I admit I haven’t kept a close eye on news but I have wondered if BJ might not come back at all. It’s a pretty serious injury.

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

Im saying if Nick Cotric's tackle is the 31st worst tackle in NRL history, as opposed to the 8th worse, it equates to about a 0.00000004% difference in terms of the dataset we're talking about. Me saying it's one of the worst tackles we've seen is accurate. It's immaterial! If you're so god damn hun...

We dont have to worry about goalkicking.

Re: Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad signs two year deal with Canberra Raiders

He's got a long way to go for mine to do for this club what Schif did
That guy CARRIED this organisation for years. CNK is a 8.5 or more / 10 in every facet of the game bar one. But it's a very important part of a fullback's game.
Im excited to see how he goes developing that last piece of the puzzle.

Re: 2020 centre and wingers

Yeah basically Simo is going to play anytime a back is out. Because if it's CNK, you'd move Raps or Cotric there, with Simo playing the wing, if one of the wingers is out, he's an easy swap and if one of the centres is out, Cotric goes in and Simo takes his wing spot If that's how it plays out, Simo...

I think Cap wise, if Rapana is willing to stay for 400-450k, keeping him makes the most sense and then we've got Simmonson to play when CNK, Rapana, Cotric, Beej or Croker are unavailable due to injury/suspension/rep duties... which probably means he's playing more than half the season in firsts And...

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

Personally I think Cotric should still have 4-5 weeks with no priors for that tackle. I don’t think it’s intentional, but it doesn’t matter, there has to be strong disincentive to get that result out of the game. I don’t think 3 weeks quite cuts that. Yeah i agree Ive got no problem with it in cont...

Re: Nick Cotric takes early plea, suspended three weeks

The first two I concede but the last one (origin) is by far the worst. One tackler lifts him up and the second tackler drags him straight back down head first. Anything could have happened there. That's 3 in 2016 and a 'fan video' is hardly definitive of the season as a whole. So a minimum of 3 in ...

At about 1.50 a warriors player on a knights player, Lands SLAP bang on his back, he's horizontal, nothing close to vertical. There is NO chance you truly believe that tackle is worse. None.
