Despite a series of woeful performances, it appears that the Raiders are sticking with their marquee signing Matt Orford for at least one more game. Orford has been listed in the starting team to play the Penrith Panthers posted on nrl.com today. One can only suspect that David Furner has either lost his mind, or knows something we don’t.
The team to line up against the Panthers looks like this:
Raiders: Blake Ferguson, Reece Robinson, Jarrod Croker, Joel Thompson, Daniel Vidot, Josh McCrone, Matt Orford, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs, Travis Waddell, David Shillington (c), Trevor Thurling, Bronson Harrison (c), Shaun Fensom. Interchange (from): Glen Buttriss, Josh Miller, Danny Galea, Brett White, David Milne, James Stuart
