The Sydney Roosters have been known for their mind games in the NRL, but their latest attempt to gain an edge over their opponents has been exposed by Melbourne Storm fullback Ryan Slater.
Slater, who was playing against the Roosters in the NRL Grand Final, revealed that the Roosters had been using a tactic of trying to unsettle their opponents by talking to them during the game.
The tactic, which is known as ‘mind games’, is a common tactic used by teams in the NRL to gain an advantage over their opponents. It involves trying to get into the heads of the opposition players and make them doubt their own abilities.
Slater revealed that the Roosters had been using this tactic during the Grand Final, and that it had been effective in disrupting the Storm’s game plan.
The tactic has been widely criticised by fans and pundits alike, with many believing that it is a form of cheating. However, the Roosters have defended their actions, claiming that they were simply trying to gain an edge over their opponents.
Regardless of whether the tactic is considered cheating or not, it is clear that the Roosters have been using mind games to gain an advantage over their opponents. It remains to be seen whether this tactic will be successful in the future, but for now, Slater has unmasked the Roosters’ mind games live.
