Re: 2022 NRL Round 23: Teams and Game Day

Outside of the Raiders winning each remaining game. The Roosters Souths final round game is likely to be key in the Raiders chances of making the 8.

That was a good loss for us by the Bunnies.

Geez there’s some inconsistency in how long they let the clock run down on a conversion kick.

Yep. Guessing we’re paying $400-450k of that.

Which may or may not be about $50k too much.

Cotric certainly needs to work on his game this offseason and develop some secondary skills.

It’s a sad state of affairs when if given the forced option, I’d take David Fifita at $1 million over Moses Mbye at $900k.

That’s the greatest Moses miracle in 2000 years.

Lodge and Pengai jr at $900k, no wonder Broncos were struggling when they had these two on their books.
