Re: NRL blocks Jordan Rapana's return from Japanese union in 2020

So, to be clear, Gallen can box in the off season for money, Cam Smith’s wife can have a $20k diamond ring given to her by the NRL outside the salary cap and Val Homes can throw in the towel with the NFL and join the Cowboys whenever he feels like it but an ageing clubman like Rapana can’t do this. ...

Re: Canberra Raiders 2020 NRL draw

The Dragons were **** putrid last year and an absolute chore to watch - fourth highest number of FTA games.

Such nonsense.

Must say i've never got people's fascination with us getting FTA games. Who cares. Their coverage is diabolical anyway.
Whilst I agree and I watch Fox anyway, it's important for sponsors, and for people - particularly kids who can't just walk down to the pub - who don't have Fox or Kayo.

Shouldn't that Rd 21 game vs Manly be a Nine game too? Don't Nine take the final five weeks of Saturday 7.35 games?

That’s the 4th year in a row we don’t play a game in Newcastle. Incredibly frustrating for me being the only ground within 3 hrs from the North Coast.
I'm 20mins from that ground.

It's super frustrating.

Re: Canberra Raiders prepared to let grand final centre Joey Leilua walk

Oldy would be a starter at most clubs. I would not be too upset with that outside four.

If we get Lomax, it’ll also mean there is genuine competition for spots in the three quarter line.

Re: Is this last straw for anyone?

I thought I was done. Genuinely. That game broke me.

And tonight I met my mate, who I went to the GF with. And he asked one simple question: ‘next season?’

Re: Canberra Raiders preparing to start extending grand final heroes

I guess my biggest concern about this, is it would mean that Rapana doesn't get an off-season at all. If he's getting paid big money for a stint in the Top League, the corporate overlords paying his salary aren't going to let him half-arse it. Especially given that rugby is at the absolute highest i...

Re: Canberra Raiders preparing to start extending grand final heroes

The only clubs that will offer him more than that are the Titans/Bulldogs/Knights.

And if he breaks up the spine that we’ve built to get to a grand final to go to a bottom four side for a few pieces of silver after everything this club for him, that is the ultimate dick move.

I drive an Uber and picked up a passenger to go to the airport today from Melbourne. Offhandedly mentioned I was off to the Grand Final tomorrow and she goes ‘oh, I read in the Herald Sun that they’re way more into the Giants in Canberra than rugby anymore anyway’.
