Happy with that. 1st, 2nd or 3rd who cares - that was a gutsy win. Good skill, good fight - a lot to love about that!

Re: ACT government looks to formalise community in Canberra Raiders contract

I think it's a matter of finding a reasonable balance. There should be an incentive to bring games to Canberra, but the fact that it's bigger than the incentive offered to the two full-time Canberra football teams is ludicrous. For the sake of comparison - does anyone know what the deal the ACT Gove...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I personally think Lodge is a bit of a loss for Broncos, I dont think Roberts will bother the Raiders, it could be a liability considering how injury prone he is, a win over Broncos would be sooo sweet. Raiders by 12 Just get Whitehead to give him the Fergo treatment and he'll be up the tunnel in a...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

This is men vs boys. A big reason the broncos are floundering is their middle has an average age of 12. 20 - Payne Hass 23 - Joe Ofahengaue 19 - David Fifita 19 - Thomas Flegler 21 - Patrick Carrigan 21 - Jaydn Su'A Staggs is 20 and Shibasaki is 21.

Re: ACT government looks to formalise community in Canberra Raiders contract

I mean, in a town like Canberra where there is such a huge non-local born population, it does make sense to incentivise an AFL club to bring some games to town. The city will likely never get its own team and there is clearly a portion of the population who enjoy the sport. The amount to which they...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I also was a bit confused as to why we've gone with Collins ahead of Horsburgh, but then again I couldn't work out why we kept going crashball after crashball on Sunday night and that worked a treat to leave them gassed for the second half. Also, Young has averaged 14 minutes through his first three...

Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews

If we defend like we did against the Eels then we shouldn't have any issues. They're an absolute dogs breakfast with the ball in hand.

In attack, just run traffic at Nikorima and Fat Tony all afternoon, and Darius the Cat will take a dive if we break the line.

Re: 2019 Rd 5 V Eels: Game Day

I was pretty scathing of all the one-off the ruck crashball plays live last night, but this morning with the benefit of a bit of hindsight gee whiz that was some good strategy from Stuart. When you consider they've built their pack around Paulo and other big hitters, you really only needed to do to ...

CNK is shaping very nicely for one of the buys of the season IMO.
Bateman is getting all the wraps but CNK has been just as important to our turnaround, and Sutton has been a big contributor as well.
