Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2018

How can we not have cash for TPJ, Boyd left not because we didn't have money but because the Raiders weren't prepared to pay what he was asking. His position hasn't been filled unless I'm missing someone, there's also Paulo. The club just used the “not playing overs” excuse to cover up that they ov...

Re: Preparing for 2019

After watching the Storm last night I have to agree with those that have mentioned Drinkwater. Very, very good prospect. The Storm will likely keep Munster going forward meaning Croft, Drinkwater and Hughes will be battling for two spots. If I'm the Storm I keep Drinkwater and maybe Croft just over...

Raiders player signing speculation 2018

Considering Lui was probably paid around $180k this season, I’d say he was good value. My guess is he is probably on about $320k (plus or minus) for the next three years. You need to sign a Lui to be able to afford a Papalli in your pack. You don’t need a Lui, you need a player of his ilk on next t...

Raiders player signing speculation 2018

TPA’s come down to the corporate network of your CEO, Board and coach. Unfortunately our coach isn’t liked, our CEO has no real network or contacts and the board is to union heavy. That’s why we can’t get TPA’s like the roosters and other clubs.

I suspect that’s all that’s all that’s possible given what’s left in the cap. I agree, the only way to get a good signing is still to trade current players. If TPJ like player or a good half comes available every player on our roster should be reviewed and traded where necessary. However we don’t h...

Re: 2018 Rd 24 V Rabbitohs: Game Day

Didn’t see the game but winning again now just proves it is a mental thing for the team. When the pressure is on either through a close game or purely when we are chasing wins to make the 8 we just aren’t there mentally. Instead is an assistant coach we need physiologists in the team, but Ricky won’...

It's hard not to agree. The Raiders need a top line playmaker to join Hodgson in the spine. The options for halves and fullback... we're short one top player if the Raiders are to challenge for a premiership. I don't think that'll be happening for 2019... I desperately hope I'm wrong.

We know it isn't happening and the coach is contracted to 2020. So what needs to happen is getting the assistant coaching resources in, in 2019, who can help make the difference.

It’s beyond me how Tapine is out due to injury and Murchie isn’t in the side to replace him.

Furthermore Boyd and Paulo who won’t be with us next year continue to be picked!

I reckon Wighton to 5/8 is a good move. Sure he failed last time but he is not the player he was last time. We also have a much more dominant 9 this time.
