Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

Forget tpj... if we could get him cheap it would be for a reason. Theatre, the thing that gets me is that if he is the pretentious brat we all think he is them why would the club offer him 1m last year... surely there has to be no truth to that offer. On a different note what would peoples thoughts ...

Re: Ryan James signs with Raiders

I agree dubs. Ive always had a high regard for him. Injuries proving to be his down fall and while i cant help but think these will continue i live in hope knowing that tedesco similarly had an aweful run with injuries but now the bloke seems invincible

If Starling leaves us at the end of the season it might be worth investing in a livewire bench utility style of player.

Someone to bring on when we need points not defence.
Someone like milford?

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

I dont think that's a fair categorisation of why he went to Brisbane. He had killed it at every level at this club and couldnt get a run in FG despite the team being complete and utter trash It maybe that Stuart didn't like his attitude or didn't think he was going to be here long term anyways. But...

Re: Canberra Raiders centre Curtis Scott denies he is heading to Canterbury Bulldogs

There are a number of contributing factors here. With stuarts decision to focus on defence, it has affected our roster managment (replacing attacking players like bj with defensive players like scott). I think it also has a bearing on our structures. When you are an attacking team, as we were in 16,...

I think he has been one of our better players the past 2 rounds. If he keeps putting in as he is i will have absolutely no concerns with him occupying our right center spot.

On croker, i personally reckon he'd be selected for origin if it were picked today. He has gone another level this year. Solid in defence, awesome touches, kick chasing etc. Hope his form continues and he gets what he deserves

Re: Croker crowned most under-rated player of modern era

All this reminiscing about top players making us look pathetic at some stage reminds me of a slightly different experience. When I was in my teens I was picked in a team that included Tom Raudnikius.

He's being paid 1000 a week for the rest of the contract. Not for the year.
As in like 10k? Surely that's not enough. Only marginally in front of people earning job keeper!

While i hope we don't see him play for us this year, its good to know hes there as it provides us with some insurance

Re: Canberra Raiders look to open contract talks with Jordan Rapana

This is another good move from the club. Secure rapa for another year. I reckon hed still have a couple of solid years in him. Try and retain oldfield but I'd be happy to see him go for the opportunity to be a first grade spot.

As for Curtis Scott sshhssing the critics... if that is indeed what he meant... I daresay he needs to score more than one try, before he gets the right to do stuff like that.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

Rapana and oldfield are musts. If scott has played his last in green then he'd be replaced. If not then you'd expect him to be in the first 13 (assuming he gets back to the form we know he is capable of)
