Re: Being green

Hey mate, not a bad first effort. My suggestion would be more of your opinions on the game and less commenting like a recap of the match. The people that will watch your weekly segment will be mad Raiders fans that never miss a match so they don't need a summary of the game, your opinions on talking...

Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Game Day

Yeah it will be interesting to see how we go but honestly it is such a ridiculously tight comp, there are no easy games and the Titans will beat plenty up there this year. I don't think we should dismiss this as 'just the Titans with injuries'. You have to appreciate your wins, anyone can beat anyon...

Re: 2019 Rd 2 V Storm: Teams and Previews

Agreed; I'm a bit worried about the short turnaround! Its perhaps the toughest turnaround possible considering their grinding style and the conditions we played in away so still need to fly back. We've just got to deal with it though, no point complaining or feeling hard done by. Turn up with the s...

Re: 2019 Rd 2 V Storm: Teams and Previews

I just really don't care about having a better balanced team if for example we're already down 12-0 when our 2nd best prop comes on. Me and Ricky are never going to agree on this. Come at me clique boys. I've changed my mind on this very issue about 12 times already after a preseason and 1 round. Y...

Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Game Day

My thoughts. Titans unlucky with the halves but that's not our problem. CNK strong. Did brilliantly in maybe the hardest position on the field in those conditions. Cotric quiet. Simmonsen far more capable than I thought. BJ looked good with his efforts in conditions that don't suit him. Jack was in ...

Re: 2019 Rd 1 V Titans: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Regardless i'm getting more confident we'll win. The players have put such an emphasis on this game that they'll be scrapping the entire 80 I reckon.

The problem could be the thud 5 days later. But i'll worry about that uppercut next week.

I'm the same.

Lui was good last year and I think he can come on ...

Yeah Guler is the only big surprise, strange he could've fallen that far out of favour to not even be on the list.

The rest of it is as expected and looks about as good as it can be. No Oldfield is a big blow but let's hope BS is not BS.

Re: Rapana to miss six months with shoulder injury

It would be great to get him back ASAP but this is one where Ricky and the medical staff have to be cautious. Rapana seems like the type of player desperate to get back out there and play, his opinion probably won't be the best one.

Not the worst idea until you consider that the NRL hammer the Raiders harder than any other club. I'd wager that Papali would have been sat down for throwing that moisturiser bottle because technically it COULD be a 11 year offence (in Yemen).
