not going to matter. I suspect that Souths will be in the game at halftime but the second will be ours after a lot of hard graft. I'm not expecting a flashy display.

I'm very excited to see Herman in action. As good as we've been this year and last year, We still lack that size and aggression off the bench. Ese'ese has the size, the physical presence and the x-factor to really cement a spot on the bench for the remainder of the year. I'm not sure who would drop out if that was the case, but its a good place to be.

He has the ability to scatter blokes, hit a hole at speed, and has a bit of ball playing ability close to the line as well. All round a very promising prospect for the Broncos. Let's hope he has a solid start to his Broncos career.

People swear by wackos Mail on the SuperCoach forum. Obviously doesn't mean he's 100%

Edit - didn't see the pic of him before posting haha

Triple M also said "possible news that Roberts' wife has gone in to labour". No more than 10 minutes ago. Laugh.

In supercoach circles Wacko Jacko is probably the most trusted source for late mail. Can't really speak to his accuracy over other late mail sources (although certainly better than the NRL website).

Hard to say whether he was wrong or right on this occasion, as his tweet was pretty vague.

Edit: broncsgoat beat me to it
