Re: Ryan James set to sign with Raiders

I reckon scott was a good signing. It hasnt played out the way we wanted but at the time he was exactly what we needed. A young bloke who had an impressive reputation as a tough, defensive centre.. hindsight is a wonderful thing Exactly. You'd sign him again, I reckon. If either James or CHN can se...

Re: Corey Harawira-Naera set to join Raiders to end 2022

Given how often we've given up quality players, I can sympathise with the anger over there. It's nice that things are going our way for once, but that can change and I won't be enjoying the salt too much.

Re: Cotric set to head to Bulldogs on three year deal worth $650,000 a season

He's 6' 2", 90 kg, and 22 years old. An off-season in the gym and on the chicken, eggs and rice will probably make a big difference.

Re: Cotric set to head to Bulldogs on three year deal worth $650,000 a season

Unpopular opinion but I actually rated him at Storm and thought he was impressive during his time in first grade. Have a look at his highlights on JBP Sports Highlights Facebook page if you get a chance - he has a massive fend and could easily break a tackle. He only played 40 odd games at the time...

Re: Cotric set to head to Bulldogs on three year deal worth $650,000 a season

Very disappointing, hate to lose a local Canberra junior. The Raiders are doing the right thing, making sure that we don't tie up too much cash in positions like wing or centre these days. It is what successful clubs do. I also don't think his form warrants that sort of money. He was truly outstand...
