Re: John Bateman reportedly back two weeks earlier than expected

It will have no relevance whatsoever to the outcome for the tigers game. We all know that if Benji plays we lose :cry:

Re: Joey Leilua has successful surgery, but out for the season

I'm sorry Simo. I tried to entertain the scenario that was suggested. Clearly it's beyond some people to deal with hypotheticals. Fortunately (or unfortunately) this won't be something we'll need to face into in 2019. Hopefully Croker and cotric play so good for the remainder of the year that not ev...

Re: Joey Leilua has successful surgery, but out for the season

This is not something we need to face into for a while unfortunately. But assuming that cotric continues his form from the bunnies game you'd have to consider keeping him at centre. If BJ can reproduce his form from earlier in the year he also demands a starting centre role. I'd personally be inclin...

Re: Canberra Raiders looking to re-sign Jordan Rapana

This discipline should be applied to all signings not just rapa. That said, rapa is one of very few players that turn up every week. He is exactly the type of player we want at this club and there should be absolutely no reason why we'd need to offer him stupid money to keep him.

Re: Williams, Sezer or Hingaro??

I agree. I've certainly not written hingano off as a possible first grade half. I thought he was managed poorly last year and wasn't given the proper opportunity to demonstrate what he was capable of. If Williams is dropped right now hingano would be my pick for his replacement

Magic round is kind of a cool idea. I just don't know if its worth the effort. I would prefer they put their effort into promoting the game in areas where it was most welcome. A magic round in PNG or something like that would be wild.
Trouble is the 'magic' there would be players disappearing
