Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Very disappointing - the way that game was refereed and the stop start nature fell right into Manly's hands. If we play them again and actually have a decent flowing game we would beat them 100% confident, but we got drawn into their crap and still almost pulled it out of the fire. Manly are rapidl...

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Pretty much a repeat of our first match. They were allowed to spoil all match long. Send someone to the bin in the first half when either team kept offending and that game is a lot more controlled.

Re: Ex Raiders... where are they now?

I just finished Sione Fauminua's book. A different time back then, he singled out Germ as dishing out some abuse he didn't appreciate. He mentioned Woolford, Croker and Davico as being part of the clique that would look down on others in the squad. Perhaps more interestingly he briefly mentioned tal...

Re: One on one steals

I don't like the rule but I'm glad we are the team exploiting it. A player being gang tackled by 3 shouldn't have to worry about having the ball completely locked up. Also in the long term it will discourage promoting the football for 2nd phase IMO.

I grew up playing the ball left footed because of Ruben Wiki. As a young Kiwi league fan he was one of the main reasons I got really passionate about supporting the Raiders as a 10 year old back in 1994. When he stuck with the Raiders in 1995 so did I.
