Re: Corey Harawira-Naera reportedly on the Raiders radar

I was initially opposed to CHN, but the more you read about it the more it’s clear that he got swept up in the circus surrounding Okunbor. CHN broke club policy and did something stupid. Okunbor did something that, whilst not illegal, was very very icky. He would do a good job for us, and at much le...

Re: Declining depth

I see there is a plan being considered to shift the entire league to Queensland if this NSW hotspot flares up the way it has in Victoria.

Given Papalli and Tapine refused the flu shot I doubt they'll let them go. That'll do more wonders for our depth.

Re: 2020 Rd 10 V Roosters: Teams and Previews

I think we probably have to put Scott back in and use the rest of the season to help him find form. If he’s going to command this much of our cap, we have to find a way to use him.

Re: Declining depth

Would Vaughan play for Stick? I don't think he left on the best of terms.

Also, he has been poor this season at the Dragons. Well, they've all been poor this season at the Dragons, but he's not really putting in much of an effort from what I'm seeing.

Re: OFFICIAL: Bateman 'won't be at Raiders in 2021'

So, to sum up;

-He’s shot his reputation with the fan base.
-His antics have cost him $80k per year.
-He will have to play for the rabble that is Canterbury to even get that money.

Good one Jonneh, good one.

Great footballer - but I’ll remember him the same way I remember Dugan and Ferguson.
