Can we just move Ricky on now and commence a rebuild with another coach. I’m happy to go through a rebuild for 3 years knowing we have a better coach.

I would also be happy to move everyone on except Hodgson, Papa, Whitehead & Cotric.

Re: Nail it or fail again - What is the pass mark for the Raiders in 2019?

A top 8 finish with a well disciplined team is a pass for me. If we make the top 8 by winning flukey games, lose games because of brain explosions and still have poor defence, I class that as a fail.

I just can’t believe we haven’t started shifting players yet. Players should have already been moved on to accommodate TPJ. Like seriously, when do we ever get a player of that caliber come to us wanting to play! This board infuriates me.
