I’d like him to find his feet and succeed, would certainly be a good story if he was “the one”.

Ricky sure did have a great passing and kicking game. I still can’t believe how accurate and far some of his passes were.

Helped having Meninga, Daley and Chicka on the end of them too I guess.

It seemed to help Mitchell Moses’ confidence and focus knowing he had an Immortal giving him advice and guidance, but I could be wrong.

Agree about people who are good at something aren’t always best at imparting knowledge to others, guess I am being slightly optimistic that playmakers who are feeling a bit flat, out of sorts or needing a change couldn’t buy into the idea of slotting in behind the forward pack and working with CNK and Wighton and co to work a bit of magic.

Maybe they should call the Tumut Blues or Gundagai Tigers and see who is on the books? 🙂

It will certainly make the jump a massive one for young playmakers to step onto the stage under the scrutiny and pressure.

I know lots of people are struggling to stay positive and upbeat during the lockdowns and pandemics, being a young NRL prospect in these times it would be hard to stay focused and disciplined to be ready when called up, that’s for certain. Hope all clubs are looking after them as best they can.

Would be mixed feelings to see Mitchell Pearce help the team who ruined his Dad’s fairy tale ending in 1989 to win another competition, but he could be a good fit.

It is a tough shift to come all the way from the UK. Maybe the Raiders should look towards Cootmundra, Junee, Grong Grong, Matong, The Rock, Yerong Creek and other cool sounding places for a future star? 🙂

It’s been funny, lots of Tigers fans were suggesting Luke would be good for the Raiders to take today.

Yeah, it is a unique skill set. Ideally, who do you think would be best fit?

Winning games can change perceptions quickly. They almost won the competition, and then something shifted – can be hard to unpack all the factors.

It’s part of why I wrote this too – I’m shocked that Luke or Ash haven’t tried to pitch for the gig…and if you don’t ask…

I’ve heard great things too about Schneider, and we all know heroes can come from anywhere. ????

Not necessarily – but if Ricky can’t be the mentor then the hero would have to try something different to get there.

The article is definitely hoping Ricky could click with someone, form a special bond and inspire them to greatness.

It would be a special person to come in, and doesn’t look like many are putting their hand up.

If it was your job to pick one of the current halves to come in – who would you pick?

You got it.

The seed for this piece was reading that Ricky and the Raiders were chasing players and I wondered why it wasn’t the other way around.

So obviously, to win the comp, in the current predicament, they need a hero. Someone special who is up for a challenge and who can extract the diamonds from the mine of Stuart. In the hero’s journey – it’s on them to figure it out, the mentor can’t do it all, so it would not all be on Ricky Stuart.

Maybe the incoming halfback needs to request their own mentor/whisperer (like Johns at Parramatta) potentially.

Or the Raiders need to speed up the process of creating a Director role for Stuart and bring someone else in if they want to win a premiership anytime soon.

But ultimately glad you liked it. It was fun using the hero’s journey to the quest to find a new halfback and win the prize.

If you mean the lime green milks…no.

Here's how the Raiders write their Hollywood ending

Thanks Dutski, I try and do things I bit different to the norm, and one of my favourite things about sport is all the speculating and imagining we get to do along the way 🙂

Thanks dogs. Your name reminded me, there is one very famous Raiders player with an incident who didn’t make the team 😉

They should bring Norm back, I feel he resonated with the target audience better than anything since.

We had the Baby Broncos, Dragons are the Retirement Village Broncos…:)

Milf has signed with the Bunnies, which I think is good for him, but changes casting of film slightly 😉
