Rapana wants to stay with Raiders

As captain, sit down all the players and ask them if they want to win premierships or more money.

If they want premierships, tell them to all pull their heads in and take what’s on offer and not push the club to amounts they can’t afford

Re: 2019 Highs and Lows: Worst loss

Yes, I concur the low point was losing the grand final. Probably the lowest point was Tedesco running into score the winner.

Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

I’m confident about Bateman staying not so much Wighton. Some of the bottom 8 teams have a bit in reserve available in the cap which worries me. They could go big and with the amount of international players in our team, our cap might be too tight to match an aggressive offer. I’m confident Jack wil...

Re: Canberra Raiders prepared to let grand final centre Joey Leilua walk

I hope we're not picking up more than $100k of his salary...but I guess it all comes down to what the ultimate cost and opportunities are with other players.

Yeah I think his brother is there.

I think the Dragons will perform much better next year. They signed Shane Flanagan as assistant coach but he will be basically running the show. They were also quite disrupted with the off field stuff ie. Jack De Berlin saga this year

Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

I think Croker needs to be added to that list with Sezer and Rapana at some point, whether that's now or next season, as much as his staunch supporters don't want to hear it. That's three players easily identified who are on decent coin, yet could be replaced without much effect. We've done this al...

Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

Jack is a great player but he isn’t the most important cog in the green machine. I’d have Papa, Hodgo, and Bateman ahead of him in terms of priority signing/key players. The $1m players are the most important number 1 players at a club - Taumololo, Cronk, DCE. In terms of value for another club Jac...

I think the following players would be potential to walk out on there current deal to come to Canberra to win a premiership

Shaun Johnson
Adam Reynolds
Anthony Milford
Mitchell Pearce
Cody Walker

Almost all good halves who crave a premiership would become available if Jack left IMO

Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

I'm not sure that's what he's on - it's what the extension option was, and I think it was a raise on what he's currently on. I'm pretty sure the club has been roundly bagged over the past few seasons for the type of money they were paying him to play fullback. Those were the numbers bandied around....

DFJ said earlier this year that he wanted to assure Raiders fans that he was spending the entire salary cap. Since then we have signed Gwilliams.

And here we go, Raiders won’t make another grand final Beyond 2020+ now for quite a few years.

Greed takes over as always. Players won’t sacrifice to stay together to win premierships instead would prefer to be paid more and be in losing teams.

thanks for the reply. i'm surprised there is no cap at all.

Re: Canberra Raiders' Aidan Sezer again linked to Huddersfield Giants

Williams needs to be re-signed. He’s the best back up half in the NRL. Surely if Sezer gets an offer from the Broncos or Bulldogs, he takes it even if it is a little less money. His value will drop dramatically if he spends the whole season at Mounties. We need to keep one of Sezer or Williams at l...

As dangerous as BJ can be, he's got a lot of mistakes and on-field discipline issues that come with him.

My decision is more based on Cotric or BJ in centre for 2020. I give Cotric the edge as he has more discipline and can break tackles as good as BJ.

Cotric is wasted staying on the wing another season. He needs to get the ball more
