Re: Canberra Raiders looking to re-sign Jordan Rapana

I'd absolutely keep Sam Williams. I love him as a player. He has some really excellent points about his organising and attacking game, that just do it for me. He is the absolute king of NRL 'pinch hitting'. His ability as a player grows the longer he is out of First grade and then drops dramaticall...

Re: Are we premiership contenders?

We lost to Melbourne by 12 (at full strength).

We lost to Easts by 6 (missing BJ and Tapine)

We lost to Souths by 4 (missing BJ and Tapine)

These are not insurmountable results.

When he was at the Sharks, not the Raiders.

Chicka was first selected while at the Roosters but also played games while at the Raiders.

How many of the Wagga crowd became full-time Raiders fans after watching that game on the weekend?
