Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Off field concerns re. scott deeply concern me. Rick has spoken about how this is the tightest group he has ever coached and dont underestimate the impact that is having on the field. Does it mean a kid like scott wouldnt fit in. No it doesnt, but youd need to be confident that he can buy into the c...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

We’re a win from the big dance I don’t really care for this thread atm. Centre is the least important position in rugby league atm. But us having such good players there compared to almost everyone else bar Easts has been our biggest advantage man to man since 2016. I like that our right centre can...

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

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...

Re: Hudson Young referred straight to judiciary

I think he didnt react cause he had just scored a try. My prediction is he'll get a double digit layoff. There was 2 attempts to eye gouge the player. Does anyone know if they will be treated as 2 separate incidents or if they will be considered together?

Re: On the move? This is why your club is in danger of relocation

FWIW I reckon west tigers should be relocated to perth. They would still play circa 10 to 12 games in sydney, and could come up with creative membership opportunities on that basis. They wouldn't even have tp change their name!

I took a few looks at wightons try and its a try every daybof the week. He didnt lose possession of the ball. The defender tried to dislodge it and it spun in the process but he always had his hand on the ball. I love it how that was sent up no try and yet turbos goes up as a try!!

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...
