Re: 2020 Finals Week 2 V Roosters: Game Day

I’m a bit bemused about so many comments floating around the web about us playing a ‘rested’ Melbourne next week. Given the fact they rested 10 players in round 20, the vast majority of their squad will have only played 1 game in nearly 4 weeks. They played Souths in round 17 which was a solid matc...

I honestly think Cotric will be back in green within 2 years. The bulldogs contract would of been a mistake and eventually a blip in his career.

Re: Canberra Raiders announce Canberra Milk as new major sponsor for 2021

If my memory serves me right. In 2015 the broncos had a heritage jersey, with the collar. They wore that a fair bit instead of their home/away jersey. Kind of like what Raiders have hinted at next year Edit: according to an old reddit post the broncos wore their heritage jersey 6 times in 2015. Rds ...
