Re: Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad signs two year deal with Canberra Raiders

The sooner we lock him up to an extension, the better I’ll sleep. His stats are off the chart for a first year young fullback. Not to mention his excellent positioning. Anyone know if he actively marshals the defence from the back? against the panthers one of the forwards was a but late to get to t...

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

From the video look exclusively left side....there is barely no attack at all down the right edge.

How having 2 exclusively left side players will help in team balance has me scratching my head.

Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Game Day

The thing that stood our for me in that game, and what has also been rammed home is that we only play one side of the field. 2 great attacking weapons in Bateman and Rapana on the right side of the field hardly saw any quality ball all night. We need to fix our attack to play both left and right sid...

Re: 2019 Rd 13 V Tigers: Game Day

The most pleasing thing for me was that our attack still struggled. Apart from the last 5 minutes of the 1st half where Sezer capitalised on a tigers over chase and Bateman did the same, I felt our attack was one dimensional and clunky. The 2nd half points we scored were off the back of tremendous d...

Settle down guys, we just took a very good team all the **** way missing Beej, Raps, JB and Tapine.
That was a good hard game, won in the margins.
completely agree, we didn't have the attacking edge we needed....but considering who is on the sideline a fantastic effort.

and lets face it, defence has improved over the last few years as they generally lay a hand on them before they score nowadays.

About to sign an extension. With all the speculation around other coach movements since Griffin got sacked the board have got on the front foot to make sure nobody poaches him.
