Re: Canberra Raiders forward Luke Bateman re-signs on one year deal

Hard to say if I’m happy or unhappy about this without further context. On face value agree with everyone’s comments on here and I would assume he isn’t breaking the bank, but if resigning him reduces the likelihood of locking in other higher priority signatures then maybe it’s not the best outcome....

I’d be nervous if we met Parra in the GF if they knock off Melb and Chooks haha. No way. If we faced Parra in the GF I'd be more confident than ever. Melbourne will knock Parra out, then the Roosters will knock Melbourne out. That's how I see that side of the draw. I'd be surprised if Souths don't ...

Yeah - last year he kicked 33 out of 34 to go at 97.1%. 34 is not a huge number of kicks but still an impressive effort. Make Cleary’s at 87.9% look like a sprayer!

It says we can't afford what were paying him now (read don't want to pay him that) I doubt there's any clubs that would want him at current value or higher, so test the market, find he's not worth what he's on, club has leverage in contract negotiations or he moves on (which on the basis they're so...

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

Could be wrong but reading between the lines I’d suggest the club might be keen to move him on. Surely this wouldn’t be the messaging if they want to keep him?

Parra’s performance against the broncs will keep us off the back page of the Tele for another week and allow us to keep a lid on things. Happy for the media to be chasing Sivo instead of Bateman for at least another week.
