Re: 2019 Rd 22 V Storm: Game Day

Wow, the NRL and the ref on the day are very willing to give Cameron Smith the benefit of the doubt. He gets a little rap over the knuckles and a joking comment from the ref, while most other players would be sitting out a game. Now his offence has been watered down to pushing in on the headth his k...

Thank goodness we dont have that muppet Klein behind the whistle. We have the best team possible. The Storm is formidable, but I remember a few wonderful games where our little ‘David’ Green Machine took on the ‘Goliath’ Storm and beat them! We can do it again!! It’s Tuesday - lets have some faith. :)

I liked Ricky’s comment that he was glad they picked experienced refs for this game - hope they do a good job and manage to control the game fairly.

Personally, I think it’s totally irresponsible of a CEO to be urging the fans to behave in such a way. Sure, urge to refs to be fair. But undermining the ability of the refs to manage the game with whistles blowing in all directions is hardly going to help anyone. The Raiders need to take the high g...

Re: 2019 Rd 20 V Warriors: Game Day

Members tickets arrived today. They are for the South Stand behind the posts. Previous years we've been on the lower Western Stand on about the 20m line. A downgrade I reckon.

By the way, for the curious, Croker only needs 92 points to make it to 2000. If we make the GF, he'd need 10 points a game to get it this season. VERY doable especially if he has a big game against the Tigers... Croker needs to save up something for next season. Otherwise what will he aim for? Clea...

Canberra Raiders again have suffered big travel delays heading to Darwin, had to go via Melbourne. Players saying 12 hour delay. Unbelievable!
