Great to see Papa will be a one club player and even better that the Club is the Raiders. He is right up there with the best forwards I have watched for the Raiders. Great comment about Sia. The culture senior players bring to a club matters. Well done to Sticky and DFJ too.

Re: Ideal position on the ladder

Top 4 spot always preferable as a second chance available should the first of the finals not go to plan. But 5th is not the end of the World. Home match likely against the Sharks and then the loser of probably Eels v Panthers. Once we are that deep into the finals series anything can happen.

A lot of press from Sticky about Sia getting some minutes leading into the finals. Yet only named him on the extended bench. I smell smoke.
I wonder if he is waiting on the outcome of the Bronco's v Eels match on Friday before finalising the side for this Sunday.

Apparently Sia may get some minutes for next week. Not sure who will miss out. Perhaps EW gets a spell leading into the finals with CHN going to the left edge.
