Not sure Sutton has a future here. Hasn’t quite made the grade...
I don't get it, he was showing some great potential in the middle of last year.
I agree with Greeneyed. I'm still baffled Lui was selected ahead of him during the Finals last year.

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman has permission to have negotiations with other clubs

I really hope he stays but not looking good. I reckon we could find some fans to help the club top him up with a TPA. I'll put in $1000.

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman has permission to have negotiations with other clubs

This is really disappointing. I understand his desire to make every $ he can from his career but if we have offered to re-negotiate and extend with him declining he must not really want to be at our club. Which really hurts.

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman staying with Canberra Raiders

How can Fox get rid of an Andy Raymond yet keep James Hooper. Can't be due to his knowledge, he legitimately has no idea about Rugby League - you can tell when he offers opinions.

Re: Jordan Rapana re-joins Canberra Raiders for 2020 on short-term deal

Great news!

I think he will play the Oldfield role when he comes back. At full fitness I am very interested to see what we do with him. If he stays on the bench he will terrorise teams through the middle late in halves.

Re: Raiders half Aidan Sezer joins Huddersfield Giants on two year deal

Aidan Sezer was an absolute champ every time I spoke to him. He was a nice person, humble, honest, open with a Raiders supporter. He did a lot for our club, including help our team to its fifth Grand Final appearance. I've never failed to be impressed by him as a person. Good guy. 6th GF Appearance.
