So far the MRC have not cited anyone this week, fingers crossed it stays that way. I would swap Sezer for Williams, just so he has had some time with Jack if needed in the finals. Apart from that keep the team as is. After Thursday night we will know how important this game is

I absolutely wouldn’t make that change one game out from the finals

BOTH Jack and Aiden need to seriously work on their fifth play options, and Hodgo with how he links with them on last

We've been shafted with a short turnaround.

Damn you NRL, conspiring to bring down.

Keep winning keep momentum, we want momentum going in against the chooks.

Everyone fears the chooks more then melbourne but if we going to win the thing we r going to have to beat them, may as well get them first up with me cheering them from the sidelines with 5-10 k other Sydney raiders fans then the 4 dogs who support them down in Melbourne.

Also you wanna stay match fit and keep ridin the momentum we have built this season.

Not farewelling anybody. No retirements announced and nobody is signed elsewhere (officially).

Yep - if anyone has a genuine injury that would benefit from a weeks rest then look at the options but otherwise keep the momentum going. The result doesn’t matter but there is a lot that does in terms of fixing a few defensive structures, sorting out last tackle plays and working a few players into form. If Ricky has seen what we needed to by all means give the bench a good run and rest a few needing a break.

4. Cotric
5. Rapana
6. Wighton
7. Sezer

14. S.Williams
15. Havilii

17. Young

Rest: Papa, SIA, Croker, Bateman and CNK

Hodgson and Wighton to only play 50mins then bring Williams and Havilii on to finish the game. Tapine to play 80 minutes and Sutton to play long minutes as well, he needs it.

Who to rest and who not to comes down to simply a medical decision
If there is players carrying injuries that will improve with a week off, you obviously rest them... everyone else plays
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers and Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

Think that puts us at too much of a risk to lose. Winning momentum would be really great to have at this time of year.

Personally I'd rest CNK, Papa, Bateman, and Raps. 4 guys that have either played a lot of football or taken a battering this season. Croker and Sia shouldn't need rests, and aren't integral to the side either.

That said, four players is still a lot to rest. Doubt Ricky will go to those lengths.

I feel we really need to win the first final and we should rest up as many players as we can to be primed as if we lose I’m worried about playing Manly (if the draw falls that way) next up

Finally, after 4 weeks, a dud team that we can bully and beat up.... If we dont win this one by 20+ we are kidding ourselves.
The million dollar question is who do we want to play week 1... roosters or storm. Roosters are simply unbeatable anyway, and we already had our once in a decade good game against the cap cheaters.

Did anyone else watch the Storm dismantle Manly? You know Manly beat them earlier this yr, right?!? Storm don't lose to teams twice, so the fact that the ledger is even on the season on makes it tougher for us.

We nearly pants the chooks twice this yr, we are due. If we wanna win the comp, we are going to have to beat them. So why not in wk 1?

Also, they face the Bunnies next wk. Surely both teams aren't going to want to give an inch to the other headed into finals. The alterative is both field reserve grade sides.

As for the team Rickys presser suggested only injured players will be rested. We won't be making wholesale changes.

dont think the players would want to be rested, i would just limit some players minutes

I know i would prefer just to work right up to say Christmas then take an odd day off work , getting back into the swing of things is pretty hard

I wouldn't minds seeing a few rested. CNK has been busting a nut. Pre finals refresh wouldn't hurt him. Paps and Wighton played through Origin so they a break might help them. That would be about it for me.

Hodgson, Bateman and Whitehead are too valuable to risk in a game against the warriors. Especially if 3rd is a lock.

I wouldn't be resting anyone unless they had an injury.

The Warriors can be a dangerous team and they'll be pumped to end the year not on a total disgrace. Ricky will also need to keep the boys' heads in the game because we're expected to win this one too easily, it would be too easy to get complacent.

Let's ruthlessly execute them by forty points and roll into the finals on a high.

Also, I probably can't go. Figure skating judging commitments. ARGH.

I'll trust Ricky to make the right call re resting players, he's got his finger on the pulse more than us. Rapana wasn't bad today but still looks a bit short on pace, so he might be a good candidate for a rest along with some of the forwards.
