Re: Top 10 Canberra Raiders imports of all time

Schif is top 3 and I would rate him ahead of Hodgson. If you include the year it was cancelled he was 2x Dally M fullback of the year and ran 2nd for overall Dally M during probably the most stacked era for fullbacks. He was also 2 xRaiders Player of the year and if the GH award went back that far ...

Re: Josh Hodgson

I agree that defending isn’t what he is paid the big bucks for. The problem for me is I think better sides then parra might get more success out of working him over to blunt his attack and pick up points. And since his lateral movement in defence is to **** you can’t really hide him on the edges. I...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

We're much fitter and still with only 1 genuine trial. Off season program obviously made the difference. Also consider guys like Boyd and Paulo have been replaced by Bateman and Sutton. Defensive load is more distributed and down sized pack bringing greater mobility for longer periods. There's quit...

Re: Josh Hodgson

His tackle efficiency is low amongst hookers with only Radley worse but it was blown out last weekend with Parra sending him a lot of traffic and nearly half his misses for the year coming from that game. Prior to last weekend he was one of the better 80 minute hookers. His 1:1 tackles and inneffect...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Larger middles like Guler and Hunt who have low defensive mobillity are not going to get a run unless Lui or Papalii go down. They just don't fit the gameplan.

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews

I'd like to see Murchie in for Tapine, with Horsburgh or L.Bateman in for Young who can get some more minutes under his belt for a week. I know people will be against L.Bateman, but I would like to see how he plays now we are playing a style closer to his strengths.

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews

A big body has to come in for Tapine. Either Horsburgh or Hunt imo. And I imagine Stuart will be careful with Young. There’s not much point him playing 5-15 minutes for more than a month because he’ll be out of nick. I think we’ll see Murchie in for him for a bit sooner rather than later. Murchie l...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews

I think getting the Poms who had just won a grand final and the success they had in the recent test series has made a big difference. They along with Sia really lead the team from the front both physically and mentally.

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews

Normally the Broncos have us beaten before we run out. In the end we crumble and they beat us with some regulation second man plays, usually with Boyd starring. You'd hope given the way we are playing that's not going to happen this week.

Re: Josh Hodgson

Yep, I loved it as well. I love our usual style of attacking play but there is nothing more satisfying then seeing us physically and mentally work as a single unit to defeat a team. I haven't seen us do it since Wiki left.

TPJ to Souths if they want him I guess.

I think they also get the 500k they were due to pay him this year, so they can frontload that and have 2m for next year.

Re: Josh Hodgson

The tactic wasn't to not score. It's just they take a lower chance or scoring each play in exchange for wearing their middle down.

And it worked.

Re: 2019 Rd 5 V Eels: Game Day

Great win. My only concern is this physical style will take its toll over the course of the season, so Stuart needs to make a concerted effort rotating the squad. We have some good forwards playing for Mounties (Horsburgh, Guler, Murchie) who can come in and do a job for a couple of weeks, and some...

Re: Williams or Sezer

Williams had 35 possessions, down a bit but plenty of football. He did well with it imo, he stuck to the plan without the clunkiness of Hodgo. Plus his defense got a pass mark which is what matters for him.
