Re: 2019 Rd 11 V Cowboys: Teams and Previews

Canberra Raiders closer than past fortnight suggests It was Canberra's second close loss in two weeks, but don’t try and compare this current iteration of the side to the one that made narrow defeats an art form last season.

Soliola can also play in the centres, and scored a try last time he did, if I remember correctly.

Re: Williams or Sezer

Only difference is, Sezer might finally be playing with the potential we all know he has considering the whole squad has had an attitude adjust...

Re: 2019 Rd 9 V Roosters: Game Day

After 9 rounds we're in the top 4. Injuries may cruel our season but in comparison to previous years we are flying. Sezer/Williams will work it out on its own. Cotric to centre, Simonson in for Rapana, we still have a shot at going deep into the finals. Still gotta be happy with the way things are g...

Re: 2019 Rd 7 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

I would say game management could improve but my focus is not the 2 at all. I think the try is clearly the correct play and every team is taking that option. A try there is pretty much the game. What they aren't producing off the back of that decision is a really poor panic end of set (Hodgson). Th...

Cant help but feel that the team might be letting up a bit this week. They achieved quite a bit to get to 1 and 5 so far and you can see the effort is starting to take its toll. The bench will have to play significant minutes this week to keep the energy levels up. Worried we might lose this one, an...
