Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Game Day

I'd really like to see Williams and Wighton play first and second receiver, rather than left and right. It plays to Williams' strengths as he can call more of the play and Wighton can attack the line wider out on both sides. It's bad enough for defences holding back thinking he might pass to Croker,...

Re: Canberra Raiders say George Williams deal not done

Williams had a decent game for Wigan last night, but was outplayed by Jake Trueman, who completely ran the show.

He's as good as any young player in the world. Get it done now, Raiders, before Leeds, Wigan or another NRL team does.

Re: Canberra Raiders say George Williams deal not done

I'll make one final plea to not agree a fee for Williams and to throw the money at Castleford for Jake Trueman.

Mentioned him a while ago. He's younger, a class above Williams, an organiser and likely to be cheaper.

We get three games a week over here in the UK.

Just had a quick check and we have the Raiders in rounds 1, 2 and 3.

Quite a bit of Souths, too. Looks like we're following the English players this year, rather than fitting around domestic rugby union from New Zealand.

Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly interested in signing Chad Townsend

I can't see the point in adding him to the squad, unless he's a replacement for Sezer or Wighton - who would need to move on.

If the Sharks pay a bit of freight, the Raiders could get a (bit) better player and a reduction of the cap to be spent elsewhere.
