He'll get in one of those extended camps for future prospects for sure. Talent is unreal i know people where impressed with Galvin, but ill take our chances with Stranger danger He's got more pace than Galvin, and loves to take on defenders one on one.

Another outstanding win. So many green shoots. We continue to over achieve. We're bringing through the next generation and we're winning games. How about that dogs recruitment? - Kikau, Crichton, Burton, Mahoney. 2.5 million a season in those 4. Still can't beat us. 9 straight against the dogs with ...

Re: Weekes

Could build a career at fullback. I thought in pre-season he was a fullback. But as I’ve watched he’s probably more of a fullback right now. With a couple years of development he could lift his defence and confidence to challenge for spots in the halves. He kicks confidently. Once we get Sanders an...

Re: 2024 Round 11 v Bulldogs: Fans' Choice Player of the Year

3 - Strange
2 - Young
1 - Weekes

Future is bright.

Young just earned an origin jumper. Speaking of origin, it's only a matter of time for Strange. He is already a better player than Wighton and Burton - he hasn't had a bad game all year. Outstanding at any age, let alone as a 19 year old.

Good call IBG. I thought his defence was really good tonight. Good combination with Timoko and EW on a very potent dogs edge. Didn't overplay his hand either. Well done Kaeo.

His next job is to win a premiership. If it doesn't happen by 2027-2028 I think he should go. However, what he has achieved with the Raiders is massive.

Dumb question - I think it's the most relevant question when you sack someone - do you have someone better to replace them with? If the answer is no, why change?

Raiders will never do better than Ricky as the coach. It's his job as long as he wants it.

Next man up will likely be Justin Giteau when Rick feels like st...
