Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly settle three year deal for George Williams

Whatever. BJ came here under similar circumstances. I'll pass judgement on George based on how he performs for us. So when he gets tired of playing for us, or gets homesick, or doesn’t agree with something Stick says... you’ll be happy for him to let 3-4 tries in per week for us?? Do that for 7 or ...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

I think Lui is in the same class as what you could expect from Ese'ese now. Unless it's a elite talent I wouldn't be chasing a prop.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

Saw an article that mentions Ese’ese is potentially available... he’d look very good either starting next to Paps or leading the bench prop rotation. He’s be a great pickup, wasn’t he one of the first Knights buys? He’s be on a few $$$$ He’s been on the outer/fringe first grader this year. They’ve ...

Sezer’s floor and ceiling are both higher than Williams - and that should be all there is to say in regards to who gets the start from here on in. I think Sezer has responded well to his dropping.
