Wests Tigers to continue, and work on their good form from last week. 22-16 WT.
The same could be said about the form of the top 17 players for the Raiders last week who lead the Rooster. It wasn't until the reserve grade team came on that the Roosters were able to get back into the game.

I'm feeling the combined scoreline will be around 35 points.
Ironically, 35 is the exact number of years since Parramatta won a grand final.
A possible game score of 19-16 isn't out of the picture . . . but importantly, yes, 35 years is a LOOOONG fggn time to be without a title.
There will be a handful of tries scored, which also ironically is the exact same amount of wooden spoons Parra has won.
I guess a team is only as good as it's last performance, so I'm putting some $$ on the Panthers, Brisbane and the WT.

The irony is you misused the word irony.

Interesting selections - Sebastian Kris in the centres?
Feel sorry for Starling. Not sure who i would prefer on the bench out of him and Havili. Starling is a better dummy half but Havili can make metres and play as another middle forward.

I have the Raiders top 2 this year so this will be a huge test. If our pack can match theirs I do think our 2-5 has more points then theirs, however the spines look worlds apart. If we had Doueihi Id give us a chance but missing a key spine member this will be a hard fought loss 26-18 or something like that.

Either way looking forward to seeing how the squad has grown this off season, particuarly some of the new guys in Roberts, Laurie and Stefano. Luciano was unstoppable in the trial, tipping a real big year for him. Sebastan Kris marking Jet could be a plus for us. It seems theres a good vibe and confidence around the club, something I haven't felt since the 2018 pre season. Just hope if we lose out first few games against real good teams we dont drop our heads.

raiders 2-5 is worse than dogshit but the rest of the team is pretty damn good.
Madge needs his head checked for CTE for selecting Mbye. I'd be giving him $500k just to piss off out of the club
