Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

waqa blake picked up by the eels.

Kris will be interesting for me, didnt see enough of him in his game to make a call, though size wise he seemed small... well smaller then waqa blake.

Re: 2019 Rd 15 V Eels: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I would be a bit more confident with oldfield then kris. Oldfield has never let us down.

Has anyone seen much of kris in centres in the lower grades?

Re: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart calls on Andrew Barr to build new Canberra stadium

I have been to bankwest twice and imo it is easily a better view then canberra.

Canberra has great atmosphere from the viking clap and horn of helmsdeep.

But the incline is pretty average at canberra.

Re: Current dummy half

to me for us to be successful regardless of whether its williams or sezer out there, once we are in the red zone we have to shift the ball to where there is space as opposed to just playing off the front down the middle all the time.

Last night was the best performance from both halves in green I can remember in a long long time.
