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...

Boys will have to be up this week. A few out of form Queenslander's will be looking to press their clams for an Origin spot..... This could be a pretty dangerous game for us.

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.

Re: 2019 Rd 5 V Eels: Game Day

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...

Shame about Tapine, hope he pulls up alright. If he and Havili are both out next week, we might be a little thin against the broncs.
