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.

Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews

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. I thought Starling was brought in as 30th player. At the time of the dispensation, i think we had 10 players from our top 30 out, and needed t...

Re: Jarrod Croker

If there was a wierd team picked where a centre needed to be selected from only the raiders squad, id have bj,wighton and cotric ahead of croker. Thats just from our team..

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...
