Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart admits a short turnaround might force him to make changes against top-four Parramatta. The Raiders mentor was also full of praise for the sacrifice emerging star Xavier Savage made in playing on with a shoulder injury in his starring performance in the 34-18 victory over the Cronulla Sharks on the Gold Coast on Saturday night. But the win came at a cost with not only Savage injured. Dally M Medallist Jack Wighton (chest) was unable to finish the game after copping a stray boot in the first half. State of Origin gun Josh Papalii also played reduced minutes after starting on the bench, with Stuart saying he had a few players busted up and he wouldn't be afraid to bring in new faces to face the Eels on the Gold Coast on Thursday night.
