Re: Croker's kicking

Sam Williams is statistically the best kicker at the club. Not saying I'd take it off toots but to say there is no alternative is not a true statement.

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Haha. I'm in South America at the moment where its still Friday. Ive been agonising over finding the updated team sheet to see if Roberts is playing and to see if sezer is turning out for mounties.. And it's just occurred to me that I'm getting ahead of myself as well..

Re: Top 10 Canberra Raiders imports of all time

If the criteria is the effect the signing had on the club I think sisa waqa deserves a mention. He signed with us when no one else would think ennis, tedesco, proctor and mansor.. His signing was the turning point in my opinion. If the criteria is what they subsequently achieved in green then rapana...

Re: 2019 Mounties

On what basis does sezer sit out. His form doesn't warrant first grade selection so he is granted the week off. How does that make any sense. Think of the wonders playing reggies for papa last year. Even Austin came back an improved player for a few weeks. This is a really poor decision from Stuart ...

Re: Williams or Sezer

Sammy has to play. I appreciate that he has been inconsistent in the past but he's played a major part in both our victories. Sezer on the other hand was the worst on field by some margin against the storm. If Stuart selects Sezer it flys directly in the face of what he claims to stand for.. selecti...

Re: 2019 Rd 3 V Knights: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Sezer has been dropped. No doubt about it. And it's the right call. His performance last week was the worst by a half back since Matt Orford, who you might recall also got 'injured' after that performance never to return again.

I've accepted we are getting him. But, having never seen him play a single game, based on the reports ive read, I've got to say that i really dont know if hes the answer. We need a organising half.

Re: Canberra Raiders say George Williams deal not done

The question is, is he going to be any better than Sezer. I know it's one game in but we looked far more dangerous when Wighton had the ball. If Wighton keeps bringing what he did againstbthe titans he needs to stay at 6.

The fraction of the players salary (for injuries) is meant to be proportionate to the time he is off the field. This was not a rule that was designed for the raiders.
