Re: Joey Leilua has successful surgery, but out for the season

Let me start by saying I honestly believe BJ to be easily top 5 center in the game for years.
But if BJ is on the rumoured $800k as a strike centre, which is entirely possible, then some tough decisions need to be made over the next 12 months if Cotric kills it.

Re: 2019 Rd 10 V Rabbitohs: Game Day

I don’t think it should be accepted by the NRL that Hodgson should have stayed on the field. Not a good precedent to set IMO

Re: 2019 Rd 10 V Rabbitohs: Game Day

I honestly have no idea how people have Tarps in the middle and Bateman on the edge. Bateman has proven he plays just as well up the guts and Tapine is CLEARLY an edge player. I disagree. Tapine has played well on an edge, no doubt. But I feel Bateman has been better in attack and defence on an edg...

Re: Jack Wighton confirms switch to five eighth

Interesting that there is only a 0.6% between Williams and Croker in defensive efficiency, yet you think Williams is such a poor defender he needs to be punted from first grade immediately based on his defensive stats. Defensive efficiency is simply : Tackles / Missed tackles. It simply serves to s...

Re: Williams or Sezer

What are we even doing here?
Sam is a giant red flag in the defensive line, and any half worth their salt works a play to isolate him for excellent results. Cleary and Maloney weren’t able to do it so we got a week off last week.
I’ve been through enough of this with Austin. I cannit take anymah

Re: Canberra Raiders reportedly settle three year deal for George Williams

I'm pretty sure you're describing Sam Williams to a tee. Great clubman. Well liked by team. Can pinch hit the NRL for 1-3 weeks when needed but other than that not NRL standard. From the area so you dont' have to pay overs. No other club wants him as their starting half, no real competition to drive...

He doesn't struggle with ESL. He is a marque player, international and grand final winning half.

Woodgers, what a lot of us are advocating is not compiling stats on Sam. It's that Sam probably shouldnt be in this game because of his already proven defensive problems. Up against Kikau, it's possible Sam loses us this game. Sezer is a much stronger defender. Sam just hasn't proven himself a decen...

Re: Williams or Sezer

After that Manly game.
Sam Williams now averages 1 ‘Try cause’ per game, which is the highest in our team by double. He also averages 1.6 ‘Line break causes’, which is the highest in our team by double.

I wonder if Kikau will see much ball on Saturday.

Canberra signed him on first grade half money for 3 years, and clearly we are going to tap him on the shoulder before next season, so naturally we are going to take the opportunity to release him. It's all well and good to say we are keeping him for the year in reggies as the backup, but Sezer is ju...

Williams defence got shown up today, no one around him trusts him and for good reason. That causes problems.

There was not enough urgency and commitment to defence today. A message needs to be sent.

If TPJ isn’t on a million next contract it will be close to it. Sure he can be a bit lazy in defence, and can sometimes push the pass a bit, but at his young age he can learn to improve both of those things. It would be a punt to sign him on huge money, but every time you sign someone at that large ...

International footy has been excellent for 2 years. The rise of England and tier 2 nations has been great.
England beating Australia would do wonders for international games, but also for Rugby League as a sport. So that’s easy to get around.

Re: Williams or Sezer

I think it’s safe to say now that we overrated Sezer before he came here.
Which is easy to do, how many ppl are watching 80 mins of Titans games closely for 20+ rounds..
No one watched him as closely at the Titans as they have while he’s here.
I think he’s always been this.

You've got to give credit to Ricky for the way he is rotating that bench with young blokes. Our depth, and the quality of that depth is going to improve by giving them all a taste, and healthy competition to prove themselves.
