Re: Are we premiership contenders?

I dunno, just seems really sad to me to spend the majority of our best season in twenty years complaining heavily about factors completely out of the team's control. I'm just so glad that Sticky, and by extension the team, no longer focus on junk like this anymore and seem to be solely focused on t...

Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I would be looking to target Brown and Moses on the edges, a lot. This is usually the case against halves of any stature, but a quick shift to an edge will earn us a fast play the ball to come back through the middle, targeting Mahoney. Will be a good thing to try if we are struggling for metres at...

waqa blake picked up by the eels. Kris will be interesting for me, didnt see enough of him in his game to make a call, though size wise he seemed small... well smaller then waqa blake. Blake wont play this week as he needed to be named prior to teamlist Tuesday plus he is still recovering from a gr...

Confident vs the Eels too... they’ve flattered to deceive this year.

Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I would be a bit more confident with oldfield then kris. Oldfield has never let us down. Has anyone seen much of kris in centres in the lower grades? Oldy on the wing - yes. In the centres... well, his contact in defence is very suspect. I like Oldy as a piece in our squad, but would always rather ...

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. For mine, he’s a couple of cuts above Lui, Sia and our young guns (although Horse is on a great trajectory). The old guys are journeymen, the kids unproven. I think w...
