Re: Corey Harawira-Naera reportedly on the Raiders radar

It's impossible to pass judgement on CHN unless you know exactly what happened.

Okunbor's situation is a bit more cut and dried. I'm shocked his appeal was successful.

Re: Corey Harawira-Naera reportedly on the Raiders radar

We've certainly got the means to look at him for next season. One of the better options on the market and would certainly help if he's already available for the remainder of this season.

Re: Ennis - Sign Billy Walters

Interesting vote of confidence in Havili and Starling from Ennis. On a related topic, I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or not, but Hodgo's performance out of dummy half has been wayward during the period that Ennis has not been able to work with the squad at training. It would be good for Stuart t...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

No to Peats... I am happy with the 9 being shared with Havili and Starling (under the circumstances). As posted by others I think we can turn the Hodgson loss into a positive. Hodgo was overplaying his hand, kicking the ball away on the 3rd/4th tackle when we were rolling and limiting our halves ti...

Re: Hodgson suffers suspected ACL tear

Starling could kill it out there with these ruck interpretations.

I think the combo of him and Havili means our opposition will have no idea what's coming.

Re: Canberra Raiders receive representative injury allowance for John Bateman

I'm looking forward to having him back and contributing to a team that's hopefully on its way to the finals. He will be very keen to prove his worth.

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

The loss of Hodgson is huge, no doubt about it, but it will force our halves and middles to step up and take control.

I'm OK with that. It will be a good test for the boys. I don't think our season is over at all.

Re: 2020 Rd 9 V Storm: Game Day

3 tries apiece. 2 of theirs were lucky, and don't get me started on that ridiculous penalty goal.

We were better than them. We nailed them in the forwards.

We also looked better in attack without Hodgson.

Huge game from the boys. The refereeing was a disgrace.

Yep, mentioned before that I'd definitely look at Oates as a replacement for Bateman next season if he gets squeezed out of Brisbane, but there is no chance he's available to help us this season.

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

Seems unlikely, but I'd take a mobile middle like Fenno for sure.

I think he'd be quite effective if not expected to make 50 tackles a game.

Then again, I never fully understood the vitriol against him. I'd be very happy to see Vaughan back too, but that seems even less likely!
