Re: Toughest preseason ever 2019

@neeegz How can you say our defence was not to bad? We conceded 540 points, which sits us as the 11th best team. The best defensive team and premiers conceded almost 200 points less then us. Our defence is terrible, it has been for years. Sent from my iPhone using The Greenhouse mobile app powered b...

I doubt the Cowboys would release either but if we aren’t getting Edwards I would take either Martin or Clifford.

Re: Edwards-Raiders rumour a dud

The Panthers and Gould especially have very little credibility when it comes to denying player/coach movement.
If and it is a big if we have the money to spend it is still entirely possible despite denials.

Re: North Queensland Cowboys 2019

That's a strong side. Yes it is isn’t it. Personally I would go Clifford over Martin and would also be very tempted to start Baptiste. Granville’s strength is his running game which is suited to the later stages of the half. Sent from my iPhone using The Greenhouse mobile app powered by Tapatalk

Re: Jack Wighton set for "shock" switch in Raiders shake-up

We know that Wighton is undoubtably a better defender then Sezer or Williams and shouldn’t get run over the top of. But defending 3 in is a lot more then tackle technique. Good teams put a lot of pressure on these players to make the correct decisions. Austin’s technique wasn’t that bad but his deci...

Re: John Bateman signs with Canberra Raiders

Tapines is a powerful runner of the football and a player you love sending at opposition halves. As a result he makes the opposition question themselves. However his defensive decision making on the edge is suspect. The benefit of playing him in the middle is that he attracts a lot of defenders and ...

Even in 2016 our defence wasn’t up to winning a comp. We finished 2nd and most of the teams in the 8 had better defence then us. Unfortunately it comes down to more then commitment.

So you sign a back up player as player 29 in your group effectively costing you nothing and use the money saved on player 29 to pick up Edwards as player 30 still pay him what ever it is you want to pay him.
