The abillity was there but Jensen had the worst hands of any Raiders player I remember. Once he fixed that at the Cows he was great.
What..... worse than Marshall Chalk??
Chalk’s hands were ok until the try line was beckoning.

Re: The most underrated Raiders of all time

Of all the mentions so far I lost agree with Michael Hodgson and Adam Mogg. Few players ill mention and for different reasons are: Phil Graham. By his own coaching staff at least. 2003 was a year where we looked a genuine surprising chance for much of the season before Penrith came home late. And co...

Re: The Cricket Thread

Started watching “The Test” on Amazon Prime. 2 episodes in, I’m loving it. Can easily see why Usman has failed to cement a spot in the Test team. All the talent in the world, but he’s mentally unfit.

Re: Underrated XIII: The best NRL players who've never received enough praise

That's a very ordinary attempt at a team. Being white and mediocre makes you under rated apparently. Thompson, Bolton and Croker the only truly under rated players there IMO. Tongue was a dire hooker. Merritt ended up very over rated. Aubusson being under rated has become a bit of a meme. The halves...

Who is the best current non rep NRL player?

Trying to drum up some rugby league talk. Who do you think is the best NRL player who hasn't played rep footy. (I'll call it Origin or Eng/Aus/NZ) We'll all talk our current crop. But considering some who've played ahead of him I think Joel Thompson would be up there. He's a much better player than ...

Lewis is the worst halfback I have ever seen play 20 or more games in the NRL.

He's way ahead of Jeremy Smith now for mine.

Yeah I like what I see from Hoy. Think we'd find it hard to get him here. Simonsson does a lot less talking and organizing in the line compared to CNK.
