Yep, he would've made 150 meters and was the best forward with the ball when they utterly dominated us.

I reckon everything Gus says is part of some sort of 4D chess move so you can't take his comments at face value.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

I was only half serious but it's not that simple because of backloading and front loading plus all of the loopholes. We seem to be the only club incapable of finding extra money to get these players when it's needed. Even in this case, it's 400k year one which would be covered by Lui & Abbey, and w...

Eels are apparently trying to sign George Burgess before kick off. Maybe we can offload Lui and Abbey quickly and the Pommy blokes can get in his ear? Not taking full freight on his contract for the first year then 700k / year after (to match the eels). That's too much for Gurgess. 600k a season av...

I would've preferred Boyd to stay over Paulo. The latter just can't defend for 30 minutes without getting lazy at marker, Boyd was much better in that regard.

Not sure how anyone can be optimistic about this year tbh. How's our squad any stronger than last year? Agree losing Paulo & Boyd is a godsend. Never rated either. Still look very thin up front though. Reality is a 32 yr old journeyman will most likely be 1 of our starting props. No one really know...

I’d take Kasiano. One 20 minute stint covering either side of halftime is all we need. Low money replacement for Boyd and Paulo.
I think if we are saying our strategy is mobility it doesn't make sense to replace those two.

Re: So I've thought about it, and I'm prepared to give Stuart the benefit of the doubt to start 2019

I’m very concerned about the halves combo. Wighton’s a victim of his overall talent and ability to competently play almost anywhere, but he has only really looked world class at Centre, which we continue to ignore. His first stint at 5/8th was a fail. I can’t get excited about his second one coming...

If you look at their recruiting I think the idea Bellamy gets a lot out of average & unknown players is a bit of myth. Our record would be better in that regard.

Maybe he is getting FPNd. It would be pretty odd to give him a decent 3 year deal and drop him/ship him off a few months later though.

Well there you go. Lots of players who can't possibly play first grade. Hopefully if they are used it's as a unit and they don't come heavily into the first grade rotation.
In the video from the article they're looking to get 60mins out of the strongest squad.
