Re: Jack Hetherington heading to Canberra Raiders

The Raiders have said publicly they wish to re-sign Luke Bateman. I hadn't seen that. Surely, his value to the club has dropped in the interim. Surely even Luke must look at the talent ahead of him in the roster and realise he wont get much more than minimum wage... There would have to be more oppo...

Re: Jack Hetherington heading to Canberra Raiders

Great signing..... I'm sure L. Bateman wished he took the 3yr deal while it was on the table. I'm sure this bloke will take his spot on less money.

Re: 2019 Rd 21 V Roosters: Teams and Previews

Honesty, it's not unusual for a player to loose a little confidence after a nasty injury like that. Be no shame in him playing a week in Mounties.

Id say Sezer will leave and we will try and keep Sammy as backup.

Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

What a difference 12months makes. Strongest bench I've seen in a raiders line up in years. The fact that we can be down 2 of our best outside backs and still have disagreements over the best replacements is outstanding. Great bench. If they all remain fit i wonder if hudson young will come back and...

Re: 2019 Rd 12 V Bulldogs: Teams and Previews

No chance it’s gonna be anything other than Sezer/Williams this weekend. And this is the exact reason why we have Williams on our books. Only real question is how the bench is made up. If Starling was hooked from Mounties I imagine he’ll be our No. 14. 1. CNK 2. Simonsson 3. Croker 4. Kris 5. Oldfi...

Re: Joey Leilua out for the year?

We're really limping around at the moment. If he's gone for the year I'd say Bateman too centre and Tapine too second row when they're fit. In the mean time Oldy has been solid enough in his time here.

His (wighton) physical presence in the defensive line is worth sticking with. He is getting pinged a little for his aggression but he hits like a tank for a guy of his size. He wont win them all if a huge centre or backrower can isolate him but he really holds his own. He also handed out a big dont...
