Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

Im firmly of the opinion that we need to resign BJ and 600k sounds about right for the 2 time centre of the year. He is only 28 so has plenty of good football in front of him. However, if sezer can keep playing like he did last night, youd be tempted to keep him in the side with williams and move j...

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs want to sign Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua

Leilua is a gun 600k is pretty cheap given the performance he gives you. We win so many games from the danger of our right side.

EW is a gun. All effort all the time. Sign him up! I can see the 'green shoots' in Sutton, while I appreciate he hasn't had the instant impact as the other Poms, he needs another season IMO to be properly judged. fair enough, imo judge him after that season even if it means paying a bit more.

The obvious side, with Tapine over Sutton and Guler over Lui. I'm on the fence about Havilli Vs Simo, I think Havilli may make more sense against the Storm.
Tapine is underrated on here and Sutton overrated.

I’m surprised at people’s reactions to the game last night. The Roosters should have had that wrapped up by half time - they bombed three absolutely certain tries, dropping balls over the line. They were missing their best playmaker in Keary, and, they had nothing to play for. They will be signific...

i agree with pigrickman regarding the refs, they were fine and if anything favoured us.

The chooks had just a little bit more quality then us, but I think with Cotric going back to his natural side and BJ coming back in hopefully we have the extra try or to in us that might be enough to get us home.
