    Ivan said he'll be considering resting players and I imagine there'll be plenty ready for week 1 against either Roosters or Eels. Again Ivan said that's their focus now.

    Nothing yet on the NRL site involving Kiks' love tap in last night's game, although I heard, on either Nine or Fox, that that kind of charge would attract a monetary fine.

    If we’re thinking about resting kiks would should fight the charge (even though it’s only a fine) & lose. Giving him the week off & a clean charge sheet - if that’s how to works?

    LOL yea, I noticed it after I posted about a minute later. :) But you're right, Kiks will get a rest as well as a couple of others...maybe Cleary and give Burton a run.

    I would rest Kikau Edwards and JFH and possibly May. Bring Burton onto bench and rest Cleary and Luai for part of the game.

    Raiders can take 4th if the Eels cannot get past Wests next week. I think they'll get a tough match.

    Roosters rested a bunch for tonight against Sharks so could be willing to drop one to avoid Storm week 1.

    You'd think they'd leave that until next week for a number of reasons. Not the least of which being they could miss the top 4.

    They would be foolish to do that. I think Melbourne be an easier game for them.

    I think we should rest a big bunch this week, let some of the reserves get in on the glory.

    tetevano Kenny Leota
    Capewell Burns
    Hethrington
    Burton
    May
    Aekins
    Mcgrady
    Whare
    to’o (MWZ or Staines if fit )
    Laurie

    bench : Spencer, Hollis, Smith, hopgood

    That team looks ok.
    I know it’s not going to happen but it would be fun to watch.

    Not sure we’ll rest too many. Just keep doing what we’re doing. If we win week 1all players get a week off anyway.

    I'd give everyone in the squad a run. Guys like Hollis etc have been in a restrictive bubble all year and deserve a run

    I don’t think it is worth the risk. Rest players this week, win week 1 and potentially go into A GF qualifier with the main players in our squad having only 1=game in four weeks almost. I would be playing our best 17 all the way.

    The flip side is risk injury or suspension for the finals to key players
