Their 2 starters are undoubtedly good, however Papalii is the best front rower in this game. And it's not particularly close.
Better than what he was at 23.

Re: Raiders dealt huge blow as neck injury puts CNK out for up to two months

Yeah i mean we've still got Timoko and HSS, and i've still got really high hopes for Simo too . Valemi as well. All these guys have the ability, and if one or two of them could kick on and become staples of the team and strong contributors, it would be very helpful as we look at how to get better i...

Re: Raiders dealt huge blow as neck injury puts CNK out for up to two months

Be interesting to see where it ends up next year with Rapana retiring. Valemei should be in the mix. Kris if we retain him probably makes a permanent switch to the backrow over the next couple of seasons. Savage still at least a year away with the genuine pace. Perhaps Hopoate makes a move. Yep, I ...

We can pick holes in the bench all day. We can say we look old and slow (we do) or that we need more punch (we do) But issue number 1 is that its a bench that leaves us in big trouble if we sustain an injury anywhere that isn't a middle third player. An injury to a backrower or outside back puts Ha...

Re: Raiders dealt huge blow as neck injury puts CNK out for up to two months

Aekins will get the gig. He was brought in as backup to CNK and this is where he's needed. A solid replacement.

CNK got injured eay in the game and this must have been the result. Kikau club in the back of the head wouldn't have helped.
