Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Green snags, Viking claps and a giant horn: Canberra unhinges as Raiders fever strikes For a city of 400,000 people, Canberra residents are good at turning up to things. It could be the country’s most popular flower festival, or its loudest muscle car jamboree or a game of AFL in the snow; this tow...

Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

2 sleeps to go, everyone! Please enjoy this video I put together of our finals campaign so far. Re-watching our games to put this together I am more and more confident that we can get it done. Just have to contain the Roosters with our defence.

Re: 2019 Grand Final V Roosters: Teams and Previews

Practice makes perfect: How Raiders hung on with 12 men The toughest 10 minutes of Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad's career were made easier by specific sin-bin training drills that Canberra have stepped up in recent weeks to grind their way into a historic grand final. Key to the Raiders' resolve has been...

Re: 2019 Preliminary Final V Rabbitohs: Game Day

Also, that first one that went to the video ref. How was that not a penalty to us? The Bunnies player clearly was on the ground with Sezer on him and then passed the ball. That's a penalty. Because it was the last tackle, the play finished when he was held so it was a PTB instead of a penalty. Does...

Kikau is unlucky to be facing 2 weeks for that.
Agree, not much in that at all. The hit was late and he got binned for the lateness which is what the refs have been cracking down on. As you say, it must only barely have qualified as a shoulder charge. Shouldn't be rubbed out for that.

Sack him, buy a half with the money. Seriously. This is fair.

based off the way the Raiders handled, Monaghan, Carney, Fergo and Dugan you would have to assume they might stay with their normal MO and sack him.

I'm predicting a big loss to the Tiges. After a narrow loss to the ladder leaders, the boys will cruise into this one expecting victory to fall in their laps.

Re: 2018 Rd 14 V Panthers: Game Day

IMO wet weather makes field position harder to earn (becomes a slugfest, lateral movement is more difficult) and therefore kicking is more important. I think it favours the Panthers based on that. Hope Sezer can have one of his rare good days with the boot.
