Re: 2022 New halfback?

“I’ve still got something to offer and I’ve still got something to prove to myself,” Sandow told The Daily Telegraph. “I just want that opportunity. A chance, that’s all I want. No club would regret it, no chance." ** “Once I do a full pre-season then it’s game over, I can let my footy do the t...

Thanks Bay53 and others for the information. Very detailed and much appreciated. Looking forward to seeing Schneider play. He's a big bloke - this is Ricky's announcement. https://www.raiders.com.au/news/2021/05/18/stuart-announces-schneider-will-debut-in-team-meeting/ That's really great. Glad the...

Re: 2021 Canberra Raiders injury/suspension update

Correct. He gets his money and it's cap exempt I have no doubt he would have wanted (May still want) to play out the entirety of his contract, but not a bad consolation prize and good on him for negotiating such a favourable deal - I have no problem with that. I do have a problem with whoever negot...

Re: 2021 Rd 11 V Storm: Teams and Previews

I reckon this could open the door for us to use him as a coach, given that medical retirement needs to be paid out by us. I've always thought he'd make a good backs skills coach, alongside tutoring in goal kicking. The way he's been able to make improvements to certain aspects of his game during his...

Yeah Seb's fine. It's a shame he's come into a garbage team, because we're not seeing how good he could really be. The way he bounced back to help seal the win after his defensive display is the positive he should be taking from it. Good, hard line at pace, with nice footwork. That's exactly what yo...

Re: 2021 Rd 11 V Storm: Teams and Previews

Croker's received so many baths in his time that I don't actually remember them specifically, tbh. Don't recall this MacDougall one at all.

Hopoate gave Seb one on the weekend, which was the first one he's received so far. Hopefully they're few and far between.

Re: 2021 Canberra Raiders injury/suspension update

Does anyone believe he is actually injured? Not enough to keep him out of first grade on that basis alone, no. If there was a will to play him, he'd be playing. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this fairly par for the course in terms of medical retirement. Club knows a guy is busted - and...

I suspect the club is trying to fix all outstanding physical issues before giving him another run, and if he's still no good, then it's curtains

The chasm between the top five and the rest in this competition is enormous - honestly can't remember when the competition was so lopsided last. We'd have to be one of the worst teams ever to be inside the eight at this stage of a season.
