Re: Ricky Stuart says he’ll never again coach against the Canberra Raiders

I also will never coach an NRL team against the Raiders, and for the same reason that Ricky won't.

I can only see the same reports as everyone else but apparently police set up a cordon. Individual police then breached that cordon to find their own kids. Other police prevented other parents from doing the same, including by tasering them.

With the small l inner city mob decimated, the Libs are already far to the right of where they were before the election.

The Nats, who have come through this unscathed, will potentially be a stronger pull to the right, too.
