Watching Aussies vs Bangers at the moment. Can't say we lack experience. The only guy in the team under 30 is Tim David at 28.

If you asked any young footy player if they would rather play U19 Origin or NRL 1st grade debut I'd wager the vast majority say the latter.

Re: Meet the league rising star that left the Raiders for the NFL

A few things in his favour. 1. At 20 he'd be close to the youngest guy in their extended squad. Most college players hit the NFL at 21-22. 2. He's got the right frame for an edge defender. While a little light at the moment he could comfortably add another 5-6kg of muscle in their conditioning progr...

Marginal favourites. I'm guessing it's because it's 6th vs 12th. Cowboys on the road with 6 day backup after getting pumped by Warriors. Raiders at home coming off the bye. This is purely form guide observation. No bias or fanspeak.

Re: 2024 Round 15 v Cowboys: Game Day

Interestingly this is only the 2nd time in 5 years the Cowboys have visited Canberra. Last game was early season so this is their first cold weather game in quite some time.

While the Cowboys have a 6-4 W/L record over us in recent times they've enjoyed plenty of home ground advantage.
