Re: 2019 Rd 13 V Tigers: Game Day

If Croker really is shot from one side of the field then no excuses not to hand the kicking tee over to Sezer who is at worse of equal standard.

At the very least on a kick restart. Sezer kicks a lot higher and with more float than the little dull low pokes Croker does.

Re: Hudson Young facing up to seven weeks on the sideline

Based on that footage, that’s a very ugly incident and deserves a lengthy suspension If we can avoid one because the MRC/Judiciary set a bad precedent, so be it. But that footage is damning to say the least. It doesn't look good I agree. The question is the severity of the charge in my mind. If he ...

Re: Canberra Raiders Origin chances

One of the big factors of having Cotric at right centre is that Trbojevic will presumably slot back in to the wing role once he's back. Considering that the other candidates aren't too flash and that NSW seem keen on including Cotric somewhere, I'd roll with Cotric at centre. I'd hate to see somebo...

Re: Canberra Raiders Origin chances

Can Mitchell play right center ? Keep the club combination of Croker and Cotric on the left and play Mitchell and Addo Carr on the right. Although this takes Mitchell away from the Cordner/Keary side. But ethier way it would be an option for NSW to pick the next best Center and Winger available at t...

Re: Croker's kicking

1 thing that I think would benifit Croker is that if he would possibly consider taking the ball back a couple more meters when not directly in front.

Re: 2019 Rd 7 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

Piss poor effort on that last Manly try by Murchie

As soon as the ball passed him he didn’t bother after that, if he actually gave a half decent effort and followed he might off being able to put a little more pressure on Croker coming through.

Piss poor effort and that stinks
