Re: 2020 Rd 1 V Tigers: Teams and Previews

Sorry Josh, Isaac Moses has been a blight on rugby league for a long time. The NRL should have banned his company entirely from any dealings with the game given what Moses has done. Yep. Moses is a fraudulent EDIT who has created issues for the game as a whole. Reminds me of the people who say EDIT.

Re: Canberra Raiders young gun Hudson Young set to sign new deal to end 2024

Good for both parties. I think Hudson needs the discipline and structure that Ricky and the Raiders senior players live and breathe. Hudson Young could have disappeared like a thousand other talented NRL players who hit a hurdle, but the club and particularly himself are starting to grow the acorn. ...

Re: Ryan James signs with Raiders

Re: 2020 Rd 1 V Tigers: Teams and Previews

I was also of the opinion they weren’t shoulder charges (in the usual context).

Hors is known as fiery by the refs and commentators, this can often lead to an overreaction to any tackle out of the norm. I remember Tallis, Geyer, Plumb all being penalised for hard tackles that were 100% legal.

New Jersey looked better in game than it does at the store. I do wish the blue band had been a dark green band. Or they were thin blue,white and yellow stripes.

But it still doesn’t stack up against the retro jersey and does look like a training top.

Ramsay might bulk up like Dugan did.

He looks like a junior worth extending his contract in my opinion.

But certainly his debut was overhyped and Valemi added some dollars to the wingers contract.

I just can’t see Cotric becoming the player he could have become at the Bulldogs.

He will be a very good player there and will certainly break tackles and score tries.

I just wonder how he’ll feel if Raiders win a premiership and/or he goes through a finals drought.
