It's regarded as one of the toughest away trips in the NRL and so when the time comes to walk into the Storm that is Melbourne at AAMI Park, you want an army behind you.
With an ambush on the cards, as an injury-depleted Storm prepared to host our boys, the army arrived.
What army? The Roosters faithful.
"Wherever we go, we know we're going to have a loud and supportive crowd somewhere in the stands," said James Maloney.
"There's always some familiar faces within the group but our Interstate Members have been brilliant in the time I've had here at the Roosters over the last two seasons - we seem to have Members everywhere!"
As with all away trips our Members mixed and mingled with the group the day before the game at the team hotel, just to let them know their army was behind them.
Something they certainly feel out on the field.
"Every away game is a tough trip for plenty of reasons, but having the majority of the crowd against you certainly plays it part," said Maloney.
"Having our Members and Fans there in our colours, even if it's one section of a stand or ten, just lifts you that little bit - they're with you and you love hearing them."
