    Here is the latest news from both the Sea Eagles and Raiders camps:

    Manly prop Jason King has received a final clearance to make his return from a chest injury against Canberra at Brookvale Oval on Sunday.

    That means someone else in coach Des Hasler's 18-man squad will miss out. One option would be for Luke Williamson to start at hooker with nominated rake Chad Randall being 18th man. !dance: !dance: !dance: :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Canberra have question marks over centre Craig Frawley (calf) and interchange forward Michael Weyman (ankle). Coach Matthew Elliott has six reserves as a precaution.

    Hopefully those 2 players are injured and des follows this advice - we saw it in round 1 and chad hasnt done anything to prove it was a bad move.

    I would like to see a another late change - Hicks into the centres & Creary on the wing but I doubt that will be happening.

    I believe Hicks into the centres and matai on the wing would be a better option.

    not likely since matai is a centre. and creary is number 1 winger with more experience

    You need your best 13 on the field and Matai is a better all round player than Creary any day of the week.

    I honestly dont understand why Stewart isnt on the bench anyway. Why are we constantly running 2 hookers???? In this day they should be 80min players!

    IMO: Stewart for Randal.

    No I have not seen Matai play on the wing, but he will handle it. I have seen Creary and he just doesn't seem up too NRL standard in my opinion. Looks like we are stuck with Stepho in the centres anyway.

    matai looks nothing like a winger to me - steppa would be a better winger IMO.

    Creary goes well on the wing and covered for Hoppas broken leg in 2003.

    I think Randall getting dropped would be a good thing. He has been very poor and Williamson will stiffen us up in the early exchanges.

    I hope we're not throwing money at Randall trying to re-sign him. He can stay and play PL for $25k IMHO.

    I did happen to notice terry randal sitting on the side line at the St George match.

    Im just wondering how much influence this is having to keep him in a role that should be occupied by "1" 80 min player.

    A majority of NRL teams are playing with 2 hookers. It's just that we're better off with Willo at hooker and Dunley on the bench than havin g pretty boy preening himslef and missing tackles in the first 30.

    Too bloody right Flipper. In an ideal world he would be judged on his on field performances, but it's not an ideal world.

    If he does get "ommitted" I wonder if he will a run in P/L or sit on the bench carrying the drinks like Brett Lee. As for Terry I would prefer him to playing at 50 yrs of age than Chad.

    They should be stitching up Monas & Hecks before they even start thinking about retaining Chad.
