Did lawernce get injuried at the back of that game and Cleary is foxing with selections as usual with either MCK or McQ to be his replacment or is he 100% and there was no injury at the end of the game?
He’s fine just cramped up towards the end according to his sister
Yep looked like cramp the way he was stretching after he came off

Can someone refresh my memory if Raiders have beaten us when Benji played i seemed to read this was a hoodoo for them and if he is out then Raiders should be favourites

Good to hear Rowdy is alright. Good to see he looks like he’s going to get through a full season. Only missed one game and the one he missed was precautionary.

Couple of things about this weekend:
1. What’s the odds we’ll lose someone to the sin bin for a hit on a kicker? For sure I reckon!
2. It’s time Campbelltown. 9 or 10 thousand won’t cut it! We need a packed house this weekend. No excuses - 3 games, Magpies playing, Sunday arvo.
I think Leichhardt kills Campbelltown- prove me wrong!
“Peanuts! Get ya peanuts - in the shell or sugar coated!” Leichhardt memories.

I saw something recently (can't remember where) saying he has only lost once in his entire career to the Raiders, including his stints at the Dragons and the Broncos.

Finally the penny has dropped with Ivan. No Tui, no MCK and ET at lock. McIlwrick should have been in 4 weeks ago. IMO this is our best squad to date.
Don't know how you can say that, penny dropping; he tested out a line up for 3 weeks and all these fans asking about accountability, as if 3 weeks is anything.

Pretty sure Ivan has a good handle on his roster, their fitness and combinations.

Real question is if this team keeps losing more than winning, what reshuffles then?

A relief to see half hearted Lolihea no where to be seen.

I reckon he has played his last game in the NRL for a long time.

I hate it how some fans ignore context and purely look at stats when criticising players.
We typically have backs doing 3 of the 5 hitups each set - of course this means the forwards take fewer hitups. Players like Fonua and Masters do more than their share of grunt work. Also players like Packer and matulino often do a little short pass close to the line to a team mate pushing up. So another run which doesn't count as a hitup.
Also if we don't have possession during a certain period of the game it's logical that our players will have higher tackle stats than metres made. Packer and Matulino are doing fine... Room for improvement sure but they're contributing a lot.

I'm not sure where ET fits into our team though. He's not a good hooker. Eiso can play the same minutes, make as many tackles and make far more metres and should be our lock. ET can't break the line or make metres in attack so shouldn't really be in the back row either. Maybe competing with Rochow for the RSW spot but that's not ideal.

Really hope Gamble comes onto the bench, thing is grub isn't fit enough to play 80 mins at 5/8 and a spell at hooker, and Liddle isn't fit enough yet either.

I think at the moment ET fits the perfect role of forward rotation in the pack. Can squeeze (hopefully no more than) 20mins out of him at hooker, short break then lock/secend row rotation. Last week our middle defence was weak without him.

The Supercoach Generation mate. It's skewed ratings of players dramatically.

ET should be right edge or nothing

I'd have Gamble doing the role Benji was slated for, 20-30 mins off the bench replacing the hooker with Grub moving into the 9
