Re: Canberra Raiders re-sign Sam Williams on two year deal

Thanks GE. I did not know Westcott had departed. Where did he go? I thought he showed a lot of potential. Ronny P says he’s signed with the Roosters/North Sydney Bears. No announcement yet... but he’s over age now... and the Raiders didn’t retain him. Thats correct. There have been some quality pla...

Re: 2020 Canberra Raiders squad as at 1 November

Subloo didn’t play finals because he was injured. Would have easily played under 20s finals if he was fit. I think he has a bit more potential upside than Westcott. If Westcott doesn’t get a shot at NRL/NSW Cup he will be a superstar in local footy somewhere for the next 10 years but I am not sure ...

Re: 2020 Canberra Raiders squad as at 1 November

No Timoko? Hopefully he is still with the club. I thought Luke Bateman was going as well. Missed the mark with half of the development players. Timoko is a no brainer but he must be the highest paid 20’s player in the comp and get a rookie next year surely being a year young. Medlyn well deserved. ...

Anyone else not slightly concerned Bennett selected Jackson Hastings hb in front of George? Or does George have an injury I'm not aware of?
I'd say it's to do with Hastings being a halfback and Williams a five-eighth honestly./

Re: Raiders fight off rivals to pinch electric sprint champ Xavier Savage from the Roosters

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...

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

If Wighton's asking price is a million, I'm happy to see him move on. Do you think the club would possibly get more value out of any 2 players we could get for 1.12 million compared to Jack Wighton and a minimum wage squad filler?

That only gets you so far until everyone works out that the so called “pathway” doesn’t exist like other clubs with there own reserve grade. Then try and attract/ purchase the best juniors! You become a dumping ground for second stringers

Re: Canberra Raiders sign Peter Sterling Medallist Adrian Trevilyan

Great move. The big question mark at this club is who will take the reigns off Hodgson in 3-4 years time. Developing a good hooker under his wing is by far our biggest priority in the next year or two. Should have been Paterson. He was in front of Starling on skill. Sent from my iPhone using The Gr...
