Re: Liam Knight staying with Raiders in 2019

Hmm. The raiders apparently emailed the bunnies about him being released there. We denied it about the same time that dufty was assured of a full back spot at the dragons following them pulling out of the Hayne wreck. Now that they've signed Norman I wonder if the dufty move is back on again

Re: Cap management

Hodgo is a stud. There isn't a better hooker in the game at the moment. The only concern I have with him is his big game experience. Never seen him dominate a test. Played finals for us injured but didn't stand out in these games either. Hope he can prove me wrong in september 2019!
