    Bloody hard to pick a team for all the right reasons.

    Stone will probably come back in.

    Jacob probably out for a week if he needed scans.

    Fitzy had the best game of his life.

    Yates had a great game.

    Starling even broke 100 metres.

    Pauli played 80 minutes and looked great in reserve grade.

    Hodko did everything he could to impress in reserve grade.

    Randell showed that his workrate is a big positive.

    King did enough to be happy with his effort.

    Elliot might be back.

    1 Elliot
    2 Sio
    3 Gagai
    4 Pete
    5 Ross
    6 Lamb
    7 Feeney/Hodko
    8 Dan the man
    9 Levi
    10 Pauli
    11 Sione
    12 Stone
    13 Yates

    14 Randell
    15 Wardle
    16 King
    17 Starling

    18 Tupou
    19 Hodko/Feeney
    20 Fitzy
    21 Stockwell

    Elliot
    Sio
    Gagai
    Pete
    Ross
    Lamb
    Feeney (both need to improve last play options though, good when they got it right
    Dan
    Levi
    King
    Sione
    Fitzy
    Yates

    Stone
    Pauli
    Wardle
    Jsaifiti/starling

    We lost control of the ruck when Randall came on so try extend Levi's minutes
    Stone could relieve he used to be 5/8
    Elliot has much better goal line defence than gagai although gags is a little more willing to let the ball roll dead which would mean less goal line defence.....

    No one sticking with gags at the back? Was elliot injured or just a tactical change?

    Really? Here i was thinking we lifted and created more up the middle due to fresh legs and creative playfrom him.... did score 3 tries in the first 10mins he was on btw.

    Proud of the boys today.Feeney went alright I'd keep him in the side. Fitsy was pretty good this arvo and should play again nextweek

    Not much love for Stone.
    He was only out because he got knocked around playing for Australia last week, where he had a quality game by all reports.

    I though Randall played well also 88. Made raiders play wider which we couldn't handle. To me that's solid ruck defence........

    I think im Stones biggest fan but our backrow was pretty good today and we won so makes it hard to change it to much!
    U cant drop yates as he was brilliant imo, fitzy although busted hit hard in D all day and actually went looking for the ruck at times to tackle players.... 1 on 1 tks on boyd and paulo is a big task and he did it today on them both while injured.

    Was it Randell who turned the Raiders around with the kick in the second half?

    I'm actually asking the question lol.
    Wasn't too sure as I was steaming the game from under the table at Morhers Day Lunch.
    Also, what did Feeney do that was so bad in defense?

    Yes it was and he also jumped out of dummt half and ran at the line before passing a few times which made the Raiders sit on there heels and allowed us to get on the front foot and score 3 quick tries to hit the lead and pull away for the win.

    I think all good judges on here have been calling for Randell to be in the 17 for awhile!!

    Gags will stay fullback moving forward according to Browny in presser.

    He is always talking about his long term plans, does this mean ponga to 6 next year. If thats the case he could justify matching the big money offers other clubs are giving him

    Feeney showed some great signs today was involved in our first 3 tries but our last play options are really poor. Will be very interesting what side Brown picks .....
