Re: Canberra Raiders' Curtis Scott set to go to court

What legal fees is there a dispute over. Would it typically be the DPP (NSW) wanting money to cover their costs? Or would it be Curtis was asking for the DPP (NSW) to cover some or all of his legal fees? Either way I think the hit to his form may end up costing him more contract money overall then ...

Re: What's wrong with us right now?

I don't know what VOA is I would agree that attack vs strong defences is different to weak defences, but it's not unrelated. There's marginal utility in being able to pile on points. But if you're losing games because you can't score (like us v Manly) then there's cause for concern The effectivenes...

Re: What's wrong with us right now?

If you want to use Sports stats to draw any meaningful conclusions it's worth learning how to use them properly and how to statistically apply context. Concepts like VOA and the need to adjust for things like possession for example. The effectiveness of the teams strategy last year was demonstrated ...

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

We had a clear possession advantage with 54% of the football so we should have been able to make more of that. With Hodgo missing we are now without 5 of last years Grand Final pack for the short turnaround grand final replay. Having watched the highlights I am concerned that there is something tak...

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

We're not talking about previous years - we're talking about this year, and we are very much a conservative, boring side. Then why have I read the same argument for 3 years? I can't imagine you have? We were anything but boring or conservative between 2015 and 2018. Lol ok https://thegh.com.au/foru...

Do we even have the capacity to name a 21 man squad next week?
I think we only have 19 fit players. If that's right I believe they can just name two injured players for 20 and 21.

Can Starling possibly start? Is he a big minute hooker?
He didn't play over 30 minutes last year and with no lower grades I doubt he could manage more than 20 minutes defending in the middle, especially given his size.

Looking back to last year we went 3-0 with Havilli / Starling. It included two pretty average performances but it's still a positive sign.

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

The 2016 style relied on massive forwards who's poor mobility in the middle cost us for another two seasons once it was figured out. It's doubtful we could attack that way and defend like last year.

I'm not sure Peats is a big upgrade on Starling when it's a 20 minute stint. Two middles is a must though with Havilii moving.
