Re: Matt Timoko re-signs with Canberra Raiders to 2022?

Thought he out performed HSS in the pre-season. HSS was pretty dynamic last year though so maybe a touch of nerves/over thinking with the opportunities on offer. Totally agree. HSS is a great young player but not under pressure. Big raps on him last year but faulted slightly towards the end of the ...

Simonsson and CNK are no slouches. Wighton is fast across the first 40metres too. Not saying I’d keep pace with any of them but comparative to other teams these guys aren’t the quickest. Simonsson is one of the quickest in the NRL https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/05/29/simonsson-leads-the-nrl-top-spee...
