Re: Michael Ennis joins Canberra Raiders as coaching consultant

I don't mind the VC BUT it should take place after both teams are on the field. I seriously don't understand why the Raiders never gets to witness it on the field. I think it would pump them up!

Re: Our attack

The thing is last year i noticed that we were going 80 -100m most sets but so we're our opposition, our defence needs to improve so they only go 50m a set. And if we grind out then we would get the biscuits Without at least 1 big forward, I think are going to get dominated in the ruck. Look at the ...

I haven't seen anything from Murchie in either ISP or NRL that shows him to be exceptional. Looks pretty bog average to me. I just don't see him progressing into the 17 at all this year.

I would get rid of Murchie to keep the redhead any day of the week.

Agreed - Tapine had his best season in the 2nd row. Wouldn't move him at all. I also think the best setup is for Whitehead to be starting lock with Bateman in the other 2nd row spot.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

We should be hitting Dufty up hard now that Norman has moved to the Dragons. A spine like this is pretty solid:

1. Dufty
6. Wighton
7. Sezer
9. Hodgo

Now that Rapana is injured the chances of Wighton to 6 now look slim as I don't want Abbey anywhere near first grade.
