Corey Harawira-Naera reportedly on the Raiders radar

I think it is unfair to raiderskater to dismiss her concerns in the way some posters have. I think people should be more polite to her. Maybe some posters could consider that she has a very valid, and different perspective on it, and not only because she's female. But perhaps that also gives her an...

Not a real indication of each side. Both had a majority of trialists. Gordan Whippy and Ronan Michael were impressive though.

Re: 2019 Canberra Raiders Jersey Flegg

The amazing thing about this is that it will be fourth (Raiders) versus fifth (Rabbitohs). The Rabbitohs beat the Raiders earlier this year... but that was the final game in a four game losing streak for Canberra mid season. Canberra has a great chance of winning and going to NRL Grand Final Day......

I hope the club are seriously looking at retaining as many of this side as possible even if it’s transitioning via Mounties. I get the feeling they are always the last considered.

There is a very good reason Nick Politis ensures he is on any NRL committee that studies the Cap and any related aspects of the game.

We provide far fewer opportunities in Under 20s and NSW Premiership than we used to. And leave it to Mounties to contract players to fill the gaps in those teams.
