The point here is for you to solve it, or wait for someone else to! Invite your friends to have a try is you wish.

I am just guessing- Rh6 followed by Rg6 and B×g4# if after Rh6 any random move let say Ne8  , Rg6 B×e7 clearing kings path R×g4 after any blacks move Rf3 or any move on 4th rank is is Checkmate
