Horsburgh will join a fairly exclusive club of Raiders Rangas if he gets a run. There is obviously Toungy but beyond that I have to go back to John McLeod as a strawberry blonde in 82’. Who am I missing? Who else has broken the golden rule of fashion and combined red and green without a colour in b...

Canberra Raiders reportedly interested in Wigan half George Williams

The biggest problem seems to be the reputed $500,000 transfer fee. Anything official on whether transfer fees are included in the cap? Sent from my SM-G570F using Tapatalk From the segyaro reports, they are. Perhaps it’s spread over the span of he contract though? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Teams and Previews

Yeah I’d prefer Abbey there at this stage. Got a bit of experience, has played some FG before and looks like he’s beefed up a bit in the offseason. Was the leading try scorer for Mounties last season so shouldnt have any trouble finishing off plays. Ideally it’s only a week or 2, then have oldfield ...

Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly set to offer Wigan half George Williams three year deal

English forwards go OK. But halves and backs killing it at NRL have been few and far between. It's a small sample size. I can't really think of one good one who came over in their prime since Ellery Hanley. Hardaker (spelling) won the man of steel award and then came over. Only lasted a year and a ...

From that highlight package his running game looks a little clunky. I think Nrl defences would sort him out quite quickly. Passing game and short kicking game look good though.

Don’t think he ever spent any time in Brissy. Bulldogs junior then went to Titans from there.

Very confident that J. Bateman will start. In his interview on 666 Stick stated that 4 of his starting 13 were injured. Likely Rapana, Leilua, Oldfield and Bateman.

I’m all for nabbing a marquee signing, but I just don’t think Townsend is good enough to be brought in 3 weeks before the start of the season as a half. It would likely push Jack back to FB when he’s spent pretty much all pre season at 5/8, I think Jack at least deserves the first few rounds in the ...
