Bateman should be a shoe in. Papa and maybe Wighton chances in their positions. I wouldn’t rule Hodgson out for Hooker.
Hodgson won’t get hooker. Either Smith or Cook. Probably Cook cause I think they count Origin.

Bateman a chance. Papalli should be the shoe in for mine.

Not sure why the Junior Kiwis are not playing the Junior Kangaroos this year.

Junior Roos are playing France (I assume their senior team) before the test match in Wollongong on October 25.

Re: 2019 Canberra Raiders Jersey Flegg

The comment that the last game against the Roosters was more decisive is not quite correct. We actually led comfortably 16-6 at half time before getting run over. Final score was 28-16. Their full back Baker was superb but it was their forwards who smashed us and a couple of them don’t appear to hav...

Re: Ata Hingano, Royce Hunt and Brad Abbey to depart Raiders at season's end

I think Hingano was pretty Unfortunate. Got hurt at the wrong time and we haven’t had a lot of injuries in the halves the past couple of years. We needed him at hooker last year and then coming on to the wing in that game against Manly was never going to work. Abbey I thought looked pretty good last...
