Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly settle three year deal for George Williams

It's clear he's been leaving for a while, i think he wanted to be out by now and Wigan dug their heels in... is it great that his response is to just phone it in (if that is indeed what he's been doing)? No. Probably not, but then i dont think he's coming here t...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

that's not how i recall it. I thought he one our best in all his games there and that he hasnt played the middle again since because it fit best for the team. I agree he's a great edge player, and i think if circumstances required it, he'd be a great middle forward too.
