Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

I honestly don't believe the roosters cheat the cap. They manage it properly. For example, they've signed Victor Radley on a 5 year contract with practically no first grade experience. Does here honestly believe he'd be on more than 300k? But in a couple of years everyone will be saying how can the...

I'm gonna speculate and say that if Bennett goes we are a strong chance to get him. Wasn't that one of the big reasons he left in the first place? Didn't he want to play under Bennett?

I reckon Wighton to 5/8 is a good move. Sure he failed last time but he is not the player he was last time. We also have a much more dominant 9 this time. I've been critical of his positioning at the back for a while but cannot doubt his defense or running game...

Looks like a ridiculous deal for us. If he's rubbish as many UK players are we are stuck with him for up to 3 years. If he is good then we lose him as he is entering his prime as a player. Presumably we'd have to pay another transfer fee for him to break his contract again in 3 years and resign with...

To be fair Austin is not in the same league as Norman. Off field issues aside, I consider Norman to be an elite organising half. He was on the cusp of origin selection last year for good reason.

Re: NRL ban Jack Wighton for 10 matches, impose $30,000 fine

The raiders got this very wrong. I wouldn't be surprised if it does increase after he is sentenced. Even if it was his first offence, what he has reportedly done was disgusting and a club with the values that I'd like to be associated with would have terminated him.

Sometimes it needs to get a lot worse before it can get better. Often the worst thing can happen is to be thereabouts every couple of years cause there isn't much pressure to change.
