Matt... if Josh Hodgson loses the skin due to the "injury rule" then the injury rule needs to be thrown out.

But yeah, fair point. We did do a good job against the Sharks, despite our second half clock off, probably our best win of the year. Still, I don't consider them in the same tier as the Roosters/Storm/Rabbits
Id rather play souths than sharks

Yeah but that doesn't derogate from anything I've said. I don't believe we can seriously know whether we are legitimate contenders until we see the team start to take those scant opportunities against the better sides.
Like the sharks....

Re: 2019 State of Origin II: Queensland V New South Wales

I still cant believe how much wighton is a legitimate option to replace cleary in the halves for game 3. I supported his move to the halves all the way bit this is a meteoric rise and he should be damn proud of himself

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

betting agencies are offering punters 13-1 for Raiders to win the premiership, so that's about how well the Raiders are contending right now Long range markets like that are heavily influenced by where the money is on. However im pretty happy with those odds. Thats a fair chance in a 16 team field.

An injury to 1 Hooker and we need to get dispensation from the NRL. How did this occur? If I was the NRL i would say sorry but that that is poor management.

Re: Jarrod Croker

The thing with centres is that you can't just compare them to people that currently only play centre in FG. You're up against fullbacks, wingers, five-eighths, and a lot of those guys are also better than Croker. I think Wighton has barely played left centre at first grade level but in a blow by bl...

Re: Williams or Sezer?

He's literally one of the worst halfbacks on the list, and that's taking into account a number of second stringers listed. No question the standard of halves has dipped significantly over the decade, but that to me says even more about his level. We need a better halfback in order to win a premiers...

Re: Williams or Sezer?

I could be wrong but I believe the word 'Sezer' roughly translates to 'seven tackle set' in English. I could be wrong but I believed the word ‘afgtnk’ roughly translates to ‘but my boi!’ In English. Give it a rest for a night, Sezer played well. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190607/ef94b72a499...
