Re: Canberra Raiders young gun Hudson Young set to sign new deal to end 2024

This is great news. I was so impressed by him last year, he's been playing really well and he cleaned the dirty stuff out of his game.

I was prepared to give the benefit of the doubt to the "home" jersey, but after watching the trial today, nah. It sucks ass. Hope we wear the heritage all season.

Re: 2021 Trial V Roosters: Teams and Game Day *Teams p1*

Pretty encouraging performance all up. The first half was a decent standard of footy given the heat and the first run of the year. In terms of the positions which remain up for grabs I'm not sure we learnt too much. As hrundi says all of the guys vying for a spot in the centres showed glimpses, tho...

Agreed, it looks like we're about to find out exactly how much of an impact the events of last year had on his season and what he can do without that hanging over him.

Re: Sam Williams reportedly targeted by Wakefield Trinity

I'm very happy for him, he well deserves to be a leading half somewhere. He's a good and loyal Raider and, well, if he finds himself homesick...I'm sure there'll always be a spot of some kind - whether as a player or a coach - for him here.
