Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Game Day

This is the day we find out if we have actually changed our mental approach. High pressure, high expectation match with a significant outcome - if we overcome our previous mental frailty and win, we lead the comp. If we have the slightest bit of complacency, we get done here. A win today and I’m on...

Re: Israel Folau

Folau is toxic for the ARU brand and it is a world cup year. The ARU will probably be prepared to take a financial hit in order to bury this as quickly as possible.

Re: ACT government looks to formalise community in Canberra Raiders contract

The government has an obligation to ensure the money is delivering the best possible benefit to the community as a whole and the best way to do that is to put terms and conditions into the agreement.

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews

Complacency is the biggest risk this week IMO.

The Broncos are lacking leadership in their spine and their middle 3rd. The only way they can beat us is if we go away from the game plan and make errors that gift them field position and possession.

I doubt it. The NRL backed marriage equality and stood up to the backlash. They won't risk the potential brand damage that comes with Folau.

Only reason I suggested Lui to drop off with the return of Tapine is I don't want to drop any of the others and really want to keep Young in the 17.
