Sia ready if Raiders rested

Raiders coach Ricky Stuart will consider resting one of his middle forwards against the NZ Warriors on Sunday, paving the way for Sia Soliola's return from a facial injury. Stuart has named the same 17 players that flogged St George Illawarra last weekend, but will be tempted to rejig his engine room two weeks out from finals after an exhausting campaign from his big men this season. Veteran Soliola was cleared last weekend to return from a sickening Le Fort fracture across his face suffered in early July, but instead took on ball boy duties. The likes of Josh Papalii, Dunamis Lui, Ryan Sutton, Hudson Youing and Joe Tapine have shouldered the load in his absence across a gruelling back half of the season and Soliola's availability gives Stuart a chance to rest one or two of his weary troops. "We've got a lot of boys that I think need to be rested especially heading towards the finals," Lui said.
