Re: Horn blowers

Apparently he lost a bet with someone on the Raiders Board or something. That is what they said on Channel 9. If that's true, it is a terrible call from the club. That is an honour. It shouldn't be the play thing of a bet. Agreed. I can't remember the last name of the person associated with the Rai...

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

To provide a positive comment, I thought Hudson Young was very good off the bench in both attack and defence. I would find it very hard to leave him out at full strength.

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Game Day

The Manly trainer did what the Roosters trainer repeatedly did. That stopping of the game for the Boyle 'injury' was blatant cheating. Just as the Roosters cheated with that tactic 2 weeks ago.

Not sure why that Wighton break wasn't given a try. Seen worse than that awarded. Manly trying to spoil us in the ruck as much as possible. Our guys are staying focused and not losing patience though. Not that we'll ever know but if it was sent up as a Try would it have been overturned? No. Case in...

We really need to keep our heads in this 2nd half. The refereeing is a joke today. Klein is bottom 3, hate when we get him. Give us the chick ref next week - who incidentally is my wife's cousin.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

If we insist on playing Tapine in the middle, then i complete agree with the above. If we get Bateman into lock and roll with him on the edges, i'd hang on to him and let the kids walk instead. Agreed. There are plenty of clubs that would benefit with Tapine in his preferred position at second row....

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Tapine is miles better than Young. Right now, and most likely as a ceiling. Young isn't Mother Teresa- he's struggled to stay on the park for discipline and suspensions himself and is also a noted penalty magnet. But he's red lining his game for far less impact than Tarps has. I'm not sure this arg...

Best possible 17 considering Tapine is out. Best possible 17 either way, IMO. Tapine will be in our top 17 when fit but I can see why some would be getting frustrated with his lack of discipline.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Will Guler and Murchie ‘kick on’ or ‘move on’? I think both will get every chance to kick on. I rate Murchie higher than Guler but might be in the minority there. In reality though, we have gone from looking thin in the forwards to having tremendous depth. Hetherington is a great signing for next y...

Lui has been great. Our 15, 16, 17 in the Finals could be Soliola, Horsburgh, Lui. That is brilliant. Then Young and Havili waiting in the wings. Incredible depth considering Guler and Murchie are only options in case of emergency.
