There’s zero chance of moving Wighton to centre and rightly so. Absolute madness to even contemplate it tbh.

Re: John Bateman - Best first season in Raiders history?

Was it Best’s first or second year with us when he played ridiculous footy outside Campese?

Re: Canberra Raiders in the race to sign CJ Mundine

I'm sure the kid is talented, he might even be a nice kid. But his father will come with him and I don't want that absolute stain of a human being anywhere near our club.

Re: 2019 NRL Finals Week 1 - Teams and Game Day

I also feel really sorry for Manly. I know everyone hates them but I’ve never understood why people under 35 or so now hate them. They’re the opposite sort of club to what people hated them for in the 70s/80s. I enjoyed what they did this season almost as much as what we did. Loved Thompson and Siro...

Re: 2019 NRL Finals Week 1 - Teams and Game Day

I believe the Roosters are going to absolutely hand it to the bunnies on Friday. Not only is Keary a massive in but SST was the best front rower in the competition this year when fit and really very seriously elevates their performance. I’m struggling to think of a stronger club side ive seen on pap...

Re: Elliott Whitehead and Ryan Sutton sign two year extensions

Good news on both counts. I’d expect Sutton is not on huge coin, he’s tough and is a pretty good fit in the middle while we still have Papalii, Hors and Tapine imo. On Whitehead; you can make a case that he’s the most under rated player in the league imo. He has serious footy smarts and skill, sniff...

Looking at the positive, I’m of the opinion that at full strength he doesn’t make the 17 anyway and he possibly would’ve if available. I know plenty don’t agree.

Nothing short of playing our best game of the year, or something close to it, will get the job done on Saturday. If we can make it all click, we will have a GF qualifier at home.

Re: 2019 Rd 25 V Warriors: Game Day

So far the difference between Hudson and Redhorse is that Redhorse seems to have learned from his earlier indiscretions. This is why he will be a key part of the finals campaign. There’s a pretty big difference in talent and potential there too imo. Horsburgh will play Origin I reckon. Yep I think ...

His kicking is what it is and I wouldn’t be changing things now. There also aren’t two other centres putting pressure on him this year. I am interested to know why he always comes up two steps ahead of his inside men in defence. Is it to give the impression there is less space on that side? Usually...

Unpopular opinion here. We didn’t play well. Reflecting on that I almost reckon it’s a better situation for the group to learn from than a 2 point win in that situation.
