Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

Croker is only a bit above middle of the pack amongst starting centers but would well into the bottom end of players as far as influence on results. Also we shouldnt be paying him more for being a long term 1 club player, we arguably should pay him less. I’m of the belief that we’re paying probably...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

I think you overestimate Don & Ricky. Collins was probably the signing. I expect the last two spots to be filled with train and trial players. Surely it's not a smart play to release 2 reserve graders for 1 there has to be more to this you would think. Roache was just a development player, cutting ...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

With the club releasing Roache and Knight recently surely there's some signing news not too far away. There has to be. With our squad deficiencies for 2019 there is no way we'd release anyone at all unless we had something on the burner. I think you overestimate Don & Ricky. Collins was probably th...

We should be hitting Dufty up hard now that Norman has moved to the Dragons. A spine like this is pretty solid:

1. Dufty
6. Wighton
7. Sezer
9. Hodgo

Now that Rapana is injured the chances of Wighton to 6 now look slim as I don't want Abbey anywhere near first grade.
Duffy to Knights

Rumours this morning Milford wants out and back to Raiders
Where did you see those rumours?
It’s rubbish Milford will not leave Brisbane or his Family plus the Raiders could not afford to pay him $1 million. This will never happen. Also Milford is a FB.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

Wighton remains my first choice to partner Sezer but we're going to need to recruit another outside back for that to be an option. As for Nikorima. I would prefer him over Norman or Moses but he's not a number one half IMO. Options: A Johnston, G Jennings , ???? 1. Johnston 2. Cotric 3. Croker 4. L...

Sutton would be good injury cover off the bench if interchanges drop to 6.
But remember Sutton would want good money and the Raiders don’t have it.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

We apparently lost our two young halves from Mounties to other NRL Clubs already. Another great example for Club and team management. First I’ve heard of it. Who? Brambling is one and now if you are a Raiders fan you should already know this now go do the research and see who the other player is.
