Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Fans’ Choice Player of the Year

Watching the highlights and noticing a few good link passes from Lui (including for one of the tries).

Good to see him earning some points for his efforts last night.

Guys, i know Hodgson was playing poorly and i know we kind of looked good with Havilii there... but dont fall for this trap. Don't be a prisioner of the moment.

2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

The Lui penalty for the hit off the ball happens all the time In every game without the ref calling a penalty.

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

The officials were even worse than CNK tonight.

I was dumbfounded by calls they did make and more so calls they didn’t make.

Storm came out to disrupt the ruck and got away with it.

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

I know they’ve made some errors, but I’ve been really impressed with the line speed, attitude and power of our forwards. They haven’t left anything in the tank. Which hasn’t always been the case for our forwards.

Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly offer Nick Cotric five-year deal

Cotric is in the early stages of his career. What kind of player manager isn’t focused on his development as a player, but worried about him being paid enough.

This has dragged on for too long. Like Bateman, I think it has effected our season a bit.

Depth is an obvious issue, but remember how far we went with Clay Priest playing regular minutes in 2016. Whatever happened to Priest? He was pretty good for us. I think he went to the Dogs, but haven't seen or heard of him again. Either his form tanked after he left us or he got injured repeatedly...
