Re: John Bateman in talks for $3.5m return to Super League

If I was offered a job for double than what I make in Sydney I still wouldn't take it. Sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side. He has a lot of English mates in the Raiders side.....

Re: 2020 Rd 4 V Knights: Teams and Previews

I think if you could depend on not having any injuries (which you never can) our strongest 17 wouldn't include Havilii but I don't know how good our next best hooker in our 17 is, or even who it is, should a half or hooker goes down. If not Havilii and we had Rapa on the bench, I'd put him there. L...

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman has permission to have negotiations with other clubs

Wingers are key players but I don't think we would lose much by having Simmonson and Rapa on the wings. 2nd Row is a very important position in modern league especially when we have the best 2nd rower in the comp. Even releasing players like Soliola should be on the cards seeing his age. He can go ...

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman has permission to have negotiations with other clubs

Ricky already has started to identify that you don't spend exorbitant cash on Wingers/Centres. He got rid of both BJ and Rapa during the off season knowing that you need to spend money on your spine. I'd also add every team needs at least two gun forwards (in our case we have Papa and Bateman).

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman has permission to have negotiations with other clubs

Why the urgency to extend Cotric and not Bateman. Let Cotric go, tbh he hasn't done much since his breakout season in 2017. Last year he only scored 4 tries. Piss weak for a centre/winger. I've heard that he is after 500k which is over inflated. I'd resign Rapa for 2 years (300k)/Oldbeard for two (m...

Re: $7.7m Triple treat: Jarrod Croker and Nick Cotric set to re-sign with Canberra Raiders

I must be the only one not willing to pay 500k for Cotric. He definitely had his worst season (in my opinion - 4 try as a winger is terrible) and everyone seems to pine for him. Had an amazing debut season and hasn't done much since. Oh well, the media loves him so he continues to be picked for coun...

Re: Civic still preferred stadium option for Canberra Raiders

EPIC is the absolute worst option... by a long way. The ACT Government is besotted with a tram line that serves very few people. Mitchell is a far worse location than Bruce. If it can’t be Civic, find a location in Woden or stay at Bruce. Both are far more central. EPIC is in the middle of nothing....
