Ricky’s Raiders taking on the Big Bad Chooks this shapes as the question mark many Raiders fans have on their minds, how will the Raiders respond and get any better without Josh Hodgson?  Siliva Havili? the replacement hooker for the Raiders does he step up? it will be interesting to see what happens for them against the Roosters, No doubt the Roosters boss will reiterate that his men have a job to do and that the grand final rematch is on the agenda, big test for the Raiders.
