Due to wallaby test Suncorp only available Sunday according to channel 7.
Unless the Wallabies are playing Friday night i don't see how they would come into consideration at all. Stadiums host multiple events on the same weekend all the time without a care in the world.

Thanks TT, i did note that some members are very steadfast in their views, but that to me just shows a passion and love for the team. The only thing I'm uncomfortable with is when they make personal comments about the club, players and other forum members.

As a supporter i believe you have the right to criticise a player for their performance, a coach for his decisions, and even comment about a post, but not make it personal.

After all we are all the same side :sign:

Cowboys beat Titans. Very likely

Sharks upset Storm at home. 50/50. Storm don't lose two in a row

Stuart rests half his squad allowing the good guys, WT to play semi finals.

We will probably meet the Broncos in the semis and get our bums kicked.

At least a spring board to season 2017 when Farah hopefully gone, a full time hooker and JJ Feilse in the top squad. Our forwards are looking good for 2017.

If ET is not resigned then Edwards to train as lock.

If we do jag a semi spot we can play whoever we want in whatever grade we want.
If all team make the semi's 2nd tier salary cap doesn't apply.
So we could play Liddle and JJ if JT wanted to.
only problem is who we drop and if it would hurt the team
I don't think you can change the team at this stage of the season, I was just stating a fact.

I can't see Ricky resting anyone if the Sharks lose. He'd essentially be deciding on his 17 at 9:30 the night before the game. If he does rest players he will be doing it despite the score in the Sharks game, not because of it.

Ricky is still playing games, just read an article that claims he won't be resting players for the game as they have just been given 3 days off???

As many have said, I think the Tigers should completely block out any notion of Canberra players being rested and approach the game as if they are playing the form team of the comp. This the attitude they used to knock over the Cowboys when there were questions about Thurston's inclusion and all us supporters need to join in with the same belief. Basically we need to play the game of our lives, it's that simple.

what crap, the raiders home stadium for finals?

play big games in big stadiums - seems reasonably logical to me. sucks for raiders fans but it also sucks for the 15-20k that dont get to watch a prelim final live cuz its held in a tiny 25k venue
