That’s a wrap on the 2018 season. Hell of a year to be a blues and a rooster and I can finally put three failed preliminary finals (particularly Suncorp 2015) behind and get on with life. State of origin victory coached by a former Roosters captain and captained by the current Roosters captain. Defeat the arch nemesis the rabbits with a defensive clinic to reach the big dance. Trent Robinson in a league of his own with 2 premierships and 4 minor premierships in his first 6 years, not achieved by any coach of the modern NRL era. Cooper Cronk overcomes a broken scapula and Blake Ferguson plays the second half with a broken leg (tibia) to help the team to it’s 14th premiership. Pictured here is a bloke who approached me in a Lebanese bakery in parramatta, named Frank Drake and was known as the Elvis Presley of league. The first fullback to score a try against Great Britain and the first fullback to score four tries in a match. He captained the Roosters for a few years in the mid 60s and was very proud to tell me he smashed his goal of scoring more tries in his first season than Clive Churchill did in his whole career. #ESDRLFC #est1908 #14
