Re: Three former Raiders nominated for NRL Hall of Fame

Hard to believe Terry Randall doesn’t deserve a spot.
Multiple grand final wins, NSW and Australian appearances.
And he exemplified an era when staunch toughness was an accepted part of the game.
But I won’t hold my breath as these gongs are used to sanitise history.

Re: Wagga to host Canberra Raiders NRL game in 2019 under Wagga City Council deal

By my estimation, reducing games from 12 to 11 without changing the price, represents something like an effective 9-10 percent price rise in one year. They may be reducing Canberra Stadium games but they aren’t reducing home games. Maybe you will get free admission into Wagga cause you’re a member ...

It was a great semi. And tbh in the recent past a game with injuries,dubious penalties and relentless physicality would have been enough for us at the 50 minute mark. We played tough last night.

Re: 2015 in Review - Shaun Fensom

Thurston would get a 10.

But halfbacks will always score higher than work rate back rowers in these kind of ratings.
Sam Williams will probably score more I'd guess.

Re: 2015 in Review - Shaun Fensom

Trouble with stats are they only tell part of the picture. I see Fensom being involved in 2 out of 6 in defence. I see him taking the second or third hit up in offence. Usually the dirty work 20 to 30 metres out from the raiders line.theres no way he gets a green light to pass in that situation. He ...

Re: Fensom

Fensom is the only guy on our team who can actually work a player on the ground and can effectively slow the play the ball. I'm going to argue that other teams might have 4 or 5 guys who can do the same thing, therefor are penalized less due to other players copping the penalties to their names. Fe...
