Unless Rapana's sternum keeps him out (unlikely) it'll be the same team. If he's out Timoko to come in.

Honestly, we could lose by 150 next week and I’d be ok. We beat the Roosters and ended the three-peat

I'm getting mixed messages about tickets, is it only members on sale now? Any info about how this all works appreciated!

You might need to be quick, but I just got mine via nrl.com. Click on the tickets link, it will take you to Ticketek, select the NRL Finals option and away you go. Have your credit card handy.

Whats the latest on Munster? If he doesn't play surely we go in as favourites. Still rate Wighton over him though.

I'm more confident about this than the Roosters game. Which is worrying. But I'll take it. No one other than us will give the Raiders a chance.

Penrith '91 avenged would be the next one. **** Penrith, ruining our three-peat!

Oh and same team that played today, just with better rotation of our hookers (start Havaili for sure, just bring him back on later!)

Are we limited to only getting revenge once?

REVENGE is a dish best served twice. Or seven times.

I love it when Fat Toad Gould and Drug Johns didn't tip us and Drug Johns saying Roosters were certainties. Drugs and his delusions affecting him.

Also biased commentary on Fox and Nine. Sucked in Fittler.

Up the Raiders!!!

He tipped the Roosters reluctantly from what I heard. He said we had a better chance at winning the comp though as we're on the way up and the Roosters are just hanging on.

More in the tank overall and moving forward was the point he was getting at, but a lesser team on merits.

The Roosters threw 20 frikken offloads in that game, which we struggled to contain. One was followed by an obvious forward pass for their last try. Ironically their second try came from a pass that went to ground, which still created that broken field play.

Anyway, my point is that I don't expect Melbourne to play high risk footy and attempt 20 offloads, despite that being our biggest problem in defence. I think we match up much better against their attack.

Just run at Munster all night if he plays.

If we have more in the tank overall and are moving forward at a better rate, I would argue we are the better team on merits. And we were.

Rapana needs to get rid of the niggle attitude, yes it gets his opposite off their game, but so does he

what a feeling right now, melbourne will be a massive test, assuming we get past them, out of the 3 teams (Souths, Parra, Panthers) I would rather not play Souths, I just think panthers havnt had a real test, their closest test was against Roosters last week which they almost lost, Parra on the other hand are being tested but arnt handling it lately, souths are momentum kings.
