Re: Cash splash: Canberra Raiders $3.5 million retention drive

Totally agree with a few posts here. Whitehead has one of the best league IQs going around, and a lot of it is unappreciated from average joe's

Re: Joey Leilua cleared to return to training

Just did a quick wiki, 199 games which we knew but scored 30 tries in 54 games at Newcastle is impressive, 39 in 86 for us is excellent still. I suppose his assists for Rapa are probably enormous. Other thing of interest is he's 186cm 106kg, Meninga wasn't any bigger. Surely they just didn't update...

Re: Canberra Raiders sign Wigan Warriors half George Williams on three year deal

Also I think people are selling short some of Joey's team mates saying Ricky had far superior weapons outside him. Ours were better but knights were no slouch. Having rudder at 6 meant he played both sides, centres and wingers were matt Gidley, tahu, hughes, Albert and Robbie O at the back, plenty o...

Re: Where do you rank Papalii?

Raiders legend, totally. And he seems to be improving still which is scary for other teams

But I would never use Clyde as a measuring stick. 2 Clive Churchill medals, regarded at a time the best player in the world in some circles.

Re: Williams or Sezer?

It was clear from the start of the game Sezer had his mojo back, he increased his foot speed to engage the line before passing. My only issues was when you have a spine player clearly in form, just give him more ball n let him do his thing (I understand why hodgo didn't as he has had sezer there for...

See I disagree with Phil, I think it was a nice pass, but it came about due to lack of options, I can't recall who but someone went through the line, Pearce runs behind them, he has to pass it or it's an obstruction, and I don't think the pass was that risky. But hey great moment and he had to nail ...

Great kick sezer, once again slow service when it's his kick. Would love to give him more time.

And when he is playing lime this please give him more ball (any player in form for that matter)

One thing Oldfield does well (not chip kick or draw and pass clearly) but he picks the middle of two players and runs hard and makes them.tackle him, won't be the last time so we see people smash I to each other trying to tackle him

All that pressure was from another Jack mistake, I love him but man it's the type of errors, unforced errors are the worst.
