Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Im pretty sure i recall bateman saying he prefers to play on the edges, but would play middle if thats what is required. For the record id keep him on the edges.

Ricknickmen, i dont watch much other (non raiders) rugby league games either these days, but i did catch 5 mins of the storm game and in those 5 mins i saw vinavalu set up a try which was overturned by the vid ref because he jumped too early and impeded the full back.

I thought it looked far worse than it was. No way shouldve been sent off. For the record, no player has been sent off for a lifting tackle since 1995! As has been said, he was trying to make a dominant 1 on 1 tackle, lafai stepped and it meant he caught him awkwardly. Pretty sure he has a clean reco...

Re: Williams or Sezer?

I thought Sezer played exactly the role we need him to play. Kicked well. Defended ok. Ran the ball well. Went missing a bit, but I'm ok with Wighton and Hodgo running the show. We lost that game not because of Sezer. We lost that game because we played seriously dumb football for 50 minutes.

So what your saying is that Sezers stats were average at the titans because of his team mates. That could be true. However, it could also be because he is an average player. If your hypothesis was true youd expect that his stats would have improved when playing in a better outfit. Given that his sta...

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...
