Re: Canberra Raiders sign Wigan Warriors half George Williams on three year deal

Yeah, the overreactions to his slow start to the year have proven to be just that. He is a really quality player from what I can see, there are not many NRL halves I would take before him given what's available. The only query left would be his defense at NRL level. Agreed. And I only saw the last ...

Re: 2019 NRL Finals Week 2 - Teams and Game Day

Would those saying Jake T. deserved his binning also be of the mindset that Suli deserved a binning for his late shot on Croker in the first half last week?

One incident was significantly worse than the other, will let you decide which is which.

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

I will be genuinely disappointed if we don't have Joey on the roster next season. I understand the clubs position if we don't retain him after 2020 but he is contracted for next year and I hope we hold him to that.

Or they might swap any of Bateman, Papalii or CNK - they would all be worthy winners.

Re: Hudson Young referred straight to judiciary

8 weeks is fair in my opinion. I actually don't think he gouged Pompey but he had no right going back for that second crack, especially considering his history. I still can't believe that McGuire only copped fines earlier this year though. I believe the Munster one was as bad as the Burgess/Farah one.

The Fox Sports article. $330K x 5 years (life of his contracts) = $1.65m. Minus $260K (reportedly on $130K for this year and next) = $1.39m. Divided by 3 = a tick over $463K.

I don't think the club is taking Warriors lightly at all. The resting of Nicoll-Klokstad, Rapana, Soliola and Bateman simply tells me they have a legitimate injury/niggle that resting will give them a better chance to be 100% for Week 1 of the Finals.
