Re: Sam Williams eager to continue NRL career after Raiders departure

I wish Sam all the best as well. However, this thread does highlight to me I have a different interest in the raiders than many of my fellow supporters. Many seem to value the effort, loyalty, longevity and passion Sam brought to the club and while I respect that it isn’t something I feel I could b...

Thanks for the replies.
