Re: Queensland Origin team

Mbye really shouldn't even be in the conversation. He's been terrible for most of the year and playing non-hooking roles for the last couple of years. He's not good enough to move someone in the backline to accommodate him and would provide a speed bump if defending in the front line. I can see a H...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Not that it's specifically relevant to the Raiders, but Hull FC signed second-rower Josh Jones from Salford, today. He's a pretty decent player and was much in demand. He would be in the same bracket as Sutton (although probably a bit better). It's been reported that he chose Hull because theirs wa...

The biggest concern I have moving forward is that the style of play we are going wit this year is very very taxing - I’d like to look at a stat of how many teams have injuries after playing the raiders, and how many teams have a win after playing the raiders.

Agreed Pickles.

If I'm being honest I could actually see Havili having as much impact in that same sort of way.

God I hope not. Even with their draw they probably need to win 10 of their last 14. Being a young side I don't know they handle that pressure.
