Re: Canberra Raiders Team of the Decade

I'm not sure what it says to our recruitment if our candidates for halfback in team of the decade are Sezer and McCrone :doubt:

Re: 2019 Rd 17 V Dragons: Game Day

Actually thought Sezer's kicking game was woeful but had a great running game and did his job in defence. Luckily Hodgo had control of the entire game and we'll need that to continue happening for the rest of the year. And CNK.. Just immense. Impresses me over and over again each week. May have over...

Re: Canberra Raiders Origin chances

Decided not to write this in my emotional disappointment yesterday but alas, still holds true after I've calmed down from the loss. The claim that Croker should play origin is laughable. While he has always been good in attack, his defensive positioning is next to none. And I mean that in a very bad...

I don't think anyone in the team (who can) deserves to be picked for NSW except for maybe Wighton for a bench position. Funny thing is that at the start of the season, I was really hanging onto Cotric getting into the NSW team as my only shimmer hope for anything positive for this season. And while ...

Going to assume that this is a pretty severe case as I haven't heard of surgery being common for bulging discs.

It is really promising when we're playing well below average and still getting some great results. Unlikely to be sustainable though.

Re: 2019 Rd 2 V Storm: Game Day

Well, round 1 was fun.

I see the unstoppable play of pass to forward on last has continued from last season.

Bring on 2020 with a proper half. Fingers crossed we can do it in 2019 without a half.

Re: Canberra Raiders express interest in Kiwi superstar Shaun Johnson

I find it so difficult to rationalise how our cap is distributed to our playing group.

If there was some sort of metric of salary compared to performance for key players... Raiders would have to be heavily on one side of the spectrum.

I made a graph.

Re: Canberra Raiders re-sign Aidan Sezer for two more years

Some of Austins mistakes are so bad they wouldn't count as misses. If you look at other defensive stats he is a much worse defender overall and is right near the top for halves in negative stats, whereas Sezer is middle or near the bottom. Try causes - Austin 0.9, Sezer 0.5 Line break causes - Aust...

Re: Canberra Raiders re-sign Aidan Sezer for two more years

I think some people are a bit mislead when they think Sezer is a better defender than Austin. Austin made some pretty blatant bad reads early this season but as a defender overall, there is almost nothing between them. 2018 stats: Austin 185 tackles (15.4 pg) / 27 missed tackles (2.3 pg) Sezer 221 t...

If the option were to keep one, I would take Austin over Sezer any day of the week. Austin has at least shown his potential at the Raiders in 2015 while Sezer is yet to put more than one/two games together with any consistency. However, as this decision has already been made with Sezer's re-signing ...
