    With their strongest line up where would you have them finishing?

    1. Jack Wighton
    2. Nick Cotric
    3. Jarrod Croker
    4. Joseph Leilua
    5. Jordan Rapana
    6. Aidan Sezer
    7. Sam Williams
    8. Iosia Soliola
    9. Josh Hodgson
    10. Ryan Sutton
    11. Joseph Tapine
    12. Elliott Whitehead
    13. Josh Papalii

    Siliva Havili
    Dunamis Lui
    Luke Bateman
    John Bateman

    I find it strange the Raiders have let go of both Boyd and Paulo, who were quality front rowers, and replaced them with the untested Sutton.

    The squad is lacking front rowers with Soliola a makeshift front rower whilst Liu and L.Bateman are more suited to lock.

    Guler looks promising and should've a regular but apart from this who else do the Raiders have up front?

    No obvious improvement, the Pommy hooker is fit, that is a plus.

    9-12 for me.

    Hodgson from the start of the year will obviously be a huge boost. Don’t think they look as good as other teams who would be expected to be in the mix for lower top 8 spots. I have them bottom 4 but will no doubt pick up a few big scalps along the way just to really piss their fans off.

    We'll finish 4 or 5 & hopefully be a real threat as our new spine (3 of 4 were new positions) & combos will have settled more by than.

    Our best team now looks like

    1. CNK
    2. Oldfield (Simonsen may yet get over him, but he's only got a few more weeks to show something special)
    3. Jarrod Croker
    4. Nic Cotric
    5. Jordan Rapana
    6. Jack Wighton
    7. Sam Williams
    8. Josh Papalii
    9. Josh Hodgson
    10. Dunamis Lui
    11. Elliot Whitehead
    12. John Bateman
    13. Ryan Sutton

    Siliva Havili
    Jo Tapine
    Sia Soliola
    Corey Horsburg

    Eggs on my face so far. Hope they don't do a St George and shit the bed in the last 10 weeks though.

    You wear it well. Kudos.

    Historically Jack will have another wonky game or 2 as part of his learning curve but he ended up an eye test & statistical very good FB that year before he got suspended & I think he's going to be even better at 5/8.

    He was a but of a confidence player (everyone is) but Ricky finally moved into the 21st century & got a sports psych in as a consultant this year & it has seen some results- Jack especially given his tribulations.

    Think we’re pretty boned with Hodgson out for a couple of months on top of all the other injuries plus Origin selections (should be an interesting line up this week)

    I’m not a fan of the Wild Card round but could work to our benefit

    Should be a great game this Thursday.

    I'm hoping for a Sharks vs. Raiders GF...

    Anything is better than Roosters v. Storm!
