Re: Jack Wighton pleads guilty to assault charges

What an odd stand to place your hat on. Visible evidence of him assaulting a woman but you'll defend his honour against some "hurtful" words. Interesting priorities you got there. If there is visuable evidence of him assaulting a women why has he not been charged by police ? Ill have a zzzz while y...

Re: Jack Wighton pleads guilty to assault charges

He forcibly kissed a woman without her consent. Do we want to split hairs here because I'm pretty sure that falls under the definition of sexual assault. The undesputed fact remains that Mitchell Pearce is an innocent man due to the fact he has never been found guilty of this charge and no one has ...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

I’d take a shot at Lolohea for 5/8th next season. I could be wrong (and not in the loop) but most his problems in the past stem more from training attitudes than actual football ability. Outside of the hot topic at the moment I think Ricky and the senior players set a pretty high standard off the fi...

They didn’t look like they were in the same library let alone the same page. The try where BJ came in well after the pass was gone would have been ...

I couldn’t really care what the club or the NRL do as punishment and we could make the worlds longest thread on this topic if we wanted to.

Wighton should just step up now in the media, apologize for what he has done. Have the Raiders install a 10 match ban and get ready for next season. He will probably just get community service, so he should spend this time working his passion of assisting indigenous people and families. Done! Sent ...

Re: Jack Wighton pleads guilty to assault charges

I know that’s what the article says, but I find it hard to believe that a ‘fan’ shook his hand and just wanted to tell him he liked him as a player, and Jack head butted him. Possible, but the story seems pretty unlikely. The fan might of shook his hand and told him some home truths about season 20...

Re: 2018 Rd 17 V Bulldogs: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I wouldn’t read much into Austin being on the bench this week, he is dropped and gone I would say. I think with Ricky always liking a utility/hooker type player in the 14 he just ran out of options and Austin became last man standing. If either one of Papalii, Bateman or Hingano available he wouldn’...

losing wighton hurts our ball playing, Williams greatest asset is his passing game so I can see that benefit.
