Hi GH - it's been a while. Friday will be the first home game I've missed all year. Not coincidentally, it is also the due date for the birth of my first child. After we got the positive some 9 months ago, and we did the maths, I joked to my wife that - of course - this will be the year that the Ra...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2019

A friend of mine who is very dialled into the Panthers Organisation says that they are looking at one of Masters, Aitken and Scott for next season. My preference would be to keep BJ, but I wouldn't be against Scott or Masters, providing we increase our cap space if we had to let BJ leave. Hahaha I ...

Re: Ata Hingano, Royce Hunt and Brad Abbey to depart Raiders at season's end

I wish them all well and hope they find opportunity elsewhere. Every Club has to rotate the marginal players if they don't see potential FGers. In professional sport not everyone can get a prize.
