Re: Canberra Raiders looking to re-sign Jordan Rapana

I'd let Sam Williams walk and take Ryley Jacks on the same coin every day of the week and twice on sunday. Otherwise i dont need a utility to upgrade Havilii, i've come to really like what he gives us as a change of pace hooker who can play good minutes as a middle Didn't Ryley Jacks knock us back ...

Re: Aidan Sezer to battle for 2020 Canberra Raiders spot

Sezer doing a great job of advertising himself in recent weeks. I still don't see there being a huge demand for a late 20s borderline NRL quality halfback, I imagine we'll need to subsidise a fair amount of any deal.

Props come into their own in their late 20s which is right where Papalii is now. He and Klemmer are the two best front rowers in the NRL and Papalii is going to finish his career as a Raiders legend.
Amazing he just turned 27. One of NZ's greatest players.

Roger, I was talking about 2017 when he called the police to tell them he was drink driving. He lost form and his Australian Jersey that year, was selected for Samoa and found the buffet.

A good controlling, organising halfback who knows how to make the right plays in critical moments of the game. Anything else is secondary.
Clamour for Sezer's return and then start threads complaining that we're not closing out matches while under pressure.

Re: Williams or Sezer?

I thought he had his best half of the season up until the point he decided to do a starjump in the Eels attacking line. He was then MIA in the second half but he kept the errors to a minimum. That was as good as we can expect from our current options.
