Re: Hudson Young signed to top squad

Seems like he has learned from his mistakes. Good on him.

Does anyone know if he is any good? I'm trying to understand if he is a real 1st grade prospect or simply an addition to make up our numbers?

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

According to the lurker. Wonder if we are chasing anyone else: The Raiders are filthy with former Storm half Ryley Jacks, who signed with the Titans last week. Jacks all but agreed to go to the Raiders before performing a last-minute backflip to head up to the holiday strip last week. The Raiders ar...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

I just hope they do what's required to get his shoulder right. Even if that means missing a chunk of the first half of the season. I'd hate to see him rush back only to leak points like our current halves do. That would be suicide for his career (and possibly for our season)

Who'd you rather out of boyd, junior or TPJ? all worth circa 750k. You'd have to say TPJ has the most potential. If we did somehow secure him it'd be a massive win #stillcantseeithappening

I have a suspicion that we'll sign some players but the way the salary cap works there is no incentive to get them now and have their entire cap on your books.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

Source?

I don't think neither Mann or Jacks were offered a crack as our starting 6. Mullholland has previously come out and stated that we feel we are well covered in the halves for next year. Im honestly expecting Wighton to slot in at 6, cotric to slot in at fb and oldy to the wing.

Re: Ryley Jacks linked to Canberra Raiders

I can't imagine a scenario where anyone would offer Shannon boyd a 4 year 700k deal either. Doesn't mean it hasn't happened. Brennan is desperate to get results this year to keep his job. They were linked with Corey Norman so clearly had some $ to spend.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

With the squad we have I'd take TPJ over Johnson. We have no trouble scoring points and Johnson is erratic. It's also by far the most realistic option. We are desperately short of another quality front rower. Imagine having a half that can kick field goals!? With that difference we comfortably make...

Wonder if the raiders will make a play for Sean Johnson in 2020. If cappy had any sort of relationship with him it could be possible. Would cost a bomb but would be worth it. Can you imagine a spine with hodgo, sj and wighton.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

I assume he means taane milne and I agree. Not that the axe (David milne) was the raiders greatest ever full back, but that taane Milne could play the depth role we require on close to minimum wage. Remember we also have oldfield and Abbey on the books. Both are handy depth players.

Just like the storm didn't release maloney and Cody walker for no reason.. And why the broncos had good reason to release Ash Taylor... Isn't that right GE. there could be countless reasons why they agreed to release him. To suggest that means he will never develop into a FGer is ridiculous.

Re: Ryley Jacks linked to Canberra Raiders

I'd be happy to sign him on a 3 year deal if it's south of 200k. At best, he develops into a first grader and we upgrade him before his 3 years are up. At worst he fulfills our back up half role on close to minimum wage for 3 years, meaning we can release Williams and hingano and target a solid firs...
