Re: Williams or Sezer

Why would we release him? Sammy could do his acl next week. We need the depth. In saying that, I don't think Hingano is as bad as some on here make out, can't judge him until he has an extended run in his actual position.

I never thought I'd see a day when a Canberra Raiders side has conceded 44 in 5 games and the best defence in the comp. Pinch me I'm dreaming. The trade off is our attack is fairly ordinary, it'll only get better though. If it means winning games of Rugby League I'll take a few less points scored. B...

Any good rugby league judges know that Sezer is a better than average defender for a half. That’s why opposition coaches don’t consistently target his Avenue.

Sezer is one of the better defensive halves in the comp, Williams is one of the worst. It's a huge gap. Having said that WIlliams did get a pass mark defensively in his first game, so perhaps last week was a one off and there may be some improvement in that area this year. See he just isn't. Where ...

Sammy. Halfback seemed a bit of a coin toss to start the yr. In this case the old adage 'you dont change a winning side' has to apply.
That's a rubbish adage too though. If we were to apply that Tapine wouldn't be coming back in. If you can improve the team you do it.

Gotta say I'm loving the way Rick spoke in that presser. Played it down, not getting too ahead of himself. And he's correct. We weren't that good. In the past I feel he's slightly overplayed some of our wins. Good to see the great man is learning.

Am I the only 1 that finds the wording of the Sezer injury report slightly odd? Sezer will continue to be assessed weekly to determine his return to football'. Hmm. How did he do this 'oblique injury'? I could be reading too much in to it and be completely wrong. I usually am.

Joey Leilua is a brain dead footballer that will cost you games and win you games. I've made peace with it. He's virtually uncoachable.

Not remotely concerned about Jack. The foundations are there. Was always going to take probably half a season for him to consistently nail 5/8 ,he'll throw in the odd shocker and as Woodge pointed out, he still did some good things. It's a work in progress but he'll get there.
