    I have a soft for the raiders, love the Minnesota Vikings clap.

    If saints did not exist, they would be my team. If there is such a thing as a "2nd team". They are it for me

    Their ground is the biggest rip off. Worse than the SCG.

    Saints always play opponents into form. This thread makes a very valid point

    I'm tipping it is a cut and paste team from the Knights game because the playing group is training really well and it is a simple game.

    I'm tipping Mary to remain a thorn in our side with poor selections, poor game plan, poor bench rotation, poor press conference. Did I miss anything??

    he score at fulltime will be about 45 pts to 43, hey both play the same type of defence . They move off their line 5 yards than wait and backpedal as they try and tackle, and only come up where the ball is , frigging useless Defence.

    Mary has had a fair bit of success against the Raiders. There was that win in Round 3 of 2015 that kicked off a run of victories, and that last minute win in the dark last year.

    They're playing as poorly as us so God knows what'll happen.

    He is going ok from the last few though. Admittedly Simple Jack Wighton helped us out last year at a blacked out Kogarah.
    As for the last time you went, don't go, problem solved!

    I know the Raiders are going shit but Wighton, Cotric, Croker, Leilua, Rapana, Austin.....there's a back line that can score from anywhere. They will murder us in Canberra and be back in form for another Ricky Stuart miracle run for the finals.
    Cotric get's the ball in space anywhere and it's try time........unless Dufty's marking him. Perfect chance to send MacDonald a message in reggies and give Dufty a taste of FG. Move Nighty back to 2 and give Dufty a chance in 5 marking Cotric.
    Comon Mary you can do it.

    Yep and all we will hear in 8 weeks time is " Rickys Boys began their unbeaten run with their win over the deagons"

    NOT here's hoping.

    Maybe we should play them in the dark...
    Stuart is nearly as ordinary as our bloke - should be an engrossing battle of the also rans.

    The Raiders game will be the last straw. Win it or the team bus leaves without them.

    Ignoring everything that's gone before, going into this match we'll be firmly in the eight, coming off a bye with the rep season over. There will be no excuses for not lifting for the last eight games and going into the finals with some momentum. Of course we could just as easily go 1-7 and finish 13th.

    Had the idiots who run the club not jumped the gun on Mary's signing this would have been the perfect time to tell him that his future rested on this run into the finals.

    The reality is that we are virtually no chance of beating the Raiders. Bigger more mobile forwards faster more creative backs, it would be a miracle if we win this.
