Re: Raiders To Extend Ricky Stuart

I'm still losing my mind. These things need to be viewed in totality and overall his record here hasn't been great - I'd much rather see how this year pans out before making an offer to extend the contract.

Re: The Cricket Thread

Justin Langer is too parochial a Western Australian to drop Bancroft at this stage IMO. However I also agree he should make way for Harris, I'd have Patterson in the line up ahead of him as well.

Let's forget all this crap and just focus on Manly. Otherwise they absolutely will sneak under the radar and ambush us.

Re: The Cricket Thread

If we draw this test it will be a miracle with our shoddy batting line up.

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Yeah exactly that's what I'm getting at it feels like when the team plays away they get into that siege mentality and there's no complacency. of course it is years of inconsistent performances that make me feel just a little wary, but we have been a lot better this year. I just feel like the weight ...

Re: 2019 Rd 23 V Sea Eagles: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

NRL com in its match preview stated that we had a strong record at home and gave us a 2 point win. I actually have less confidence in our home record than our away performances at the moment

I really hope we come good on the weekend.

Re: Jarrod Croker on 100% Footy

To be fair he has 20 years worth of evidence to doubt us. I don't mind him at all but I also don't see much of him as we no longer get any Channel 9 coverage in NZ. Ken rogerworthy, he was specifically asked about our performance on the weekend and its quality and he completely evaded the question.

He's only their primary target because he's so damn good.

Regarding Steve Waugh, there weren't too many players who were consistently as good as him under pressure. None I can recall actually.

Re: The Cricket Thread

Lara was one of my favourite batsmen to watch when he got going. Flamboyant backlift and aggressive style of play - probably not as consistent as Tendulkar but played some amazing innings (he single handedly dragged the windies back into a test series against Australia in 1999 from memory - Steve Wa...

Re: The Cricket Thread

Even if Smith plays, Labu should be in there based on that one innings alone. Harris in for Bancroft who has no idea.

Khawaja is useless but not really any better options are there.

Top order is useless.

Bancroft is gone, Usman -I said after the last test he drove me nuts and you can see why just doesn't contribute enough.

Surely they have to pick marnus, showed guts

I just re-watched the replay of the match - can I just say Braith Anasta is an absolutely woeful commentator, in my humble opinion. Not just for his lack of accurate insight, but his sound effects and talking over the head commentator at key moments is just amateurish.
