Re: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart signs four-year contract extension

Why don't you look up our ladder position when Ricky got his 2022 extension. That will give you a clue. Hint: they announced it in July 2022. For this extension, someone also posted the following: "164 points let in the last five games... 32.8 a game.... 76 points scored... 15.2 a game...During...

Re: 2024 Round 13 v Dolphins: Teams and Previews

Anyone else concerned by Ata’s output this season? Im all for giving him more first grade experience but has been outplayed (at least statistically) by all other props. Smithies is another one. His first receiver pass is so slow and obvious and has been the subject of a few (and near) intercepts th...

Otherwise, if anyone in the backline gets injured, NSW will be severely handicapped.
Expect him to come in for Hudson.

Don't need Hudson when there's already Ola who is a much better player.

Re: 2024 Canberra Raiders Dally M votes

Their bench forwards were really the difference. Leniu and May were superb, so was Whyte. They were making 55 to 65 metres on every set up to the 5th tackle. JWH had a quiet game in comparison. So did Collins. You have to give it to Robinson with his specially devised tactic of playing Radley as an ...

Tough game against a quality team who are in great form at the moment.

The Board doesn't demand performance as a KPI. As a result fans suffer. It's great to re-appoint your friends w/o being challenged by shareholders.

Stuart is not the person to lead this club to a premiership. He's so arrogant and refuses to change. He's egotistical. And he's not elite.

There was 2 v 2 on there. Kris didn't do his job.

His attack is uninspiring as well

But Roosters were offside all the previous set, we didn't get a penalty. Young gives them 6 again
