Re: 2022 Rd 23 V Knights: Teams and Previews

Cotric is so much better than Hopoate ****. Hopoate seems destined for the second row, to me Yeah me too. He made a break at one point and everybody seemed like they were moving in slow motion. Wonder if he's capable of the same turn around as Kris. 2022 pre-season Kris was focused on sprinting and...

Re: 2022 Rd 22 V Dragons: Game Day

I’ve complained over the years about Guler’s poor defensive efforts and lack of full commitment when defending our line since 2019. I was told it’s a maturity thing and as he develops he’ll improve in this area as he has a higher ceiling than other forwards in our squad. I’m Just wondering when he’...

Re: 2022 Rd 23 V Knights: Teams and Previews

No coach in the NRL is starting their season with 20 year old rookie Savage at fullback. By his own admission he was learning how to organize a defense this year as a complete novice.
It's a hindsight pipe dream.

In all the circumstances, I think the sanction is reasonable. Yeah I thought 2 games might be on the cards but I'm ok with this. Any ideas on him being sacked were completely unrealistic, as were any that he shouldn't be punished. Wonder if panthers fans will have a new bark to add to the viking cl...

Re: Canberra Raiders make club statement on Ricky Stuart press conference

The Club does not have any option but to agree with whatever NRL sanction is coming. The Raiders will then assess wh...

I just hope we dont make the 8. Not with the way our attack is.

Im not suggesting Stuart needs to go... but we need different ideas in attack. We lack creativity big time.
Hoping your team loses is not going to end with better attack.

Re: 2022 NRL Round 21: Teams and Game Day

It looks likely they'll go 3/4, but there's 3 games they could lose if they drop off a bit or cop concussion protocols / a key injury.
Parra are another side to watch with interest.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2022

Matthew Eisenhuth would be an ok backup/pushing the other forwards. He's had experience playing that lock role at a side that bases their attack around that position. But I doubt he'd move to compete for a bench spot.
