When all the details came out I was obviously then filthy on what the cops did under the circumstances. After watching Todd ...

Anyway, I was a bit disappointed when Mitch Barnett left a few seasons ago, but I reckon Young has a higher ceiling than Barnett, is just as versatile and is now less prone to brain explosions. Good outcome. Yeah, I was disappointed too though a bit of that was to do with keeping Bateman. At the ti...

Re: Canberra Raiders announce Canberra Milk as new major sponsor for 2021

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

Friend was only just hanging in there before both Verrills and Radley got injured.

I think Soliola might miss out here. Sutton looked good and I reckon James played himself into a bench role.

I'd probably be starting Lui or Guler with Papa. I also thought HSS looked better than Kris on the whole, but happy either way if Croker's not fit.
