Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

I assume the NRL would have some relief clause depending on how many games he misses.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

Yeah that's him. That's why you only pay him min wage.
The eels playing Kaysa for 80mins or subbing him with Will Smith as a make-shift hooker was a pretty bad choice.

My issue is that the sentence is so bloody weak. Imagine if any of us, a 'Joe Bloggs' if you will, did this out in town and was charged.

Seemed like Mounties got half of the first grade trial last year. If there was no full Mounties trial then it’d be like first grade going from 0.5 trials to 2 and Mounties going 0.5 to 1.
A step in the right direction at least. I'm already looking forward to the trials :). Such a tragic.

I doubt anyone talking about signing Moses is expecting to pay 800k to do it. Nor would they pay that much if that was his asking price. I can't see any club paying 800k for Moses without parra chipping in. He'd probably end up going to england to try and get a better deal. I'd say no to signing him...

Never thought I'd see the day when Mal Meninga would back another club over ours.

Hasn't he been in and out of the club a few times each season to work on specific things?

So people's thoughts on the Dufty rumour? Never been a Dufty fan. Bevan French 2.0 at the moment.

I wish we could discuss this over a ginger beer. Be a good discussion. I want the raiders to finish top 4. They won't because they don't have the halves combo to do it.

Re: Is Jack Wighton the answer in the Canberra Raiders halves jigsaw puzzle?

If they plan to play him at 5/8 then he better be spending a lot of pre-season there. There's an argument for doing that anyway just to help our depth for this year.

Depends what you want as your outcomes.

The official squad for all teams gets released at midday today. At least the 24 but some will announce more.
Judging on past efforts I didn't expect them to be as detailed as they were. It's an excellent move forward.
