Perhaps a bye will give them the spark they need, perhaps it will be facing a Newcastle side that is coming off a 6-2 drubbing in Perth.
Historically the Hunter region has been quite profitable for the Roar but there’s not a lot of cause for optimism so far with the side desperate for goals.
They might find a way to score a few here but I can’t bring myself to back them outright, even as underdogs considering the Jets might see this as a get right game themselves.
