    The problem with the Raiders is there backs take the first 3 hit ups of every bloody set meaning they can never go wide early. They need to play more direct both sides of the ruck early in the set and not have so many dummy half runs. They are better leaving Rapana and Cotric on the wings and going wide after a quick play the ball on tackle 2 or 3 instead of just plodding down the field. Their forwards have a lot to answer for. They should be the most intimidating pack in the comp yet they are ranked 14th for meters gained.

    Also great effort from MCinnes in defence tonight. If Jake friend made that many tackles you would hear about it all night. Dont think it was mentioned once tonight. All that defence is taking away from his attack though. One run all night and he dropped the ball with that run. They have forwards who can play big minutes. Better off going with a utility on the bench and giving mcinnes a 10 min spell to bring back his attacking game otherwise they wont be playing finals and the Panthers will run them down.

    The Mighty Mick Matheson character that Matty Johns does on the Professor's show is absolute mud. Not funny at all.

    Yeah, Dragons stopped looking good and winning games since McInnes stopped running. Hasn't run out of dummy half in weeks

    408 with crichton buhrer lolo gallen lane nubrown sione hayne (fifita, issako)

    Looks like a decent score in spite of captain SJ. Fifita comes in for JBrom if he plays. Issako in for either Scott or Sione depending on if Sione plays this week

    Does anyone have BE's for SJ, TTurbo and Teddy please?

    SJ going down throws all plans out the window.

    The little midget already has two shows a week, I don't know why he has to get his fucking face in on another one too.

    Great start to the round with Cleary, Podene, JDB, McInnes in the mix...

    contemplated putting the VC on Cleary this morning... feeling some regret tonight

    I lost 5 points in updates from my already poor scorers in that game. My Dragons did okay but I'm sure the carnage will continue. Had 18 players to start the week but have lost Yates already, and expect that Capewell will be omitted as well. And probably Tedesco, SMat and Crichton knowing my luck.
    The rankings slide has begun already.

    RTS and Edwards were shit. With SJ and Friend injured and only 4 trades left, looks like RTS stays the rest of the year...

    And this is what happens when the tries don't come for RTS. I mean Edwards wasn't any better but we know he's still capable of big games with no tries or assists

    With those horseshit Cotric and Croker scores, might as well just run Fui in the centres full time.

    I think that win could spark something in the Raiders now. Might get a bit of confidence back, hopefully.

    Dragons have been woeful lately though. Could spark a run of form anyway though. I think they'll play better once they're out of finals contention actually.
    No pressure means they'll just go out to ruin everyone else's fun
