Re: Jarrod Croker's goal kicking

Croker been 80%+ throughout his career which is quite an achievement. Last year dropped to around 72% I believe. Certainly an aberration by his standards. I think he had the Goalkicker equivalent of the yips. Still a few teams wouldn't mind a 72% kicker right now. He's back on track this year and ki...

Re: NRL fines Ivan Cleary $20,000 for questioning referee's integrity

Some people won’t like this, but I think Refs have been too keen to manage games over the last few years when one team has a big lead.

Re: Canberra Raiders centre Curtis Scott denies he is heading to Canterbury Bulldogs

Yep, our centres haven't been great with the ball this year, but we still need to get a bit more structure out of our halves now that Hodgo is out.

Re: Let's be proud of our team!

I think the only area Sezer squeaks ahead of Williams is structured passing. Williams needs to mix his loopy pass to the winger with a hard and fast pass to his second rower and centre. Also Sezer had a pass back inside that worked sometimes too. Nothing George Williams can’t develop further. I’d a...

Re: Let's be proud of our team!

To the eye Williams looks like a really significant upgrade on Sezer. But as a team we're really struggling with our attack on the opposition line and putting players into space doesn't seem to be a strength of Williams. Far more threatening with ball in hand and a slightly better kicking game is w...

Re: ARLC chairman Peter V'landys says Ivan Cleary should be fined for comments

To me Ivan Cleary's comments suggest the Refs were trying to engineer outcomes in the match. ie manipulating to get a result.
