Similar to my views. Scott will be there. James will be there. We've got a lot of depth and reserve grade is going to be great to watch.

Strong team, I love Rapa but I just hope he gets through the year and doesnt regress too much, hopefully my concerns are ill founded.

Curtis Scott and Ryan James, if these two start teh first 6-8 games off strong we will be in a great spot to win the damn thing this year.
Its not like Scott is a rookie, and hes had big wraps on him for quite a while, ok bar the last 2 years, this is the year he HAS to perform....over to you Curtis.

Ryan James if he stays injury free im confident will kick ass for us.

$9.50 at Sportsbet to win the thing...get on board !

Agreed.

Scott and James will be there.

I kind of expect Lui to miss out

I'm finding it very hard to decide on who's missing out.

Leadership voids and $1m mysteries: Question every club must answer before kick-off
Mark St John

RAIDERS

How do the Raiders replace John Bateman? The 2019 Dally M second-rower of the year’s return to Wigan has created a massive hole in Canberra’s forward pack. Elliot Whitehead has one of the second row spots locked up for 2021, but who will partner him and how the forward rotation will work is less clear.

23-year-old Corey Horsburgh and 22-year-old Hudson Young loom as the most likely candidates to fill the void left by Bateman, but who starts and who comes off the bench remains to be seen.

This is the kind of in depth raiders analysis I'm after.

Sorry simo, after last year, when Corey was tried out in the second row, and it didn't work out well, and Corey said he didn't want to play there... I thought I'd leave him out of the second row contenders.

sorry GE, i was taking a shot at the poor fox sports "journalism" that included a middle forward coming back from a lisfranc injury as an edge option and not a kiwi international back rower as an option
