Preparing for 2019

I agree Zim, he needs to bulk up over the off season but not lose his agility if he is to play middle

Preparing for 2019

Tapine won’t go to the middle. J. Bateman will. Sent from my iPhone using The Greenhouse mobile app powered by Tapatalk It’s interesting. I can’t see Bateman starting next year and it’s hard to see him playing in the middle as he is playing a lot of centre at the moment. I don’t know where he will ...

Raiders player signing speculation 2018

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. I've been critical of his positioning at the back for a while but cannot doubt his defense or running game... Stuart tried Wigjton at half in hi...

The positive out of today is Guler got on the field early and got a good stint. If only Murchie was offered the same on his debut

Re: Trent Barrett headed to the Raiders?

I’m just glad that some pressure is being applied. Speculation is good, puts Stuart under pressure and over time he will start to mistrust the board. This will help with the push to push him out

Well, the podcast from Ricky Stuart today said he was thinking of Wighton at No. 1 or 6 for next year. Cotric at wing or centre only. Not asked about Rapana at fullback.... IMO... Brad Abbey is unable to fill the fullback role at NRL level. So that leaves Rapana as the option there. I think the Cot...

One finals appearance in the last five years.

Re: 2018 Rd 23 V Roosters: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I'm expecting Cotric to play fullback with Oldfield on the wing. Emre will probably sit on the pine for 80 minutes or given 5 minutes to go with the side 60-44 down Nope Ricky is penalizing Cotric for his couple of errors last week at fullback.

We will all be optimistic that there will be changes come Tuesday afternoon, then at 4:01pm we will see the same team and then spiral into a depressed state of anger and disappointment and take it out on the GH from 4:02pm until game time.

Well it would be nice to know what’s taking up all our cap if we are at the limit like Don indicates. At least knowing the top 30 gives us some knowledge who is on the books. I have no doubt we are paying for Kurt Baptiste over at the roosters
