Re: Opposition coach says Canberra Raiders Ricky Stuart's Rugby Union World Cup presence 'weird'

If you take note of what he is saying he is actually not bagging stuart at all.

Does anyone else think stuart could be thinking about who the next UK target might be? I dont watch rugby, but i assume that there could be some good players worth considering?

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

No one doubts his football potential, but he is a huge risk to our culture, which make no mistake, is one of, if not the most important contributing factors as to why weve had the success we had. Its no coincidence that stick has said that this is the tightest group of players that he has ever coach...

Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

Ok then. What was to POTY leaderboard this year. Id be surprised if jack is in the top 3 or 4 players. Id have had CNK, papa, hodgo and bateman in front of him. Thats not the hallmark of a 1m player. Im not saying he isnt a good player and good luck to him if he wants to test the market, but i think...

Hypothetical. Would you pay jack 900k if it meant we lost bateman and bj?

This is the gamble you take when you pay overs for young players because of their potential. Why would he want what’s offered if it’s not much different to what he has?

So much love on this board for our CCM winner! :lol: I trust it will work out. The guy is on $750k and the club was roundly bagged out for paying him that. It's not like it'd take a huge jump to compete with other offers. I'm not sure that's what he's on - it's what the extension option was, and I ...

Like pig. Not at all worried about this. If anything i see it as a positive that he is looking to extend his time with the club.

Im firmly of the opinion that we need to resign BJ and 600k sounds about right for the 2 time centre of the year. He is only 28 so has plenty of good football in front of him. However, if sezer can keep playing like he did last night, youd be tempted to keep him in the side with williams and move ja...
