Re: Nick Cotric and Jack Wighton selected for NSW Blues

When was the last time the blues had 2 Raiders players? We had Campo, TLL and Monnas play in 2009, surely two of them overlapped? But i dont remember that they did, so maybe they didnt? Good trivia question! How crazy is it that TLL is only 33. Well deserved for both these guys. Will be interesting...

Re: 2019 Rd 11 V Cowboys: Game Day

Croker epitomises why this club is so mediocre. No club in the league would pay/value him anywhere near what we do. Sentiment of him being local/being highly capped/being a point scorer... these things are “nice” but will committing a large chunk of our salary cap to a run of the mill centre win us...

Re: Williams or Sezer?

Sezer always had one of his few decent games for us last season vs the Dogs.

I am completely on board with rotating Williams and Sezer based on their career records vs opponents. Where it's a tie we can have an egg and spoon or sack race to see who gets the spot.

Re: Croker's kicking

Not worried about his kicking, but his general play has been poor the past few weeks. If he wasn't co-captain he'd be under real pressure.

I may be alone on this on the GH - but I'll be very surprised if Croker gets the left centre spot for NSW ahead of Latrell Mitchell.

Re: 2019 Rd 11 V Cowboys: Game Day

You have two options. Inept Williams or Bazel Fawlty Sezer. I am switching to team Sezer as he does provide some laughs when kicking into opposition and running around like a headless chicken. Sezer is absolutely not the option here, nor does he deserve to be promoted. If we're dropping Williams, H...

I wouldn’t be surprised to now see this happen a lot earlier than expected. Williams is phoning it in for Wigan and they are absolutely horrendous.

They all spiral it. Its a hit and hope. Its not a “good play” No- many backspin for accuracy to target a smaller area closer to the goal line; you spiral when your own kick position (too far out) or game station- praying for that drop so try a different style of kick- require a different technique....

Re: Williams or Sezer?

Having another look Sezer has 4 kick errors in 2 games. I remember him kicking into opposition players a lot in those 2 games, so it must be charge downs and kicks out on the full.

As was mentioned before you have to look at the stats relative to position. Id agree on error rate being a plus for Sammy, it's very low for a half.
