Re: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart signs four-year contract extension

Why don't you look up our ladder position when Ricky got his 2022 extension. That will give you a clue. Hint: they announced it in July 2022. For this extension, someone also posted the following: "164 points let in the last five games... 32.8 a game.... 76 points scored... 15.2 a game...Durin...

Re: 2024 Round 13 v Dolphins: Teams and Previews

This weekends game means we’ve been to Qld more times then the Dolphins have left QLD this season, with the two Dolphins trips to NT and NZ. Crazy stuff. Interesting. Even more so that the Dolphins are yet to play in Sydney with the Eels game being in Darwin. For the record a trip to Townsville mig...

Re: Raiders All-Time Top 10 Tries

Depends on the criteria. Are we talking the quality of the try in a vacuum or in context of the situation? Steve Jackson try certainly fits the bill for the latter. In isolation it's not overly spectacular. Drop ball, he receives the pass and barges through a few back pedalling defenders.

Isaiah Papalii doesn't get me as excited as it would have a couple of years ago but if true it's a good signing imo.

They have to be chasing Wayne, punting your coach is basically saying you are giving up on this season.

I noticed Crossland getting away with that in round 1 against us. I've seen him do it regularly since. Refs simply aren't calling him offside.

Re: 2024 NRL Round 11: Teams and Game Day

You could see the ball move but no angle showed the ball leave his arm. Bunker shouldn't overturn live decision on those. We don't see all the vision the bunker has They usually show the decisive vision when they make the final call. The fact it took so long suggests there was no clear footage.
