Re: Is Ricky Stuart's Raiders rebuild complete?

Further to that, the job is clearly never complete. In 2020 we have 6 key players who are 30 or older - Croker, Hodgson, Whitehead, Soliola, Rapana and Lui. The team is on the verge of another refresh. I think the key difference is we will have ready made replacements for those guys, where in the p...

Re: Canberra Raiders announce Canberra Milk as new major sponsor for 2021

As a marketing person, please don't badmouth "marketing people". This type of thing usually only exists because the club/sponsor has asked for it.

Re: Canberra Raiders announce Canberra Milk as new major sponsor for 2021

I like the Navy and green one but there's no **** way I'd be happy if that's our home jersey.

It should be an alternate strip and that's it.. slap a new Canberra Milk logo on the green one for all I care if they don't want to use the retro logo

Re: 2020 Rd 20 V Sharks: Game Day

I've only skim read last 2 pages above so someone may have mentioned this... but we may have been better off losing to Sharks. Tigers were up for it and if Parra were safe in 4th anyway it may have gone the other way. I was gutted to see Parra run 3rd. They stink. And I think Bunnies in a better sp...

Re: Raiders 2020 regular season observations

Think the fact we went from having no depth, to blooding a bunch of kids who held their own and having good depth is the most positive.

What are the chances of them holding back any tickets for the public?

Other Sports generally use their 2nd tiers to trial rules, like NRL used to do with the 20s

Re: Rugby League 2020

Why don't they just make six again optional? Meaning a team can stop play and kick for touch if they want or play on? Count it as a penalty either way, but six again just becomes an option. I wouldn't mind it being like a free kick in AFL, either you play on and take the advantage or you stop and t...

6 again for offside is a bit far, that's pretty much removed all penalties except scrum and foul play

This may not be popular, but I thought Annesley handled that briefing pretty well. What else could he say? He can only, as he said, look at the black and white of the law.
