Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Kris: still done nothing in FG whilst Cotric and Simonsson and Hors look like FG'ers. I don't think he'll have a career. Can go if he wants more than minimum. Guler: looks steady. Might get a top 30 contract at another club. Worth holding onto. Still showing promise. Murchie: Oldest of our forward y...

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Tapine is miles better than Young. Right now, and most likely as a ceiling. Young isn't Mother Teresa- he's struggled to stay on the park for discipline and suspensions himself and is also a noted penalty magnet. But he's red lining his game for far less impact than Tarps has. I'm not sure this argu...

Just on Whitehead. It looks to me that him and Wighton have finally really clicked with their timing with hole running etc in attack.
Agree on the combo. Wighton's athleticism should be a perfect foil for Whiteheads nous- in theory- good to see it warming up.

Horsburg is playing better footy but Sutton is better suited to start at lock if Tapine is out. Simply because Sutton offers zilch off the bench. I have Lui at two attempted strips the last couple of weeks, 2 penalties given and zero success rate. He needs to put that back in the locker. He's the ki...
