Yet another game where we get to 20pts and then stop playing football......

Surely the coach needs to address this quickly? There’s almost enough evidence now to suggest a pattern of behaviour here
Have a watch of the press conference.

Re: Ricky Stuart coaching

I'd say it's probably time for the changing of the guard. Stuart has laid the platform. Time for Brett White to step up. Just kidding, can you imagine? Anthony Griffin? I reckon cappy probably gets the gig after stick steps down to take up another role at the end of 2021. Not what I would do but I ...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

I'd take Arrow over Pangai junior all day every day. He's the modern prototype forward that would fit perfectly into the style of play we are developing.

Re: 2019 Rd 17 V Dragons: Game Day

Interesting that Stuart regarded this game as the best one Sezer has played for the club, and the best Hodgo has played this season. Sezer has had a few good games for us in the past, but I'm pretty on board with the coach on both points. Some of the criticism of Sezer during this game was ridiculo...

Re: Cotric and the Judiciary

Regardless of the punishment, I’d imagine the club won’t dispute it. To be honest, they shouldn’t! It would be a bad look and they know it. They’re taking this one on the chin. Whilst not appearing to be intentional, it’s a really bad tackle, and one that the game has had recent negative press from ...

I love Ricky Stuart as a person and player, but he is simply dead wrong about protecting a lead...and it has cost us numerous times in the last few years.

Re: Canberra Raider coach Ricky Stuart on NRL 360

It was a good interview. Only bit I found concerning was when Ricky talked about shifting the game plan at 22-0 to go to grind rather than for 42-0. Now there’s certainly some merit to shifting the game plan when you’ve secured enough points for victory. But the game plan the Raiders have been shif...

There was a period during the game where we weren't completing a set. With errors, tries and penalties we just gave them too large a chunk of time with the ball.

Our defence goes to crap once the offloads start flowing. Second phase play seems to absolutely destroy us while we continue to try for high completions.
