    I hope it’s raining for this match because the raiders are going in dry.

    They will be missing Papalii, the issue is I almost don’t want us to win because say we beat the final three teams it creates too many what ifs. We need to be savagely put out of our misery.

    I wanted us to win whilst in contention of course but now that we are not, if we went on a late streak it will be like rubbing salt into the wound.

    The players are just not good enough. If they were, we would have won tonight.

    So, a big loss against the Raiders coming up, particularly after their loss against the Roosters is my prediction.

    When was the last time Dufty scored? Where has his attack gone?

    Time now to try Sailor me thinks and a few others even though they haven't played for a while.

    Wighton had a shocker yesterday so I’d expect him to hit back next week & carve us up.

    All I know is that if Vaughan doesn't play out of his skin he will be set for some almighty criticism.

    The guy's ill discipline has seen him missing for 4 weeks at the most vital time of year. Went a long way to costing us any chance of a finals appearance though that ship had probably sailed when we entered the season with Mary as coach.

    For those "worried" we might win, it's okay, you have nothing to worry about.

    Jeff I agree.....care factor Zero!
    The only resemblance of interest I have left in the season, is the Appointment of a Real Coach for 2021. If the club f.ck this up, then I’ll follow another sport for enjoyment.

    I'm looking forward to seeing if Young can actually deliver on all the tough talk.

    Compete, discipline & consistency. He mentioned a few didn't do their job again, & it just isn't good enough. If so there has to be a number of players dropped. Norman Aitken, Dufty, Lawrie gone, Hunt borderline.

    They’ll probably appoint Youngy the moment we get our next win.

    So I’m expecting the announcement around May 2021.

    Raiders by how ever many they want to win by.

    Stick a fork in us.

    In fact we're past done. We're charcoal.

    Throw us out.
