Here are some early details exclusively for readers of TheGH.com.au.

The Greenhouse - and thanks to long time member of The GH, KW - will be arranging finals fan meet ups for 2019.

In Week 1 of the finals, if the Raiders end up playing the Roosters at the Sydney Cricket Ground, we hope to be at The Captain Cook Hotel. If we’re playing the Storm in Melbourne, we hope again to be at the Richmond Club Hotel. If we’re somewhere else... we will select an appropriate venue.

We’ve had some great fan meet ups... the Richmond Club in Melbourne, the Lord Alfred in Brisbane, The Star on the Gold Coast... and The Woolpack Hotel at Parramatta this year. We will hopefully have a few more this finals series!

If the first final is not at the SCG or Melb, it will be in Canberra.

For that to happen, either we have had things go very well and the Roosters have slipped or we have gone badly and slipped to 5th or 6th.

I expect we will be travelling in week 1.

Think we will be 3rd.

Can’t see Manly jumping us they still play us, Storm and Parra.
Souths look gone.
Parra still play Manly and our points difference is far better.
I think it’s the SCG first up.

As someone who grew up in Melbourne and have spent half my life going to sporting events around the Yarra Park precinct, (and still do regularly) to see the sea of green in that area that night was something I will never forget.

I haven’t made a Raiders home game this year and only 2 away games (Tigers and Bulldogs) as the draw hasn’t been kind with my schedule of sport on weekends and being an out of towner.

I can probably make the Warriors game in rnd 25 but I think I’ll keep my powder dry and hope for a home final and travel down for that.

Whatever happens there’ll be a home final. Just a question of which week. Hopefully Preliminary final! Image

I'll travel up if we're playing the Roosters; I'll have to skip if we're playing Melbourne, saving my pennies.

I’d agree that chooks at the scg is the most likely outcome for week 1 of the finals. To win that and set up a home prelim would be absolutely incredible.

Here’s an update on our Finals Week 1 fan meet up.

We are still waiting to see where and when the Raiders will be playing in Week 1, but it looks like it’ll be at the SCG in Sydney against the Roosters... or perhaps in Melbourne against the Storm.

If we’re at the SCG, we will meet up at P.J. Gallagher’s Irish Pub at the entry to the Fox Studios complex.

Image

Image

Image

If we are in Melbourne we will aim for the Richmond Club Hotel.

We will let everyone know as soon as the games are allocated!

The indications from the NRL are that the Storm will play on Saturday night at 7:30pm... so that's where we'll be if the Raiders finish in fourth.

It also appears the Roosters will play the 5:30pm match on Saturday or on Friday night... so that's where we'll be if the Raiders finish in third.

Let's hope a fifth placed finish is out of the question!

Surely with all the great historic pubs around Surry Hills and Paddington, you would go somewhere better than a TV set made up Irish pub at Fox Studios.

The Captain Cook isn't interested... and this venue is very close, has great capacity, and are being very helpful. KW has spent his own time in a busy schedule organising... so if you'd really like to complain, send them to him and see how far you get!

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

The Captain Cook is too small for us, and haven't replied to my emails or returned my calls. Compare that to the Richmond Club Hotel who have been very accommodating and cant wait to have us back (if it eventuates). Apparently the staff still talk about that pre-game event.

The Irish Pub is a bit tacky, but its huge and will have a fantastic atmosphere when chock full of Raiders fans. It is very easy to find, and less than 500 metres from the grass car park and the ground, and also has a multi story car park next door.

I spoke with the venue manager and they can open up the 180pax second floor if required.

It will be epic. Trust me.
