The short-lived two-game domination of this year’s NRL competition came to an end for the good people of Newcastle last night, as they kind of expected it would.
New Roosters recruit Cooper Cronk either set up, or scored all of his side’s tries, proving that his team aren’t really missing Mitchell Pearce, who was on the losing side of Easts 38-8 assault against the steel city.
“Ah fuck. I knew it was too good to be true” says one coal miner, Hunter Marina (55).
“I blame your stupid newspaper for jinxing us last week. We got overexcited. We should have touched wood. Losing by thirty hurts everyone”
With five ex Roosters players now playing for Newy, the Bondi boys made a point of bringing their poor Northern cousins back to earth without even a kiss.
“It’s not a good look” says Knights coach, Nathan Brown.
“Fuck. I think we are going to have to try out a bad boys approach. Maybe I’ll tell the boys there’s no more curfews on team trips”
Local Newcastle house painter, Con (33) says he will be calling for the town to be shut down and decorporated if they win another spoon.
“Not with the amount of money we’ve spent on these players. I’m not going to cop another spoon” he said.
