Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

I've got a lot of time for Smiths-Shields. I think he's going to be great. But I think next year is 1 year too early for serious first grade time. He'd be fine with what Kris has done this year. Keeping in mind Kris ended up being our 3rd backup after Simonsson and Oldfield. I'd be signing a back th...

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

If our first choice next year is:

2. Simonsson
3. Croker
4. Cotric
5. Oldfield

Our premiership window is this season. It shows a lack of depth that is required to seriously compete. If BJ and Rapana are both going we need to make a signing.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

How quick is Smith Shields? At the moment we have a lot of power in our backline and a lot of skill but Simo is the only regular with good speed. (Oldfield being a backup) Kris I don't think will be a regular starting FG'er. He's solid enough but hasn't shown the ability to influence a game or have...

Re: Who would you prefer to play in the Preliminary Final?

My gut tells me guys like Cappy who are there every day and overhauled our defense have had more to do with this season's success than Ennis.

Turpin is a hooker not a half. No other half would have to compete with him on the market.

Re: 2019 Preliminary Final: Teams and Previews

Same team with Papalii to start. No one is missing any games.
None of this BS hoping the other team fluffs it at the start. Guler / Horsburgh and Lui are good enough to hold their own when they come on. The Rabbits and Manly run trash benches. We have to fight their best with our best.

Man it was hard to give points this game. We got a good hand dealt to us with the storm starting so poorly with Papa off. The Roosters won't offer us the same leeway.

Thanks. If he doesn't play I hope Havili comes onto the bench for him.
There's been new photos since then. No strapping or bib and hitting it up into the forwards. He's ready to go.

Let's not avoid the elephant in the room. Smith out for 80. Just not good enough from him. He still has the 2nd innings to redeem himself. If not then he needs to be shown the door.

Re: Canberra Raiders sign Australian Schoolboys forward JJ Clarkson

:) Yeah I can't see him making the step up either. Our 2020 reserve halves make up is going to be real interesting. Could end up with anything. It'd be absurd if it somehow ends up being 6. S Williams and 7. Sezer lining up for Mounties.
I can't imagine that ever happening.
