Re: Health and fitness

Fair call EJ! Lowest moment? I have a couple. I had a moment on the bike at Port at about 130ks, where I really struggled. I knew I was only about half way, and it nearly broke me. I just tried to shut my head up, watched my wheel, and eventually came out of it with about 20k to go. I also struggled...

Re: Toughest preseason ever 2019

I think Sammy has the preseason interview canned form when he debuted -‘ trying to prove in the off-season I can play regular first grade and try to cement a spot’. He’s been saying that for years.

Re: TPAs per club revealed

Off the top of my head Paulo - has underperformed for the majority of his time here. Sia - while solid, most of the hype around Sia was he was a leader - he has led a front row rotation that has underperfomed for the last couple of years. Sezer - has underperformed and regressed Lui - is a fringe fi...

Re: Canberra Raiders 2019 squad

We are curry going into 2019 in a worse position than we have been in squad wise for 3-4 years. We have lost 2 starting props, a starting half, and 2 depth props. We have 1 winger and our depth half on long term injuries. Bateman is a good signing, I’ll pay that. Our replacement prop recruiting is a...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

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 the signing. I expect the last two spots to be filled with train and trial players. Surely it's not a sm...

Re: Time to get tough: Tongue

100% behind stricter punishments, lifetime bans and sitting out players while under charge. Not sure about reduction in salary cap, but I see the reasoning. These guys are in the public eye, and receive significantly above average wage to perform their duties as an employee of each club. One of thos...
