Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

No part of his game is suited to centre at all imo.

Well they won’t be giving Cook a ‘breather’ to give a lock a crack at hooker.

Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly settle three year deal for George Williams

I’d imagine Gildart has fans in the NRL but I’d say they’re just guessing it’s Canberra given our English recruitment of late.

Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly settle three year deal for George Williams

I wouldn’t be surprised to now see this happen a lot earlier than expected. Williams is phoning it in for Wigan and they are absolutely horrendous. They’ll most likely get absolutely spanked this weekend by Warrington seeing them maybe drop down to 9th out of 12 teams. 3 or 4 tries went in through ...

Re: NSW Origin team

Yeah I think it will be 1 of Murray and Radley. Going on Fittlers comments and Radley being forced into dummy half I think it will be Murray.

Re: QLD Origin team

I don’t think Granville deserves it at all but I think that’s what will happen. I don’t think Hunt is capable of playing 80 up the guts and I can’t see McGuire playing any dummy half coming back from injury. Qld’s Middle forwards outside of McGuire, Papalii and Napa are too weak to forfeit McGuire’s...

Re: Queensland Origin team

That is close but I think we’ll see Granville to start at hooker with Hunt playing 50 mins or so from bench. The last 2 reserves will be Cooper or Hess as the backrower and Wallace/Glasby as the middle imo. Fifita probably would be a better pick than the cows backrowers though.

I don’t know the answer to this long term but I think I’d like Tapine in the middle for the origin period where Papalii is either missing or carrying a heavier workload. Bench is perfect first week and depending how he goes he might be straight in for Papalii the week after which will be against a N...

It's nothing like the Lui talk. It's a discussion on all players full strength and full fitness. I also don't think it's true that clubs aren't running a bench utility.

I’m trying not to be critical of the coaching this year and I’m enjoying the games because of it. But picking a mediocre at best 20 year old reserve grade centre and playing him at lock for the last 10 when behind is beyond reaching.
