Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

We apparently lost our two young halves from Mounties to other NRL Clubs already. Another great example for Club and team management. First I’ve heard of it. Who?

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.
