Re: Who would you prefer to play in the Preliminary Final?

While the Bunnies got schooled one the weekend it was only a week before that they beat the Chooks by bashing them out of the game. That game meant nothing to the Roosters. They gave as many asterisks as Raiders against Warriors. I wouldn’t base anything on that result. I know Keary wasn't there bu...

Re: Grand final tickets

Just had a look at tickets and they genuinely don't miss you! If we make it I will be trying desperately to get in on the Raiders allocation with everyone else. They are rubbish seats but I'd rather have a crap view with the mad raiders crew than see the game any other way. To be fair the whole of ...

Re: The Cricket Thread

Those rating are fairly close but agree on those couple you have pointed out . Wade at 7.5 is too high. For no5/6 bat you need them to score more consitently and he failed too often when we needed him. His century in the 1st test was classic flat track bully stuff as the Poms only had Broad, Woakes,...

Re: John Bateman - Best first season in Raiders history?

Mal Meninga came to the club in 1986... and that year was great, but it wasn't his best... and the Raiders didn't make the finals, finishing towards the bottom of the ladder. But there have been a lot of great first seasons... Ricky Stuart won club Player of the Year in 1988 in his debut season, an...

Re: 2019 Preliminary Final: Teams and Previews

I have to say... if I were a member of the Rabbitohs or Sea Eagles... I'd be pretty annoyed if they gave Raiders members first shot at tickets, and before we'd even played the other team. Hard to see the NRL agreeing to that idea. Whatever arrangement is made would not be able to affect the member ...

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

It does annoy me that we have Leilua locked into a contract for next season and this move could force us to release him early. I’m thinking perhaps we need to release him early? CNK upgrade, G Williams and whatever other negotiation are taking place may mean we need to free up BJ $$ now? Geez it wo...

Re: Croker's kicking

On the original topic. Croker has consistently been an 80%+ kicker so there's little doubt he's down on form this year at 73%. By comparison to the other 5 teams remaining the 2019 % are: Adam Reynolds 83% Cam Smith 82% Mitch Moses 77% Rueben Garrick 77% Latrell Mitchell 76% A-Rey and Smith are well...

Re: Croker's kicking

Didn't Peter Handscombe have a better average than Bradman after his first test series? Big difference between having "a good run" and sustaining that level of performance over a whole career.

Jennings repaying the faith from Parra.

Lost all form last season, which was fair given his age. But worked hard it and is playing some golden footy.
He's been very up and down this season. It's still been a marked improvement on what he's done last couple of years.
