Re: Sack Ricky

I've started to try and avoid this forum because it's pretty depressing. Sitting around today I had a brief moment of thinking a few things about Rick, and thought I'd jump on here and maybe read something positive. Nup. Usual rubbish.

Re: Wayne Bennett

How could anyone be against the idea of Bennett coming here?

Anyone that thinks he left the Knights in a rabble is slightly mentally loose - the TInkler effect was worse than the Bennett effect.

I can't see Ricky stepping aside - I can't see Bennett coming to Canberra - but we could do worse.

Re: Canberra Raiders legend Mal Meninga named an Immortal

Wonderful player, and justly deserved. He had a knack of scoring tries when we needed them too. I remember the 94 Major semi v the Bulldogs when we were a bit off our game and down 14-6 going into half time. Mal comes up with a play out of the blue from 30m out, charges past 4 or 5 blokes and puts ...

I love Bruce Stadium but it's on its last legs. Spent last weekend at Lang Park and walked down there from a pub just up the road. The atmosphere in Caxton Street with fans walking past was awesome.

Re: Sia Soliola re-signs for two years

Disappointing if I'm honest. Much like the Sezer signing, it's accepting what we've got and not doing much better. Everyone bangs on about Austin missing tackles - the inside man on the Milford tackles was Sia. He's too slow these days and rarely packs a punch. I guess if you get a highlight reel ta...

Today only went to show that this is a mistake.

Of the two halves we currently have - one is capable of breaking a game open and threatening the defensive line.

Re: Canberra Raiders re-sign Aidan Sezer for two more years

This is incredibly disappointing and immediately places the club in another 2 years of struggling to make the 8.

He isn't a game winner. He's not good enough to get us into the top 4 on a regular basis.

The decision to sign him is an indication that the Board are not serious about premierships.

It's not a recent thing either. Our recruitment of elite players died when Brisbane entered the comp, it was just masked by retention until 2000.
