Re: Matt Frawley elevated to Canberra Raiders top 30

If he can tackle then im not sure what sezer offered that he doesnt. He slotted a field goal from thw sideline in the 9s. Seems to be more of a running half. For the record i dont think he is a top echelon half, but i also dont think he is as bad as has been made out by some here.

Youd have to think that our final spot will be an outside back. Thats where we are skiniest imo, particularly with Scott in limbo

Re: Jack Wighton signs four-year extension with Canberra Raiders

I reckon this deal is spot on in terms of length and $ (if the rumors of 750k are correct). I was extremely critical of anyone saying we should pay him more, but to suggest that this amount is overs would be far off the mark. There wouldnt be a starting first grade half on less than 500k per annum s...

This will ensure that we carry his cap until the latest point ...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

The more i think about this, the more i think that publicly announcing this burgess role is a way for them to spread his cap hit over 10 years (taking a modest salary cap hit each year) vs being socked 1m for 3 years which would be debilitating.

There’s no way Scott is a better winger than Simonsson I agree. Simonsson and cotric will be our starting wingers. Make no mistake about it. For the record, i reckon bj will leave otherwise Scott will be coming off the bench until he finds some fitness (remembering that he is currently injured)
