Re: Raiders Contracted Players - Updated 17 May 2019

Any word on who our 30th player will be? Doesn't this need to be announced in the next week?

Re: Canberra Raiders young gun Nick Cotric set to miss Origin II but could be back for Dragons

A 1 month injury means he'll only miss one game. That's as good a timing as you can get. With Rapana getting back to 100% and Hodgo still returning this break has worked out very well for us. I was initially pissed that we had our bye later given our injury toll but somehow the team managed to stri...

Re: Blake Austin signs with Warrington Wolves

Not sure how going to the UK moves him closer to home. I think he was miserable because he clashed with our team but the club offered him a lot of money which was hard to walk away from. While he strikes me as a decent bloke off the field he was incredibly selfish on it. It's ok to play the way he d...

Re: Is Papalli over rated?

Haha. I reckon he was a major reason why QLD won the match last week. They owned NSW in the 2nd half and it was largely due to papa and to top that off he ran for 180m 2 days later!! He'd be in the top 4 middles in the game at the moment.

There would be very few first graders who would be an upgrade on him based on current form... Just hope he can sustain it!

Re: Williams or Sezer?

With Hodgo being our primary organiser, I think it's fine to have 2 running halves. That said, he needs some sort of kicking game for us to be a premiership threat.

This is not something we need to face into for a while unfortunately. But assuming that cotric continues his form from the bunnies game you'd have to consider keeping him at centre. If BJ can reproduce his form from earlier in the year he also demands a starting centre role. I'd personally be inclin...

This discipline should be applied to all signings not just rapa. That said, rapa is one of very few players that turn up every week. He is exactly the type of player we want at this club and there should be absolutely no reason why we'd need to offer him stupid money to keep him.

Magic round is kind of a cool idea. I just don't know if its worth the effort. I would prefer they put their effort into promoting the game in areas where it was most welcome. A magic round in PNG or something like that would be wild.
