Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

You guy's think it would be wise to put pommy William's at 7 halfway through the season when we are travelling so well? It could be pretty disruptive I mean it's not perfect but If you want him playing in the finals it's better now than later. All he has to do is concentrate on defending well and g...

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

Consistent defense and familiarity probably got him there. Oldie was good last time he was there. He brings more energy than Kris.

Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews

I would leave Papalii at home. He doesn’t need to travel to Darwin. As others have mentioned we've got the bye coming up but if you're concerned about wearing him out we might see the same prop rotation as last origin with papa on the bench. Though with the longer turn around I think we'll see him ...

Re: Rapana and Tapine named in New Zealand squad to face Tonga

Johnson almost looked like a passenger against us. I wouldn't be picking him this test. Morris made a good point in his presser about wanting him to play next week to get more game time. On Morris, I have to say he makes my dislike of Cronulla lessen a little. He is infinitely more likeable than Fl...

Re: Current dummy half

The game also goes for a finite amount of time. Giving the opposition the chance to put a lead on you so you can worry about playing catch up later in the match is not how I pick sides.

Re: 2019 Rd 14 V Sharks: Game Day

I’d say he’s just carrying injury or feeling his age tbh. The man is in his 15th year of first grade. So you’d imagine there’s 2/3 years before that as a teenager of essentially being a full timer as well. He was a pretty clever centre as a young bloke, hardened into a great, great second rower in ...

I'm starting to think there might be something happening off field with him. He seems healthy when he gets the occasional good charge in but the consistency is not there like it was earlier in the year.

It would work in some cases but it's never going to get a yes from me. Pick your strongest side against the oppositions strongest and let the lower tier guys sort themselves out against the other second stringers.

Re: Current dummy half

I think some of Havili's issue is the lack of full game fitness in the hooking role. We seem to be running an interchange strategy with him and Starling that keeps Havili on there until it's obvious he's tired then we bring Starling on. Some of that fatigue decision making gets tidied up if we're ru...

This'll be won through the middle. If they beat us there they'll kill us on the shift out wide. Need to target Blayke Brailey back on an angle with numbers.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Can be hard to gauge a half until you see them playing against at least reserve grade. O'Hagan had big wraps but his defense is really letting him down. Would love to see someone like Westcott kick on.

Re: Matt's Match-ups 2019

The only reason I can think he's got Sutton on the bench is to try and balance the side out (I don't agree with it). Braden Hamlin-Uele will be hard to stop. Really need Sutton to go after him when they come on.

That's quite an ask for big Roycie to defend wide. I would have moved Collins wide before shifting your best go forward in Hunt.
