Re: Jack Wighton confirms switch to five eighth

I may seem negative to some but what I can't fathom, and it's been going on with Raiders fans for years, is why you all (bar a few) choose to drink the kool aid each and every year and believe Stuart has defied the definition of insanity and can actually continue to do the same thing over and over a...

I'm confident the coach knows what he's doing, trials don't mean anything, all Sezer and Wighton need now is time on the field together in the halves.
You are confident Stuart knows what he is doing based on the fact we have one winning season in five with Stuart as head coach? He's EDIT!

Could it be Wighton to the Dragons as his salary wouldn't be as high as the 940k Norman is on and not likely to reduce if asked?

I think we are bottom three material. If we make the eight it will be a miracle in the true sense of the word. I think the Titans will get us in round one.

Re: Raiders are the Huddersfield of the NRL

A transfer fee should only apply if the player in question is a junior and has played less than x amount of games. I'd suggest <50 so the risk rests with the team wanting the player. If Brisbane wanted to stump up $1 million for Milford, we are fairly compensated for the cost of his development and ...

I thought Sezer was average against the Sharks. Still playing too much before the line and too structured. He needs to play what's in front of him and take the line on more. He wasn't bad but it certainly wasn't his best game in recent times. The forwards won us this battle and quite comfortably. Pa...

Re: Ricky Stuart extended to end 2020 as Canberra Raiders co

One likely finals campaign in four season tells me he hasn't earned an extension. If it takes a 25% record of making the finals to earn an extension, then the club (and fans) are setting the bar pretty low.

We should have waited until the season was over before considering a new deal.
