Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

Everyone is going to go for staggs. He's a beast in attack and fixable in defence (probably) His defensive stats are weird this yr. Great tackle efficiency, very few missed tackles. BUT... this yr, when he missed, teams scored tries. TBF, in a wooden spoon team, thats expected. So, im not worried a...

Re: Off contract Raiders... who to retain, who to release?

Re: 2020 NRL Grand Final: Teams and Game Day

Surprised Kikau has got off quite lightly in the media reporting I’ve seen. His game really epitomised the first half for the Panthers. He would look dangerous and then finish a play with an impatient decision (pass off the ground) or error (number of knock ons). You can’t do that in a GF against t...

Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

I agree with Naden as he can play both centre and wing. If not him James Roberts might be worth a punt - a high risk one I’d admit. The thing with Roberts also is that we could potentially deal with Souths (we have an over abundance of middle forwards and that is probably their weak point) Can't st...

Make a few "controversial" picks, and a few lame errors (year, Crocker).

In their defence some autocorrects often change Croker to Crocker.

Re: Jarrod Croker's goal kicking

The disjointed season could have adversely affected a few players in the NRL. Hard to say really. We won't really know till next year and see who bounces back.

That aside Croker definitely needs to lift in 2021. His form through this year has not been good enough to be an automatic selection.

Re: Jack Wighton - GH fans v Dally M

Dally M judges don't like props and love high profile spine players. Very true. Reputation plays a big part too. The GH voting takes each game on it's merits. Far more accurate reflection of performance over the season. In this instance though I'm happy with the Dally M system flaws. :thumbsup

Jack will finish on 26 then. From memory Cleary was a bit quiet in round 20. He won't be getting 3 points. Can't remember what Gutho did.

Jets showing how tanking is really done. Dolphins couldn't do it properly because they had a good coach. Plenty of speculation Adam Gase will get punted soon. Maybe in their best interests to keep him on board for now. Reports are Trevor Lawrence been speaking with a few New York real estate agents.
